Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for ‘The Flash.runtime for The Flash Running almost two and a half hours makes it a long journey for “The Fastest Man Alive,” however, make sure there is something waiting for fans as soon as the credits have finished rolling. End credits scenes in superhero movies are certainly not a new development, as both Marvel and DC have included them in almost all of their previous movies and shows. Although it is rare for an end credit sequence to generate the hype that one is for The Flash There is. When the film premiered early at Cinemacon 2023, the actual ending report and end credits were removed to avoid early leaks and spoilers.
Some big movies and revelations hit the internet well before the movie’s release, especially one from the director. Andy Muschietti Himself when he revealed one of the many amazing early cameos. The end credits also feature a cameo, but before we dive into explaining the sequence, consider your final warning.
The End-Credits Scene of ‘The Flash’ Reunites Barry Allen and Arthur Curry
For much of the film’s runtime, Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) lamented that his poor social skills left him with a great lack of friends. Of course he has his colleagues in the Justice League and set a date with Iris West (Kiersey Clemons) toward the end of the film, but the only social interaction he has is his frankly lazy colleague at the Midtown Police Department in Patty Spivot (Saoirse-Monica Jackson) and Albert Desmond (Rudy Mancuso). However, Barry clearly needs a friend to talk to, especially after his various adventures have ended in another former Batman (who isn’t. Michael Keaton) instead Ben Affleckof Bruce Wayne.
So, Barry approached the tough and tough team member, Arthur Curry, also known as Aquaman. Again playing by Jason Momoa, the scene begins with Barry and Arthur leaving the bar. Despite having more than a few drinks, Barry was stoned due to his fast metabolism. On the other hand, Arthur is absolutely plastered, prancing on the streets of Central City completely intoxicated. Maybe alcohol is needed for Barry to tell Arthur about the multiverse theory, which is an understandably hard pill to swallow.
Barry tells Arthur how there are many different Batman variants in the multiverse, but in the case of Aquaman, they all seem to resemble the DCEU version we all know and love. After a while, Arthur bent down and fell into the pool. That would be a drowning hazard for most alcoholics, but certainly not a problem for Aquaman, who can breathe underwater. Disregarding his cultivation, Arthur gives Barry the Atlantean ring so he can sell it and they can buy more alcohol.
Jason Momoa Is Not ‘Aquaman’ Star Only in Cameo in ‘The Flash’
The appearance of Jason Momoa as Aquaman is one of the great appearances in The FlashBut other cast members from Aquaman The franchise beat Momoa to the punch earlier in the movie. After being struck by lightning and losing his powers, Barry quickly learns that the new timeline he created paved the way for the return of General Zod (Michael Shannon). Remembering how Zod killed a decent portion of Metropolis’ population, Barry tries to reassemble the Justice League in this new dimension.
This task proves to be easier said than done, as most of the members of the Justice League from his size never become heroes, completely disappear, or simply never born at all. When Barry tries to find Cyborg (Ray Fisher), he learns that Victor Stone is still pursuing a career in football and has never gained power. When Barry tries to find Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), has any records of Diana Prince.
Barry managed to find a phone number for Thomas Curry, Aquaman’s human father. When Barry called the number, it was answered by none other than Temuera Morrison, again rerising the role of Thomas Curry. The only problem is that in this new timeline Thomas Curry never met the Atlantean Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) and instead of living a normal life as a plumber. Therefore, Arthur Curry was never born. Luckily, Barry manages to find an older version of Batman (Keaton) and an imprisoned Supergirl (Sasha Calle) to help him face Zod.
What do the End-Credits Scene of ‘The Flash’ mean for the future of DC?
DC Studios and their cinematic universe is in a state of renaissance and uncertainty, after the appointment of James Gunn And Peter Safran Co-CEOs of production companies. With characters like Superman and Batman being brought back, many fans thought that Gunn and Safran were just rebooting the series. However, it seems that some characters and actors are stuck, such as: Viola DavisAmanda Waller.
In the case of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, considering the previous actor’s opinion, the upcoming release. Aquaman and the Lost EmpireAnd the appearance of the character in The FlashLast credits, it looks like Momoa may be here to stay. There has been some speculation online that Momoa may be recast in Gunn and Safran’s DCU as Lobo, but instead, he may continue to portray the fan favorite Aquaman. The end credits sequence also adds more credibility to this theory, as Barry clearly states that Aquaman is more or less the same in every timeline. Although the new DCU takes place in a completely different universe, chances are that Momoa will still be Aquaman.
For Ezra Miller, their fate in the future of the DCU is very uncertain. Their off-screen behavior and numerous controversies have led DC Studios and James Gunn to play coy about whether the actor will return to the role, despite endorsements from friends such as director Andy Muschietti. Miller’s return to the role seems to be linked to all their public image and if it is better, but the actor has been missing from the press for The Flash Even being a star is not a great start.
