“I mean, yeah, I think it’s always a possibility,” he said. “Of course they’re bringing in Michael Keaton, which I’m excited about. And a few other people from previous DC projects. I think that’s very exciting.

While we still have some time to go before The Flash hits theaters, read on for everything you need to know about this long-awaited chapter in the DC Extended Universe.
the flash release date
Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of waiting time. The Flash is scheduled to hit theaters next year on June 23, 2023.
After months of delays and pre-production, the flash finally began filming on April 26, 2021.
Fans have already had to wait a long time to see an independent film, and Miller already signed on in 2014, so by the time we see the film, it will be nearly a decade since the star agreed to play the character. speaking of patience!
Of course, in that time the character has appeared in other DC movies, but surely it can only be good news that he’s finally getting his own movie.
the lightning deal
As stated, Ezra Miller will take on the lead role of Barry Allen/The Flash. billy crudup has had to withdraw from the role of henry, barry’s father, due to scheduling conflicts and has been replaced by sleight-of-hand ron livingston, who will be joined by pan’s labyrinth actress maribel verdú as nora Barry’s mother.
kiersey clemons has been confirmed to return as barry’s love interest iris west. Clemons shot scenes for Justice League that were eventually cut from the theatrical cut, but were reinstated in the infamous Snyder Cut that has now been released.
Now there is a little more clarity around who is behind the camera. Andy Muschietti, who directed both parts of the recent big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It, will direct from a script by Christina Hodson (Bumblebee), after a host of other names have previously been added to the project. /p>
And in August 2020 some very surprising news broke about other stars set to appear in the film, with former Batman ben affleck and michael keaton set to reprise their roles as the caped crusader.
muschietti described the role of affleck as “a very important part of the emotional impact of the film” while speaking with vanity fair and added: “the interaction and the relationship between barry and wayne de affleck will bring an emotional level that we have not seen before.
Affleck spoke to the variety about the film, saying, “It was a really nice way to revisit that, as the previous experience had been difficult.”
Meanwhile, Keaton will recreate his Batman from Tim Burton’s 1989 film and its 1992 sequel, with Muschietti describing him as a “substantial” part and one of the alternate dimensional heroes to appear as we’ve seen. prior to. Speaking of reprising the role, Keaton told Collider:
“[it was] weirdly and ironically easy. kind of emotional. just a rush of memories. giving nothing away, which I can’t, basically the first take, not the whole movie, but let’s just say the intro. [of batman ], it’s so good that when we walked by and started talking about a couple of shots and the angles I was like ‘wow this is great this is great’ I’m not even talking about myself just the pictures they’re great and remember, To some extent, Tim Burton.”
it seems that flash will be full of superheroes; In addition to the two Batmans, reckless young star Sasha Calle will make her debut as DCEU’s supergirl.
also, new flash images have brought about the return of michael shannon.
The actor was last seen as Zod in 2013’s Man of Steel, but a trailer shown at CinemaCon 2022 teased his return in the DC Multiverse movie.
However, there is no word on when the full trailer will be released to the public, so fans will have to wait for more information on Shannon’s return.

The multiverse angle has sparked rumors that several more alternate versions of DC’s superheroes could appear, however, from a Wonder Woman from a different dimension to Brandon Routh’s Superman. Even Smallville’s Tom Welling has admitted that he is willing to appear after he reprized his role as Clark Kent in the recent Crisis on Infinite Earths event.
However, one person who won’t appear is Ray Fisher’s cyborg. he was originally slated to appear in the film, but has since been cut, stating that “despite the misconception, the cyborg involvement was much bigger than a cameo.”
what is the flash movie about?
According to previous announcements, the film will follow the events of the Flashpoint comic, which sees the creation of an alternate timeline due to the Flash attempting to travel back in time to save his mother.
miller has gone on record that “our precious dc universe will inevitably be ripped apart into an endless fabric of headache-inducing multiversality”, which certainly sounds, erm, intriguing.
And now we know a bit more about the multiverse that will reportedly be explored in the film, with director andy muschietti stating that the film is “a bit of a hinge in that it presents a story that involves a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations we’ve seen before are valid.
“it’s inclusive in the sense that it says everything you’ve ever seen exists, and everything you’ll ever see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”
Muschietti further added that the film will explore the relationship between Flash and Batman, telling Vanity Fair, “It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but their characters are more closely related than we think.”
“both lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional vessels of the film. that’s where the affleck batman comes in. glad to collaborate with someone who’s been on both sides of the camera, too .he understands.”
Filming wise, the movie was shot in various locations, but the most interesting thing for us is that the Gotham City scenes were shot in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Unfortunately, no further plot details have been made official yet, so no one knows yet, but it’s probably safe to expect a lot of running!
is there a flash trailer?
Sadly, we’re still waiting for an official trailer, but we got a sneak peek at the latest dc fandome event. it’s really playing on our emotions when it comes to seeing michael keaton in the bat suit again.
