Who Is The Batman In The DC Fandome Flash Teaser?

DC FanDome dropped bomb after bomb in the form of trailers, teasers, and sneak peeks. The four-hour event was dedicated to DC fans as comics, small-screen series, and feature films were celebrated. Some of the biggest highlights of the event included a teaser for "Black Adam," a trailer for HBO Max Series "Peacemaker," and of course, a second "The Batman" trailer.

However, one of the big attention stealers of the afternoon came in the first look at "The Flash," one of the DCEU's newest films, currently in production. Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) himself debuted the clip to FanDome viewers, giving fans a taste of what to expect from the 2022 movie. The teaser contains mostly scenic views, but there are several glimpses of Barry in and out of the iconic red suit. The biggest takeaway from the new clip is the voice narrating throughout the teaser, and the character is revealed right at the very end before things cut to black. In a massive surprise, Batman makes an appearance in "The Flash" teaser for a brief moment when Barry asks him, "are you in?" Unfortunately, we don't see the face of this Batman, but we know from the narration and the back of the cowl just who it is.

Michael Keaton is back

Listening closely to "The Flash" teaser reveals that Michael Keaton is narrating, and it's his iconic version of the Caped Crusader who shows up at the end of the video. "Tell me something," Bruce Wayne begins. "You can go anywhere you want, right? Any timeline. Any universe. Why do you want to stay and fight to save this woman? You changed the future, and you changed the past."

Since "The Flash" is confirmed to take inspiration from the "Flashpoint" comics (via Collider), it looks like Barry is traveling back in time to save his late mother. Bruce's monologue suggests he doesn't know why Barry is doing whatever he is doing, but the duo appears to team up at the end of the trailer as they are both in their suits, along with Supergirl (Sasha Calle) and a second, more bulked up Barry played by Ezra Miller as well. While Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne is also set to appear in "The Flash," he is not present in the first sneak peek. There is no mistaking that this cowl belongs to Keaton's Batman, evident in the tall, pointy tips of the ears.

This tease is only the tip of the iceberg for what's to come in "The Flash," and fans can expect a full-length trailer in the coming months. The film is set to land in theaters on November 4, 2022.
