6 DC Heroes Batfleck Has Never Actually Met In DCEU

Ben Affleck’s Batman helped jumpstart the Justice League in the DCEU. Despite his overarching popularity, Batfleck has never met these heroes in the movies.

Shazam

Shazam

David F Sandberg’s 2019 movie – Shazam was a totally different take on DCEU movies. It was funnier, light, and was exceedingly less darker. The movie was a Box Office success. We all fell in love with Zachary Levi, who played the titular hero. Ben Affleck’s Batman is yet to meet Shazam in the DCEU. And it looks like that will remain a pipedream since he is almost out of that universe. Shazam did manage to meet Superman in a sense in the post credits sequence. But Levi has never met Affleck’s DCEU counterpart.

Vulko was a father figure to Arthur Curry, one of the founding members of the Justice League. he helped Arthur embrace his Atlantean heritage and save the world from the wrath of the Ocean Master. Batman did meet Aquaman in Justice League but he has never once come face to face with his mentor. Willem Dafoe has had a very small role to play outside the Aquaman sub-franchise of the DC Extended Universe. Now that Affleck is out, that encounter will never happen.

Katana

Katana

Tatsu Yamashiro is one of the fiercest warriors in the entire DCEU. her mystic Katana – the Soultaker, can trap the soul of the person whose life it takes. The 2016 movie Suicide Squad did not do the character enough justice. Katana and Batman have a very complicated and longstanding relationship dynamics in the comics. That is something the DCEU has failed to show. The character itself has remained on the sidelines after the events of Suicide Squad.

Black Canary

Jurnee Smollett

Jurnee Smollett brought the character to life in 2020’s Birds Of Prey movie. Dinah Laurel Lance is an expert fighter and has a superhuman ability. Her screams can shatter bones and break through concrete if she focuses hard enough. Black Canary made quite an impression in Birds Of Prey and there are talks of a solo project based on the character. But the character did have no encounter with Gotham’s Dark Knight despite knowing Harley Quinn, one of Batman’s enemies.

The Huntress

The Huntress

The Huntress, like Katana and Black Canary, has been a major part of the Batman mythos in DC Comics. She has also been an official part of the Bat Family on numerous occasions. Helena Bertinelli is yet to meet Batman in the DCEU though. Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s character will probably never share the frame with Ben Affleck again since the latter is opting out of the DCEU.

Atom

Ryan Choi

The 2017 Josstice League movie edited the scene out that showed Zheng kai’s Ryan Choi. Zack Snyder’s Justice League restored that entire scene. Choi worked closely with Doctor Silas Stone at S.T.A.R Labs. In the comics, Choi takes up the mantle of the Atom from ray Palmer. there were plans by Snyder to have a Ryan Choi – Atom spinoff project featuring the actor. But after Warner Brothers sacked Snyder, that dream never materialized into reality. Sadly, Zheng kai’s Choi never got to meet Batman as well. Such a crying shame since Batman worked with him closely in the comics.
