Ben Affleck Says Playing Batman in The Flash Was 'Fun' After 'Difficult' Justice League Shoot

After playing Batman twice, Ben Affleck says his second turn as the superhero was more enjoyable than the first.

Affleck, 49, first starred as Batman in 2017’s Joss Whedon film Lega della Giustizia. Ora, anni dopo, he’s set to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Il flash, an upcoming film directed by Andy Muschietti and starring Ezra Miller.

The actor told Varietà he enjoyed playing the DC hero again, spiegando, “It was a really nice way to revisit that as the prior experience had been difficult.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Cried on Buona Volontà Caccia Set: ‘We Actually Accomplished Something

While he didn’t go into detail about his experience working on Lega della Giustizia, Affleck’s co-star on the film, Ray Fisher, came forward last summer with allegations of abuse and bullying on set, accusando Whedon, 57, di “schifoso, abusivo, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” comportamento. Gal Gadot has also spoken out, sharing during in an interview with Israeli news outlet N12 published May 8, that Whedon threatened her career while working on Lega della Giustizia. “I had my issues with Joss, and I handled it,” Gadot said. “He threatened my career and said that if I do something, he will make sure my career is miserable and I took care of it on the spot.

Whedon has not addressed the allegations and a rep for the producer has not returned PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Affleck, who spoke to Varietà at a screening for his upcoming film Il Tender Bar, added that working on Il flash dopo Lega della Giustizia was really lovely” e “really fun.

I had a great time,” Lui continuò, prima di scherzare, “I’m probably under some gag order that I’m not even aware that I probably just violated and I’m now going to be sued.

Affleck also praised Miller, 29, who plays titular character Barry Allen in the film adaptation of DC’s 2011 Flashpoint comic series.

I love Ezra,” Affleck said, adding that he enjoyed shooting the film in the U.K. since he could see Jason Momoa,who’s over there making Aquaman [and the Lost Kingdom].

When Affleck’s Il flash casting news was first announced last summer, Muschietti, the film’s director, revealed Batman’s link to the story, spiegando a Fiera della vanità that the character brings a newemotional levelto the film.

“[Affleck’s] Batman has a dichotomy that is very strong, which is his masculinity—because of the way he looks, and the imposing figure that he has, and his jawline —but he’s also very vulnerable,” Muschietti told Fiera della vanità. “He knows how to deliver from the inside out, that vulnerability. He just needs a story that allows him to bring that contrast, that balance.

Il flash is also set to feature another former Batman star; Muschietti promised that Michael Keaton — who played the dark superhero in 1989 e 1992 — will play asubstantialrole in the film. Il flash is currently in production, but is set for a 2022 premiere date.
