Multiple universes collide in the first The Flash poster

The first official poster for Ezra Miller's The Flash comes just days ahead of its trailer's release at Super Bowl LVII on Sunday.

After many delays and controversies, one of the remnants of the DC Extended Universe, The Flash, is finally getting its first trailer at Super Bowl LVII on Sunday. Ahead of the trailer's launch, Warner Bros. Discovery dropped the movie's first poster and it all but confirms that at least one Batman will be in it.

The Flash is part of the four remaining DCEU films that will premiere this year before the cinematic universe is completely dissolved by James Gunn and Peter Safran.

The poster shows Ezra Miller inside what looks like a batcave and the silhouette of a Batwing-like vehicle. Specifically, the one that Michael Keaton used to ride in 1989's Batman by Tim Burton.

Now, does this mean that The Flash will feature at least Keaton's Batman? Maybe, maybe not.

We do know that James Gunn has high praise for The Flash, describing it as one of the best superhero films ever. At the same time, Gunn says The Flash is going to reboot the DCEU and that he nor DC Studios co-CEO, Peter Safran, had anything to do with it. So, if The Flash will premiere as it was originally intended, Keaton's involvement is all but guaranteed, as will that of the others.

With Gunn and Safran running the DCU, The Flash's partial reset could bridge the outgoing DCEU to the incoming movies that will start premiering in 2025 and onwards.

We're curious to find out what kind of reception The Flash will receive in theaters. Gunn isn't the only one who's had high praise for the film. Last year, the early screenings of The Flash likened it to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. It might feel counterproductive to set high expectations for The Flash given Miller's controversies, but it should at least fare better than the DCEU's most recent outings.

With only a few days left before The Flash movie trailer drops at Super Bowl LVII, the world will get a glimpse of what they can look forward to in movie theaters on June 16.

We're still curious if the DCU will adjust depending on how well The Flash performs at the global box office.

Speaking of the DC Extended Universe, two more films from the now-defunct universe are coming this year as well. The first one is Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which comes out on March 17. Afterward, Blue Beetle will hit theaters on August 18 and it will be followed by Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom on December 25.
