The latest promo for Justice League has Batman teaching The Flash how best to be a hero. Over the coming weeks, Warner Bros and DC will be putting the focus on the individual members of the Justice League with new promos, new posters, and interviews with the actors. Things kicked off last week with Jason Momoa premiering new footage of Aquaman in Justice League. This week, it's all about The Flash.
Ezra Miller began 'Flash Week' a few days ago with a new promo video, and that was soon followed by a motion poster spotlighting Barry Allen and his superhero alter-ego. The Flash is fairly well-known in popular culture thanks to his decades in comics and TV shows, and The CW's The Flash has only raised his profile. Still, Justice League will offer a younger, more socially awkward take on the hero. As such, the minds behind the movie are keen to get audiences acquainted with the latest version of the Scarlet Speedster.
AT&T released an exclusive look at Justice League today, and it offers lots of new footage of The Flash in the film. Most of the material comes from scenes where Barry interacts with Bruce Wayne/Batman, from the first time they meet to right before a big battle. As one of the youngest members of the team, The Flash will be sorely lacking in experience. However, with an impressive power set, it's hard to deny his usefulness in a fight.
Justice League will serve as audiences' proper introduction to The Flash in the DC cinematic universe. While Aquaman's origins will be explored onscreen next year, Justice League will need to lay the foundation for the Fastest Man Alive before his solo movie, Flashpoint, upends everything. Knowing that, it looks like Batman will be a big part of teaching the young speedster how to be a hero.
Along with the new footage, the promo also features Miller talking about Barry Allen and his abilities. While The Flash has spent years exploring Barry's powers from the comics, they've only been teased in the DC film universe so far. Miller mentions both the Speed Force and The Flash's ability to bend time, which will probably both be big factors in Flashpoint. Given The Flash's cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, however, they could also have an impact on this year's film. Luckily, we only have to wait a few more months for Justice League to arrive.
