A new commercial of The Flash which includes some small unseen shots.

The promo summarizes the main characters that we will see in the film, namely two versions of Barry Allen ( Ezra Miller ), Michael Keaton ‘s Batman and Sasha Calle ‘s Supergirl , who will join forces to stop Zod ‘s invasion of Earth ( Michael Shannon ).

There is a lot of curiosity around the Girl of Steel, but it is not clear whether this version of the heroine will have a future in the new DC Universe : it is possible that Warner wants to wait for the reactions of the public before making a decision. James Gunn and Peter Safran themselves claim that they do not yet know if the protagonist of Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow – one of the films announced at the end of January – will be Sasha Calle .

Still, Gunn himself has described The Flash as “arguably one of the greatest superhero movies ever made,” so expectations are high. The release in Italian theaters is expected for June 14 , but the world debut will take place at the next CinemaCon .

You can see the spot 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 the project , before coming to Muschietti .

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.
