The Flash Promo Art Reveals New Looks at Batman and Supergirl's Costumes
New promotional material for The Flash reveals highly-detailed looks at Batman and Supergirl's crime-fighting threads.
The images, which made their way to Twitter, are largely full-body shots of the DC Universe movie's core heroes; alongside the aforementioned characters, one of the pictures also depicts Barry Allen himself. The artwork, which appears to be a linking poster, provides a clear shot of Sasha Calle's Kara Zor-El costume which is largely inspired by Henry Cavill's suit in Man of Steel. As for Michael Keaton's Caped Crusader, his return to the world of superheroes seemingly upgrades his classic Batsuit with a sleeker, more advanced aesthetic. While many adjustments have been made to the actual body but it remains unknown if the flexibility of the cowl has been improved.
As for The Flash's titular hero, his costume has been the spotlight of several trailers and posters, with many fans appreciating its trim design, accentuated by the golden accents running over the limbs. Beyond the suit, many enthusiasts have also praised the movie for giving Barry Allen his iconic ring which allows him to don his out with a quick and easy transformation. How this plays out in action remains unknown but a shot from one of The Flash's trailers details the piece of tech unwrapping itself on Barry Allen's finger.
The Flash Messes With the DCU
The Flash will serve as the Scarlet Speedster's first live-action solo movie, having appeared alongside the rest of his crime-fighting colleagues in DC Extended Universe films such as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. While specific details on the plot are still largely unknown, Warner Bros. Discovery has confirmed that the narrative will see the titular hero use the Speedforce to travel back in time to try and prevent the loss of his parents. In doing so, Barry Allen inadvertently creates a world without metahumans, which proves to be major trouble when General Zod mounts a planet-wide invasion.
While many fans are excited to see The Flash, the film could have major ramifications for the entire cinematic franchise. DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn has confirmed that the film will reset several aspects of the DCU, potentially erasing or replacing certain characters and actors. How this unfolds in its entirety remains to be seen, several insiders insist The Flash will pave the way for the DCU's first chapter, Gods and Monsters.
The Flash bolts into theaters on June 16.
