The 25-year-old actor shared the personal message to his social media accounts on Friday.
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
It’s little secret that the DC Extended Universe, the Warner Bros-owned comic company’s attempt at a rival to the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe, is struggling. Whilst its three existing movies – 2013’s ‘Man of Steel,’ and 2016’s ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ – all performed well at the box office, none of them have won over audiences or critics the way Marvel have. This means that, at present, the only DC movie lined up for release in 2018 is ‘Aquaman.’ However, it has emerged that the studio are contemplating filling the gap left by ‘The Batman’ by accelerating the development process on one of their planned films.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
The central issue, to my mind, was the rather convoluted reveal that ‘Jay Garrick’, as we knew him, was in fact Zoom the entire series. It would also have provided Candice Patton with some much needed screentime, bringing Iris much closer to the centre of the program, and further developing the character.
Comic book movies may have become the dominant form of blockbuster entertainment in cinemas worldwide, but taking super-powered characters from the printed page to the big screen isn’t always as neat and tidy a process as film studios might like.
It happened on Wonder Woman and now it’s happening on The Flash . After Rick Famuyiwa stepped away from duties on Warner Bros.’ D.C. Comics hopeful $100M tentpole The Flash , word comes that the entire picture will be moved from its start date. A similar thing happened last year when Michelle MacLaren left Wonder Woman over creative differences. The studio then pounced on Patty Jenkins to fulfill their vision of a more character-driven film and less Braveheart. Famuyiwa…
Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s The Flash movie has hit another big speed bump: sources tell Variety that director Rick Famuyiwa has left the project.
Wally West is known to many as being the secret identity of the Flash’s similarly speedy sidekick, “Kid Flash”. In this situation, it worked – though both Oliver and Roy had essentially identical skillsets, neither really felt redundant.
‘The Flash’ director Rick Famuyiwa has posted a cryptic message on social media potentially hinting that Ray Fisher’s Cyborg will appear in the upcoming movie. Both characters will make their full debuts in next year’s 'Justice League’ before Ezra Miller leads his first solo film as the Scarlet Speedster in 2018. On Twitter Famuyiwa posted a picture of the latest draft of the film’s script, with the feet of two action figures in the background.
It looks as though Cyborg got an upgrade ahead of ‘Justice League’. At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, we got our first glimpse of ‘Justice League’ heroes Cyborg and The Flash in their all new costumes. Ironhead Studios - the artists behind DC’s ‘Batman V Superman’ costumes - has revealed some behind-the-scenes work for both Cyborg and The Flash in this awesome new picture.
With ‘The Flash’ still a couple of years away the casting is gradually beginning to take shape. Billy Crudup - yes, the guy who played Dr. Manhattan in ‘Watchmen’ - will play the pops of hero Barry Allen (aka The Flash), according to Variety. It reunites Crudup with the DC cinematic world after starring as one of the main characters in the Zack Snyder-directed ‘Watchmen’ back in 2009.
After a successful first season CBS, Supergirl is set to begin airing on the CW channel, alongside The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. Ultimately, this is probably for the best; the show will now be far more economic to produce, in terms of costs and efficiency, and it’ll be able to tie into its sister shows far more easily. Indeed, we’ve already had two crossovers confirmed; one four-night event, incorporating each show and taking place around November, as well as a later musical crossover between The Flash and Supergirl. ...
Warner Bros. and DC may be struggling to secure positive reviews for their movies (notably recent release ‘Suicide Squad’), but it hasn’t deterred them from starting work on a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel. 2013 saw Henry Cavill don the red and blue suit for the first time but any news on a follow-up has been pretty quiet until now. Instead, the focus was on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, which was a long and gruelling process alongside new Batman Ben Affleck.
Small wonder, then, that Snyder had some degree of influence on the third DCEU film, even with David Ayer on board as writer and director – but it seems his fingerprints got a little deeper into the work than we might have anticipated. It had already been revealed that Ezra Miller would cameo in ‘Suicide Squad’ as The Flash – and Ayer tells Collider that Snyder was the director on that one particular scene.
Where ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ failed, ‘Suicide Squad’ is expected to succeed, as its release at the start of August is set to truly kick-start the DC Extended Universe. To do just that it’s already been confirmed that ‘Suicide Squad’ will include an appearance from Batman, but it’s now been heavly suggested that the blockbuster might feature another member of the ‘Justice League’, too. Because it’s been speculated that Ezra Miller’s the Flash/Barry Allen will make his second appearance in the DCU in ‘Suicide Squad’, following on from his teeny tiny cameo in ‘Batman V Superman’.
According to Variety, ‘Dope’ star Kiersey Clemons has been cast as iconic comic book character Iris West in the upcoming film adaptation of ‘The Flash’. “Kiersey Clemons has closed a deal to star opposite Ezra Miller in ‘The Flash’ movie,” they revealed.
Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow. Yahoo TV got an early look at action figures based on The CW's heroes and more. Click through this slideshow for a sneak peek.
Three contenders have been named for the female lead in Warner Bros/DC’s ‘The Flash,’ and British pop star Rita Ora is one of them. The solo movie is set to be directed by Rick Famuyiwa, director of 'Dope’ - and according to Variety, Famuyiwa’s favourite for the part is his 'Dope’ actress Kiersey Clemons. It has not yet been confirmed who the female lead in 'The Flash’ actually is (Warner Bros have confirmed neither the casting reports nor the character’s identity), but word is that the character will be Iris West, reporter for Central City’s Picture News and love interest of The Flash’s alter ego Barry Allen.
The “Ultimate Edition” R-rated home release of ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ has provided fans with their best look yet at the costumes that’ll be worn in 2017’s 'Justice League’. While still just a concept image, it offers the best look yet at the costumes we’ve yet to see in real life - those of Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. The costumes of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman have already been released ahead of 'Batman v Superman’ and don’t appear to have changed all that much.
