Michael Keaton Teams Up With Ezra Miller (and Ezra Miller) in ‘The Flash’ Movie First Teaser
It's been so long since the movie "The Flash" was announced - 4 years! - that it almost feels like we've all traveled back in time to reach this moment. But no, you got here the normal, linear way (you're old lol) - unlike Barry Allen who really messes up pretty much everything in the universe by time travel.
But no hard feelings, because he also brought Michael Keaton's Batman back into our lives. Yay! And you can see for yourself in the first trailer that a fan uploaded before the official release.
Yes, yes, right now we only see the back of Keaton's club head, but Keaton's distinctive voice gives us the scene. Miller's Barry Allen can “go anywhere, any timeline, any universe,” explains Keaton's Batman. "Why do you want to stay and fight to save this one?"
"You changed the future," Keaton continues with footage of Barry, which presumably does just that. "And you changed the past."
Then we hear footsteps followed by dim lights that reveal the "Batman" 1989 version of the bat suit. "You in?" asks Barry. Batman doesn't answer, but if anyone cares, we definitely are.
Of course, we can say things are wildly screwed up, not just because Keaton's Batman is in the picture, but because at least two different Barry Allens (Barry's Allen?) Are asking for his help. Oops.
Loosely based on the 2011 DC Comics crossover event "Flashpoint" - previously announced as the title of the film at Comic-Con 2017 - Ezra Miller's Barry Allen travels back in time in "The Flash" to prevent his mother's death. But changing that one thing changes everything in the end, as Barry learns when he returns to the present. His old reality is gone, Barry is trapped in a new universe in which Gotham City is protected by Michael Keaton's Batman, who is now 30 years older, as TheWrap exclusively reported last year.
In addition to Keaton, who plays the Crusader for the first time since 1992, the film will also show Ben Affleck's version of Batman alongside Ron Livingston as Barry's father. Sasha Calle also plays Lara Lane Kent, the daughter of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, who serves as the supergirl of her era.
Apart from that, "The Flash" is expected to formally add the so-called DC Extended Universe of the films to the DC Multiverse. This concept was originally developed in "The Flash of Two Worlds" in 1961 to explain various contradicting changes that the characters of the company have undergone over the decades; in this case, to establish the Barry Allen and Jay Garrick versions of The Flash as existing in different universes.
DC has revamped the concept several times since then, best known in 1985's "Crisis on Infinite Earths," which drastically reduced the number of alternate universes and also restarted some of DC Comics' greatest characters. But for those who keep the score, "Flashpoint" also served as a continuity restart - something we expect to happen with what is now called the DC Extended Universe.
It is of course noteworthy that the DC Multiverse has already started. It was officially introduced into The CW's “Arrowverse” franchise, with “Supergirl” and “Black Lightning” explicitly established as separate universes from “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow”. But most recently, during The CW's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover event, films like "Wonder Woman" and "Justice League" were confirmed as part of the Arrowverse multiverse when Grant Gustins Barry Allen met Ezra Miller's Barry Allen.
Directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Christina Hodson ("Birds of Prey"), "The Flash" is planned for November 4, 2022.
