The Flash Movie Details
The Flash movie, directed by Andy Muschietti, has been back and forth with release dates and working around Ezra Miller’s filming schedule. Ezra will be playing the scarlet speedster in the film that is now slated to be released in November 2022. Yes, that is still quite a way to go but details are slowly unraveling as we creep closer to the release date.
The Logo and Lightning
Fresh from Twitter, The Flash logo has been released. The Flash movie changes Barry’s Lightning color. Below, you can see that the lighning has changed from Justice League’s blue to yellow. The color change can be significant for a number of reasons.
The promo could be revealing to the viewer, that Barry’s power could be coming from a different place. This could signal that there is evolution or personal growth that is responsible for the change. Either way, we will have to wait to know more about this as it seems to be important to the story.

The Flash movie story is said to take some inspiration from The Flashpoint Paradox, from DC Comics. During that moment, the scarlet speedster runs so fast that the speed force teleports him across time. Barry tries to save his mother from Reverse Flash, thus unveiling a different universe where both of his parents are alive and involved in his life.
Barry Allen will be exploring the alternate universes and the multiverse. The story will involve overcoming his past (the storyline involving his parents) and deciding on how The Flash will stepping into his future.
Some of his powers were revealed at the end of Snyder’s Batman v. Superman movie where The flash travels back in time to deliver a message to the Cape Crusader. Barry’s time traveling talents were also sneak peaked in the Justic League movie.
With alternate parallel universes and time traveling confirmed, it is now clearer why many characters may appear. One character in particular, Michael Keeton’s Batman. Also present is Ben Afleck’s Batman. Their presence could be for emotional tone as Bruce has dealt with his parent’s deaths. Batman may have some words for the speedster that will propel his emotional growth through the film. This is speculation but it seems likely, a route they will take.
Maribel Verdú, Sasha Calle, Kiersey Clemons and Ron Livingston are set to join Miller on screen. They will portray Nora Allen, Supergirl, Iris West and Barry Allen’s father Henry, respectively. The Flash will also feature Young and the Restless actresss, Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Calle will be the first Latina to portray the character. Melissa Benoist wil be ending her portrayal of Supergirl on CW and this could open the door for Sasha Calle to explore her own version of the super powered female.
