Director Andy Muschietti has shared a sneak peek at the final stages of production for the upcoming DC Universe movie The Flash. The filmmaker took to his official Instagram account to post a behind-the-scenes photo from the movie’s last sound mixing session, hyping up its Summer 2023 release.
In the photo, Andy Muschietti offers fans a new look at The Flash composer Benjamin Wallfisch and the rest of the movie’s sound department, all smiles as they pose for the camera. It’s clear that the team is putting the finishing touches on the highly-anticipated superhero movie, which stars Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton and Sasha Calle.
The Flash is the first cinematic solo outing for the DC Comics hero of the same name, featuring Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. The movie marks Miller’s fifth turn as The Flash, following the actor’s appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Justice League and the Peacemaker series on HBO Max.
Warner Bros. recently moved up the release of The Flash to June 16, 2023. The movie is now hitting theaters one week after Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and two weeks before Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. It’s one of the final DC Comics movies arriving before James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe plans become a reality.
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.
Who else is attached to the Flash movie?
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.
