Frequently asked questions about ‘The Flash’ movie
Why is ‘The Flash’ movie taking so long?
Unlike the Green Lantern Corps movie, which has seen the same creative team quietly toiling away on the project for years now, the Flash movie has seen itself delayed countless times.
This is partially due to mundane factors like Miller’s commitments to fellow Warner Bros. franchise Fantastic Beasts.
Who is the fastest speedster?
Wally West (DC) The original Kid Flash and the third guy to put on the Scarlet Speedster’s suit, is the fastest Flash of them all.
Who is the most powerful flash?
Wally West is irrefutably the most powerful flash, by a long shot. Wally carried the mantle from 1986 to the late 2000s. He discovered the speed force, became a part of the speed force itself and created the powers The Flash is most famous for.
Is Ben Affleck coming back as Batman?
Vanity Fair reports Ben Affleck has agreed to reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in “The Flash” movie. Director Andy Muschietti (“It”) confirmed Affleck’s return and the role he’ll play in the 2022 film.
There’s still a little while to wait. The Flash is coming out on November 4, 2022 in the United States.
Fans have already had to wait for a very long time to see a standalone film for the Scarlet Speedster, with Miller having already signed on as long ago as 2014 – so by the time we see the film, it’ll be almost a decade after the star agreed to play the character.
