Remember last year when we were all excited about Suicide Squad, and the big Flash cameo? While it was rumored that the speedster would make some kind of appearance in the film, the details of the cameo were kept under wraps. Even Jay Courtney wasn’t sure about it, and he was in the scene.
‘I didn’t know he was in the movie until I saw the movie! True! It’s funny, because I look back on it and think, ‘ya f***in’ moron, of course that’s what was happening!’ But even shooting that [scene], it didn’t occur to me. It wasn’t so prescriptive in the script. That was a little gem they were keeping, and rightly so, I understand why they’d want to protect that.’
But you can’t really blame Courtney for not knowing, as the whole thing was filmed long after principal photography wrapped. The short sequence was directed by Zack Snyder while shooting Justice League in London and sent to Suicide Squad director David Ayer while he was working on post-production of his movie.
The scene was filmed entirely with green screen, and now thanks Instagram account art_of_chele, we have a better look at the setup and the amazing looking Flash armor.

Here's a wider shot of that green screen cameo. I don't like to be redundant with these posts, but I'm curious to see how fast this one spreads across the net. #flash#theflash#flashprototypesuit#justiceleague#justiceleague2017#justiceleaguemovie#dccomics#dccinematicuniverse#suicidesquad#greenscreen#vfx#filmmaking#behindthescenes#zacksnyder#ezramiller#postproduction#cinefex#moviemaking#flashcameo#flashsuit
While I’m not a fan of the shoulders, the rest of the suit looks great, and Ezra Miller has proved to be the right choice for The Flash in the footage we’ve seen so far. Hopefully Justice League will be as good as its potential shows.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J.K.
