The Flash New Season Release Date, Plot, Cast, Trailer and more

For a movie about a lightning-fast superhero, the way to go for the flash was frustratingly slow. First given the green light in 2004 but only slated for a big-screen release in 2023, the DC Extended Universe’s (DCEU) first solo outing of the World’s Fastest Man hopes to add another win to the past. rival Marvel’s unequal at the box office.

Based on the long-running titular comic book character, it’s the most popular variant of The Flash, Barry Allen, who directs this film. As with anything superheroic these days, there’s a bit of background noise to filter out, so forget the CWs. the flash its the Flash of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League it matters here – however, The Flash being The Flash, Barry made a cameo in an Arrowverse TV Universe “Crisis On Infinite Earths” episode.

Promising the start of a DC multiverse, lots of Ezra Miller wit and not one, but of them, Batman, could the flash be the box office hit to rival DC Aquaman?

Here’s everything we know about it so far…

The Flash release date

Friday, June 23, 2023, is the current theatrical release date for The flash. We’re keeping our fingers crossed this is the real deal as the film has gone through several deadlines in the past. Creative differences (no less than eight directors have been attached to it over the years), and then the pandemic set it back – it was originally slated for screens on March 18, 2018, and had multiple release dates in 2022 – but next summer finally seems like a lock.

The Flash New Season

In the United States, small screens will see the film just 45 days after its theatrical window through HBO Max. UK fans will have to wait for confirmation from a streaming platform; based on other DC movies, Sky Cinema and NOW seem the likely option.

What’s the plot?

Two years ago, director Andy Muschetti revealed that the film would feature elements from the Flashpoint comic book series (which revived the DC Comics universe in 2011). It’s also planned to introduce viewers to the DC Multiverse and recognize historical cinematic timelines.

For those unaware, the Flashpoint storyline features an alternate reality where Cyborg (not Superman) is the world’s go-to hero and Thomas Wayne is Batman. Barry Allen is apparently the only one who is aware of the differences between this alternate reality and his timeline.

This is slightly murky territory, as Flashpoint is something that’s already been explored in The CW’s third season. the flash series had its own animated film adaptation and is not suitable for full integration into the DCEU as far as we know – it would require members of the Justice League to play significant roles, something we would already have heard about if it was true (Batman being the exception).

A teaser released in late 2021 provides additional insight. Shots of The Flash outside his family home and approaching what appears to be his mother in the kitchen suggest he will, at least initially, follow the Flashpoint narrative of Barry preventing his mother’s murder in the past. The resulting time shift (or possible parallel dimension error) results in multiple Barry Allens, Bat people, and who knows what else.

Batman is also key to the events of this film. Muschietti has confirmed that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be “a very big part of the film’s emotional impact” and the teaser is littered with business cards from the caped crusader. From a ramshackle Wayne Manor and waterfall-backed Batcave to a bloody cowl and distinctive hooded silhouette, it’s everywhere.

We know that Michael Keaton Ben Affleck and Bruce Waynes will appear in the film, but their roles are yet to be defined. The dilapidated stack in the teaser is likely the 1989 Wayne Manor Batman because Ben Affleck’s iteration was still a billionaire at the end of Justice League. Keaton also provides a revealing voiceover, talking about traveling to “any timeline, any universe”, while in The Flash finale “You in?” The line suggests that the Dark Knight will be in allegiance with the multiple Flashes.

We also know the movie will feature Supergirl from the DCEU, lining her up for her own solo movie in 2024.

Given that Ezra Miller’s Flash has only had cinematic cameos so far, it’s likely there will be a reference to his origin story here as well. A photo of an industrial-looking room that could be STAR Labs (the place where he got his superpowers) supports this theory.

As always, there are still many unknowns. With the possibilities of time travel/parallel dimension, it’s hard at this point to discern the meaning behind many of the other teaser shots. The touching hands, the Flash ringtone, the possible presence of an alternate Flash (Jay Garrick) – and was that the 1989 Batmobile under the tarp? We’ll need more pictures to find out.

The Flash Cast

The indie sweetheart turned fan of the Ezra Miller franchise (the Perks of being a wallflower, the fantastic beast’s franchise) will reprise his role as the titular hero after meeting the public in 2016 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Ben Affleck dons the Dark Knight cowl again as Justice League‘s Batman, starring alongside former Batman, 1989’s Batman, Michael Keaton.

Relative newcomer Sasha Calle (The young and the restless) is confirmed as Supergirl, while the villains appear to be imported from 2013 Steelman: Michael Shannon returns as General Zod with Antje Traue again playing his accomplice Faora, though these may well be cameos.

Maribel Verdú plays Nora Allen, Barry’s murdered mother while her father Harry is played by Ron Livingston, replacing Billy Crudup from Justice League. Barry’s love interest Iris West will be played by Kiersey Clemons, as previously seen in Zack Synder’s Justice League.

Is there a trailer?

A preview was released at the DC FanDome on October 16, 2021. It’s a tantalizing little teaser, but it does a great job of building the hype for one of the most anticipated DC movies to date. Dark, brooding, and missing the trademark zingers Glow fans love, it’s all still shots and suggestive silhouettes, but painted with a brush that looks a lot like Batman. Check it out below:

Who makes the Flash?

Argentinian director Andy Muschietti brings his directing skills to the table, a departure from his historically horror-focused work on This and It: Chapter 2. Bumblebee, Birds of prey, and soon available bat girl screenwriter Christina Hudson took the lead on the screenplay, while Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and The Legend of Tarzan cinematographer Henry Braham is behind the cameras.
