At the "Justice League" panel Saturday at San Diego's Comic-Con, Affleck confirmed he's staying. "I am the luckiest guy in the world," the actor told the crowd. "I'm so thrilled to do it."
Affleck's news was just one of the many tidbits dropped at the popular panel, which also included a long-awaited, four-minute-long trailer. Tthe titles of other upcoming DC movies were revealed, and the film showcasing The Flash was titled "Flashpoint." That may mean nothing to casual fans, but Flashpoint was a 2011 comics arc that gave many of DC's heroes alternate lives that differ quite a bit from their main storylines. (Bruce Wayne died in the famed attack on his parents, and his father became Batman, for one thing.)
Many fans expressed excitement about the jumbled Flashpoint universe making it to the big screen.
