Although DC's long-anticipated superhero blockbuster focusing on the superhero character of Flash, who travels back in time using his superpower to prevent the murder of his mother, is far away from its official release in theaters around the world, film director Andy Muschiett has already started teasing about various interesting details regarding the film.

Muschietti while attending the virtual Chinese version of DC FanDome said that the emotional elements of the film for him was very "compelling" and it really was something that brought him in "emotional power." "Mainly the emotional aspects of the story were very compelling to me. Obviously, it's a superhero movie, it's a big spectacle adventure, but what really brought me into it was the emotional power of it, there's an emotional message in the story, it's also a time-traveling story which is always very attractive to me. Time travel has something that is inherently compelling in general, but this one is very special because it's a very intimate conflict," the 48-year-old filmmaker said.

The 'IT' director Muschietti further goes on to say that Barry Allen also known as Flash, who is trying to save his mother is one of the major elements from the film that was "so attractive" for him. "It's about a boy who is looking for his mother, and that's what was so attractive to me, that emotional drive," added Muschietti of Nora Allen (Maribel Verdul), who died when Barry was nine.

During the same panel visit, Muschietti teased a lot of surprises that the fans and followers are going to absolutely love in the film when it releases the theatres. "We can tell you there are surprises, we cannot reveal what they are," Muschietti answered when asked what surprises audiences can expect to see in the upcoming film. "But it will probably blow your socks off..." He refused to go into spoiler territory, saying, "The less we talk about it the better. There's excitement behind the cameras about those surprises. You better not know them until you see them on the big screen."

Muschietti's adaptation of Flash will feature superstars such as Ezra Miller in the role of Flash, Michael Keaton in the role of Batman also known as Bruce Wayne, Ben Affleck as another version of Bruce Wayne also known as Batman, Sasha Calle in the role of Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons in the role of Iris West, Maribel VerdĂș in the role of Nora Allen, Ron Livingston in the role of Henry Allen, and additional actors like Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso, and Luke Brandon Field. The Flash is all set to arrive in theatres on November 4, 2022.
