Michael Keaton’s Batman steals the show in new Flash trailer

  • Last night the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII.
  • The sporting event also saw a number of trailers released for upcoming movie projects, including DC’s The Flash.
  • In it we saw the new Supergirl, as well as returning characters in Zod, Battfleck, and Tim Burton’s Batman.

There is a lot happening over at DC Studios and its current slate of movie projects. Last year we saw The Flash film’s fate go up in the air thanks to the disturbing off-screen behaviour of Ezra Miller, and while it remains to be seen what the fate of the actor will be in the long term, it looks like DC is pushing ahead with the release of the film.

To that end we saw a new trailer for the project last night, which coincided with Super Bowl LVII, where the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38 to 35. In it we see the aforementioned Miller again, who is seemingly trying to reset past events in this universe. Much like the Flashpoint comic book series this film gains its inspiration from, it is not going to plan.

As such, it appears that Barry Allen needs to fix his mistake, both in his own universe, and another one.

We also get to see some other heroes in the form of two Batmen (or is it Batmans?), with Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck donning the cowls once again. The former really steals the show in the trailer, and despite being older, is more limber than ever while taking on a few bad guys. Keaton also says the line in the trailer, which may hint on the fact that Warner Bros wants to distract as much as possible from its deranged lead actor and lean on two veterans instead.

Along with the old Batmen returning, we also get to see more of Sasha Calle as Supergirl, and Michael Shannon as General Zod. It is unclear at this stage who else from the DC universe will be appearing in this film, but hopefully we don’t find that out until it his cinemas in June, with Warner Bros. having a tendency of spilling all the beans early (we’re looking at you here Dawn of Justice).

Speaking of which, The Flash is set for a global release on 16th June, but we should find out closer to the time when it will start screening locally.

With more recent DC films, excluding The Batman and Joker, failing to truly impress, what we have glimpsed so far for this project does look promising, albeit with an unhinged actor as its lead.
