One of the great things we know about the flash is that it will spotlight Michael Keaton as Batman for the first time he’s donning the cape and cowl since 1992 Return of Batman. But he’s not the only actor to play the Caped Crusader in this next dc movie, as Ben Affleck’s Batman will also team up with Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen. Well, when this version of Bruce Wayne returns to the big screen, one of his other key allies will accompany him, as the new international trailer for the flash revealed that Jeremy Irons is reprising Alfred Pennyworth.
Like Affleck, Irons made his DC Extended Universe debut in 2016. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justicefollowed by his participation in the two versions of Justice League. From the flash should be Affleck’s last time playing Batman (not to mention he has no interest in directing a DC movie), it’s good that Alfred d’Irons goes with him for this last round, although since he’s shown in the Batcave, I’m skeptical that Irons and Affleck crossed paths again during the production. Either way, check out the quick taste we have of Batman’s trusted butler and father figure in the flash international trailer originally shared by The Flash movie news.
UPDATE: Warner Bros. has officially released this final trailer for the flashwhich you can watch below.
Given that Michael Gough, who played Alfred Pennyworth in Michael Keaton’s Batman, died in 2011, it naturally necessitated the death of his version of the character. So when the lead version of Barry Allen meets Bruce Wayne in the flash, he will live alone at Wayne Manor. Ben Affleck’s Batman, on the other hand, still has Jeremy Irons’ Alfred in his life, as we see him coordinating communication between Barry and Bruce, no doubt for the mission we’ll see together at the start of the film. Irons is the second actor to currently play Alfred in live-action, with Andy Serkis taking the role in the Batman universe.
The rest of this trailer for the flash covers the beats that were shown in previous previews of how Barry travels back in time to save his mother, only to find himself in a reality where she is alive, but there are no meta-humans. When Michael Shannon’s General Zod arrives on Earth to achieve his same goal from Steel manBarry will have to team up with his doppelganger, Michael Michael Keaton’s Batman and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl to thwart the Kryptonian invaders, though it will be complicated by the emergence of another villain that fans believe they have already identified.
The events of the flash will reset DCEU continuity and usher in the era of the DC Universe, which will include a new Batman brought in to lead The brave and the daring. Early reception for Scarlet Speedster’s film was largely positiveincluding author Stephen King saying he “loved it”.
