With the Multiverse being officially introduced during the current season of The Flash on the CW, fans have begun speculating that DC’s upcoming Extended Universe could be one of the worlds that Professor Stein described to Team Flash. Incidentally, Kevin Smith – co-host of DC’s special, Dawn of the Justice League which gave us a sneak preview at what’s to come from the first slate of films, mentioned on his podcast Fat-Man on Batman that there was a portion in the special about the Multiverse that they cut out. Here’s what he said.
“We saw Ezra Miller, who’s playing movie Flash, and we had shot for those that follow this sort of thing…you know, I’m a big f–king Flash fan, huge Flash fan… I’ve been talking about like why are they f–king… we talked about it on the show… why the f–k would you create a new Flash in the movies, with all apologies to Ezra Miller who’s a great actor, but like you’ve got a Flash audience and Grant is f–king phenomenal and stuff.” “And we did a piece where we talked about, I don’t know how much I’m supposed to say because they cut it out, and I was kind of bummed they cut it out. But the idea of, ‘Hey man, DC is known for nothing if not a multiverse,’ so at which point I was like, ‘Could they f–king crossover?’ And he was like, ‘Ahhhhh.’ So doors are being left open and stuff like that for… think about this, you can have Ezra Miller be The Flash and you could also have Grant be The Flash, because there’s a multiverse at work.”
Sounds like WB and DC Films could be looking at integrating a Multiverse into their cinematic universe. What also back up this up quite a bit is Chief Creative Officer and comic book legend Geoff Johns speaking to Buzzfeed in 2014 about the Multiverse.
Well, Arrow and Flash are the same universe, and we get a lot of great story out of that — especially when we have episodes that cross them over, but that’s also where our superhero universe lives. We look at it as the multiverse. We have our TV universe and our film universe, but they all co-exist. For us, creatively, it’s about allowing everyone to make the best possible product, to tell the best story, to do the best world. Everyone has a vision and you really want to let the visions shine through. I think the characters are iconic enough. I like [Marvel’s Agents of] S.H.I.E.L.D. a lot. I love what Marvel does. I’m a huge fan. It’s just a different approach.
Could The Flash and Arrow be joining the DCEU after all? Way too soon to tell but the fact that the Multiverse segment was removed from the DC special could mean either:
A: They’re not doing it and don’t want to give fans false hope, or B: They’re currently discussing and aren’t ready to reveal any details regarding it.
I’ll say one thing though, early Multiverse talks could explain the lack of Shazam and Justice League: Dark news.
