The stunning new concept art revealed by an artist on Justice League shows off a new costume resembling the Flashpoint Batman suit.
Although fans are still desperate to see a Flashpoint Batman suit in live action, new concept art from a Justice League artist gives Bruce Wayne a similar looking costume for a cancelled video game project. Although The Flash is adapting portions of the Flashpoint storyline, with both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck both reprising their Batman roles, it seems Thomas Wayne won’t get his own Batsuit in an alternate timeline. Jeffrey Dean Morgan even joked that Keaton had stolen his role. Fans will obviously remember that Morgan briefly played Thomas Wayne at the beginning of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Justice League artist ‘jsmarantz’ posted the Flashpoint Batman-style suit on Instagram, which highlights the bright red lenses in the cowl as well as showing off the bulky armor the Caped Crusader is wearing. The costume seems to be ex0-suit over the top of his usual costume, which implies that Bats would’ve gone up against a threat much stronger than him, like Superman. In the caption, the Justice League artist explained the design was for a now-cancelled video game project, but didn’t reveal the title of the game or what the plan was for this Flashpoint Batman inspired costume.

Here’s a Batman design I did for a canceled game project. It’s always an incredible challenge to do a bat suit and make it work for a new story. Batman is my absolute favorite comic book character and I’ll never get tired of working on him. #batman #brucewayne #thedarkknight #Thecapedcrusader #conceptart #hardsurface #zbrush #dcu #batsy

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 3rd, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on The Flash and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content.
