“The Flash” Director Andy Muschietti Reveals Barry Allen’s New Logo

The Flash director Andy Muschietti knows how to build intrigue. Muschietti built all sorts of intrigue—and horror, and delight—with his two-part epic It and It: Chapter 2, and now he’s at the reigns of another big Warner Bros. film, trading in killer clowns for speedy superheroes. Muschietti took to Instagram to reveal the new logo for Barry Allen (Ezra Miller)’s super suit.

The image shows the Flash’s iconic gold lightning bolt, which is located on the center of Barry’s chest in what appears to be an updated costume. This reveal comes after Muschietti teased the return of Michael Keaton’s Batman, in a post that showed Batman’s iconic logo covered in blood. While, sure, these Instagram posts aren’t all that revealing, they’re something, and something is better than nothing for a film that’s been in the works for a very, very long time.

The Flash, written by Birds of Prey and Bumblebee scribe Christina Hodson, is influenced by the “Flashpoint” comic book series and will feature Barry Allen traveling back in time. This is how he ends up coming into contact with Keaton’s Bruce Wayne on a parallel timeline (the last time we saw Keaton in cape and cowl was in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992), so Allen will be the only person in history (we think) to have two Batmans in his life—Ben Affleck’s, from Batman v. Superman and Justice League, and Keaton’s version. (Affleck will also appear in the film.)

Joining Miller, Keaton, and Affleck are a host of new faces, including Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen. The Flash is set to zoom into theaters on November 4, 2022. Check out the logo below:
