The Flash: Take A Look At Barry Allen's New Super Suit
Ezra Miller's Barry Allen is getting a new look for the upcoming movie.
The Flash movie has certainly been put through its paces, with multiple directors entering and exiting the project, script changes, and massive delays. However, it would seem that there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. The Flash's DC FanDome panel passed the mic to director (for real this time) Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey) to set the record straight and tease what will actually be happening in the final version of the film.
Oh, and they also debuted a brand new look at Barry Allen's new costume, which, Muschietti explained, was made by Batman himself. Take a look.
The movie will focus on Barry's ability to travel through time, and manipulate the DC Multiverse, something we've already seen glimpses of in the Arrowverse with the Crisis On Infinite Earths event.
Hodson admitted that her love for Barry Allen came from the Flashpoint comics, where Barry's origin was given a major overhaul. Flashpoint allowed Barry to travel back in time to prevent the murder of his mother, but in doing so critically affected the fabric of the DC multiverse. While the risks are great, Hodson and Miller explained that the Flash movie will represent a massive opportunity for the DCEU to link together all the disparate movies and canons that exist.
"It's the juxtaposition between his vulnerability and his immense power that is really what's exciting to me," Hodson said. Miller then continued, "This film is immensely important because if you look around the DC Universe, obviously we have all these characters that exist within their own bubbles. We even have multiple iterations of the same character. So by opening that door, all of these characters and stories can start to collide."
Recently we learned that both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will be reprising their roles at Batman for the movie--and, with any luck, there will be more announcements to that affect as the DC multiverse continues to grow and change.
