After the Korean trailer full of unedited scenes , a new clip of The Flash leaks online showing Bruce Wayne ( Michael Keaton ) with an unedited look.
Long hair and beard, Bruce clearly lives as a recluse in Wayne Manor, and hasn’t been Batman for a long time: “They don’t need me,” Barry ( Ezra Miller ) tells the two. “Things have changed…now Gotham is one of the safest cities in the world.” The Scarlet Sprinter explains that in his reality is Superman , and he is able to stop Zod , but Bruce comments that the name Superman sounds a little too obvious. “You call yourself Batman,” Barry points out . “Yes, but I don’t call myself Super Batman.”
The Dark Knight refuses to help them, but we know he will change his mind. I remind you that the Italian release is expected on June 15th . Meanwhile, you can watch the clip 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. However, it will not be a faithful transposition, as we already know.

The screenplay is by Christina Hodson ( Bumblebee , Birds of Prey ), while the direction is handled by Andrés Muschietti ( La Madre, IT ).
