Warner Bros. has treated fans to a fresh glimpse of “The Flash” movie, unveiling new footage from the DC Comics film just before the Super Bowl.
After initially making a cameo appearance in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Miller is back as the Scarlet Speedster, Barry Allen, for his own standalone movie “The Flash.” The new trailer reveals Barry Allen’s journey into the multiverse, where he encounters an alternate version of himself, as well as two Batmen portrayed by Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton. The trailer also features the return of Michael Shannon’s General Zod from “Man of Steel” and the introduction of Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Exciting times lie ahead for fans of the DC Comics film.
In addition to the previously mentioned cast members, “The Flash” also includes Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Antje Traue, and Maribel Verdú. It’s an impressive ensemble that adds depth and excitement to the movie.
The recently released trailer is the first significant promotional material for the movie, coming after a series of controversies involving Ezra Miller, who plays the role of The Flash.
“The Flash” has encountered significant challenges over the past year due to several legal issues involving Ezra Miller. In March 2022, Miller faced two arrests in Hawaii, first for disorderly conduct and harassment, and then for second-degree assault. They pled no contest to the assault charge, and the harassment charge was later dropped. In January, Miller accepted a plea deal in a Vermont case, pleading guilty to unlawful trespassing while having two other criminal counts dismissed. Additionally, there have been allegations of Miller choking a woman in an Icelandic bar and harassing another woman in her home in Berlin. These controversies have led to concerns and complications during the film’s production.
“The Flash” is seen as a crucial reboot that will influence the future of DC’s onscreen stories and set the stage for James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new direction for the DC Universe.
Andy Muschietti, renowned for directing 2017’s “It” and its sequel is the director of “The Flash.” The screenplay was written by Christina Hodson, and the movie is produced by Michael Disco and Barbara Muschietti.
“The Flash” is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 16 and you can watch the official trailer below.
