The Flash, starring Ezra Miller, hit theatres on June 16. Barry Allen utilizes the Speed Force to try to prevent his mother from being killed in the stand-alone movie but unintentionally alters history in the process. The movie generated a lot of buzz before it came out since it revived several iconic characters from the universe, including Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck’s Batman.

Fans of the earlier Batman versions were thrilled to see them, but Christian Bale’s appearance was the most anticipated of them all. But to their dismay, none of the four Batmans who appeared in The Flash were Christian Bale.

The involvement of Christian Bale in The Flash was all speculation

One of the most cherished and recognizable depictions of the character in movie history is Christian Bale‘s version of Batman. His portrayal in the superhero genre in the Dark Knight trilogy helped redefine it. Fans were naturally thrilled when it was revealed that Bale was in talks to reprise his role as Batman in the movie The Flash. But this information was nothing more than conjecture.

Kevin Smith, the director, and a superhero aficionado, in an original episode of his podcast, made a wild guess that Warner Bros. had been “asking Christian Bale for, like, months and months” to star in The Flash but that he had eventually declined. Additionally, he said that the movie’s ending had been filmed with George Clooney playing Batman at the very last moment as a fallback, in case Bale declined to participate in the cameo.

However, Smith later clarified his remarks on Twitter, saying they were “just conjecture, not inside information.” Additionally, he sent a link to a Hollywood Reporter article confirming that The Flash’s climax was filmed six months before the recording of Smith’s podcast episode making it clear that Bale’s involvement was nothing more than wishful thinking.

There has been a lot of backlash over The Flash‘s poor box office results. The Hollywood Reporter referred to the movie as an “unmitigated disaster,” and Variety remarked that viewers may be “growing tired of comic book movies altogether.” The Flash‘s weak box office performance could be caused by a variety of factors. Critics have given the movie a mixed bag of reviews; many have criticized its complex plot and uneven tone. The latest controversy surrounding Miller, who has been detained numerous times recently, has also cast a shadow over the movie.
