The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller has finally started production.
As reported by Deadline, creative team and It filmmakers brother and sister team Andy and Barbara Muschietti are currently with Ezra Miller (who will play as Barry Allen, aka, The Flash) in London to start production on the standalone film after years of delays.
The upcoming American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name is intended to be the twelfth film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The project is produced by DC Films, The Disco Factory, and Double Dream, and set for distribution by Warner Bros. Pictures.
The DC solo film will reportedly feature the Flashpoint storyline created by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert for DC Comics in 2011. In the story, Barry travels back in time in a bid to prevent his mother’s death. But in doing so, he wakes up in an entirely different timeline: his mother Nora is alive while his father, Henry, who is alive in his own timeline, died from a heart attack.
Ezra Miller is reprising his role as the Scarlet Speedster, having previously appeared in the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Suicide Squad (2016), Justice League (2017) and Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021). Ian Loh will play a young Barry Allen.
Miller will be joined in the film by two different versions of Batman in the DC live-action multiverse, bringing both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton as an older version of the Dark Knight. Based on previous news reports, Keaton will play an older version of Wayne from an alternative reality, reprising his iconic role from Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) for the first time in 30 years.
The Young and the Restless star and Daytime Emmy Nominee, Sasha Calle will also debut in Warner Bros' The Flash feature film as Supergirl.
Warner Bros. has officially announced that The Flash, barring any significant delays, is expected to arrive in theaters on November 4, 2022.
