It is a helmet! That was very clear.

 

 

Seriously, you thought that was hair - or was this a joke?

Batman v Superman’s 3 Biggest WTF Moments Explained

 

He’s yelling at Bruce, and while much of it is hard to hear or understand, it seems that the Flash has either briefly travelled through time here to warn Batman about something, or he’s visiting from another dimension or another Earth -- as Flashes are wont to do. (That bright vortex thingee he’s arrived via is likely either the speed force, the cosmic treadmill, or a boom tube, which is also Darkseid/New Gods tech.) Miller’s costume in this scene seems more futuristic or battle-ready than the traditional Flash suit, and even has a helmet of some kind with a faceplate that opens and closes.

 

It seems like other people figured that out as well. Not just two board members.

The Flash Movie Costume May Be ‘Tech-Based’ To Avoid TV Show Comparisons

 

The-Flash-in-Injustice-Gods-Among-Us.jpg

 

Den of Geek is reporting that in the Flash movie, Allen will be wearing a “tech-based” suit that resembles armor. The intention with this move is to avoid any comparisons to the TV costume, which has won over fans. There will still most likely be viewers debating over which version is “better,” but it is a smart idea to go in a completely different direction as opposed to trying to replicate what’s shown on the TV series.

 

It’s plausible that Allen’s outfit from the Injustice: Gods Among Us video game will serve as the basis for inspiration when designing the movie suit. That costume certainly has a distinct look that fits the rumored description of an armored look. A variation of this would also fit aesthetically into the DC Expanded Universe, as the costumes worn by Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice all look like they’d be suitable for military applications. Arguably, the Flash might look out of place with a different style of costume.

Can they just reboot this?

 

Drop Ezra and bring Grant

 

I support this wholeheartedly.

 

I really don't know how clean a break they can make it between the TV show and movie having two Barry Allens across the DC Multiverse. Even if they are played different (one more basic in costume and skills; the other more hi-tech).

As a TV Flash fan, I have to say this disappoints me so much. While Grant could be a bit bigger to be the Flash, he is a great match for the character.

 

I just can't see this new guy capturing the role of Barry Allen.

 

And the suit is horrendous. Please do not screw this movie up DC.

lol, I'll concede it MAY be a helmet. :)

 

But nobody doubts that's a moustache, with accompanying soul patch AND long flowy hair behind his head.....unless that's all supposed to be some sort of hipster time technology.

Don't forget the man-bun in the leaked Luthor-file convenience store footage. Maybe he uses the man-bun to accelerate fast enough to break the dimensional barrier....it could be a tachyon-bun....and the moustache helps steer or navigate like a rudder.

Looks like Ax is leaving the team...

Hey now! My frustration is born out of love for these characters. I can't imagine you want Ezra to take a huge dump on all our childhoods (to quote those irritated folks that are hating on the all-female Ghostbusters reboot).

 

I'm DC until I push up dirt.....but I can have a reaction to what I perceive as a baaaaaaaad move on their direction, design and vision for these iconic characters.

 

I still can't see how they can get it sooooooo right in television land....(not 1x, but 2x if you include JWS) and then slap the collective faces of every Flash fan on the planet with their horrendous choice for the cinematic universe.

 

How come practically everyone they have to choose for a role in these flicks is a shock or surprise that causes tremendous controversy? I liked Gadot in BvS, and I actually liked Affleck......but how much did they stir up the pot when announced? Why not go with the obvious choice so folks are PUMPED instead of outraged? Look at Eisenberg.....what a disaster.

 

So still on team DC, but a bit gun shy and intellectually injured by their constant pistol whipping of fans.

Just joshing with you :)

 

You make a very good point and to some degree, I'd agree with you. DC have a popular TV Flash, based on the much-loved "regular" Barry Allen... and they've chosen an "alternative" version for the movies. Curious 11.gif Thinking logically, DC must have realised from an early stage how difficult - and expensive - it would be to tie in their TV series with the movies. Hence Barry Alternative. We may not like him, but in the same way we gave Batfleck a chance, we should give this guy a chance. If he sucks, then so be it... and I'll kiss goodbye to ever seeing that Shazam movie ;)

 

Going back to Batfleck, at the time, that was a surprising choice and polarised many. Gal Gadot however, I never could see the surprise. To me, she was a good choice. We were never going to get a 6ft, robust looking, stereotypical Amazonian. C'mon, Xena is SO 90s :/

 

...I can't imagine you want Ezra to take a huge dump on all our childhoods...

I can't imagine I would lol

 

That did make me laugh (thumbs u

 

But you never know, he might be an ok Flash (even if not quite as good as the TV Flash) ... ;)

That is definitely a helmet. And I'm surprised no one's made a joke about Ezra's helmet yet. You guys are slacking (tsk)

Y'all remember the Michael Keaton Batman hate, right?

 

Or the Heath Ledger Joker hate?

 

Or, you know...the Batfleck hate?

 

Why don't we give DC the benefit of the doubt before pre-judging a movie that hasn't even started shooting yet?

 

If anything, the success of the TV version of The Flash should instill confidence that the Powers That Be understand the character and why the TV show works -- so they can make a worthy cinema version.

that's not how it works here. Plenty of DC bashers no matter what is done. Nothing DC will do will succeed based on the standard that Marvel has set.

 

I can separate the two but it seems the rest cannot.

 

I can hear them now

 

ALL HAIL MARVEL!

Sound advice.

A very good point.

There's something here... Can't. Quite. Put. Finger. On. It. ;)

Nice little warmup before the film.

 

Rick Famuyiwa Just Directed The Fastest Man Alive And It Wasn't THE FLASH

 

In a new Gatorade commercial for the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the sports drink company hired Rick Famuyiwa to direct the likes of Paul George, Serena Williams and Usain Bolt - universally recognized as the fastest man alive for a new spot promoting the gold medal hopefuls ahead of the start of the competition.
