After years of grassroots campaign from fans alongside a well-documented behind-the-scenes debacle, Zack Snyder's Justice League will finally debut on HBO Max. The arrival of the much-anticipated director's cut has been teased for a long time, and it's only a matter of time before it graces the small screen.
As the premiere inches closer, the marketing for the Snyder Cut has ramped up in recent weeks, with the director sharing numerous bits of information about the upcoming four-hour long cut. After the official trailer was unveiled, a new promotional approach was launched in the form of character-focused teasers.
So far, three teasers featuring Superman, Batman, and Aquaman have already been released, and it was confirmed by Snyder that all the members of the League will receive their own set of footage. Now, another one has surfaced for the DCEU’s premier speedster.
THE FLASH SHINES IN NEW SNYDER CUT TRAILER
Zack Snyder officially released a new trailer for his Justice League, showcasing a fresh look at Ezra Miller's Barry Allen.
Several lines of dialogue from Bruce Wayne and Henry Allen was included in the trailer. Here's the full breakdown.
Henry Allen: "I want you to listen to me, Barry because I mean this."
Bruce Wayne: "I'm putting together a team of people with special abilities."
Henry: "You can be whatever you want to be. I can't sit here and watch you run in place."
Bruce Wayne: "You'll have to run faster than you've ever attempted."
Henry: "You're a brilliant man. Absolute best of the best."
Barry Allen: "Make your own future. Make your own past. It's all right now."
Alongside the reveal, a brand-new poster featuring the Scarlet Speedster was also unveiled.
THE FLASH ENTERS THE SPEED FORCE
This latest teaser provides more clues about the nature of Barry Allen's speed in the DCEU, and the slow-mo effect clearly helped in terms of making the character stand out from previous iterations of the character. It was also fitting that Kiersey Clemons' Iris West is included in this new footage, potentially establishing the core dynamic between the future couple from the get-go.
One of the fascinating things from the power set of The Flash is time-travel, and it looks like this ability will be pushed to the forefront in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Based on this teaser, Barry can be seen breaking the sound barrier to enter the Speed Force in the team's final stand against Steppenwolf, seemingly hinting that something went wrong.
It was previously teased by Snyder that The Flash will use his speed to travel back in time to fix something, and it's pretty evident that this will happen in the final battle of the film.
Given that Barry is still at the exploration stage of his powers, the combined shock and excitement in entering the Speed Force will likely be felt by the hero. However, the sheer determination of the speedster is apparent in the trailer, and it will create an added boost of inspiration to set things right.
There's also a chance that this isn't the only scene where time-travel will be involved, especially after the confirmation that the Knightmare timeline will have an extended sequence. It's possible that the film will show Barry's future self traveling through time, which could directly connect to what was presented in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where Bruce met the Knightmare version of the character for a brief encounter.
Whatever the case, Barry is an integral part of Zack Snyder's Justice League and the DCEU's future, and it will be interesting to find out how the character will evolve in the coming years.
