The fastest man alive is taking fans on a nostalgic trip.
While The Flash has his his own show on "The CW" and has appeared on as a central character in two of the “Justice League” movies, he is finally getting his own standalone film.
Actor Ezra Miller gave fans the first glimpse at the upcoming adaptation directed by "IT's" Andy muschiett during Saturday's DC Fandome virtual fan event.
The forthcoming film is one that will find DC tumbling into its own multiverse, so audiences better gear up for some trippy revelations. Since the scarlet speedster's abilities allow him to zip through boundaries of time and space, the new film will see him colliding with both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton as Batman.
Keaton's appearance has fans buzzing since he hasn’t played the caped crusader since 1989’s “Batman” and 1992’s “Batman Returns.” Will there be unseen old footage, age-defying CGI, a retired Batman playing pinochle?
Affleck first appeared as the masked vigilante in 2016's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice."
The casting becomes even more mind-bending as Variety points out that Barry White's love interest, Iris West, will be be played by Kiersey Clemons, who first appeared in the 2017 "Justice League." Her role was eventually cut when director Zack Snyder left the film, but she does appear in his four-hour director's cut on HBO Max. At the time, Billy Crudup played Barry's father, Henry, in both versions, but in the upcoming film, he has been replaced by Ron Livingston.
Neither Livingston nor Clemons appear in the trailer, which focuses more-so on Barry Allen and his personal choices. Newcomer Sasha Calle will also appear as Supergirl.
And last but not least, the trailer gives the Flash suit an upgrade with a cool new lightning bolt.
While it prominently states “In Production” at the end of the clip, “The Flash,” written by Christina Hodson (“Birds of Prey”), is scheduled to open soon, on Nov. 4, 2022.
The virtual convention also introduced Dwayne Johnson as a DC superhero by giving fans a first look at his role as the titular character in the upcoming film “Black Adam.”
Additionally, Robert Pattinson's growling take on "Batman" was revealed with a brand new trailer. The film, also starring Zoe Kravitz, hits theaters on March 4.
