On set in London, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. showed off a clip to invited press from the upcoming Justice League movie.
Though as stated by Snyder, the version of the scene that was screened to press is not the final cut. Take a look at a description of the scene below.
The scene starts out with Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen heading into his apartment. It’s dark and seems to be part of what looks like a warehouse. It’s unconventional – high ceilings, looks old, and is powered by a circuit breaker when Barry arrives to flip its switch. When that switch is flipped, dozens of lights and TV screens hanging from the ceiling are turned on. More importantly, Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne is sitting in Barry’s apartment waiting for him.
“Barry Allen… Bruce Wayne,” Bruce says to a stunned Barry. “You say that is if it’s normal to have a complete stranger sitting in my second favorite chair,” Barry responds to several laughs from the select press members watching. Bruce quickly reveals a print out of a screenshot from the convenience store surveillance footage which served as one of The Flash’s cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bruce questions Barry about what he’s doing in the moments caught on camera, but Barry insists, comedically, that is someone who looks exactly like him but is definitely not him.”
“That’s a person who looks exactly like me but is definitely not,” Allen replies. “Hippie, long hair, very attractive Jewish boy. He drinks milk, I don’t drink milk,” he jokes as Wayne starts to walk over to a red suit standing in the apartment.
“I know you have abilities, I just don’t know what they are,” says Wayne.
“My special skills include viola, web design…” Allen rambles as Wayne examines the suit and notes it’s made of a very specific heat resistant material. “Yeah, I do competitive ice dancing,” Allen says.
“This is the stuff the space shuttle uses to prevent from burning up on reentry.”
“…Very competitive ice dancing?”
Just then, the film turns to slow-motion as Bruce Wayne hurls one of the razor-sharp, bat-logo-shaped throwing stars he used in BvS at Allen. Allen looks at it inquisitively as it passes him in slow motion then, with a profound realization, grabs it out of the air. Silence, surprise, and then: “You’re the Batman?”
“And you’re fast.”
“That feels like an oversimplification.”
Bruce tells Allen he’s putting together a team of people with special abilities because he believes enemies are coming. Barry immediately wants to be part of it, and Batman can’t help but ask why he’s agreed so quickly. “I need friends,” says Barry, just before holding up the throwing-bat/star. “Can I keep this?”
Ezra Miller as The Flash is already bringing the light into the DCEU. If the character’s interactions are just as what we have read and seen so far, we are in for a very dynamic superhero movie with no shortage of fun.
