Warner Bros. Pictures presents The Flash, directed by Andy Muschietti (the IT film, Mama). Ezra Miller reprises their role as Barry Allen in the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film.
Worlds collide in The Flash when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?
The Flash is set up to be a must-see for comic book fans everywhere and reportedly fared well in test screenings. Not only does it feature multiple versions of iconic heroes, but the superhero film will also feature a new take on Supergirl. It looks like Krypton’s Kara Zor-El, played by Sasha Calle, will have her hands full after the Flash accidentally brings back Michael Shannon’s murderous version of General Zod. The Flash will offer a look back at a DC cinematic universe that will largely be put to bed soon and enable the reset that is to come.
The Flash ensemble also includes rising star Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon (Bullet Train, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Ron Livingston (Loudermilk, The Conjuring), Maribel Verdú (Elite, Y tu mamá también), Kiersey Clemons (Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Sweetheart), Antje Traue (King of Ravens, Man of Steel) and Michael Keaton (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Batman).
The Flash speeds into theaters on June 16, 2023.
