Discover The Latest Update On The Flash Movie, As It Confirms The Return Of A Significant Justice League Character.
The highly anticipated trailer for Ezra Miller’s upcoming film, The Flash, has unveiled the return of yet another familiar face from Warner Bros.’ Justice League. While Barry Allen, portrayed by Ezra Miller, is set to embark on a new timeline and bring together iconic characters like Michael Keaton’s Batman and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl, he will not be completely separated from his previous DCEU cast members.
One notable character making a comeback is Ben Affleck’s Batman, who will reprise his role in The Flash. Excitingly, he will also don a new suit, adding to the anticipation surrounding his appearance. Additionally, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman has been confirmed to make an appearance, a revelation that was inadvertently spoiled by a new Funko Pop merchandise related to the film.
The recent trailer for The Flash has revealed the return of yet another beloved character from Justice League: Jeremy Irons’ Alfred. In the footage, Alfred can be seen conversing with Barry Allen over comms, discussing a meeting with Ben Affleck’s Batman. The last interaction between the two characters occurred in Zack Snyder’s Justice League towards the end of the film. Fans of Irons’ portrayal of Alfred will undoubtedly be delighted to witness his inclusion in The Flash.
As fans eagerly await the release of Ezra Miller’s film, speculation arises regarding other potential appearances. While it would be gratifying to see Henry Cavill’s Superman make a brief cameo, no confirmation has been provided. Similarly, a mention of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in The Flash could serve as a precursor to his standalone sequel scheduled for release later this year.
One character that fans should not expect to see in The Flash is Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. The actor’s contentious relationship with Warner Bros. has been well-documented, and it appears that his involvement in the film is unlikely. Furthermore, the absence of a profile icon for Cyborg on the new Max streaming series hints at the strained ties between Fisher and the studio.
It seems that The Flash marks a turning point for the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), as many familiar faces, including Ben Affleck’s Batman, will not be part of the new DCU moving forward. The upcoming Batman film, The Brave and the Bold, has already confirmed the casting of a new actor as the Caped Crusader, suggesting a fresh direction for the character and potentially impacting Alfred’s future as well. While it is uncertain if Alfred will make further appearances beyond The Flash, fans hope to catch a glimpse of him before the credits roll in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
As the DCU aims to revitalize its cinematic universe, perhaps now is the time for a fresh start, or at least a refreshing reboot, to invigorate fans and deliver captivating storytelling.
