The upcoming Flash movie is going to be an amalgamation of multiple alternate timelines of the DC Universe so far. So if you have not watched all DC movies in detail, chances are you might miss certain moments within the movie. Many movies in the DC Universe are essential to watch before you watch the new Flash movie.
As revealed by ExpressVPN, The Fash has undergone multiple changes after his first introduction to DC comics in 1940. Surprisingly, the character was completely reintroduced in 1956 with a new look and backstory. This change was primarily done to make the superhero more iconic so that DC comics could regain their lost popularity.
Everything That You Need To Know About The New Flash Movie
The new Flash movie will be available in theatres by June 16, 2023. The movie’s premiere will be held on June 12th and will be available online by fall 2023. The Flash will present Barry Allen in a new atmosphere as he will use his speed to travel back in time in an attempt to save his mother. However, this attempt of his will leave behind ripple effects and affect the future of the world.
Barry Allen will eventually be stuck in a new future with General Zod and no heroes that he knows of. So, now it will fall on his shoulders to save the world and look for the DC heroes so that he can get some help from them. Will the Flash be able to defeat General Zod? What will his actions do to the multiverse? You can find these answers once the movie is released, but here are some movies you should watch before The Flash to better understand the movie.
Here’s the list of all DC movies you should watch before watching The Flash. Watching these movies will make you better understand the upcoming movie and characters and might also help you understand why certain things happened.
- Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021)
- Superman: Red Son (2020)
- Justice League (2017)
- Wonder Woman (2017)
- Suicide Squad (2016)
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
- Man of Steel (2013)
- Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013)
- Batman Returns (1992)
- Batman (1989)
Most of the movies mentioned above contain superheroes from the Justice League before it existed or while it was being formed. It is also notable that certain movies like Suicide Squad, Justice League, and The Flashpoint Paradox are also important to watch as they have The Flash in these movies.
Based on the premise of the upcoming Flash movie, the plot is heavily based on the Flashpoint Arc in the comics, so The Flashpoint Paradox is the movie that you should for sure not miss out on other than Zack Snyder’s Justice League as the upcoming Flash movie is somewhat of a continuation from that movie only.
These were some DC movies that you should stream before you go to watch the upcoming Flash movie to avoid confusion. The DC Universe has a huge range of movies, and almost all are somehow connected. The upcoming Flash will act as a way for all the previous timelines in the DC Universe to make sense, and the movie will also create a way for the DC Universe to explore the concept of the multiverse in their future movies.
