‘The Flash’ Trailer: Michael Keaton Offers A Dose Of Nostalgia As Batman In New DCEU Movie
DC Studios, and by extension the DCEU, has been in the news lately because of the major overhaul that it’s currently going through. With new films and series being developed and other franchises being cancelled, the future of many of our favourite characters is, to put it simply, quite up in the air. Well, one character that we definitely won’t have to worry about seeing again is The Flash, as the trailer for the new movie finally dropped on Monday during the Super Bowl.
Here is what we know so far about the exciting new entry in the DCEU.
What is The Flash’s new movie about?
Starring Ezra Miller in the titular role, The Flash will see the superhero travel back in time to prevent his mother’s murder. However, his actions have unintended consequences, and now the future of humanity is at risk as well. The trailer also showed us a glimpse of General Zod promising to be a deadly nemesis, although fortunately for Barry, he is not alone in this fight. Speaking of which…

Perhaps the most exciting part about The Flash’s trailer was the appearance of Michael Keaton aka the original Batman who is returning as the caped crusader after three decades. The film will also see the return of Ben Affleck as the Batman we’ve grown to love in the DCEU. Besides the two Batmans, the trailer also showed us a brief glimpse of another one of Barry’s allies aka Supergirl.
How Twitter is responding to the new trailer
While Twitter is praising the return of Michael Keaton, fans are a bit apprehensive about the new movie, given Ezra Miller’s controversies (and lack of accountability).
Michael Keaton…I love his Batman but not enough to overlook or ignore the fact that THE FLASH in this film is played by Ezra Miller, who has yet to face any consequences for the harm caused and violence done to people including minors, around the world.
It’s still NO for me. https://t.co/cnXbA2uOk5
