DC fans all over the world are eagerly anticipating the release of Justice League and the introduction of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. He’s the fastest man alive, but don’t expect to hear other characters calling him the Flash just yet.
Similar to how nobody officially referred to Diana Prince by her more well known name in this year’s Wonder Woman, Barry will not be getting his superhero name in Justice League.
Ezra Miller has alluded to a deleted scene in which the Flash moniker was born, but reveals that the finished film contains no such moment:
“Barry is just Barry at this point and there’s even a scene that was cut from the movie where he is going on and on and on trying to figure out who he should be, and what he should call himself, so yeah he doesn’t have a superhero name yet.”
Are you surprised or disappointed that Barry will just be called Barry in Justice League? Let us know what your thoughts are down in the comments section.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
Top 7 DC Animated Movies That Should Be Made Next
The DC Animated movies have always been such a treat to watch. Sure, some of them are corny, but the animation is consistently top notch. Bruce Timm set the entire DC animated block in motion back in the day, but now the department has expanded far beyond anyone’s initial expectations. There are so many amazing stories out there in the DC Universe that deserve the animated treatment. Not only are there a plethora of amazing characters fans haven’t seen animated yet, the opportunity to make a movie introduces minor fans to heroes they would have never seen otherwise.
While this is a wishlist of sorts, I’m also framing it as a realistic list for the Warner Bros. animation team. I know they only make movies they think will make them money, so I tried my best to pick stories that actually have the potential to financially succeed as an animated feature. That doesn’t mean every movie has Batman in it, but these were picked as opportunities that would please fans and producers alike. Trust me though, there are some amazing stories on this list that deserve the animation treatment right away!
