What to Expect from The Future of The DC Multiverse and When to Expect It
November 4, 2022: The Flash
After changing creative teams several times, The Flash finally seems to have settled on a direction and is headed to theaters in what should be a great 2022 for Warner Media’s DC characters. Ezra Miller is expected to return for the film and both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck are set to return as their respective Batmen, meaning we’ll see some multiversal high jinks ensue when this one hits theaters!
On October 5, 2020, Warner Bros. announced yet another reshuffling of their upcoming DC release schedule due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This meant that The Flash is now set for release in the United States on November 4, 2022.
Sasha Calle was officially confirmed as Kara Zor-El / Supergirl in February 2021 by director Andy Muschietti himself. The following month it was announced that Billy Crudup, due to scheduling conflicts, would be exiting the movie just as Maribel Verdú was joining the cast as Barry’s mother, Nora Allen. After Crudup’s exit, it didn’t take long to cast a replacement with Ron Livingston (Office Space) stepping in as Barry’s father. On the same day, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Ian Loh were also confirmed to have joined the cast.
