It’s been well over a year since we saw the first teaser for The Flash at DC FanDome, but we may not have to wait much longer for our next look at the scarlet speedster. According to The Wrap, the first official trailer for The Flash will debut at Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023.
Not only that, but The Flash trailer will also reportedly screen in front of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which debuts in theaters on February 17th, just five days after the Super Bowl. The buzz surrounding The Flash has been extremely positive, with test screenings said to be going very well, but you’ve got to wonder how the Ezra Miller controversies and the restructuring of the DC Universe will affect it. The movie was supposed to include cameos from several DC heroes, including Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, but recent reports have suggested that those have been removed.
Much of The Flash is still being kept under wraps, but the film is expected to find Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) travelling back in time to prevent the murder of his mother, which brings unintended consequences to his own timeline. In addition to Miller, The Flash also stars Kiesey Clemons as Iris West, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, and Ben Affleck and Micheal Keaton both reprising their roles of Bruce Wayne/Batman.
After months of scandalous headlines and deeply troubling behaviour, Ezra Miller finally agreed to seek professional help back in August and offered an apology. “Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.” The Flash has gone through many release dates, going back to the first announced date of March 23, 2018. It then skipped through several potential dates in 2022 before finally settling (we hope) on June 16, 2023.
