Ezra Miller’s The Flash made a splash at the Super Bowl.
The first official look at The Flash was the biggest Super Bowl ad of Sunday night, as reported by WaveMetrix. According to the platform, which offers data analysis and insight for the entertainment industry, The Flash dominated “social volume” and “intent to view” charts following its debut at the Super Bowl game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Outcomes-based measurement firm EDO adds that the Flash sneak peek was the biggest Super Bowl ad in five years and the number one spot of the night in ad rankings, based on search engagement. Meanwhile, ListenFirst reports that movies like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Fast X were no match for The Flash, which was trending for terms like “Michael Keaton” and “Supergirl.”
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.
