Filming for “The Flash” has officially wrapped! All we have to do now is wait for the arrival of the movie which is set to hit the theatres in 2022.
In 2017, “The Flash” was supposed to be released as one of the initial solo Detective Comics (DC) superhero films but unfortunately, the film didn’t happen. However, after many years glued in development, “The Flash” is having its standalone film. Ezra Miller will be seen playing as The Flash.
With the official release date finally out, we’ll fill you up with the deets of the much-anticipated movie. Here’s what we know about it.
The Flash Release Date: When is it arriving?
“The Flash” is scheduled to hit theatres on Friday, November 4, 2022. Still a year to go till we finally see the movie. Moreover, “The Flash” will likely premiere exclusively in theatres before landing on HBO Max. The movie will be available to stream after 45 days of its release theatrically. So, those who wish to wait rather than watching it on the screen can do so.
Who is in the upcoming cast for ‘The Flash’?
Ezra Miller will once again reprise his role as Barry Allen aka The Flash. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will play Batman. Joining them are Sasha Calle (as Supergirl), Kiersey Clemons (as Iris Wet), Maribel Verdu (as Nora Allen), and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen.
Additionally, Rudy Mancuso and Saoirse-Monica Jackson have both joined the cast but their roles have not been revealed yet.
“The Flash” Plot: What to expect?
The Flash movie is in some way, adapted from the Flashpoint story penned by Geoff Johns alongside Andy Kubert. In the story, Barry discovers that his mother wasn’t killed by his father, but by a villain named Eobard Thawne. Barry returns in time to avoid the killing, and when he goes back to the present, he learns that time has altered dramatically.
The official synopsis for the Flashpoint comics reads:
“When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It’s a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war -– but where are Earth’s Greatest Heroes to stop it? It’s a place where America’s last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of The Outsider, The Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet-altered faces! It’s a world that could be running out of time if The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the timeline!”
Speaking with EW, Ezra Miller revealed, “What fans understand when they hear Flashpoint would be almost like hearing a word like ‘Crisis.’ We start to understand that our precious DC universe will inevitably be torn asunder to an endless, headache-inducing fabric of multiversity. The DC Hyper-Extended Multiverse, as I plan to call it. Quote me!”
