A promotional image of the Flash that portrays Barry Allen (aka Ezra Miller ) in his new costume has been leaked on the net.
Compared to the armored uniform from Justice League , this one is more faithful to the tights from the comics, albeit with some differences.
The studio has a lot of expectations in this film, especially after the success of the test screenings. Furthermore, some rumors claim that Miller could be confirmed for the future as well, despite numerous allegations and legal problems . According to Variety , the actor “has stayed out of trouble since the beginning of his mental health treatment,” and some Warner executives would be inclined to stick with him.
However, we must consider that the future of the DC Universe is still nebulous: since James Gunn and Peter Safran took over the reins of DC Studios , in fact, the plans for this narrative universe have changed, and we still don’t know how they will evolve. The first projects will be announced in the current month, so we’ll see. The latest rumors, however, claim that there will not be a total reboot of the cinematic universe.
The trailer for the film will be unveiled at the Feb. 12 Super Bowl , marking Warner ‘s return to America ‘s biggest sporting event after a 17-year absence. The theatrical release overseas is expected on June 16, 2023 . Meanwhile, you can see the image below.

The film is inspired by Flashpoint . In the comics, Barry Allen goes back in time to prevent the murder of his mother Nora , and distorts the timeline of the DC universe , finding himself in a very different present: in this timeline , he never became the Flash and Earth lives a deep crisis situation, also because many superheroes are no longer superheroes; Wonder Woman and the Amazons, for example, have conquered the United Kingdom, while Aquaman has devastated Western Europe with a tidal wave to annex it to his rule. Batman exists, but behind his mask is Thomas Wayne, not his son Bruce , who was killed during the infamous robbery. Let’s not expect, however, a faithful transposition.
Director and cast
The screenplay is by Christina Hodson ( Bumblebee , Birds of Prey ), while the direction is handled by Andrés Muschietti ( La Madre, IT ). The cast includes Ezra Miller ( Barry Allen / Flash ), Kiersey Clemons ( Iris West , historic romantic interest of Barry ), Maribel Verdú ( Nora Allen , mother of Barry ), Michael Keaton ( Tim Burton ‘s Batman ), Ben Affleck (the Batman byZack Snyder ), Sasha Calle ( Supergirl ), Ron Livingston ( Henry Allen ), Saoirse-Monica Jackson , Rudy Mancuso and Ian Loh ( Barry child).
A troubled project
Seth Grahame-Smith , Rick Famuyiwa and the duo of Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley took turns directing , before Muschietti arrived .
Flash to the cinema
Meanwhile, Ezra Miller played the Scarlet Sprinter in Justice League . However, Barry Allen ‘s film debut took place in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , where he appeared in a double cameo.
