So, this potential project on HBO Max could be its own self-contained universe, separate from whatever is moving forward with this new continuity Warner Bros. plans to establish after The Flash. Considering that Ben Affleck seemed to only take the role of Batman again for The Flash after revising his parts of the script and it being a minor role compared to a cameo, it’s doubtful that Affleck would want to return for a bigger, more time consuming project.
Entertainment writer @BlackMajikMan90 reported that those in charge of HBO Max, depending on the success of Justice League Director’s Cut, are interested in Ben Affleck returning as Batman, but that “the ball is in his court.”
HBO Max is interested in some kind of Batfleck continuation.
However, Ben Affleck has not given any sort of decision yet and has not confirmed if he is interested. The ball is in his court.
