“The Flash” Takes the Stage Ahead of Super Bowl with New Footage Release

Ezra Miller is back as the Scarlet Speedster in their solo film “The Flash.” A new trailer released by Warner Bros. showcases Miller’s Barry Allen colliding with another version of himself and two Batmen, Ben Affleck, and Michael Keaton. The film also introduces Michael Shannon’s General Zod from “Man of Steel” and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl.

An Impressive Cast Joins the Action

Alongside the lead stars, “The Flash” features an accomplished cast, including Kiersey Clemons, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Antje Traue, and Maribel Verd. This latest trailer is the first major promotional material for the film since Miller’s series of controversies.

A Film Plagued with Controversies

The past year has been tumultuous for “The Flash” due to Miller’s legal issues. In March of 2022, they were arrested twice in Hawaii and accepted a no-contest plea for an assault charge while the harassment charge was dropped. In January, Miller took a plea deal for unlawful trespassing in Vermont, and two other charges were dismissed. Most recently, Miller faced accusations of choking a woman in an Icelandic bar and harassing another woman in her Berlin residence.

Rebooting the DC Universe

The Flash” will serve a significant role in DC’s onscreen evolution and as a reboot for James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new vision for the DC Universe. Directed by Andy Muschietti, the film features a script written by Christina Hodson and produced by Michael Disco and Barbara Muschietti.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Double Dream/a Disco Factory production of an Andy Muschietti film, “The Flash.” It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures and is set to open in theaters in North America on June 16, 2023, and internationally beginning on June 14, 2023.

Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change past events. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening destruction, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is unless Barry can coax a different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life to save the world he is in and return to the future that he knows. But will making the ultimate sacrifice enough to reset the universe?
