Zack Snyder’s much-hyped/much-fretted about superhero smackdown Batman v Superman looms on the horizon and while we’re excited to watch the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel duke it out for DC, we can’t blame you if your wandering eyes want to know about other notables in the picture. After all, Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman is already garnering raves and there’s a special assortment of cameo appearances (like Jason Momoa as Aquaman) that inspires a bit of drool as well. So let’s get to some news on one of the bigger pop-ins promised for this Snyder joint: An appearance from The Flash.
Word that we’d get “a glimpse” of The Fastest Man Alive tumbled out back in 2015, but now there’s a little more flesh on the bones of what to expect from Barry Allen in Batman v Superman. Entertainment Weekly has provided a wealth of information on what’s coming up in the movie (plus Batfleck and Superman on their own covers) and the juiciest bit of info is how The Flash will make his mark on the movie. Beware! The term “dream sequence” makes an appearance:
The film is laced with dream sequences for both Batman and Superman that hint at dangers to come – including the possible appearance of DC’s galactic ultra-villain Darkseid. The Flash (played by Miller) appears in one such nightmare of Bruce Wayne’s, delivering a cryptic message to the Dark Knight.
Fans will have to debate whether it was really a dream, or maybe the kinetic hero breaking through time-space to deliver a warning. Synder calls this “a giant Easter egg” that he hopes will spawn plenty of online theories. “We had such a straightforward narrative, on one hand, I wanted this other layer of the movie to be complicated and bizarre,” he says.
