Ben Affleck's Batman: a misunderstood interpretation

Ben Affleck's Batman: a misunderstood interpretation
The announcement that more than one Batman will appear in the future Flash movie has fallen like a bombshell on Bat Man fans. After the first hopes that seemed to lead to the presence of the Flashpoint version of Batman, we finally arrived at the confirmations: the Scarlet Sprinter should meet two versions of the Dark Knight 'cinematic' rather different, especially in the hearts of fans: Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck.

Seeing Michael Keaton wearing the Gotham Crusader suit again is a joy that unites everyone. While not historically the first to wear Bats' cloak in theaters, Keaton was one of the forerunners of that modern cinematic genre known as cinecomic, with Tim Burton's Batman dated 1989. Lewis Wilson and Robert Lowery wore the costume of the Bat in conjunction with the comic book Golden Age, bequeathing Adam West the role, in that psychedelic adventure that made the Dark Knight a Pop icon, including bat-repellents for sharks and dancing like bat-oxis.

Michael Keaton, the cinematic Batman par excellence

Only in 1989 came a Batman who best interpreted the dark atmospheres of the double life of the hero of Gotham. Keaton was, together with the late Christopher Reeve with his Superman, the face of comics at the cinema, opening up a new season of superheroes in cinemas. If Reeve was so iconic that it even became the inspiration for the designers of the Man of Steel of the period, Keaton was sublime in conveying the duality of the character, best conveying the complexity of Batman. Gigionish in the role of Bruce, capable of giving a dramatic tone when needed, culminating in his incredible interpretation of the 'true' soul of the character, Batman (because we all know that the mask is Bruce).
