Central City All But Confirmed For Zack Snyder’s Justice League Movie


Day by day, we’re beginning to get a closer look at DC’s finest as they’ll appear in November’s Justice League movie. First we had the action shots of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman rising from the depths, before director Zack Snyder shifted the focus over to Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, with 3D renders and a conspicuous photo teasing the minor changes being made to that iconic Batsuit.

Next up, it’s the Flash’s turn to be placed under the spotlight – or, more specifically, the bustling metropolis he calls home. A seemingly innocuous Facebook post from the British Society of Cinematographers has confirmed that Central City, Barry Allen’s long-time stomping ground, will feature in Justice League after all.

First spotted by Comic Book, the image showcases cinematographer Fabian Wagner on set, and though a camera rig obscures the sign in the backdrop, it clearly reads Central City. Lean in close and you’ll even spy an adjacent sign reading ‘reduce speed ahead,’ which is surely a tongue-in-cheek nod to Ezra Miller’s Scarlett Speedster.

Here’s that post in question:

In the eyes of executive producer Ben Affleck, it’s the DCEU’s rebirth, and we’ll find out for sure whether Justice League can really reverse Warner’s fortunes on November 17, 2017. Things aren’t so set in stone for Barry Allen’s solo movie, however. After losing not one, but two directors in Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, The Flash‘s July 2018 release date is surely subject to change. It’s not all doom and gloom for Miller’s hero, though, as Jason Momoa considers the Flash to be his favorite member of the DC ensemble.
