While the fans know that Ezra Miller's in the role of Scarlet Speedster Flash also known as Barry Allen will come together with the film director Andy Muschietti for the upcoming superhero film to take the viewers in the film through different timelines and universes, Muschietti himself during a virtual appearance at DC FanDome China opened up about the concept of the multiverse in the film and how will it work out. "I can't tell you a lot about the future of this, the future of the Multiverse in DC, but I can tell you I'm very excited about it as a filmmaker cracking this acorn and opening the window to new adventures in the Multiverse is super exciting," he said.

The 48-year-old filmmaker went on to say that the concept of the multiverse is something that has been extensively explored in the comics and now is the perfect time to explore it in live-action. "The Multiverse has been a thing in the comic book world for decades, and decades, and decades, and I think it's a good time to take it into [the movies]. It's also very special that our Multiverse is not just a Multiverse of characters, it's a Multiverse of films," Muschietti added.

The 'IT' director added saying that the concept of the multiverse in the much-anticipated film is one of the main reasons he got involved in the project and the audience are going to see as Michael Keaton from a different timeline will make his appearance in the movie. "It's a cinematic Multiverse as you might already know by looking at the names that are showing up like Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman, it's very exciting and one of the reasons that I got closer and closer to this project," he further added.

During the same appearance at the DC FanDome, Andy Muschietti also teased the fans that the film has a lot of surprises related to the multiverse that he is pretty excited about. "We can tell you that there are surprises," he added. "We cannot reveal what they are, but they will probably blow your socks off. They will. I think the less we talk about it the better. There's excitement behind the camera about those surprises, but you're better not knowing them until you see them on the big screen," he said.

While Ezra Miller returns in the film as he previously also played the superhero role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice released in 2016, Justice League released in 2017, Suicide Squad released in 2016 and Zack Snyder's Justice League released in 2021, along with Ben Affleck in the role 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, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso, and Luke Brandon Field.

The Flash will arrive in theatres on November 4, 2022, after a long delay due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the creative differences that emerged between different directors of the film.
