A new poster for The Flash teases the return of Michael Keaton’s Batman. The poster, which was shared by Twitter user “TaurooAldebaran,” shows The Flash’s lightning bolt symbol merged with the classic Batman logo, complete with the pointed ears and the distinctive bat silhouette.
Many are excited to see Michael Keaton’s Batman back on the big screen after his portrayal of the DC Comics character in the 1989 Batman movie and its 1992 sequel Batman Returns. Keaton’s work as the character was widely praised and he remains a fan-favorite to this day.
The Flash is a highly-anticipated superhero movie based on the DC Comics character of the same name, starring Ezra Miller as the titular character. The movie marks Miller’s fifth outing as The Flash on the big screen, following the actor’s appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Justice League and the Peacemaker series on HBO Max.
Warner Bros. Discovery already has a script for a potential sequel to The Flash, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the man behind the two Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran did not discuss the Flash sequel during their DC Universe presentation.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
The Flash hits theaters on June 16, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the future of the DC Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
