The Oscar winners seem eager to work together again.
Zack Snyder is back at it again…
Introducing one of the Dark Knight’s most trusted allies.
Don’t worry, he’s come here to save us all.
Yeah, we’re good with that.
Well, that came out of nowhere.
I’m gonna go ahead and respectfully, disagree.
The connectivity is, at the very least, strong with these standalones.
In case you didn’t already see this coming.
That’s not a bad outlook to have on the situation right now.
Warning: This post will contain spoilers for Suicide Squad.
As most of you are probably already aware, Ben Affleck’s Batman isn’t the only Justice League character that makes an appearance in director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, which officially hit theatres today, backed by a large swarm of negative reviews despite the positive buzz surrounding the film up until this point. In a small, but noticeable appearance near the beginning of the film, Ezra Miller’s Flash is seen briefly taking down Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, giving fans their first real look at the character onscreen ahead of his role in Justice League next year.
As it turns out, like many rumors had suggested as well, the scene was added in near the end of post-production on the movie, and apparently wasn’t actually directed by Ayer, but instead Batman v Superman and Justice League director Zack Snyder.
Ayer revealed Snyder’s involvement while speaking recently with Collider, saying that they had to wait until all of the assets, costume, and actors were in place before they could add the scene, so Snyder ended up shooting and sending the scene over to Ayer while also filming Justice League.
“Flash was always in the movie, we just got lucky because Justice League was happening and they had the uniform, they had the assets, so we were able to get that photography.”
So yes, despite having a scene in the film, Ezra Miller was never actually on the Suicide Squad set it turns out, though it seems like the scene was added in rather seamlessly near the beginning of the film, which admittedly could have been a problem considering the difference in styles between Snyder and Ayer.
Right now though, Miller’s version of The Flash/Barry Allen has more good hype surrounding him than practically any of the other Justice League stars and cast members, so it was either particularly good timing or just DC capitalizing on an open opportunity to give fans another taste of what they can expect from his character here. Now, we only have to wait another year and a few months before we see what he can really do as Barry Allen onscreen.
Suicide Squad is in theatres now.
Well, that’s kinda surprising.

The Oscar-winning actor just likes to stay in shape.
