Director Andy Muschiette stated in an interview that The Flash is supposed to restart the DC film universe. This does not erase the previous stripes.
The DC movie universe is like a pile of broken glass. The great success that the Marvel films could celebrate did not materialize. A new Batman film is being made, but it has nothing to do with the previous one. What will become of Superman is still unclear. But it seems that the Warner Bros. film studio is following a plan in which the strip The Flash plays a central role.
A restart through Flash
In an interview, director Andy Muschiette said: "The Flash is a very deep emotional story, but hopefully it will also be very funny and at the same time a great, epic adventure. And sometimes also terrifying. Flash is the superhero of this film because he is the bridge between all these characters and timelines. And in a way, the film sets everything going again without forgetting what was before. "
The Flash (buy now ) will probably create a new timeline in which we Actor Michael Keaton seen as Batman Thomas Wayne. But Ben Affleck also returns to his role as the Dark Knight. It is unclear whether Flash will restore the correct timeline. But if the film is to serve as a new beginning, then it only seems logical that some things will change due to the superhero's adventure.
We could see a whole new series of DC superhero films. Films that have nothing to do with the previous ones and that are based on the fact that Flash has changed the timeline. That offers many possibilities for the future. It could mean we'll see a new Superman again. A new Batman makes perfect sense if The Flash changes everything.
The real impact of The Flash on the DC film universe will be seen when the film is released. The strip is due to hit cinemas in summer 2022.
