So the film begins with the logos for both Warner Brothers and DC. But to play on the time travel nature of this story, we see past versions of the logos morphing into new versions until reaching their present day designs.

The opening scene of the film is very reminiscent of this deleted Flash scene from the Snyder Cut of the Justice League. The scene even opens with Barry saying how late he is, just like in the Snyder Cut. [clip]

The film opening with Barry being late to work reminds me a lot of the opening to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Peter is late to work because of the responsibilities of being Spider-Man. But what makes Barry being late even more poetic is that he’s the fastest man alive but he’s STILL late.

We see Barry look down at his watch which is giving him a low calorie alert. This is a reference to his very fast metabolism and how he requires a lot of sustenance to maintain his super speed. [clip, justice league, flash “I need to eat, go find alfred in the pantry”]

Barry’s phone rings and we see Alfred’s name along with an animated Butler picture that looks a lot like the Alfred from Batman the Animated Series. We then get the triumphant return of Jeremy Irons Alfred Pennyworth.

He’s calling Barry to let him know that Batman needs a hand. We then hear Barry ask Alfred why Superman or Wonder Woman or any other members of the Justice League can’t come help. Alfred says that Superman is busy and Wonder Woman can’t be reached. Similar to this scene in Far From Home. [clip, Peter asking Furry about other heroes]

We get a brief glimpse of Henry Cavill’s Superman fighting a volcano, but we don’t see his face. Likely because Cavill is out as the Man of Steel, something Colton is still crying about.

We then see Barry make his way to the bathroom to change, well not so much to change, he could change so fast no one would even notice. But more so to make it look like he didn’t vanish from thin air when he speeds away.

After he suits up we hear for the first time in DCEU history Bary referred to as “The Flash.” [clip]

And we actually already saw where Barry got the idea to call himself The Flash over in the CW’s DC Universe when Ezra Miller’s Flash made a cameo alongside Grant Guston’s Flash. [clip]

Notice that this girl who is a huge flash fan, is actually wearing two flash pins on her jacket. She’s actually secret casting of another speedster from the comics who might get powers in a future movie, this is your mom.

Barry runs from Central City to Gotham City to help Batman. In the comics Central City is the Gotham City to Barry’s Batman or the Metropolis to his Superman, it’s his own fictional city. And speaking of Superman, this scene of Barry running across different terrains was very reminiscent of Superman’s first flight in Man of Steel. [clip]

So the skinny of it is that a deadly virus has been stolen by some bad guys. A virus that could wipe out a significant portion of the population.

We then see Ben Affleck’s Batman pursuing the bad guys on his batcycle. This batcycle looks very similar to the batpod from Nolan’s Dark Knight films. Difference being that the batpod had 2 fat tires. Whereas the Batfleck batcycle has dual tires in the front and one fat tire in the back.

Barry asks why Batman seems to be fleeing the scene and he explains to Barry that he’s chasing the bad guys and that he needs Barry to save the people in the hospital. When mentioning the bad guys we hear Batman refer to “Falcone’s idiot kid” being the leader of this robbery gone wrong.

Falcone is a classic mob boss Batman villain that we’ve seen in prior films like Batman Begins and The Batman. [clip]

Now in typical Batfleck fashion we see Batman using guns. These guns are connected to his bike, but in his defense the “no killing” Bail Batman also had guns on his batpod.

  1. This movie is hilariously bad. You say "attention to detail" meanwhile, just one example of how very little was given, a big deal is made out of his calorie watch, yet it never comes up again. You'd think it would make an interesting dilemma but nope. Forget about attention to detail, how about attention at all LOL

    Also, Batman is known to donate a lot of money & had foundations. Heck in the same movie, the hospital wing is named after his mother showing his generosity & he hasn't neglected his financial impact. But no matter how much money he donated if there's corruption, what do you think will happen with all that cash? I really think you say "attention to detail" tongue in cheek

  2. Note: This Batwing is NOT the same one as the batwing from the keaton films. This one is an upgraded version wich is larger, and has a different silhouette

  3. Yah but wait hold up I just thought of something, Barry’s original father from the other movies, is different, dose this mean we are actually starting this whole movie in a completely different timeline then the Snyder verse?

  4. Henry Cavil, Tom welling, Brandon routh, Tyler Hoechlin, and Dean Cain could have all been possible choices for a Superman Cameo instead they bring back a dead actor. The worst part is they couldn’t even put the extra money into making It look real, it’s really unsettling.

  5. More forgot Easter eggs the flash movie 2023

    5 batman's death references to avengers endgame Tony stark's death

  6. The Michael Keaton Batman doesnt die. The Flash changes the time lines and by doing so.. leaves the Michael Keaton Batman in retirement… so the movie becomes irrelevant. He instead tried to move the tomatoes.. which jumped him to the Clooney world..

  7. 7:03, 7:28, Given that the table was instead trailing plasma due to the air around it being ignited, Barry doesn’t physical interact much with people for fear of injuring or killing them if he isn’t precisely in control of his movements.

    12:58, Barry running in place could also tie into how his father called him out for his fixation on solving his case instead of living in the present, as well as the Cosmic Treadmill Speedsters sometimes use to achieve time travel in the comics and the CW show.

    15:12, At least in the Snyder Cut of Justice League, we see Barry about to turning intangible as a rampaging Superman attempts to blast him with heat vision and then again to survive the Mother Boxes terraforming wave before rewinding himself to before the explosion to charge Cyborg.

  8. AVP
    and aging about to give it back to them again / !!!!!wWELLCOM!!!!!/ the fucking never of you / they won't have egot it agin / if you hadn't of helped them / move it …. die

  9. I don't like that 'wise' advice from Barry's mother.
    As Ryan said there is an infinite number of equations that you could put there, so there is an infinite number of solutions for that and not none.

    This said: there is no solution as to to write them all down, but it was about writing down as many solution as you can.
    Whereas there is NO solution to save that particular world, as we can see in the 'infinite' times Barry#2 tries to find ONE.

    His problem with math is that there are too many solutions.
    His problem with this world is that there is none.

    So in my opinion it's just a bad analogy.

  10. Did Barry actually get the right can of tomatoes? “The grey one, not the blue one.” The one he put in his mom’s shopping cart looked really blue to me…

  11. This guy be adding clips from MARVEL movies just to add to “Easter eggs and references” even though they are two separate things.

    “150 Easter eggs taken out from my ass to make this video the longest”

  12. Waitaminute. If Barry didn't have a job at the Crime Lab before the end of Justice League in the Snyder timeline – then why would he have been in the Crime Lab to be struck by lightning in the first place? He gets his powers from the chemicals being electrified in that lab – but without the job in the first place – there's no reason for him to be there?

  13. I’m confused. You refer to the “baby shower” as one of the best superhero sequences in comic movie history. In another video you crap all over it for how ridiculous and corny it is and how bad the CGI is (I agree with the latter argument). Which is it? Do you hate it or love it? I’m glad the movie got more serious because the early part was too goofy and I almost left the theatre. It did get much better.

  14. I haven’t seen anyone mention the Batwing is a different model to the ‘89 version, which is an exact representation of the chest logo from that film, which this one doesn’t appear to be
