The Flash slowed down long enough to appear in a new photo from the upcoming team-up flick "Justice League," and the tense image teases that the latest DC superhero to step into the spotlight will have a lot on his plate in the near future. And that doesn't even count the villains he will fight alongside the rest of the titular team.
Played by Ezra Miller, The Flash (alias: Barry Allen) has made cameo appearances in both "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad." But when "Justice League" premieres, the hero will get more screen time, and also a bit more than he bargained for when he clashes with the big personalities who have already gotten their due onscreen.
In the new photo, premiered by Entertainment Weekly, The Flash is seen alongside Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), with the trio about to spring into action against an unseen foe. But first, all the heroes in the League will need to figure out how to get along with each other -- and that's especially difficult for The Flash, described by EW as "the league's overly excitable kid brother who uses humor to mask his pain."
"Flash is Ringo Starr," Miller explained to EW, comparing the hero to the goofy, put-upon former Beatle. "He annoys everybody, but he doesn't have any specific beef with anyone."
Fans will get to witness firsthand this awkward new dynamic when "Justice League" debuts on November 17, 2017.
