DCEU’s ‘The Flash’ is growing wilder day by day. After Keaton and Ben Affleck’s Batman, it’s time for Smallville and Arrowverse heroes to join the multiverse heist.
It was around 2014 when WB announced ‘The Flash’ in DCEU. Since then, fans are waiting for the movie announced half a decade ago to, at least, begin filming. DCEU’s first solo flash movie will have Barry Allen’s Flash, portrayed by Ezra Miller, going rather wild in the DC’s universe with the multiverse theory.
However, after years of wait, fans can finally see some progress in the project. WB has revealed a first look and an expected release date of 2022 in the DC Fandom event of 2020. And now, some reports suggest that other than the already known crazy cameos, ‘The Flash’ might have cameos from Arrowverse and Smallville.

DCEU’s ‘The Flash’ to have cameos of Arrowverse and Smallville heroes?
The last few weeks have been extremely hot for DCEU and WB. With updates and first glimpses on several upcoming releases like James Gunn’s ‘Suicide Squad 2’, Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’, Robert Pattinson’s ‘The Batman’, The Rock’s ‘Black Adam’, and ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, the DC fanbase is literally having the time of the decade.
However, all eyes are still on every update coming on ‘The Flash’. Just a few days ago, it was reported that Michael Keaton’s and Ben Affleck’s versions of Batman will be appearing together in ‘The Flash’. Afterwards, we covered how Brandon Routh’s Superman might also join Keaton’s Batman in ‘The Flash’. Here’s a fan art hinting at the possibility:
And now, as per We Got This Covered’s latest report,
‘The Flash’ might have cameos of Superman and Flash from Smallville and Arrowverse as well.
DCEU expanding to the small screen?
‘The Flash’ is confirmed to be inspired by DC Comics’ “Flashpoint arc” storyline. And that means Ezra Miller’s Flash will be travelling through alternate universes, eventually introducing the DC multiverse storyline to DCEU.
It’s reported that a bunch of DCEU characters might appear in ‘The Flash’ alongside their various alternate universe versions. Hence, introducing a universe of possibilities for WB and DCEU for upcoming movies.
However, as reported by WGTC, the latest report from insider Mikey Sutton claims that WB is planning to extend the DCEU multiverse to its TV shows as well. Reportedly, ‘The Flash’ might see Tom Welling’s Superman from Smallville, and Grant Gustin’s Flash from Arrowverse making a cameo appearance.
The source says:
“A reunion between Miller and Gustin is being discussed for The Flash film. The Flash movie will function as a love letter to DC Comics. Like a kindred spirit to Berlanti’s small-screen adaptation of Crisis of Infinite Earths. Talks have included reeling in other characters from the CW, past, and present. Such as Stargirl and even Tom Welling and Kristin Kreuk from Smallville. Much of this will be in the form of a cameo as Miller swiftly flashes from one parallel Earth to another.”
The Future of DCEU is wild with multiverse.
A bunch of DCEU characters and their alternate versions were already confirmed to appear in ‘The Flash’. And now, the reports of Arrowverse and Smallville also connecting to DCEU through ‘The Flash’ makes us wonder the possibilities WB and DCEU are introducing for their future films.
‘The Flash’ is rumoured to have several versions of Superman including Henry Cavill, Brandon Routh, and now Tom Welling.
The Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck’s versions of Batman are already confirmed to be a part of ‘The Flash’.
The latest Arrowverse also explored the multiverse storyline through ‘The Crisis on Infinite Earths’ and brought a bunch of DC’s TV characters together. So, if ‘The Flash’ manages to explore Arrowverse as well, through its multiverse storyline, it might bring the entire DCEU and DC’s TV world together. Making DCEU richer and grander than anything we have ever seen before.
Do you think it’s a good idea for DCEU to connect to its TV shows and explore Arrowverse through Grant Gustin’s Flash and Tom Welling’s Superman from Smallville? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
