The Flash Director's Instagram Post Teases Something Incredible

The Flash's solo movie has been uncharacteristically slow getting out of the gate. Plans for a blockbuster about the fastest man alive have been pinballing around Hollywood since three Batmen ago, with "Blade: Trinity" director David S. Goyer attached as far back as 2004. Since then, half a dozen or so potential "Flash" projects have reached various stages of pre-production — spinoffs from George Miller's "Justice League Mortal," a story from the writers of 2011's "Green Lantern," and a Phil Lord/Christopher Miller script all failed to see the light of day.

Now, after years of waiting, fans are finally on their way to seeing a Barry Allen-centric story hit the big screen, with "The Flash" currently scheduled for a late-2022 theatrical debut. Plot details have been kept under lock and key. All signs point to a multidimensional, franchise-spanning, continuity-exploding festival of weirdness, and oh, yeah: Sources confirm that the Flash will run pretty fast at one point or another during the narrative. Besides some broad-stroke story points involving Michael Keaton's Bruce Wayne, we haven't seen much coming out of the production, at least at an official level.

Or, we hadn't, until "The Flash" director Andy Muschietti threw fans a bone on his Instagram page on June 14, 2021.

Muschietti gives fans a quick look at the Flash

Just like that, fans of the scarlet speedster got a good, close look at the new design for the Flash logo, complete with intricate, labyrinthine elements, an almost alien crimson material, and, most importantly, that classic golden lightning bolt that just screams, "This guy is probably quick like a bunny. A lightning bunny."

It should come as no surprise that Andy Muschietti didn't give viewers much to go on with his Instagram post besides an eyeful of iconography — the image itself is tagged simply "#theflashmovie" — but that doesn't mean that there aren't potential takeaways. The maze-like patterns spread across the image could symbolize the twisting path that the Flash is set to travel in his reality-hopping excursion into the world of solo adventures. The metallic hues could imply that Barry is wearing new, high-tech armor in his latest incarnation. Comic book movies are a dish best served with a side of wild internet speculation. There are no wrong answers.

"The Flash" is scheduled to hit theaters on November 4, 2022.
