    I wondered that too. I looked up the full interview.

    No, Ben Affleck said The Flash contains his favorite scene or moment from his whole time playing Batman. So his own work.

    A piece of set dressing from Batgirl reveals that Keaton's Batman got a Robin at some point. Not Marlon Wayans though...

    Honestly, I'd have enjoyed a reference to Wayans being Robin in Keaton's universe, even though I'm glad he never actually got to play the role back in the day (I just don't think hes a very good actor, and I can't see him having much chemistry with Keaton).

    Ugh, they couldn't get the Batsuit right. I hate that chin cover version. Actually, it looks like they just didn't bother and ripped this from some DCU animated movie blu ray cover.

    Well, it's a mural, isn't it?! It's not an actual photo or something, it's supposed to be an artist's interpretation of two mysterious figures, presumably without a lot of photo reference to work with. It would actually be odd in-universe if the artist got the details right.

    To me it just looks like the shadow on the chin, not a chin cover (see how the colour pretty much matches the shadow on the skin on the right?).

    Regardless. Like mentioned above, it's not an actual photo, just art on the side of a building.

    You are far more intelligent that anyone who is either 1) thrilled that this gives them what they want or 2) outraged by this

    We have no idea what this means yet. No idea what changes the Flash movie will cause. Or if Keaton’s character is part of new rewritten timeline or a visitor from alternate Earth.

    Heck, that art could be promotion for an in universe fictionalized Batman movie. There is a Robin in that movie but no actual Robin in that world…

    total out of left field guess. If I am right I am reminding everyone! LOL

    To further that point, for all we know Wayans was the Robin of Keaton's universe, but because there never were particularly public appearances and photographs, people just did their usual white-washing thing. I mean, people think Jesus and St. Nicholas were white.

    Uh, ... thanks?!

    ...

    Is that a high bar? Doesn't feel like it's a high bar.

    It was meant as a real compliment. You were right. We do not know what this means yet.

    There’s no reason to believe that Dick Grayson didn’t look like Wayans (or even the person who played him, Chris O’Donnell!) and that this is a pic of Jason Todd or even Tim Drake or Damian Wayne from later years.

    Ben Affleck has said that his close friend Matt Damon helped him to make his decision to step down from his DCEU role as Batman.

    https://screenrant.com/ben-affleck-batman-role-exit-matt-damon-advice/

    He just wasn't having fun during Justice League and it was an awful experience(Divorce, Director change, Director and him disagreeing on things) He doesn't mention Joss Whedon and the allegations by Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot.

    Why base the suit on that comic run? That was a terrible run. It made me want the Joker to shoot her again.

    Hopefully she gets a better one later on.
