New artwork shows The Batman star Robert Pattinson replacing Ezra Miller as The Flash in the DC Extended Universe.
Although fans are eager to see the latest take on the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, a new concept design imagines Robert Pattinson in a different DC role. A new Instagram challenge among digital artists offers the chance to see Pattinson in different roles by using the film’s first ominous teaser released by director Reeves. One artist thought the star could be a good fit for another well-known DC hero waiting to start production on his own movie.
In the artwork from ‘barrett.digital’ on Instagram, The Batman star Robert Pattinson replaces Ezra Miller as The Flash, wearing the costume fans last saw in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The design seems to show Pattinson’s Scarlet Speedster coming to a stop, since there’s plenty of lightning in the background. The star’s chin seems to fit the The Flash’s mask perfectly. Take a look at the impressive design below.

Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie was on track to begin production in April, but its start date was likely delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint storyline.
For those unaware, the Flashpoint comic book storyline 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.
