Outside of the trailer, Scooper Grace Randolph, driven by what her sources say, first reported that the film’s flashpoint story line would replace Ben Affleck with DCEU’s Batman in the running.

According to Randolph, Keaton’s Batman will serve as a mentor to Barbara Gordon, who will instead serve as the “field” DCEU bat person. This could lead him to a similar position to Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a role that everyone is rumored to have at the table, looking at the possibility of a live-action Batman Beyond Adaptation.

Randolph indicated that this shift in focus from Bruce to Barbara led DC Film director Walter Hamda to believe that Butgirl was considered a “risky asset” and that the film would deviate from its original source material in much the same way as bird hunting. Has done, thanks to author Christina Hudson for her involvement.

“Christina Hudson writes Flashpoint, which brings Keaton and Batgirl back,” Randolph wrote. “Plus he wrote the bird of prey and it changes the source material in exactly the same vein.”

But the story of Keaton’s return does not end there

In a series of Instagram slideshows, the film industry and superhero-centric podcast Lightcast opposed Randolph’s report, saying that Keaton was not replacing “any Batman” with “primary” Batman, as “Flash” would also include Affleck Batman. Has even contributed to helping develop the script “and” will be seen on HBO Max “.

It should be noted that the Lightcast did not specify whether the Snyder cut or its proposed spinoff ministries mentioned Affleck’s impending presence.

Lightcast also mentions that Robert Pattinson’s incarnation in Batman will be a single version of the Dark Knight – the one we’ve known for some time that exists on Cable & Earth-2’s “His World.” No.

“This is the beginning of the multiverse concept,” Lightcast said. “One is not replacing the other.”

In a reprimand from numerous sites who announced that Keaton Hall would completely replace Affleck, Lightcase announced that “false headlines and reporting were very good when trying to gaslight and misleading readers with false information that was not present in the false new.” York Times article. “

Lightcast explained, “The original article never talked about two Batmans being the ones to get the movie franchise.” And Brooks simply answered a Twitter user’s question with “Ketan” who sent out Internet blogs to guess and create their own confirmation: You’ll see soon enough. “

In Walter Hamada, New York Times writer Brooks Burns explains how he started all this, how he made his comments about Keaton’s Batman performance clear.

First, when journalist and film critic Nestor Bentankar was asked on Twitter if he was referring to some part of the two bat-franchises running simultaneously or Keaton not centering on the Dark Knight, Burns simply replied, “Keaton.”

There was a wave of hit stories on the web based on that one tweet and Burns didn’t fix the record until Monday. He tweeted that he was referring to “* a picture *” (The Flash) Keaton and would put more information in his article.

With a victory in their lap with a bow in their coverage, Lightcast wrote on the final slide of their second post, “This should be a text for every reader and follower of a particular website blog or trade. Analyze your own rhetorical analysis of what you are reading. The context is very important, always ask “what,” “when”, “why”, “who” and “how” and understand the principles, patho, logos and Cairo of posting information. “

So from that it probably isn’t replacing Affleck, although we can’t say for sure whether their own presence in Capped Crusader The Flash will be past.

With Batgirl and many other DC spin-offs present, WB is probably moving to a wait-and-see approach there. They have taken the same step towards Snyder Cut, as they are looking forward to moving on to different projects based on the film as being considered a success by the right metric.
