Here we have now Barry Allen, in this extremely sharp and badass new DCEU Flash costume lurking apparently in entrance of his childhood house. Why is this important? Well, as established in Flashpoint (and in addition in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League) Barry’s mom was mysteriously murdered right here, and his father was despatched to jail for the crime. A criminal offense he says he didn’t commit and in addition one which Barry doesn’t consider he was answerable for, both. And he’s proper, as a result of it was Eobard Thawne, the Reverse-Flash, who had come again from the longer term to homicide the mom of his biggest foe.
Once Barry realizes that he has the flexibility to make use of his velocity to journey by means of time (as we noticed on the conclusion of Zack Snyder’s Justice League), he decides to vary the previous by stopping his mom’s homicide. In doing so, he alters the current, and finds himself in a gift that is barely totally different than the one he is accustomed to.
Now, so far as The Flash film is involved, it’s not clear if Barry is trying to change the previous, or if he’s merely exploring the multiverse in an try and reconnect along with his mom, as we see in this subsequent shot, which seems to point out a tentative Barry sneaking up on an unsuspecting Nora Allen.
The different risk (and the one we’ve seen in each the comics and TV variations of Flashpoint) is that this is Barry waking up after he has modified the previous, and he is stunned to seek out himself in a actuality the place his mom is nonetheless alive. In any case, we’re not too certain of what’s occurring simply but.
Now, it does seem that identical to in the comics, Barry seeks out Bruce Wayne to assist him make sense of his weird scenario. And why wouldn’t he, proper? Ben Affleck’s Batman is a good friend and mentor to Barry in the DCEU, so he ought to go searching for him. Of course, he as a substitute finds Keaton’s older Batman (in the comics he finds Thomas Wayne as Batman, however that’s one other story fully). So does the above picture of Barry and his mom happen on Earth-89, the identical world the place the Burton Batman films happen, or is it after Barry has made one other multiversal hop?
I’m going with the previous, due to the aforementioned first shot in the footage…
