In anticipation of the Super Bowl, Warner Bros. has released new footage from “The Flash.”.
After first appearing in a cameo role way back in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Miller suited up as the Scarlet Speedster once again — this time for their own solo movie. In the new trailer, Miller’s Barry Allen encounters not one, but two Batmen – Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton – and another version of him. Sasha Calle’s Supergirl makes her debut as Supergirl. Michael Shannon’s General Zod returns from “Man of Steel” and Michael Shannon’s Supergirl will also appear.
Also appearing are Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Antje Traue, and Maribel Verdú.
The trailer marks the first major promotional material for the film since a series of controversies surrounding Miller. “The Flash” has faced a troubled runway over the past year with Miller’s numerous legal troubles. In March 2022, Miller was arrested twice in Hawaii within one month, first for disorderly conduct and harassment and then for second-degree assault. They pled no contest to the assault charge and the harassment charge was later dismissed. In January, Miller took a plea deal in a Vermont case, pleading guilty to a charge of unlawful trespassing and having two other criminal cases pending.
“The Flash” is expected to play a major role in the evolution of DC’s onscreen stories, serving as a reboot ahead of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s plans for the DC Universe.
The script was written by Christina Hodson and produced by Michael Disco and Barbara Muschietti. Andy Muschietti directed “It” and its sequel in 2017.
Watch the trailer for “The Flash” before it hits theaters on June 16.
