Director Andy Muschietti has taken to social media to share another tease for the movie. We previously got a close-up shot of the logo on Michael Keaton’s Batsuit ahead of his return as Batman, this one highlights the logo the Scarlet Speedster will be wearing.

The detail here is incredible, and the reveal points to the conclusion this will look utterly phenomenal on screen, but one can wonder if the film will stick to the aesthetic established from the Zack Synder’s cut of Justice League, which released March 18, 2021 on HBO Max earlier this year, to critical and generally positive reception. 

The Flash will be directed by Muschietti, who previously directed “Mama,” “It” and “It: Chapter Two,” and was written by Christina Hodson, who worked with DC before on “Birds of Prey.”

As of now, the film is being coined to touch upon the “Flashpoint” comic book series, which will see the emergence of the multiverse, and thus elaborate on Barry Allen time traveling and exploring other timelines. 

The image showed the iconic gold lightning bolt on a background of red lines resembling a maze-esque pattern if you notice it closely. The logo is identical to the one previously revealed by Muschietti back in April, when he took to social media to confirm filming had begun.

Before this latest reveal from the film, Muschietti did show off a Bat-suit of the past, which fans noticed had blood spatter across the iconic yellow and black logo from the second suit Keaton wore during the events of “Batman Returns” (1992). 

In addition to Muschietti dropping subtle breadcrumbs from the set while filming in London, “The Flash” (2022) activated social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram. It revealed new banners and chairs for both Barry Allen and Bruce Wayne.

The DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has been releasing updates of their upcoming films. Recently, James Wan revealed the title of the “Aquaman sequel to be “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” while David F. Sandberg also released a quick look at Zachary Levi’s outfit in “Shazam! Fury of the Gods.” Dwayne Johnson has been promoting the “Black Adam” film, which is slated for release July 29, 2022. 

“The Flash” will not only feature Ben Affleck as Batman but will see the return of Michael Keaton as Batman for the first time since 1992’s “Batman Returns.” The film will also star Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Barry’s mother in the DCEU, and Ron Livingston, who will be replacing Billy Crudup due to scheduling conflicts as Barry’s father in the DCEU. 

“The Flash” is set to be released on Nov. 4, 2022.
