A stunt crew shirt from Ezra Miller’s The Flash might reveal who the villain of the upcoming DC film is.
Ezra Miller’s The Flash is still a few months away, but we did get our first look at the solo film at DC FanDome last October. A small tidbit of footage was also released last month for DC’s 2022 preview. So far, we’ve only seen a little bit of Michael Keaton’s Batman, and we still have no idea who the film’s villain is.
However, new evidence reveals who that villain could be. This comes from a stunt team shirt for Ezra Miller’s The Flash that features the silhouettes of Batman, Supergirl, and what appears to be Black Flash based on the logo and apperance. Some speculate the second Barry we saw in the film’s first look will become a villain, and it might be Black Flash. You can check out the t-shirt below.
Black Flash was created back in 1998 by Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, and Ron Wagner for The Flash #141 and has gone on to appear in the Grant Gustin series and Legends of Tomorrow. Black Flash acts as Death in the DC Universe, returning speedsters to the Speed Force.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint comic storyline, which followed The Flash 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. It is currently unknown how much inspiration the upcoming Ezra Miller film will take from the comic.
The upcoming solo film will star Ezra Miller reprising their role as Barry Allen from Justice League joined alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Ron Livingston replacing Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Sasha Calle debuting as Supergirl, and the return of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as their versions of Batman.
The Flash will hit theaters on November 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the future of the DC Extended Universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
