A new promotional image for the upcoming DC movie The Flash has been revealed by director Andy Muschietti. The movie stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, and it's set for release on November 4, 2022.

The image continues the theme of previous images that Muschietti has posted on Instagram, in that it's a close-up of a logo on a superhero costume. While earlier logos showed either the Flash or Batman's logos, this one combines the two, with the iconic bat symbol set into the Flash's suit, and the latter's lightning bolt placed on top. Check it out below:

Batman plays a big part in The Flash, and we're set to get two versions of the character from previous DC movies. Ben Affleck--the most recent Bruce Wayne--will be joined by Michael Keaton, who played the character in the two classic Tim Burton movies from the late '80s and early '90s. The movie will reportedly be influenced by the classic Flashpoint storyline from DC comic books, in which Barry enters alternate timelines.

The Flash also stars Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen. The movie has taken a long time to reach production--it was stuck in development for years and went through a revolving door of directors, including Seth Grahame-Smith, Rick Famuyiwa, and John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

In a recent interview with Collider, Keaton spoke about returning to the character after so many years. "Without giving anything away--because I can't--the first introduction is so good," he said. "When we walked on and started talking about a couple of shots and angles, I went, 'Whoa, this is big. This is great.' I don't mean for me, I mean the imagery is really great and reminiscent, to some degree, of Tim Burton."
