The Flash trailer | Michael Keaton returns as Batman in first trailer for troubled superhero film

We finally have our very first trailer for Andy Muschietti’s The Flash, in which Ezra Miller portrays the titular superhero.

Miller, who uses they/them pronouns, has been embroiled in a variety of scandals. The actor apologised for their behaviour and said they were seeking help for their issues. 

Some reports claimed that Miller would not continue as The Flash in the DCEU, but James Gunn, DC’s new co-CEO, recently called The Flash “one of the greatest superhero movies ever made”. 

And now, we have a trailer to give us a glimpse of whether Gunn’s statement is true or not. 

We must say, the film looks good. Ben Affleck returns as Batman, as does Michael Keaton. General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, is also glimpsed in the star-studded trailer. Kiersey Clemons returns to her role as Iris West, and Sasha Calle will play Kara Zor-El, also known as Supergirl. 

The synopsis reads: “Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?”

Written by Christina Hodson, the film brings the ‘Flashpoint’ storyline from the comics to life. Barry is desperate to save his mother but jumbles his reality and seeks help from an alternate version of himself, as we see in the trailer. 

There are still a few months to go before we’ll see for ourselves if The Flash truly is as good as Gunn claims. The film is set to be released in cinemas on 16 June.
