Ben Affleck Reveals Another Actor's Flash Movie Cameo

There's one more big cameo surprise for The Flash movie.


DC's upcoming The Flash solo movie is seen as a send-off to the old DCEU before the new guard is established with James Gunn and Peter Safran's Gods and Monsters movement. Actor Ezra Miller was cast as Barry Allen/The Flash when they were just 22 and after numerous delays and false starts, The Flash finally hits theaters in June.

The film's first trailer showed Barry disrupting the main timeline--as he tends to do now and then--and showed the return of Michael Shannon's General Zod a decade later. The obvious notable cameos are Michael Keaton as Batman after over 30 years, and Sasha Calle's Supergirl, but there's still one more that hasn't been seen.

Ben Affleck went on the Smartless podcast to promote the upcoming Nike biopic Air (via THR), and revealed another central DC character that appears in the film. Fans can probably guess based on the other recent DC recent movie, but we'll keep the reveal below this spoiler warning.

Spoiler warning for The Flash following this.

"I don't want to give spoilers but it was a scene where I get caught—I get saved—by Wonder Woman during a conflagration with some bad guys,” Affleck said during the episode. "She saves me...with the Lasso of Truth. And so what happens is that Batman divulges some of his real feelings about his life and his work."

Again, Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, making a small cameo in the movie, possibly for the last time. Gadot was cast around the same time as Miller and was first seen on screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. From there she had her solo movie in 2017 and appeared in Justice League (both versions) and recently Shazam!: Fury of the Gods.

Despite the main star of The Flash being a PR nightmare the past year, early reviews for the film have been surprisingly top-notch. James Gunn himself praised the movie as "f----ing amazing" and one of the best comic book movies ever.

The Flash arrives in theaters on June 16.
