Watch out for the Dark Flash!
While the flash screening for critics and theater exhibitors at CinemaCon last week, everyone is free to speculate about its story and surprises until its June 16 release. That’s why fans are buzzing over a teaser trailer for the Japanese market that seems to reveal the movie’s true villain.
the Japaneses Flash The trailer features a shot of Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen – one of them anyway – wearing a black spiked suit. This appears to identify the identity of “Dark Flash”, a reimagined version of the comic book specter known as “Black Flash”. Merchandise for the film includes Dark Flash figures, which are in effect a black version of The Flash with sharp textures.
The same shot appears smoothed out in the US trailer. DC fans could have their own Spider-Man: No Coming Home moment here, when the foreign language trailers of No coming home barely concealed the inclusion of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
But who is Dark Flash? And what purpose could they have in the flash?
Who is Dark Flash?
Dark Flash is the DC film version of Black Flash, from the comic books. Less of a supervillain and more of a macabre entity, the Black Flash is essentially the Grim Reaper for DC speedsters.
When an individual has tapped into the Speed Force that powers characters like the Flash reaches its end, the Black Flash comes to bring them back to the Speed Force, where they become one with the power source. It was created by Grant Morrison, Mark Millar and Ron Wagner, and debuted in the flash #138.
There is no definitive origin for Black Flash. They are simply an extension of the Speed Force as an avatar for its darker nature. Importantly, two men “became” Black Flash: Barry Allen (in The Flash: Rebirth) and Eobard Thawne, aka Reverse-Flash, who was transformed into Black Flash upon acquiring the Black Lantern zombie ring during the events of darkest night.
What does Dark Flash mean to the flash?
If we had to guess, Dark Flash could be an amalgamation of all versions of Black Flash in the comics, serving as the Speed Force avatar collecting doomed speedsters.
It could also be Barry Allen. Given that the flash is set to freely adapt another great comic book story – the 2011 series Breaking pointin which Barry travels back in time to alter his own origin story and create an all-new DC Universe – Barry might find “himself” in this new timeline, and This Flash could go rogue to become Dark Flash and kill Barry.
Fans won’t have to wait long for answers, because the flash has some serious pre-release buzz that may or may not overshadow the legal controversies surrounding its lead. That way it’s almost appropriate the flash stars Ezra Miller battling against a worse version of themselves.
the flash will hit theaters on June 16.
