The second edition of the most coveted DC FanDome event was a thundering success as fans had a sneak-peek into major upcoming releases like Black Adam, The Batman, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and The Flash. Since The Flash is still in production, the sneak-peek was short as a lot of parts are yet to be finished for the final cut. But nonetheless, the short yet exciting teaser has garnered a lot of reaction from fans with the mysterious appearance of Michael Keaton’s iconic cowl at the end.
With Ezra Miller reprising the role as the Scarlet Speedster from Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the movie has been in production limbo for a while as the studio had to re-shuffle a few directors due to creative differences. However, the movie found its director in Andy Muschietti (Mama, IT, IT: Chapter Two) who had previously revealed that the movie will blast open the multiverse in the first edition of the DC FanDome event. Earlier this year, it was also revealed that Kiersey Clemons will be reprising her role as Iris West from Justice League with Sasha Calle playing the role of Supergirl. Both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will be donning their suits once again for the movie.
Interestingly, the teaser knowingly kept Keaton’s Batman under the wraps while only revealing his iconic cowl, the dusty Wayne Manor, and his legendary Batmobile that was kept under a wrap, quite literally. However, the voice-over by Keaton’s Batman in the teaser hints towards a fracture in the space-time continuum caused by Barry Allen that has left the multiverse wide open allowing Sasha Calle’s Supergirl and Michael Keaton’s Batman meeting with the speedster for a possible team-up. While the team-up surely sounds great for a multiversal threat that is probably looming over, the detective mind of the Dark Knight surely proceeds with caution as he tries to understand the events that have transpired.
Similarly, the teaser did not show any scene involving Affleck’s Batman and whether the two different Dark Knights will meet each other at some point in the movie is yet to be answered. Though the movie is titled The Flash, and it’s only natural to have Barry Allen as the central character, Keaton’s Caped Crusader will possibly serve as a guide to the youngster who has just entered the crimefighting scene.
The Flash is slated to release on November 4, 2022.
