We know that DC Entertainment’s The Flash movie is going to be something special. Ben Affleck is coming back as Batman, Michael Keaton is coming back as Batman, and there is going to be a lot more characters included in the story. The movie is going to smash open the DC multiverse and director Andy Muschietti previously teased “all that you’ve seen exists”.
The Flash will see Barry Allen “breaking the bonds of physics to crash into various parallel dimensions, where he’ll encounter slightly different versions of DC’s classic heroes.”
The director of the also explained things a little further regarding how this new DC Multiverse is actually going to work, saying:
“This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it presents a story that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations that we’ve seen before are valid. It’s inclusive in the sense that it is saying all that you’ve seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”
Muschietti has now offered some new details on the film that is sure to get DC fans excited! During one of FanDome’s Fan Q&A the filmmaker shared his excitement for the project, and says, “it restarts everything and doesn’t forget anything”.
“Well, I want you to go see it, so I’m not going to tell you a lot. But what I will tell you is that it’s a ride. It’s going to be fun and exciting and there are a lot of DC characters in it. Flash is the superhero of this film because he is the bridge between all of these characters and timelines. And in a way, it restarts everything and doesn’t forget anything.”
The director also previously explained in the previous DC FanDome panel that the film will be a time travel story, saying:
“His mother was murdered, his father was trained and incarcerated, and all his journey from then was a man trying to make things right…the script really capture his loquacity, his personality…he’s someone who has the power of changing events of the past, but by doing so, can deteriorate the very fabric of the space-time continuum.”
Screenwriter Christina Hodson went on to say, “The cinematic multiverse is going to be born out of this movie. It’s born out of Barry’s story.”
It’s going to be really cool to see exactly how this story plays out! I hope that it goes above and beyond what I have imagined in my head. I really want this movie to be great! It has the potential and it has the creative talent. I just hope that they can actually pull it off!
