If the allegations circulating on Twitter are true, we may not see Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck reprise their roles as Superman and Batman. Following social media remarks from insiders who saw an early edit of the upcoming film ‘The Flash,’ starring Ezra Miller as the speedster, it has been reported that both actors have been eased out of the DC Universe. Grace Randolph, a film reviewer, posted a series of thoughts, claiming that the film is Affleck’s final appearance and includes old Cavill footage.
There were also a lot of spoilers pouring in. He wrote on Twitter: “As I have told u, w/update: #TheFlash Batfleck’s final appearance. Old footage of Cavill used on TV. New Justice League formed. Supergirl is the new Superman. Keaton working w/ Black Canary, picks Batgirl as the new Batman. This is new DC, let’s be open-minded & give it a fair shot”. Another Twitter account, MyTimeToShineHello, echoed Randolph’s remarks, claiming that both stars were gone and that the new film will erase all of Zack Snyder’s efforts.
According to Randolph’s tweet, the actors’ characters will be removed from the DCEU. It appears that their time is over, with the tweet concentrating on Supergirl and Batgirl (not Batwoman) as the two new replacements for the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight. Within the DCEU, Affleck starred in four films as Batman, while Cavill starred in three.
In ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and the ‘Justice League,’ the two shared screen time. According to other reports, Cavill has expressed an interest in reprising his role whenever it is required. “I do still have the outfit,” he replied in an interview with Lorraine when asked if the clothing was still in his wardrobe. “Just in case, yes I do, yes I do. Ready and waiting for the phone call.”
Mille will play Barry Allen/The Flash one more. While Cavill will not reprise his role as Superman/Clark Kent in the film, Affleck will play Bruce Wayne/Batman, and this will be his final appearance as the Dark Knight. Michael Keaton’s Batman will also return, reprising his role from 1989’s ‘Batman’ and 1992’s ‘Batman Returns.’
On November 4, 2022, ‘The Flash’ will be released.
