Warner Bros. has unveiled a captivating new poster for The Flash. The poster showcases an incredible lineup of DC Comics characters, including Ben Affleck’s Batman and Michael Shannon’s Zod, hinting at an exhilarating clash of worlds. Alongside them, the poster features Ezra Miller as The Flash, Michael Keaton as Batman, and Sasha Calle as Supergirl, underscoring the film’s multiversal premise.

The Flash promises to explore the fascinating concept of the multiverse, where different versions of beloved DC Comics characters co-exist. The latest poster for the DCU movie effectively captures the essence of the overarching theme. The inclusion of Ben Affleck’s Batman and Michael Shannon’s Zod alongside Michael Keaton’s Dark Knight and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl signifies the convergence of familiar faces from different iterations of the DCU.

In The Flash, Barry Allen travels back in time to save his mother, which creates an alternate timeline known as the Flashpoint Paradox. This decision has serious consequences for Barry and the rest of the world, as he must navigate this new reality while also facing off against villains like General Zod from Man of Steel.

The Flash’s DC Universe future

Warner Bros. Discovery already has a script for a potential sequel to The Flash, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the man behind the two Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran did not discuss the Flash sequel during their DC Universe presentation.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
