Ben Affleck will again be donning Batman’s iconic cape and cowl. ET can confirm that Affleck has agreed to return as the Caped Crusader for a final time forThe Flash, a stand-alone film, alongside Ezra Miller, who stars as the super-fast superhero.

Affleck — who previously delivered his dark take on the iconic vigilante in Batman v Superman and Justice League — will be appearing in a cameo role. He previously cameoed as Batman for a brief scene in 2016’s Suicide Squad.

After long planning on portraying Batman in a stand-alone film of his own, Affleck eventually moved on from the role, and Robert Pattinson was cast to play a young Bruce Wayne in director Matt Reeves’ The Batman.

ET has learned that Affleck’s appearance in The Flash will have no impact on Pattinson’s take on the character, as The Batman is a completely separate project and is still considered the future of the franchise.

The Flash will feature the titular speedster using his super speed to crash through various dimensions and timelines, and is expected to include multiple iterations of several DC heroes who have been featured on the big screen over the years.
