The visual effects of The Flash , the cinecomic starring Ezra Miller , have been at the center of long discussions since the diffusion.

the first video material and now that the film has arrived in theaters we continue to talk about a CGI that is not always up to par of the best superhero blockbusters.

During a recent interview, director Andy Muschietti spoke about this aspect of the film, commenting on a scene also present in the trailers in which we see the Scarlet Sprinter save some people. The appearance of those people, including newborns, has been defined by many spectators as strange but according to Muschietti, it is a precise stylistic choice:

The idea is that we’re looking at everything from Flash’s perspective. It’s all distorted in terms of light and texture. We dive into this world that basically represents Barry’s point of view. It’s just part of the design and although it may seem strange it is a deliberate thing.

In “The Flash” the worlds will collide when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time, and change the events of the past. When trying to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry is trapped in a reality where General Zod returns to threaten destruction, and with no Super Hero to turn to…unless Barry can convince a decidedly different Batman to return to the field to rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian…despite not being the one he’s looking for anymore. Ultimately, to save the world he’s in and return to the future he knows, Barry’s only hope is to run for his life. But will this ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?

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). Michael Shannon returns as Zod.


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.
