As the lucky souls who survived watching Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Martha may recall, a small part of the plot that had little bearing on anything else involved Wonder Woman trying to steal a file from Lex Luthor’s computer system. She wanted the file because it contained a photo of her and the supporting cast from the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, but in addition to that brief Chris Pine cameo, it also included short video clips of three other future members of the Justice League: Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Like Wonder Woman, all three of those guys will be getting their own solo movies eventually, but the Flash’s solo movie might not be as solo as you’d expect.
In an interview with Forbes (via Collider) in which she discussed how these various DC movies can tell different kinds of stories, producer Deborah Snyder dropped this little line about the Flash movie:
As you can imagine, when we get to the Flash movie, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher—who plays Cyborg—are kind of our youngest characters, and they have a really nice camaraderie with each other. Ezra is super funny, so the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of them.
Granted, she could’ve misspoken, but the fact that she brings up Fisher’s Cyborg in relation to both Miller’s Flash and the Flash movie really makes it sound like the two heroes will be teaming up for director Seth Grahame-Smith’s big-screen take on the Scarlet Speedster. The two characters are obviously going to meet up in Zack Snyder’s Justice League—which is set to come out before The Flash—but that doesn’t seem to be what Deborah Snyder is referring to. Whatever happens, though, at least we know that the Flash movie is continuing the tradition established by Suicide Squad and Aquaman by declaring that it will be “funny.” Not that Batman V Superman wasn’t funny, of course, it’s just that they seem to be going for more of a “funny on purpose” thing with these movies.
