A brand new set photo from The Flash shows off young Barry Allen in his childhood room.
Principal photography on the upcoming DC Extended Universe film The Flash is still underway, and fans have had glimpses at some of the film’s cast, whether it’d be Ezra Miller as the titular Scarlet Speedster, Sasha Calle as Supergirl or Michael Keaton in his triumphant return as Batman. Now, we have a new look at young Barry Allen, portrayed by Ian Loh.
In a post that has since been deleted from his official Instagram, Ian Loh shared a photo celebrating director Andy Muschietti’s birthday. The photo was taken from the set of the film, specifically in young Barry Allen’s bedroom. You can check out the photo down below:
Based on how his bedroom looks, young Barry Allen was a child of the early 2000’s, based on the posters we see for Cats & Dogs, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and Looney Tunes: Back in Action. In particular, the fact that there’s a poster for Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed confirms that the existence of The Suicide Squad writer/director James Gunn is in fact canon in the DC Extended Universe. If we somehow see a teenage Barry Allen’s bedroom, fingers crossed there would be a poster for 300 on the wall, implying Zack Snyder’s existence as well.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash stars Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton, Sasha Calle, Kiersey Clemons, Maribel Verdu, and Ron Livingston.
The film 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 November 4, 2022. Stat tuned for all the latest news surrounding the Ezra Miller film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
