It looks like The Flash will wrap today, or at least by the end of this week. As with all these big movies, we are sure there are planned reshoots, but for now it seems the majority of principal photography is complete. The Flash will feature the return of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, but also at least two versions of Batman, the Batfleck Batman from the Justice League movie, and also Michael Keaton’s Batman from the 89 era.

There’s been talk of how big a role Batfleck, aka Ben Affleck may have in The Flash? A stunt double was seen riding a Bat Bike in the early days of location shooting. However, Affleck himself was never seen on set. Now KC Walsh of The GWW says that Affleck flew in, filmed his scenes inside a week and then went home again.
Affleck only filmed on The Flash for like a week, are people really still pushing he is more than an extended cameo? pic.twitter.com/B4aOXobZNR

I have heard similar elsewhere that Affleck was not around long. However we at least know he has a big action scene in the movie, one would presume closer to the start. My guess is Affleck will appear in the early part of the movie before Barry completely messes up the timeline and essentially does away with Batfleck, at least for the majority of the runtime. As to whether Affleck will ever don the cape and cowl again, who knows? There are rumors that Keaton will take over as Batman in whatever reality Barry leaves things in. However those are just rumors and there are others that say Affleck could return eventually. I guess we will have to wait to see how the movie unfolds first?
To summarize, The Flash to wrap soon, and Batfleck filmed his scenes inside a week. React, speculate or whatever you want in the usual spot below.
