We are only a month away from the release of the flash film, and the production and marketing team saturates the networks with content. Some previews showed exciting things about the movie, such as the existence of two versions of Barry Allen and Michael Keaton’s Batman and the first appearance of Kara Zor El by Sasha Calle. One detail that might have gone unnoticed in The Flash’s first clip was the mention of Henry Cavill’s Superman. The actor is no longer in the ranks of the DCEU since his appearance in the black adam cameo. However, there is a rumor that this could come across as his farewell to the character and a tribute James Gunn and Peter Safan would make to the entertainer.
The Flash’s First Clip Shows Some References to Henry Cavill’s Superman
In the clip, we saw how both versions of Barry Allen, played by Ezra Miller, go to the Batcave after General Zod threatens the world. They first encounter Keaton’s version of Batman, who decides to help them find the Kryptonian locked up in the government facility.
One of the clearest references appears in The Flash’s first clip to Henry Cavill’s Superman when the original Barry Allen comments, “That’s not Clark Kent,” when he meets Kara Zor El. Indicating that the character did not arrive on Earth, as was the case with his cousin, prompting the question, What happened to Superman in this universe?
Several hypotheses exist, such as that he was trapped in the ghost dimension and never arrived on Earth. Another worse theory, although it does agree with one of the comics, is that the character would reach Apokolips, Darkseid’s home planet. In one of the Superman storylines, the villain finds Superman and uses him to attack and bend the Earth. It might be an option in this case.
Other references to the character are his enemy in the movie Man of Steel, General Zod. He lands with his entire fleet on Earth to conquer it, which raises another concern: does General Zod already have the Codex? The military was looking for Henry Cavill’s Superman for this element of the planet Krypton, which contains all the genetic information of the citizens of this world.
With all of that, the alternative is for The Flash to show additional references to Henry Cavill’s Superman. It could be an appearance during the plot, even his defeat at the hands of General Zod. There may even be a post-credits scene with this Cavill character appearing on stage and saying goodbye to the DCEU.
Other Barry Allen Movie Details

The Flash movie will show the first big screen appearance of the Flashpoint phenomenon. This is a change in time caused by the Scarlet speedster’s trip back in time, changing small things but having a big impact.
As in the animated version, the first Flashpoint is triggered by Barry Allen trying to save his mother. In the movie, it would be like an alternate reality, given that there will be two Barry Allens, one with speedster powers and the other an ordinary boy with a normal life with his family. Another similar fact is the disaster Flash creates by time traveling, jeopardizing the existence of the planet.
In the film, we can notice Ezra Miller, who plays the two versions of Barry Allen. The Flash will also bring Sasha Calle as Kara Zor El or Supergirl, replacing Henry Cavill’s Superman. Similarly, there will be two versions of Batman, the first from Ben Affleck saying goodbye to the DCEU and the Michael Keaton edition.
This production will be in theaters on June 16, 2023, then on the new streaming platform, MAX.
