The Flash to appear in Batman vs. Superman?

Latest rumour suggests further DC crossover

By Ryan Leston | Yahoo Contributor Network – 14 hours ago

After a slew of rumours that Wonder Woman will appear in 'Batman vs. Superman' it looks as though she's not the only DC superhero who wants in on the action…

According to sources at Variety, The Flash is rumoured to appear in Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman' amidst the growing ranks of the Justice League. But with Wonder Woman also rumoured to be on board, is there really room for yet-another superhero?

"The Wonder Woman rumour has been kicking around for some time," they explained. "Insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the film but several members of the Justice League as well. It's unclear which members, but Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that's a significant role or a cameo."

Of course, my first reaction was something along the lines of 'oh my god, the Flash!' But I have to admit, it didn't last long. I mean, let's face it - the movie is intended to be a face-off between two of DC's greatest heroes… and with all these familiar faces rumoured to show up, it's starting to feel a bit crowded.

We've already heard the rumours about Wonder Woman and it's been reported that they're even courting the idea of introducing Dick Grayson's Nightwing into the mix. But does the 'Batman vs. Superman' movie really need quite so many additional heroes? If you ask me, it feels like they're simply shoe-horning them in at this point.

Of course, their roles might not exactly be prominent - a cameo from Barry Allen could be all we get as a simple nod to the Flash. But it's starting to feel that this isn't a 'Man of Steel' sequel at all… and it's more and more like the setup to a Justice League movie.

Now, that doesn't sound like such a bad thing - after all, with the massive success of 'Avengers Assemble' it's likely that Warner Bros. want to capitalise on the popularity of the super-group. But cramming as many heroes into one movie isn't the way to do it. Especially when the focus is meant to be firmly on Batman and Superman.

Will The Flash appear in 'Batman vs. Superman'? What do you think of the ever-expanding superhero roster? Let us know what you think in the comments below…

Ryan Leston is a comic book movie geek from Cardiff who can't wait to hear more about the rumoured Justice League movie. His favourite DC film is The Dark Knight and he was hugely impressed with Henry Cavill as Superman.

Fuck me, so let's summarize. We know Batman's going to be in it but rumors are out there for Nightwing, Batgirl, Wonder Woman and now the Flash? Yeesh...

I think the more likely explanation is that somebody is feeding us an incredible line of shit here and these gossip pages aren't vetting their information very well. It's tough for me to believe that ALL these characters might be in WF. You'd think because WB has wanted the shit for so long that they'd be very careful with the marketing of this thing. "Superman meets Batman". Period, end of fucking story. You throw a bunch of other characters into the mix and you dilute what should be a very simple marketing push. Superman meets Batman. Superman meets Batman. Superman meets Batman. Superman meets Batman. THAT is your angle. Anything that distracts from that has to go, sorry.

The most I'm willing to consider is that some of these more extraneous characters like Wonder Woman and the Flash might get a post-credits scene or something similar to lead up to a Justice League of America movie... but even then you're still distracting from "Superman meets Batman" if they're prominent and in costume and stuff.

I dunno. I'm getting a bit skeptical here.

I'm afraid that if Snyder & Goyer ain't careful that we get a 'rushed product' that, like you say. is 'diluted'. The end result is not good for the fans. What could've been a 'proper' MOS sequel and/or Superman/Batman that would do us justice instead ends up being a 'hodge-podge' of conflicting ideas that possibly becomes a joke at the theater. I sincerely hope not!

Based on absolutely nothing, all this fanboy stuff sounds like something Goyer might be responsible for. He's already a comics fan and probably wants a shared universe as much as any of us. I truly hope cooler heads (ie, Snyder, WB execs, whoever) prevail because even I would be prepared to say they're jumping the gun if all these characters have big roles in the film.

THE FLASH Now Reportedly Confirmed For Appearance In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

Is this movie Batman Vs. Superman or Justice League? Hot on the heels of the news that Gal Gadot will be playing 'Wonder Woman' in the Zack Snyder helmed follow-up to Man of Steel, Variety has now confirmed earlier reports that The Flash will also make an appearance!
By Josh Wilding - 12/4/2013

Buried in Variety's report about Gal Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman (you can read more on that - including the first comments on the news from director Zack Snyder - by clicking HERE) is confirmation from Variety that 'The Flash' will indeed make an appearance in Batman Vs. Superman. However, with the site promising cameos from "several" other members of DC's superhero team (more on both that and which 300 star Warner Bros. are looking at for the villain can be found HERE), you would be forgiven for thinking that this is in fact a Justice League movie! It's worth noting that while they say that Wonder Woman and The Flash are now locks, they don't know whether that will entail a "significant role or a cameo".

Of course, this leads us to wonder (no pun intended) exactly what Warner Bros. have up their sleeve for "Batman Vs. Superman". With rumours that 'Doomsday' will also be featured, will we kick things off with the World's Finest, only to see them later joined by the rest of the Justice League? That would of course lead perfectly into a movie featuring the entire superhero team! However, with 'The Flash' also now confirmed, it's inevitable that fans will be speculating about whether or not we'll see Grant Gustin in this role, especially as the first season of the CW series will have only just ended - providing it gets a full season order - by the time Batman Vs. Superman is released.
Time will tell, I guess...

"Reportedly confirmed"? Is that anything like potentially confirmed? Definitely possible? Could be totally certain? Absolutely potential?
