Michael Keaton is Batman (again!) in first The Flash trailer
Ezra Miller's Barry Allen is a man with a plan to change history
Barry Allen’s infamous lateness might be behind the fact that audiences have been waiting a long time for this, but the official teaser at Warner Bros’ big screen The Flash has finally arrived, offering the first official look at the movie that just might change the DC cinematic universe forever.
Take a look:
Debuting during this year’s Super Bowl, the trailer shows Ezra Miller speeding onto the big screen this summer alongside a cast list that also includes the return of Michael Keaton as Batman for the first time in three decades, as well as Michael Shannon reprising his role as General Zod from 2013’s Man of Steel — oh, and a new onscreen Supergirl in the form of Sasha Calle, to boot. The long-awaited movie is written by Birds of Prey’s Christina Hodson, and directed by It and It Chapter Two’s Andy Mischietti.
Shot far in advance of the recent announcement of a reboot of the onscreen DCU — the movie started filming way back in April 2021, wrapping six months later, with reshoots taking place last year — the reality-altering adventure, loosely based on the 2011 comic book miniseries Flashpoint, is nonetheless something that the new DC Studios heads are very excited about, with James Gunn recently calling it “probably one of the greatest superhero movies ever made,” as well as a movie that “resets everything.”
Does this mean that The Flash is a stealth introduction to the new era of the DCU? That much will remain under wraps until the movie hits theaters June 16. You can buy tickets on Fandango or Atom Tickets.
(If you need a reminder of what superhero movies are coming out and when, we’ve got you covered.)
Until then, enjoy the new trailer and the inevitable speculation of just what is going on in this trailer, and what (if anything) it all means for the world that’s coming.
The Flash is scheduled to open in theaters June 16, 2023.
Wondering what else is happening at DC this year? Wonder no more, we’re here to tell you everything.
