From now until June 15th , the day when The Flash will arrive in Italian cinemas.
we will see more and more commercials of the awaited cinecomic: not surprisingly, yet another promo is now available which includes various unpublished scenes.
Flash ( Ezra Miller ) goes back in time to save his mother Nora ( Maribel Verdú ), but realizes he has “destroyed History”. Indeed, Barry finds himself in a world without metahumans, where Batman ( Michael Keaton ) is different from what he knows, and in addition there is Supergirl ( Sasha Calle ) instead of Superman . Together, they will have to stop General Zod ‘s ( Michael Shannon ) invasion .
Enthusiastic comments arrived from CinemaCon in Las Vegas , and James Gunn – new head of DC Studios with Peter Safran – echoed them, calling the film “one of the best ever” in the superhero sphere. You can see the commercial below, but first I remind you of the character posters of the past few days.

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. However, it will not be a faithful transposition, as we already know.
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 ), Michael Shannon ( Zod ), 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.
