YES, Ezra Miller will be reprising his role of The Flash – Barry Allen in his standalone DCEU film.
Justice League may not have pulled in as many numbers as the Studio wanted, but interest in The Flash has been present, and with the latest DCEU-CW crossover during Crisis on Infinite Earths, fans are more than ready for the movie.
When does The Flash come to theatres?
The Flash is slated to release on July 1, 2020.
Ezra Miller will reprise his role as Barry Allen, with Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Billy Crudup is in talks to play Dr Henry Allen, Barry’s father.
The Plot this time around
The popular Flashpoint is what the movie’s plot will revolve around. In it, Barry learns that his mother wasn’t murdered by his father, but by an evil speedster named Eobard Thawne. Barry goes back in time to prevent the murder (and thus keep his father out of prison), and when he returns to the present, he finds that time has changed dramatically.
Geoff Johns added that even though two adaptations of Flashpoint have already been seen (the animated film, and the TV Show: The Flash), “There are elements in it that we’re going to be playing into that we couldn’t do anywhere else…The scale of it, the Batman story of it all.”
This could be Batman’s closure arc since in Flashpoint it is Thomas Wayne who takes up the mantle of the Dark Knight, and not Bruce Wayne(Ben Affleck). The problem, of course, is that Affleck is long gone from the DCEU, and Robert Pattinson is the new Batman. It seems unlikely that Warner Bros. would want to reopen old wounds here.
In any case, this won’t be like any other superhero movie.
