The Flash Character Posters Emerge From The Speed Force!
The Flash, Supergirl, and Michael Keaton’s Batman feature on the first character posters from DC’s Flashpoint bonanza!
After blowing our minds with the sensational new trailer for The Flash, Warner Bros. has struck again! Before the dust could even settle on the trailer, and the jaw-dropping TV spot, the studio has dropped three new character posters from the upcoming DC bonanza. And as expected, Michael Keaton’s return as Batman leads the charge with a healthy dose of thrust from the Batmobile.
What’s more, the studio has also shared the synopsis for Andy Muschietti’s movie and it reveals a ton of new information. Coaxing Batman out of retirement, all metahumans eradicated, and re-setting the multiverse are all mentioned in the plot. And it all points to a monumental adventure with some of the biggest pillars of the DC Universe. But don’t take my word for it. Slide down the Batpoles and explore the glossy one-sheets and read on for the full synopsis.
Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?
