During the DC FanDome event director Andy Muschietti, producer Barbara Muschietti, screenwriter Christina Hodson and star Ezra Miller revealed concept art showing the new Flash costume as well as Keaton returning as The Dark Knight.
The concept art for the character’s new and improved suit come courtesy of Bruce Wayne, the billionaire brainiac best known for donning Batman’s cape and cowl, and the man who designed Barry’s costume.
“It’s more organic you can see light embedded in it,” said director Andy Muschietti. The exciting news for fanboys and fangirls is The Flash will introduce the concept of the multiverse — allowing various iterations of DC heroes from both the big and small screen to interact in one narrative adventure.
“All of these stories and characters can start to collide,” said screenwriter Christina Hodson, adding. “The cinematic multiverse is going to be borne out of this movie.”
The film, the first standalone adventure for the Flash after an appearance in Justice League and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, will deal with time travel, with Muschietti promising a film that will deliver both.
The Flash has yet to film, but the production team gave a few hints about what action will unfold across the big screen, with Miller promising the film will explore “the juxtaposition between [the Flash’s] vulnerability and his immense power.”
Ben Affleck is also set to appear in the film as once again as Batman. In addition to The Flash, Affleck will be seen in the role slightly than Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Warner Bros. first revealed their Flash film would be inspired by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert’s Flashpoint.
The Flash is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 1, 2022.
