To all the non-DC fans out there, Zack Snyder is the man who saved DC with his take on the film, “Justice League” which gave viewers a more realistic and a more faithful adaptation of the comic book and overall gave the franchise darker and richer storylines. It is this adaptation that can also be seen as the reason for DC’s experimentation with the noir genre as we can see with Robert Pattinson’s Batman .
The New Barry Allen
Now Andres Muschietti, known for his work in the IT franchise, has taken over the reigns to direct Ezra Miller’s reprisal of the scarlet speedster in the recently released film “The Flash” where the story revolves around Barry Allen as he creates “Flashpoint” an alternate timeline which he created by travelling back in time to change the past. The film stars Ezra Miller, Sasha Calle as Supergirl and the man who played a hero in DC and a villain in the MCU, Michael Keaton who will bring his unforgettable version of Batman back to screens after nearly 30 years.
But even with this cast which is a mix of such unforgettable characters and actors, and a script that ventures into time travel, the film has performed well below projections with 55 million in it opening weekend.
What’s Next For DC?
Snyder himself says he has not seen it but has continued to talk to Miller throughout the production of the film and while he is not directly involved with this film, the lasting impact he left in the DC universe is unforgettable and even with all the film offers, Snyder’s close contact with the cast even after he has not been involved in the film could mean that Zack Snyder and his version of Flash is on the horizon and it is evident that his take on the character, if it happens, will not disappoint.
