Potential spoilers follow for the Wonder Woman movie.
Batman looks to be the glue that binds the DCEU.
Following Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad, it’s now rumored that Ben Affleck will be appearing in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.
According to people who have seen Wonder Woman test screenings, Ben Affleck makes a cameo in Wonder Woman as Batman to tease Justice League, which is the next DCEU movie following Wonder Woman.
It’s said someone leaked the info from a Wonder Woman test screening which sees the movie start off in the present day with Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman e-mailing Ben Affleck’s Batman from Paris. The scene sets up the rest of the movie as Wonder Woman tells Batman the story of the first time she came across mankind in 1918, which is the year the rest of the movie takes place.
Further potential proof of the Batman cameo comes from a Wonder Woman set image revealing Gal Gadot next to a Wayne Enterprises truck set in Paris.
