THE FLASH Rumored To Completely "Erase" The SnyderVerse And Form A New Justice League
It's been a while since we had a juicy DCEU rumor, so let's start the new year off with some possible details relating to Andy Muschietti's upcoming The Flash movie. Snyder fans may not be pleased!
Andy Muschietti's The Flash wrapped production back in October, and much like similar Multiverse-themed adventure Spider-Man: No Way Home prior to its release, rumors relating to the movie continue to swirl online.
These latest details come our way via @MyTimeToShineH, who has been sharing quite a few intriguing scoops of late and seems to be fairly well regarded as an insider. He claims to have first-hand knowledge that The Flash will "erase every movie Zack Snyder has done," pretty much serving as a reset for the DCEU. Apparently, both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will be officially done after this film, with Sasha Calle's Supergirl taking over for Superman, Michael Keaton serving as Batman, and Batgirl (Leslie Grace) set to inherit the mantle after her solo HBO Max feature.
In addition, The Flash (Ezra Miller) is said to form a new Justice League alongside Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Shazam (Zachary Levi) at the end of the movie.
Just like any of these unsubstantiated rumors that pop up online, it's important to take these details with a healthy dose of scepticism - although it might be worth noting that a lot of this does line up with previous reports that did the rounds back when The Flash was in the early stages of development. We already know Warner Bros. is eager to move away from the "SnyderVerse" era following the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League, so that part wouldn't exactly be major surprise. This is the first we've heard of a new League with these particular members, however.
Muschietti has not weighed in, but Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg did Tweet the following in response to a fan.
I mean, I haven’t watched (or read the script of) The Flash so I guess anything could happen as far as I know.— David F. Sandberg (@ponysmasher) January 1, 2022
