THE FLASH gets a new trailer – Ezra Miller sees more of Michael Keaton’s Batman & Sasha Calle’s Supergirl

We’re getting treated to a new look at the highly-anticipated Warner Bros. production THE FLASH movie, which brings back Ezra Miller, who played Barry Allen / The Flash in the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie. James Gunn, new co-head of DC Films, recently said the movie is fantastic, and will effectively reboot the DC cinematic universe. The film looks to be heavily influenced by the “Flashpoint” story in the comics, which opened up possibilities for multiverse characters, like an alternate universe Batman, etc. – but it also deals directly with Barry’s somewhat tragic background in which his mother was murdered, and his father blamed for it. Ron Livingston appears as Barry’s dad in this one, Maribel Verdu plays his mom, Kiersey Clemons plays the object of his affection Iris West, Sasha Calle appears as an alternate universe take on Supergirl, and Temuera Morrison is said to appear playing Aquaman’s father Tom Curry… but the BIG selling point here is two Batmans, Ben Affleck playing Batman from the Zack Snyder films, and the one and only Michael Keaton playing an older version of his Tim Burton-era Batman. We also see the return of Michael Shannon as General Zod, who first played the role in MAN OF STEEL a decade ago. And based on the trailers so far, we’re getting at least two versions of Ezra Miller’s Flash, so that’s also interesting. THE FLASH went through several director changes and script alterations, but the final version is directed by Andy Muschietti (Stephen King’s IT chapter one and two) and features a screenplay by Christina Hodson (BIRDS OF PREY). Check out the new trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?

THE FLASH zooms into theaters on June 16, 2022
