Following a couple of brief cameos in past DC films, audiences will be properly introduced to Ezra Miller’s Flash in this fall’s Justice League. When we meet Barry Allen, he’ll be wearing an early version of the Flash costume that he made himself. He is expected to get a costume upgrade at some point in the movie. However, we now know one part of the costume that we won’t see…at least in this film.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly on the Justice League set last year, Miller confirms that we will not be seeing Flash’s iconic ring in the movie. “I can confirm, spoiler alert, his suit does not pop out of his ring [in the movie]. Things have to progress, you know? Original Barry Allen was clearly an incredibly, incredibly clever scientist. We acknowledge and respect that. We want to apologize to the fans who are mad about the ring thing.”
In the comics, Barry has stored his suit into a ring, and when he’s ready to use it, it just pops out. But The Flash television series hasn’t shown Barry getting the ring either; Reverse-Flash has used it, while there have been subtle hints of Barry eventually having one…maybe.
Despite the ring’s absence from Justice League, Miller teases the presence of other iconic Flash elements in this movie and beyond. “I know the ring is the coolest thing about the DC universe. It was a little hard for us to sell in this version of this universe right now. Bear with us! There’s gonna be other cool things.”
Assuming Justice League is a hit, fans will likely be seeing plenty more of Miller’s Flash in the future. The character will topline a Flashpoint movie, an ensemble piece which will reportedly feature Wonder Woman and several other Justice Leaguers. And that’s not counting any potential sequels or cameos in other movies.
