The Flash Gets Nuts With Life-Size Michael Keaton, Ezra Miller Statues

Michael Keaton and Ezra Miller are starring in DC Studios' The Flash movie.

To promote the upcoming theatrical release of The Flash movie, DC Studios treated moviegoers to two life-sized statues of Ezra Miller’s scarlet speedster and Michael Keaton’s Batman.

The life-sized statues of the iconic DC superheroes are currently displayed in limited theaters. One of the selected theaters is seemingly located at a theater in Japan, where the statues are placed in front of The Flash’s official posters which continue to show off the titular hero and Batman’s upgraded costumes for the long-in-development superhero movie.

The Flash is directed by horror filmmaker Andy Muschietti from a screenplay written by Birds of Prey’s Christina Hodson, based on a story by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein and Joby Harold. Daley and Goldstein were originally hired to write and direct the long-awaited project. However, the Game Night co-directors ultimately exited The Flash due to creative differences with Miller and the Warner Bros. Discovery.

In addition to Miller and Keaton, the film will also feature the return of Ben Affleck, Michael Shannon, and Kiersey Clemons as they reprise the respective roles of Bruce Wayne/ The Dark Knight, General Zod and Iris West. In Feb. 2021, The Young and the Restless actor Sasha Calle nabbed her first feature project when she was officially chosen to play Kara Zor-El/ Supergirl.

The Flash Movie Almost Included Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen

In a previous interview, Muschietti admitted there were originally plans to feature a cameo appearance from Grant Gustin’s version of Barry Allen. However, they eventually decided to scrap the idea from the final cut of The Flash, along with other high-profile DC cameos including Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman. Gustin’s cameo would have potentially reunited him with Miller’s Barry Allen after three years since first meeting during the Arrowverse’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Four” crossover event.

DC Studios’ The Flash is inspired by the famous “Flashpoint” storyline from the comics, which featured Barry traveling to the past in order to save his mother. According to the official synopsis, Barry’s attempts to change his family’s past will lead him to be trapped in an alternate reality, in which there are no superheroes to turn to. In this reality, General Zod from 2013’s Man of Steel has returned to resume his plans of annihilating the world. The scarlet speedster must enlist two different but familiar allies in the form of a retired Batman and an imprisoned female Kryptonian to help him save the world and undo his mistakes.

The Flash premieres in theaters on June 16.
