Four superhero movies from the DC Universe are coming next year. While each deserves the hype, The Flash is arguably the most anticipated of them all for all the wrong and right reasons.
For one, The Flash will bring back Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as Batman. On top of that, the movie reportedly released screening scores similar to the Dark Knight Trilogy. Of course, it’s hard to deny the elephant in the room, which is Ezra Miller. The actor has been making headlines lately for not-so-heroic reasons. Although Miller has since met with executives from Warner Bros. Discovery and apologized for his behavior, it’s hard to believe the media and general public will ignore everything he’s allegedly done in recent months.
That said, a new trailer for The Flash would have helped alleviate some of the anxiety surrounding the oft-delayed film.
Unfortunately, while Miller shoots more scenes for The Flash, the trailer still has a long way to go.
According to One Take News, a trailer for The Flash won’t be released until next year. Several other sources corroborated the claims, with The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzale teasing that he “knows what movie it will be.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the trailer will arrive as soon as Shazam! Fury of the Gods premieres March 17. It’s far but it makes a lot of sense. DCU will want to use the time by March to market the Shazam! sequel after going all-out on Black Adam, which recently delivered a huge box office take on opening weekend. It’s also worth noting that three months is the average time between the arrival of a film’s first trailer and its premiere.
Of course, knowing that it’s pretty normal doesn’t hurt any less to wait for the first big trailer for The Flash when it should have been released a long time ago.
Fingers crossed, The Flash and its trailer do not disappoint. We’re pretty sure fans are eager to see more of Keaton’s Batman, especially in light of Batgirl’s cancellation. There’s also the new girl, Sasha Calle and her Supergirl, who deserves more attention in upcoming trailers.
Speaking of the DCU, new DC Studios head James Gunn teases that the DCU will take inspiration from DC Comic’s Greatest Stories Ever Told series.
