AceShowbiz - Another sneak peek at the long-awaiting "The Flash" movie has been officially released. Making its way out online, the new photo gives first look at Sasha Calle's Supergirl costume in the upcoming standalone pic.
On Friday, June 18, both the film's director Andy Muschietti and actress Calle took to their respective social media accounts to share a glimpse of the female superhero's suit. Posting it on his Instagram page, the filmmaker simply tagged "The Flash" movie's official Instagram account, while Calle captioned it, "Supergirl. X," on her own post.
The photo gives a close-up look at the Supergirl logo on the chest area. Dominated in red and blue with a little bit of yellow to fill in the "S" symbol, the costume bears a resemblance to Henry Cavill's Superman costume, but it has its own style with the red featured on the top.
Calle was officially announced as part of the movie's cast in February. "I saw more than four hundred auditions. The U.S., Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia. The talent pool was truly amazing and it was very hard to make a decision, but we finally found an actress who was destined to play this role," Muschietti said of choosing Calle, who will be the first Latina to star as the iconic character, to take on the role.
Prior to sharing the Supergirl costume photo, Muschietti unveiled the first glimpse of The Flash's new costume in the movie. In similar fashion, the image, gave a close-up look at the superhero's lightning insignia on Barry Allen's chest, which is different from the one on Barry's suit during his debut in "Justice League". The new Flash costume also seems to be wired with circuitry that is centralized around the lightning insignia on his chest.
Muschietti has also teased Batman's return in The Flash movie by offering a look at Michael Keaton's Batman suit. In the image posted last week, the Gotham superhero's logo is stained with blood.
"The Flash" is currently in production with the script provided by Christina Hodson. Plot details are kept under wraps, but the movie will reportedly see Barry traveling back in time to prevent his mother's murder, which brings unintentional consequences to his timeline.
In addition of Keaton's Batman, the solo movie is said to feature Ben Affleck's version of the Caped Crusader. Ezra Miller reprises his role as The Flash/Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons is cast as Barry's love interest Iris West, with Maribel Verdu and Ron Livingston starring as Barry's mother and father respectively.
"The Flash" movie is due in theaters on November 4, 2022.
