Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie.
As promised, Warner Bros. has released an official trailer for The Flash, giving fans a taste of what to expect from the comic book movie. DC Studios co-head James Gunn recently described The Flash as “one of the greatest superhero movies ever made,” and the new sneak peek teases that the character’s first cinematic solo outing could live up to the hype. Check out the trailer below.
The official synopsis for the film also dropped!
Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in
order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently
alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned,
threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax
a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the
one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he
knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough
to reset the universe?
The Flash is a highly-anticipated superhero movie based on the DC Comics character of the same name, starring Ezra Miller as the titular character. The movie marks Miller’s fifth outing as The Flash on the big screen, following the actor’s appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Justice League and the Peacemaker series on HBO Max.
Warner Bros. recently moved up the release of The Flash to June 16, 2023. The movie is now hitting theaters one week after Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and two weeks before Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. It’s one of the final DC Comics movies arriving before James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe plans become a reality.
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.
Who else is attached to the Flash movie?
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.
