It is common knowledge that with the impending release of these films, superhero toys, and merchandise sales are sky-high.

At first sight, the image looks like The Flash might be fighting his evil twin, like Spiderman vs Venom or Hulk vs Abomination. But if connoisseurs and experts of DC comics are to be believed, this character will be very significant in the future development of storylines in the Flash and DC universes. While the reveal of Dark Flash by Funky Pop may be considered a spoiler, it possibly will not dampen the excitement of hardcore fans of the franchise.

Who is the Dark Flash? The possibilities are many

From the initial interpretations of the trailer, it looks to be Michael Shannon’s Zod who will torment Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen as the main villain. But with the first look at The Dark Flash images coupled with reports coming in, it appears that Zod may just be the secondary antagonist here. In the original comics, The Flash locked horns with Dark Flash also known as Black Flash whereas, in the CW television series The Flash, Hunter Zolomon turned into the Dark Flash.

There are also theories materializing among fandoms that Barry Allen who does not have his speedster powers at the beginning of the movie, will receive them only to subsequently turn into Dark Flash. According to sources, this could be due to the time manipulation that creates the alternate flashpoint timeline. With multiple interpretations being discussed in the leadup to the film, June 16th, 2023, is the date that all will be revealed.
