Welcome, trivia enthusiasts, to a multiverse of fun facts! We’re diving headfirst into The Flash 2023 movie. The flick is like a superhero sampler platter, offering an array of cameos from DC movie history. From the 1950s Superman TV series to the ’60s Batman show and the 1970s and ’80s Superman movies, it’s a veritable feast of nostalgia.
1. Superman Trio: A Cape for Every Era
In a surprising twist, “The Flash” features not one, not two, but three Supermen! The real shock is that Nicolas Cage finally gets to don the cape and tights, a full 25 years after being cast in Tim Burton’s scrapped “Superman Lives” project. Talk about delayed gratification! Then there’s George Reeves, the 1950s TV Superman, who makes a posthumous cameo through digitally inserted black-and-white footage. Christopher Reeve’s Superman is also featured in the movie, but only briefly, in a scene where Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) sees glimpses of different universes in the multiverse, including one where Reeve’s Superman and Helen Slater’s Supergirl fly together (using CGI and archival footage).
And let’s not forget Sasha Calle’s Supergirl’s first appearance in the DC Extended Universe.
2. Batmen Galore: The More, The Merrier
If you thought four Supermen were impressive, hold onto your bat hats because we’ve got four Batmen! George Clooney returns in the final scenes, leaving Barry Allen (and us) utterly gobsmacked. Michael Keaton also swings back into action, reprising his role as Batman and joining the climactic battle scene. Not to mention Ben Affleck’s role in the film. Talk about a bat bait and switch!
3. Justice League Roll Call: From Aquaman to Wonder Woman
The movie doesn’t stop at Batmen and Supermen. Oh no, we’ve got a full Justice League roll call! Aquaman (Jason Momoa) makes a splash in a post-credits scene, proving that even superheroes can’t hold their liquor. And Gal Gadot lassos-in some laughs in her final appearance as Wonder Woman.
