Batman saves The Flash in a new spot for the Justice League movie!
“Batman still really resonates because on the one hand he’s a Super Hero, but on the other hand he is just like us,” Affleck stated in the Justice League production notes released by WB . “He feels vulnerable; he bleeds if you cut him. He is a real person on the inside and yet he is ‘super.’ There are all kinds of contradictions inherent in that, which makes for interesting storytelling.” The Batman comics, he continues, “are mystery stories at their root. Mysteries of the self, of character and identity, as well as the mystery that man is, and always will remain, to a certain extent, to himself.”
Ezra Miller, who plays the dual role, is himself a longtime fan of the comics, the character, and the physics behind him. “The Flash is a scientist in the sense that a scientist studies the natural order of things, makes observations and performs experiments,” Miller explains in the Justice League production notes as well. “But Barry’s inherently interested in quantum mechanics because he’s literally running into them.When we first meet Barry in the film,” Miller continues, “he’s just awakening to his powers. He hasn’t really tested them out, he’s not yet breached the event horizon, as it were. But he’s starting to feel there’s an opportunity waiting for him.”
Justice League has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder, with the story by Chris Terrio and Zack Snyder, the screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
