The Flash will be exploring the famous comic book storyline Flashpoint, in which Barry Allen attempts to stop his mother's murder when he was a child, but inadvertently creates a new reality where he is no longer a superhero. However, it seems like this live-action adaptation will change quite a bit, such as Reverse-Flash no longer being the villain.
Another difference is that it seems likely Barry has instead traveled to a whole new universe instead of creating one like the original comic.
However, in what appears to be a belated celebration of Batman Day, Muschietti has posted a vandalized emblem that will seemingly appear in the film.
The Flash Vandalized Michael Keaton's Batman Suit
The Flash director Andy Muschietti posted another superhero emblem to his Instagram account, but an unconventional one.
The photo shows Michael Keaton's Batman suit and emblem, but spray painted red with a crude yellow lightning bolt tagged onto it, emulating the one adorned by The Flash.
The Flash's Costume Destroyed On Universal Entry?
Fans already know that Barry Allen will be getting a new costume in The Flash, but there might be an in-universe explanation for the change. Strictly a theory, but the film may start with The Flash still wearing the suit he wore in Justice League.
Perhaps Barry Allen attempts to travel back in time to save his mother, but travels to another universe instead. Unfortunately, while the suit may survive traveling through time, as it did in Zack Snyder's Justice League, it might not be built for jumping whole realities.
Before Keaton's Batman may then be required to make him a new one, forcing him to temporarily wear an extra Batman suit from Mr. Wayne while adding his own bit of flair to it.
Fans will know the context of this odd costume when they see The Flash in theaters on November 4, 2022.
