Spare a thought for the Scarlett Speedster.
Whereas Warner Bros. has successfully launched standalone pics for Kal-El (Man of Steel) and Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), not to mention laying the foundation for James Wan’s brewing Aquaman movie, if there’s one solo film that has struggled to hit the ground running, it’s The Flash.
Once earmarked for a release in 2018, Barry Allen’s spinoff movie has been pulled from Warner’s slate altogether since losing Seth Grahame-Smith came and Rick Famuyiwa. Word is that erstwhile Han Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller may go full circle to helm The Flash for Warner Bros., though we’re still waiting for a confirmation on that front, but fans can at least look forward to Ezra Miller suiting up as the Scarlet Speedster for Justice League.
Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s DC ensemble movie is on course for a release in November, and will no doubt be Warner’s main attraction at San Diego Comic-Con next weekend. But when it comes to Barry Allen, in particular, it appears as though Ezra Miller’s whip-smart hero will be sporting a more advanced costume when the lights go down on November 17th. At least, that’s according to Heroic.Gateway, which suggests that a new look at The Flash will be included in Entertainment Weely’s Comic-Con special. From what we understand, the pic below is merely a placeholder, so stay tuned for the full reveal!
You can thank Bruce Wayne for those subtle changes to Barry Allen’s crimson armor. Word is that Ben Affleck’s filthy rich billionaire develops a much-needed suit upgrade for Flash in Justice League – not unlike Tony Stark’s decision to lend a helping hand in Spider-Man: Homecoming – and we’re excited to see that costume receive the spotlight once EW’s latest issue graces newsstands later this week.
Expect more information to be unveiled when SDCC gets going on Thursday, July 20th. Justice League, meanwhile, hits theaters on November 17th.
