Michael Keaton appears to be saving the contentious Flash film, the first trailer for which has been published. The Flash stars troubled actor Ezra Miller as Barry Allen – or, more accurately, two versions of him – and social media is expressing the widespread fury that Warner Bros. is continuing with the film despite Ezra’s numerous arrests and legal difficulties. Aside from that, Michael Keaton is back as Batman, and the Internet is ecstatic. The debut trailer for The Flash depicts Barry Allen travelling through time and becoming imprisoned in a multiverse where multiple realities collide. Barry meets a version of himself, and with supervillain General Zod (Michael Shannon reprising his role) as the main evil in this reality, the Barrys must enlist Batman’s assistance.
Details about The Flash Trailer – Michael Keaton Says “I’m Batman,” And The Internet Goes Wild
It turns out to be Michael Keaton’s iconic Batman from Tim Burton’s 1990s blockbusters, Batman and Batman Returns. Ben Affleck also appears as Bruce Wayne from Barry’s original timeline, which is quite meta. The thrills, though, come from the iconic “I’m Batman” line delivered by the original Caped Crusader of the big screen.
There’s also no denying that Ezra Miller’s presence in the picture is problematic.
Michael Keaton’s return as Batman has been severely delayed – he was to have resumed the role that made him an icon in the unreleased Batgirl picture, which would have opened last year if the studio hadn’t shelved it (much to the dismay of fans). Michael Keaton appeared in Morbius last year as Vulture, the villain he plays in the Spider-Man flicks.
Ezra Miller, who played The Flash in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Justice League (as well as its Zack Snyder cut), is facing numerous allegations of harassment, misconduct, and inappropriate behaviour. They are also suspected of grooming an 18-year-old Native American and were charged with burglary, which was later dismissed.
The Flash, starring Sasha Calle as Supergirl, is set to premiere in June.
