What Song Plays During The Final Trailer For The Flash?

With only weeks left until its official release, the final trailer for "The Flash" is here with a riveting look at Barry's (Ezra Miller) time travel escapade. After some promising first reactions, DC fans should be very excited about the film and its multiple compelling cameos. "The Flash" features a double dose of Miller as the Flash travels across the multiverse to change his devastating past. It even includes Flash's fellow Justice League member Batman (Ben Affleck) and the jaw-dropping return of Michael Keaton as the caped crusader. 

The final look at the highly-anticipated film showcases an action-packed adventure with Barry grappling with the unforeseen consequences of his actions. Additionally, it spotlights Sasha Celle's debut as Supergirl to defeat the evil General Zod (Michael Shannon) and his army of intergalactic beings. As he prepares to take over the DC cinematic universe, James Gunn has monumental praise for "The Flash." 

Viewers may also be wondering about the rock song in the background that scores the heroes' daring feats in the most recent trailer. The new teaser features a fitting tune from an iconic punk-rock band to highlight the trippy elements in "The Flash." The trailer is expertly edited to Pink Floyd's "Time" to centralize the sprawling time travel narrative with an epic rendition of the song.

Pink Floyd's Time sets the tone for Barry's time travel adventure

While "The Flash" may not take place during the 1970s when Pink Floyd's beloved album was released, the thrilling decision to use "Time" prepares fans for the heavy wave of nostalgia that hits with the appearance of Michael Keaton's Batman. The trailer gleefully shows off his unforgettable Batmobile design as well as an impressive array of Batsuits for any and every occasion. It even depicts a stunning shot of the Dark Knight diving out of his Batwing, which aptly recreates the original Batman logo.

The lyrics of "Time" also play a role in indicating how Barry may be feeling, especially given the high stakes of this film. 

"No one told you when to run," the song states. "You missed the starting gun. And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older, shorter of breath, and one day closer to death." 

In the film, Flash is looking for guidance in his unique pursuit and seeks help from Batman until ultimately finding it in an alternate version of himself. He is also desperately trying to defeat General Zod in order to prevent more people and meta-humans from losing their lives. Pink Floyd's "Time" perfectly sets the racing clock against Barry in his extraordinary act to save the multiverse.
