The Flash is Front & Center in New “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” Teaser

Last week we learned what those six chapters are titled that mark the narrative arc of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Now, Snyder has served up a teaser focused on Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen, better known to the world as the Flash.

When Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne recruits Barry Allen to join the Justice League, the youngster is initially reluctant. There’s the possibility (or more accurately, the probability) of death that he’s not so keen about. There’s also the fact he’s been sort of a screwup for a while. Barry’s also confused what Bruce Wayne—who knows is the Batman—considers his superpower. It engenders the best line from the original Justice League—Bruce responds, “I’m rich.”

Yet there’s a lot more to Barry than just speed and immaturity. In Snyder’s souped-up Justice League cut, we’ll get a bit more of Barry’s background, including his speed-of-sound meet-cute with Iris West (Kiersey Clemons), as glimpsed here in the new teaser. The teaser also includes some fatherly advice from his pops, Henry, who’s very much still in prison, as he was in the original Justice League release. There are also some calls to action from Batman himself here.

We’ll find out just how much new material there’s in store for the Flash, and for the rest of the team, very soon. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is premiering on HBO Max on March 18. It’s currently slated at a four-hour runtime, but again, you’ll get those six chapter breaks.
