Interestingly, Affleck and Leto were never on set together to film the new scene between Batman and Joker. Producer Deborah Snyder recently told Insider that the team “actually shot Ben separately from Jared,” but while bringing them on set together was not an option due to the pandemic, it was important for Zack Snyder to make sure the Snyder Cut would have its scene from Batman and Joker.
“Zack always felt that the best thing for him was seeing Batman and Joker together in one scene,” Deborah said. “It was something that we thought about as we were working on the movie, but we couldn’t imagine how it would fit. So when we got a chance to do the movie again, he said he really wanted to do it.”
As he is now, Affleck is ready to reprise the role of Batman one last time for The flash film that is slated for a 2022 release. When it comes to the Joker, there are no plans in the works at this time for the Leto incarnation to return in another DC project at Warner Bros. However, given the success of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign , the new campaign for #RestoreTheSnyderVerse could bring the two actors for more scenes together.
