Love or hate Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it’s hard to deny that The Flash’s time travel was damn cool. In the visually stunning sequence, Barry Allen raced back to undo Steppenwolf’s win, and gave us a glimpse into the original plans for the Scarlet Speedster that he’d been through in both Snyder’s Justice League sequels and on his own solo foray time would have traveled.
Now, Snyder Cut’s VFX supervisor John DJ Des Jardin has revealed that Warner Bros. executives have been unable to delve into The Flash’s journey through the Speed Force.
“It’s funny because that’s always been in history. We shot like this in 2016. It was something that, I don’t know what it was, the mood in the studio at the time, they just didn’t get it, to be honest, “ he explained. “They just said, ‘I don’t get this,’ and maybe it was previous nature or nature after Vis or whatever, but it was one of the first things they threw away after pulling Zack out of the movie , Unfortunately.”
“I loved the breath, the depth and the scope that he gave to these great ideas that are in this imagery.”
It’s crazy to think that the theatrical version of Justice League wasted so much time after Barry Allen saved a random family, when the entire final act could have been so much cooler.
Whether Warner Bros. has now managed to figure out the Speed Force and time travel remains to be seen, but it seems to be what’s to come The Lightning The film will accompany Barry on his journey through the DC multiverse. That should be a lot of fun, although we hope that the Speed Force won’t be glossed over there!
