Now, the multiverse is a common thing to watch, and it’s also trendy. Means a superhero what we have seen in the movies, the same superhero coming from another Universe making it a real hit. But studios like Marvel and DC they using the old movies character and bring them back in the Multiversal collaboration movie, like Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Flash, etc. In Spider-Man: No Way Home we get to see old villains of previous Spider-Man movies and two more Spider-Mans, Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man played earlier. In the Flash movie, we get to see many other characters whom we have seen before in their solo movies like Michael Keaton’s Batman. But many rumor comes in saying that Christian Bale, who has also played Batman, is going to play a role in The Flash movie.
Christian Bale is one of the greatest actors. Fans loved to see Christian Bale’s Batman. Christian Bale did his last Batman movie in 2012 which is The Dark Knight Rises. Now, as per rumors, he can come again as Batman in The Flash movie. In the Flash movie, we get to see Michael Keaton’s Batman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. This will be the last appearance of Ben Affleck’s Batman. Though these two Batman can then why Christian Bale’s Batman can’t appear. But, there is also some possibility that Christian Bale can’t reprise his role as Batman in The Flash movie.
The reasons why Christian Bale’s Batman can’t appear in the Flash?
The Flash is the most awaited movie for DC fans. The Flash movie not only shows Flash but many other superheroes and explores the Multiverse of DC. In this movie, we get to see Michael Keaton’s Batman who is a great and well-known Batman. But, Christian Bale is also famous for his role as Batman. And as per rumors, Christian Bale’s Batman will appear in The Flash movie. But there are some reasons for Christian Bale appearing in The Flash movie being just a rumor.
The first reason is Christian Bale is busy doing the shooting of Marvel Studios Thor: Love and Thunder as he is playing the role of the main antagonist, Gorr The God Butcher, and the movie is releasing on July 7th, 2022. Christian Bale went in for reshoots after the movie wrapped its filming. So, for that, he didn’t get time to play a role in The Flash movie as Bruce Wayne a.k.a Batman.
The second reason is the budget of the movie. As they have already spent money to make the movie and give money to actors. And they already hired Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton and so many big appearing in this movie so they don’t have a lot of money to take Christian Bale who is also a great actor as Batman in The Flash movie which is releasing in theatres on June 23rd, 2023.
The final important reason why Christian Bale’s Batman rumor is debunked is the thoughts of fans. Many fans think The Flash movie is trying to copy Spider-Man: No Way Home. In Spider-Man: No Way Home we get to see three Spider-Mans, Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. And in the Flash movie, they take Christian Bale as Batman, then there will be three Batman, Ben Affleck’s Batman, Michael Keaton’s Batman, and Christian Bale’s Batman. Fans will think that this is a complete copy of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Kevin Smith who is an American filmmaker, YouTuber, and Podcaster has told in a podcast about the possibility of Christian Bale’s role as Batman in The Flash movie. His words are noted below.
“This Flash movie they’re setting up with Michael Keaton being Batman, that will bring tears to my eyes. That is my Batman!… If they want to do a No Way Home, though, they better bring in Christian Bale as well, though. If I’m them, I’m backing a money truck up to Christian Bale just begging to get him for two minutes so we can have our own No Way Home.”Kevin Smith’s words in that podcast show.
Considering this movie is all about The Flash, many fans are going to see the Batmans. As many fans will get to see Michael Keaton’s Batman and Ben Affleck’s Batman who is doing his last Batman role. Though two Batmans are confirmed in this movie, many rumor comes that Christian Bale could appear in The Flash movie. But for many reasons, this could get debunked. One of the main reasons is the thoughts of fans as they will think they are trying to copy Spider-Man: No Way Home. But he is also busy with the reshoots of Thor: Love and Thunder, so he didn’t get time to do a role in that movie. If Christian Bale is in The Flash movie, we shall find out when the movie gets released.
