Batman is a large a part of “The Flash” — so large, actually, that Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) even spends the movie’s post-credits scene speaking concerning the Caped Crusader’s multiversal nature. This dialogue between Barry and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) is solely some of the movie’s many moments that discover alternate-universe Bruce Waynes and remind the viewer simply how deeply other all of them are.
The genius of “The Flash” is that it manages to introduce the concept that “extra Batmen” is a good suggestion as a substitute of a deeply complicated one. With its future- and past-altering “spaghetti” take at the Multiverse, the movie necessarily pats the viewer at the again and tells them, “Buckle up — after this, the rest can occur.” Because it so closely makes use of the nature of Batman to illustrate this level, “The Flash” is largely each a movie about Barry Allen’s time-bending adventures and a two-and-a-half-hour finding out video about the entire explanation why there will also be lots of Batmen one day. Because of this, the DCU now has an umbrella cause of each time it appears like bringing a brand new Batman or 3 within the combine: simply invoke time-traveling shenanigans and change timelines.
Oh, and as an advantage, the movie in any case lets in Affleck (who is been soaring through the door for what turns out like an eternity) a sleek go out from the DC movie universe through casually writing him out of life and changing him with George Clooney. OK, a relatively sleek go out.
