While photos of Ben Affleck on vacation are currently making their rounds online, one interesting character has been spotted on the set of The Flash currently shooting in Glasgow—Batman.
Take note though, this doesn’t look like Keaton’s Batman; and some are guessing that it’s the one and only Batfleck:

With the new photos of Affleck coming out at the same time, it’s very likely that this isn’t Affleck in the suit. Since this looks to be a stunt job, we shouldn’t really expect Affleck to be suited up for these scenes anyway—then again, we’re still not sure if this character is supposed to be Batfleck. That being said, his build is a lot closer to the Batman in Justice League, and his new Batpod has the same feel as the DCEU Batmobile.
For now, the plot of the Flash movie is still under wraps, but the presence of multiple versions of superheroes has people convinced that it will establish a multiverse storyline. I’m just hoping that Batfleck makes it out of this movie alive. I don’t want the character to be killed early in the film, and have Flash be amazed when he meets another version of Batman—kind of like what happened with Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
It’s taken a while for The Flash to finally start production, and hopefully this time WB has a more solid direction when it comes to the DCEU pushing forward.
The Flash is set to hit theaters on Nov. 4, 2022. The next DCEU film, The Suicide Squad comes out Aug. 6 in theaters and on HBO Max.
