The VFX team working on Ezra Miller’s The Flash has some strange ideas that will extend the look of Barry Allen in the film.
During an interview with Beyond the Trailer, one of the VFX supervisors working on Ezra Miller’s The Flash opened up about what’s being planned for the Scarlet Speedster’s solo movie, teasing some super, super strange ideas being thrown around. John “D.J.” Des Jardin explained that the film will expand on what we saw from Barry Allen in Justice League while praising director Andy Muschietti for his creative ideas.
“There are a lot of things and. I don’t really wanna talk about them, because they’ll kinda give away maybe some of the technology and some of the fun stuff…. I would just say that [Director Andy Muschietti]’s got some really interesting concepts of ways to extend the look and the vibe of the Barry Allen Flash, the Ezra Miller Flash, the Zack Snyder Flash that we kind of gave you a taste of in Justice League and kind of goes on from there.”
Des Jardin was careful not to say too much for fear of ruining anything, but promised that it’ll be an intriguing movie because of how weird some of the visuals will be. Hopefully some of that weirdness comes from travelling between universes, since The Flash will visit the world of Michael Keaton’s Batman, as the film’s crew was recently spotted filming at the building used for Wayne Manor in the 1989 comic book adaption.
“And I really don’t wanna say anything because y’know, Bryan and his team have been doing a lot of conceptual R&D to get a lot of these concepts and things nailed down, really successfully, I might add… I think Bryan can back me up on this- some of the ideas are super, super strange and very intriguing because of that.”

Plot details for The Flash are currently unknown. Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck will return as their respective Batmen and guide Barry on this journey inspired by Geoff Johns’ Flashpoint. Kiersey Clemons will reprise her role as Iris West in the film, Maribel Verdú is set to play Nora Allen, and Sasha Calle will play Supergirl.
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 Flash is set to hit theaters on June 3, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding The Flash and the future of the DC Extended Universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content!
