Brand new footage from the costume department of The Flash showcases the creation of the Dark Flash suit worn by Ezra Miller in the film.
The Dark Flash served as an underwhelming deviation from Flashpoint for many fans. The character certainly didn’t hold the gravitas of the Reverse Flash or Black Flash, and the novelty of seeing two Ezra Millers wore thin by the end of The Flash. However, that doesn’t mean the amazing work done by the crew can’t be appreciated in a new behind-the-scenes video:
This video was posted by Charlotte Copeland, the costume effects modeller for The Flash. The Dark Flash costume in the film was created by the costume department in collaboration with prosthetic designer Kristyan Mallett. Pierre Bohanna served as the department’s head along with assistant Toby Hawkes, along with crew including Sam Williams, Nico Zarcone, Rach Roberts, and Jayne Gibson, among others.
The Flash’s DC Universe future
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.
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.
