The Flash movie just got a bit more exciting as one actor stated that it will be his last appearance as one of the biggest names in the movie. Not only is another Barry Allen rumored to have a cameo, but the leaks suggest that Ezra Miller could be seeing double, as an alternate version of Barry Allen (also played by Miller) could also appear.
For those who haven’t been paying attention, The Flash movie may seem low-key, but it will probably be the biggest DCEU movie this side of the Snyder Cut. That’s because it will be the big reboot for the DC movie world. And we just got a new “sneak peek” of The Flash at DC Fandome 2021.
Flash is quite unique in that his character can travel through time, provided the right circumstances are given. The film will use this to tell its own take on Flashpoint, a 2011 DC Comics story arc that changed the character stories of many top-tier superheroes we’re already familiar with. That means we will have Batman in the movie The Flash. Or rather, we have two Batman.

The Flash movie preview
Those with enough eagle eyes to distinguish one Batman actor’s hood from another received a great gift in this clip below. By the end of the footage where Barry Allen crosses the timelines, it appears that Michael Keaton’s Batman is back. And his Batmobile is about to go live.
The cast of the Flash movie
While we will see all things Batman next, the biggest news from the cast of The Flash movie is the new take on Barry Allen’s father. Billy Crudup is out and Rob Livingston (Office Space) is in. That news was given by Variety in March 2021, which noted that Billy Crudup’s conflicts with the filming of Apple TV Plus’ The Morning Show got in the way.
While The Flash movie will have a Supergirl, don’t expect The CW star Melissa Benoist. The role has been filled by Sasha Calle, best known for her time on The Young and the Restless as Lola Rosales.
Since this is a movie that breaks the space-time continuum, linking Earth 1 and Earth 2, we can expect the unexpected when it comes to who might appear in The Flash movie. We have two men appearing as Batman, why not alternate versions of other characters?
However, Ben Affleck has confirmed that The Flash will mark the finish his career as DC’s Batman.
The full cast (so far) is as follows:
- Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / The Flash
- Ben Affleck como Batman/Bruce Wayne
- Michael Keaton como Batman/Bruce Wayne
- Ron Livingston como Henry Allen
- Kiersey Clemons como Iris West
- Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen
- Sasha Calle as Supergirl
- Rudy Mancuso in a TBA role
The Flash Movie Set Photos
On July 19, 2021, the Twitter account @FlashFilmNews posted a series of photos from the set that appear to show Ezra Miller filming scenes with a body double who is supposed to be an alternate version of himself in the timeline. Yes, the other actor does not look like Miller, but it is believed that Miller will be digitally added to the other actor in post-production.
In July 2021, numerous photos were leaked from the set to reveal that the classic Batmobile and Batcave, Michael Keaton’s versions of both, will be in the film. The tweets with these photos have since been deleted.
Director Andy Muschietti loves using Instagram to promote The Flash movie, and his latest sneak peek reveals a bit of Kara Zor-El’s supersuit. We see a lot of texture, including a paisley pattern that’s inside that super-S.
The rumors of Grant Gustin’s cameo in the Flash movie
the illuminerdi, which certainly doesn’t have a solid and proven track record, claims that Grant Gustin (who played The Flash on the CW shows Arrowverse) will make a cameo appearance in the movie The Flash. The site credits unidentified sources for the scoop.
We don’t hear scoops from this site often, and it’s the latest claim (which has yet to be proven) is that the X-Men would make their MCU debut in a movie titled The Mutants. Perhaps both firsts will come true.
The Flash Movie: Michael Keaton as Batman
For The coat, Michael Keaton is confirmed to reprise the role of Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman, in the movie The Flash. in a previous interviewKeaton expressed concern about filming during the current Covid-19 pandemic, but has already informed the set.
This follows news that Keaton will be one of three Batman actors in the current DC movie. You have Robert Pattinson in The Batman movie in 2022, and both Ben Affleck and Keaton in The Flash.
The Flash movie logo
To celebrate the start of production, director Andy Muschietti (It, It Chapter 2) shared an animation that reveals the rather electric logo from The Flash movie.
The Flash movie release date
No matter how fast we want production to advance on The Flash, there will still be a bit of a wait. The film is scheduled to open on November 4, 2022.
The Flash movie trailer speculation
There are many clips on YouTube that have been featured as trailers for The Flash movie, but none are legitimate.
Given that production is still ongoing, we’d expect an actual trailer later this year or early 2022. A teaser could appear in front of Black Adam, but one added to The Suicide Squad seems too early.
