The buzz surrounding The Flash is huge, especially after shooting spot photos and videos featuring some of the lead stars of the film have gone viral on social media. In that light, the team has been filming key action sequences centered around the popular DC Comics' superhero character Batman with a stunt double and photos and videos subsequently trending on social media. In that light, there are now fresh videos from the The Flash sets showing some of the intense action scenes being filmed at Glasgow, including one sequence that has a police cannon vehicle ramming into a water fountain with junior artistes seen jumping out of the path.
The Flash stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. a.k.a. the Flash, who debuted in a cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, following which he reprised his role once again in the 2017 DC superhero team-up film, Justice League, alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and Henry Cavill’s Superman. Ezra was seen as the Flash once again in Zack Snyder's Justice League when it streamed on HBO Max this past March as fans got to witness a fresh take on the character, which included a longer arc at the iconic comic book heroes.
According to early reports, The Flash, which is the character's first live-action standalone film, will see Barry travel back in time to prevent the death of his mother, which inadvertently causes his own timeline to get altered. The film will feature two versions of Batman where Ben Affleck will reprise his role as the current DC Extended Universe’s Batman, while veteran actor Michael Keaton, who portrayed the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman and the 1992 Batman Returns, is once again returning as an older Batman from an alternate timeline.
Being directed by It fame Andy Muschietti, The Flash announced to hit theatres worldwide on November 4, 2022 also includes Sasha Calle as Supergirl, whose superpowers bear resemblance to Superman, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Barry's romantic interest, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Barry’s mother, and Ron Livingston replacing Billy Crudup, as Henry Allen, Barry’s father who gets blamed and arrested for Nora's death.
