Flash Movie Editor reveals why DC Film is “Worth the Wait”.

After years of work The Lightning The film is currently on track for release next year and bringing the journey of DC’s Scarlet Speedster to the big screen. Between the return of Michael Keaton’s version of Bruce Wayne/Batman and the film’s overall place in the ever-evolving DC Universe, there was already a lot of anticipation and speculation surrounding the film. A brief teaser trailer during last year’s DC FanDome teased exactly what the film has to offer, including revealing that franchise star Ezra Miller will play two incarnations of Barry Allen in the film – and according to the film’s editor, Paul Machliss, the technology used to bring this to life could be one of the reasons why the film has been postponed lately.

“It’s going to be exciting,” said Machliss IBC. “I mean, Warners asked us to make the best possible film. What I can say is that we… We’re the first film to use a very, very new technology to get multiple versions of the same actor on screen, rather than using either locked cameras or even motion controls, which we do have used [Last Night in Soho]. There’s been a development with some wonderful technology that I’d like to talk about right now, but by this time next year when the film is out we can get into really good detail. But it’s very, very exciting and I’m very pleased to say that we’re the first, certainly on a film of this scale, to use it. Probably why it actually took so long to finish. But it’s worth the wait because it looks fantastic.”

what is The Lightning movie over?

in the The LightningBarry Allen travels back in time to prevent his mother’s murder, with unintended consequences for his timeline. The Lightning should be directed by IT‘s Muschietti, with a screenplay by birds of prey and Batgirls Christine Hodson. It stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton’s iterations of Bruce Wayne/Batman, as well as Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, and Maribel Verdu as Nora Allen, Ian Loh as a young Barry Allen and Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Rudy Mancuso in previously unknown roles.

“In a way, I would say that there are a few villains, or so-called villains, in our movie that’s part of the movie’s exploration and message,” Miller explained during the DC FanDome in October 2021. “I’m going to say those things because they don’t make sense together surrendered and everything remains somehow cryptic and mysterious. What good is a villain surrounded by an atmosphere of mystery—until they pop out!”

The Lightning is currently scheduled for release on June 23, 2023.
