Flash Mystery: The Actual Plot
While dedicated fans know that the movie is taking some cues from the Flashpoint storyline of the comics, director Andy Muschietti has said that it is more in name than in actual plot, not unlike how Captain America: Civil War was loosely based on the Marvel event series. So the question comes up, what exactly is the movie about.
Fans know that Flash will be going through the multivers, but does this happen when he tries to go back in time to save his mom or is there another event that kicks things off?
At this time, there are still plenty of plot questions that haven’t been answered. But with filming set to start in March 2021, more information should be coming soon.
‘The Flash’ Release date: When is it coming out?
Warner Bros. has officially announced that The Flash, barring any significant delays, will be arriving in theaters on June 3, 2022.
It’s one of seven live-action DC Comics adaptations that will be arriving between now and the end of 2022.
Part of the reason it is so far off is because Ezra Miller is contracted to appear in the third Fantastic Beast movie, which is planning to start filming in October 2020 and will be out in November 2021.
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, Wally West 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.
As you can probably surmise, The Flash doesn’t have a trailer yet because principal photography has not begun, and therefore there is no existing footage that can be edited together.
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 was originally scheduled to hit theatres on 1st July 2022 but has now been brought forward to 3rd June 2022.
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.
