Fans of The Flash have been waiting for more details about the character’s first cinematic solo outing starring Ezra Miller. New information about his role in the movie has now been revealed in a surprising place — the description of a toy.
McFarlane Toys has released a description of an upcoming figure of Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen for The Flash. The description gives fans a taste of what they can expect from the fan-favorite character in the DC Universe movie, which arrives in Summer 2023.
The description reads: “After an accident empowered Barry Allen with the gift of superhuman speed, the young scientist quickly became one of Earth’s most heroic defenders: The Flash. As part of The Justice League, Barry has continued to explore the limits of his powers while trying to outrun the events of his childhood. When he discovers that that he has the ability to manipulate time, The Fastest Man Alive races back to a pivotal moment in his past – only to change the future in a Multiverse of ways that he could have never imagined.”
A previous toy description hinted at the central conflict of the movie, which will revolve around a global threat that requires Bruce Wayne to once again don the cape and cowl of Batman and team up with Barry Allen. “With a global threat on the horizon, Bruce Wayne must decide whether he can become Batman once more,” it says.
Despite the potential spoilers, fans are sure to be thrilled with the new information about The Flash. The Ezra Miller starrer promises to be a game-changer for the DC Universe, bringing together multiple versions of beloved characters in a multiversal adventure.
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.
The Flash hits theaters on June 16, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the DC Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
