‘The Flash’ Batman Finally Gets a Blue Suit in New Trailer
Published on February 13th, 2023 | Updated on February 13th, 2023 | By FanFest
It’s ironic that the most talked about feature of The Flash’s highly anticipated solo movie is Batman. After all, since 1989 we have been inundated with big-screen versions of the Dark Knight, so it’s disheartening that Barry Allen will only get a bat-focused moment in his time to shine.
With the iconic Michael Keaton’s Batman back in his signature cape and cowl, kicking more baddies than one would expect from a 71-year-old superhero, who could complain? And that’s not all – Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne is also joining us for some blockbuster fun! Get ready to be immersed in an action-packed Dark Knight-style motorcycle chase on a highway. We can’t wait!
As if that wasn’t enough to get Batman fans excited, this trailer presents another historic element: for the first time since 1966, we will be seeing a blue and gray Bat-costume on screen! Not only that but there’s two of them – one featured in Keaton’s collection, while Affleck dons another. Fans have responded positively with resounding enthusiasm at this exciting reveal.
Oh snap there was a blue & grey bat suit in the Flash Trailer

Ben Affleck presents his version:
The Flash not only looks amazing but it gave us a grey/blue Batman suit and that’s all that matters. #TheFlash #TheFlashMovie #batman pic.twitter.com/P3fGRB93xA

Fans of the Batman franchise are raving about the variety in these shots, particularly praising the iconic outfit from Batman Returns.
Affleck's Batman having the gray/blue suit in The Flash is kind of interesting, even if it looks kinda weird in the 1 second screen capture. pic.twitter.com/f0ji4avBFw

Jim Lee must be proud:
Saw the TV spot for #TheFlash and I love this armory. Having the original '89 and '92 #Batman suits alongside some alternate uniforms, including nods to Flashpoint and his early comic book appearances, plus the classic blue/gray, desert, and underwater versions is really cool. pic.twitter.com/kiRrXvjBAg

This is a refreshing alternative to the matte black that has become so common on our screens.
Wait! Are we getting @BenAffleck Batman in a @JimLee Blue and Grey suit!?!? @JamesGunn #TheFlashMovie #Batman #Batfleck @theFlash pic.twitter.com/cdyBhQlNiD

After so long of asking for a Blue & Grey Live-Action BatMan suit we’re finally getting it in The Flash, Ben Affleck will be wearing… this trailer look phenomenal and I think this could be a great movie….

Speculation continues that Affleck and Keaton will be accompanied by a third Batman in The Flash, with Christian Bale being the prime contender. Unfortunately, George Clooney has seemingly declined to reprise his role after the misfire of Batman & Robin while Val Kilmer’s health struggle is making it unlikely he could proceed due to its impact on his voice.
Bale has indicated that he would only return to the iconic Gotham City if Christopher Nolan was also attached, yet one never knows for sure. We are all excitedly waiting in anticipation to determine whether his words hold and whether this dream will come to a realization.
To avoid any additional Ezra Miller drama, it would have been wise to completely remove him from the movie and simply call it Into the Bat-Verse.
The Flash hits theaters on Jun. 15.
