Ben Affleck ended his role as Batman, however, this did not stop certain DCEU fans from hoping to see the actor in a solo Batman movie one day. One dedicated fan took existing Batman footage and put it into a teaser trailer of what they might expect from an Affleck-run Batman movie. YouTuber Jon Arryn Garza uses footage that showcases a large amount of current DCEU villains, such as Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Joker (Jared Leto) while having various encounters with the Knight of Darkness.
This fan video trailer also uses Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart) and Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy) from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, before the fan's Batman: Arkham Asylum logo appears on the screen. Then, some type of post-credits scene shows us Liam Neeson's R'as Al Ghul for a second.
This video is very likely derived from cinematographer Robert Richardson's recent statements about the film, where he revealed that much of the film would take place inside the iconic DC Comics site, Arkham Asylum. Richardson was hired to work with Affleck on film, but they eventually parted ways with the project - he has since been replaced by Rogue One cinematographer and longtime Matt Reeves collaborator Craig Fraser.
Ben Affleck also confirmed in an interview that the film would definitely not lack an opponent, thus only further confirming the statement of cinematographer Richardson.
The Batman directed by Matt Reeves comes to theaters on June 25, 2021.
