The Flash begins production : Keaton officially returning as Batman; Logo revealed

An exciting day for comic book movie fans with Warner Bros announcing the official kickoff on “The Flash”, director Andy Muschietti’s film adaptation of the DC comics classic. Ezra Miller makes out with the speed force on this one, co-starring alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, and Maribel Verdu and Ron Livingston as the title character’s parents. Ben Affleck is confirmed to appear as Batman/Bruce Wayne while Michael Keaton – who had us worrying a couple of weeks ago that Covid may have squished the studio’s plans to have him reprise the role – is officially a lock as the ’89 Batman, donning the cape for the first time since Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns” in 1992.

The ‘flashy’ new logo for the film was also unveiled, along with some nifty music.

According to THR, Benjamin Wallfisch, having previously scored ”Shazam!'” for the studio, has been retained to do the music for this offering.

“The Flash” is currently scheduled for release on November 4, 2022.
