‘The Flash’: Andy And Barbara Muschietti Explain Their Cinematic Trip Through The Multiverse

The Flash
The Flash is going big with the Multiverse, bringing back Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Michael Keaton as a different Batman. Now, the creative team behind the film explains what they’re getting into at DC FanDome.


After teasing the film with a surprise cameo from Miller in Crisis on Infinite Earths on The CW, DC Films are now expanding their horizons by embracing the concept of the Multiverse on film. The first-ever Flash movie is going to go big by tackling this, while also telling a very personal story about Barry Allen himself.


Present at the panel were Ezra Miller, Christina Hodson, and Andy and Barbara Muschietti. They explained that a big element of the story is heavily inspired by Flashpoint, with Barry Allen going back in time in an attempt to save his mother. However, in the process, his actions create a butterfly effect that results in a massive Crisis-level event that changes everything. However, it appears that instead of creating an alternate timeline, this adaptation of the story is going to open up the Multiverse.


During the panel, Christina Hodson explained that the film will really get into exploring the Speed Force. Meanwhile, Andy Muschietti shared concept art of The Flash’s new costume, which is created by the Batman of his world. You can see that concept art below:




The Flash is to be directed by Andy Muschietti (both IT movies) and written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey (and the Fantablous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)), and will also be produced by Barbara Muschietti (both IT movies) and Michael Disco (Game Night). The movie is tentatively set to start filming early next year in order to make a June 3, 2022 release date, although that may change due to production delays caused by COVID-19.
