With the Snyder Cut sparking renewed interest in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Warner Bros. is finally blazing ahead with the Justice League spin-off movie starring the World’s Fastest Man. The start of principal photography in London was announced by Benjamin Wallfisch, who is composing the score for The Flash. Wallfisch made his first foray into the DCEU on SHAZAM! and he previously worked for Flash director Andy Muschietti on It. In his Instagram announcement, Wallfisch also revealed the official logo for the movie.
The movie stars Ezra Miller as Wally West, aka the Flash, and it is based, at least in part, on the 2011 DC Comics event Flashpoint. The series explored how the Flash altered reality by choosing to go back in time to save the life of his mother. The series rebooted the continuity of the entire DC Comics line of books and, while the movie isn’t expected to be that ambitious, alternate versions of characters are expected to make appearances. Michael Keaton has just been confirmed to appear in the movie as a reprisal of his Bruce Wayne/Batman character from Tim Burton‘s 1989 Batman movie.
The Flash is slated to open in theaters on November 4, 2022.
