Ezra Miller teases Barry Allen's "large and powerful arc" in the upcoming ‘Flash’ movie. Miller made his DCEU debut as Barry Allen in 2016's ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, which was a quick cameo, and returned for a prominent role in 2017's ‘Justice League’. After a long and tumultuous time in development, Miller's Scarlett Speedster is finally getting his own solo outing that just finished production ahead of its scheduled release on November 4, 2022.
From it, director Andy Muschietti and Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson, ‘The Flash’ is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated DCEU movies in recent years. The film will feature a multiverse-centric plot that will see Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck both reprising their roles as Bruce Wayne/Batman, along with two Barry Allens and the introduction of Sasha Calle of Supergirl, much of which was recently teased in the DC FanDome first look.
Now, during a virtual appearance at DC FanDome China (per Comicbook), Ezra Miller teased Barry Allen's "very large and powerful arc" in the forthcoming ‘Flash’ movie. Miller spoke about how the film will be both an origin story and a "coming-into-his-own story," for his character, resulting in a "big arc for Barry."
Miller's comments are just the latest reminder that the upcoming ‘Flash’ movie is first, a solo outing for Barry Allen, despite much of the fanfare being centred on Keaton reprising his role as Batman and Calle's introduction as ‘Supergirl’. The film will be adapting the famous Flashpoint storyline from the comics, which sees Barry going back in time to prevent the death of his mother, who will be played by Maribel Verdú. This is likely how Barry will crack open the multiverse, giving way to the two Barrys and Keaton's return. -Collider
