While the attention of the marketing campaign is focused on Batman ( Michael Keaton ) and Supergirl ( Sasha Calle ).


the new commercials and photos of The Flash remind us of the existence of other supporting characters, more related to the mythology of the Scarlet Sprinter.

The first spot, done as a TikTok video, shows Barry ( Ezra Miller ) inviting Iris West ( Kiersey Clemons ) over to his house, and using super speed to tidy up… to little avail. In the shots we also see Saoirse-Monica Jackson in the role of Patty Spivot , and Rudy Mancuso in that of Albert Desmond . In the comics, Desmond is the supervillain Doctor Alchemy . There is also an extended commercial that includes spectacular new scenes.

As we know, Barry will go back in time to save his mother Nora ( Maribel Verdú ), but his intervention will cause enormous changes on the timeline : the hero will in fact find Supergirl ( Sasha Calle ) instead of Superman , as well as a different Batman and older ( Michael Keaton ). Together, the Flash and his new allies must stop General Zod ‘s ( Michael Shannon ) plans .

Enthusiastic comments arrived from CinemaCon in Las Vegas , while James Gunn – new head of DC Studios together with Peter Safran – spoke of “one of the best superhero films ever”. Meanwhile, you can see the commercials and photos 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.

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 ( Patty Spivot ), Rudy Mancuso ( Albert Desmond ) and Ian Loh ( Barry baby).

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.
