The highly-anticipated The Flash movie, starring Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, and Sasha Calle, has reportedly undergone some significant changes in its ending just before the premiere, ahead of James Gunn’s new DCU reboot.
Initially announced in 2014, The Flash has undergone numerous changes over the years, from being part of Zack Snyder’s DCEU plan to concluding the universe’s reset with James Gunn’s DCU. The Flash movie was intended to set up a new Justice League, with Michael Keaton replacing Ben Affleck’s Batman and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl filling in the Kryptonian role for Henry Cavill’s Superman. However, the movie has cut two superheroes from the ending, signaling a new direction for the DCU.
Changes In The Flash’s Ending
Geeks Worldwide’s KC Walsh shared new details about the movie’s changes, which seem to come from one of the latest test screenings. The insider revealed that the ending has been “changed” to be more “vague,” particularly noting how “the ‘cameo’ isn’t what you think it is either.” The cameo in question likely refers to rumors of George Clooney’s Batman appearing. Apparently, there will be several cameos in the movie, including both “a CW connection [and] a dream cameo” that will be “what everyone talks about.”
Controversial Changes In The Flash Ending
According to Walsh, references to Zack Snyder’s Justice League “appear to be removed.” YouTuber Grace Randolph previously shared that, under the instruction of DC Studios CEO James Gunn, The Flash removed all of the movie’s ending teases. The overhaul reportedly cut out Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Sasha Calle’s Supergirl, and Michael Keaton’s Batman – although the latter two remain confirmed to appear in the bulk of The Flash.
The Flash And James Gunn’s DCU
As James Gunn prepares to kickstart his new DCU, the only characters confirmed to be replaced are Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman. The fates of Ezra Miller’s Flash, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman remain undecided. A “vague” ending could make sense, especially if The Flash movie focuses on putting an end to this universe with a hint at a new one to take its place instead of directly showing what’s next.
Possible Cameos In The Flash
The “CW connection” in question could be Grant Gustin’s Flash, as the movie was previously rumored to include him. The suggestion of a “dream cameo” could refer to Christian Bale’s Batman, likely through old footage, as his portrayal continues to be among the most popular in DC history. The possibility of the “George Clooney cameo” being something else adds to the intrigue of the movie. One can only wait and see what The Flash has in store for fans.
