It will be remembered that we all decided to call him “Batfleck” when we still believed that the story with Zack Snyder would last a long time.
Ben Affleck is the only actor in movie history to play Batman. no film just for him. Yes, he was an assistant to Superman, the Flash, the Joker and the rest of the Justice League, but his solo movie has always been on top. With the DC Extended Universe now completely destroyed and Affleck making it clear that your superhero wishes will never come true It is then that we can understand what he wanted to do and, above all, why he chose a very specific villain as his antagonist: Deathstroke.
death after death
Initially Affleck himself was going to direct his film, but in the end he turned it down and gave DC the chance to make The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson. It was then that the actor spoke a little about the version of the superhero that he would like to do and what I would have Deathstroke as the villain.
After he introduced him on Instagram and in the post-credits of Zack Snyder’s Justice League with Joe Manganiello’s face, it became obvious who would face Batman if everything was his natural course. The reason, as Ben Affleck stated at Zack Snyder’s Full Circle event, is that there are only two possibilities when it comes to making a Caped Crusader movie: “Either you have a huge villain so formidable that you have no idea how your main character will be able to defeat him Or you have one of those big bands that have all sorts of different characters.”
So I tried to focus on this character in depth and detail, to make it look as impressive as I felt I had the opportunity to make it. This is the only detail I have for you.
This isn’t the only time Affleck has spoken about Deathstroke. At the time, he told Collider that “He’s a great villain. I have an intuition that I would pair well with him. I’m also a big fan of this characterespecially what they did to him in the New 52 and I think that might have worked.” It was Manganiello himself who spoke about what could have been and was not at Justice Con in 2021: Slade Wilson would kill one by one people very close to Bruce Wayne. because she will blame him for the death of her son. Deathstroke may have a future under James Gunn, but it will be without Ben Affleck. Maybe in an alternate universe of The Flash…
