Even with The Batman debuting in theaters next year, a new animated series, and countless comics, fans are still eager to see more of DC's Batman. This seems to especially be true for Ben Affleck's portrayal of DC's Dark Knight, who appeared in the main DC Films continuity in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as both the theatrical edition and the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League. Affleck is also confirmed to make some sort of appearance in the upcoming The Flash movie — but it looks like fans want his onscreen story to be far from over. On Sunday, #MakeTheBatfleckMovie began trending once again on social media, with fans voicing a desire to see some version of Affleck's original The Batman solo movie — which he was initially poised to write, direct, and star in, before the project evolved elsewhere — brought to life.
Some have remarked about how Affleck deserves to have his ambitious Batman solo story brought to life, while others have just marveled at the idea of seeing "Batfleck" in a larger context. Here are just a few of those reactions.
