THE FLASH TV Series Reportedly Airs A Shocking Dialogue Mistake In Brazilian Dub
The Flash recently finished airing its Armageddon crossover. For Brazilian fans, though, the Portuguese dub of the special reportedly featured a surprising dialogue insult aimed at the show's writing.
The Flash TV series recently closed out another ambitious Arrowverse crossover: Armageddon. The five-episode special pitted Barry Allen against the alien Despero (Tony Curran), a confrontation that led the Scarlet Speedster to cross paths with numerous heroes from The CW's superhero franchise, including Batwoman, Sentinel (Supergirl's Chyler Leigh), Atom and Black Lightning.
The special aired its last chapter on December 14, but details of the episode recently made their way onto social media thanks to a supposed dialogue mistake from its Brazilian dubbing, which criticized the series' dialogue quality (via Comicbook.com).
As a clip shared online from Episode 1 of Season 8 shows, during Flash's first confrontation with Despero, a person can seemingly be heard saying, "Ohla, que diálogo merda," (at the 0:05 mark) which (roughly) translates to, "Look, what a shit dialogue":
It's important to note that a Twitter user commented on the veracity of this footage, claiming it was faked. The Flash has been criticized for its dialogue throughout its eight-season run, so it's not unreasonable to suggest that someone could have edited this to strengthen this complaint.
With that said, this could also very well be real, and if so, It's also unclear how a piece of dialogue like this could have slipped into the episode's final edit.
The Flash Season 8 will return with new episodes on March 9, 2022 on The CW.
