Flash’s New Comic Canonizes Zack Snyder’s Justice League in the DCEU

DCs The Flash will finally be released on June 23rd 223 after many delays but the official tiein comic answers a question fans have been asking even before the movie began filming if Zack Snyder’s Justice League is canon to the DCEU. 217s Justice League was quite controversial to DC fans for many production issues and these controversies did not die down when Snyder’s own version in the socalled Snyderverse was released in 221. Now The Flash The Fastest Man Alive #1 finally grants DC fans an answer.

The story behind the development of Justice League is well known by fans and casual cinema audiences alike Zack Snyder left the film after the tragic suicide of his daughter after which Warner Bros. hired writerdirector Joss Whedon to oversee numerous reshoots and finish the film. The final product was tonally inconsistent with numerous plot holes owing to the rushed development and the studios insistence on a two hour runtime and a 217 release date. When Zack Snyder’s Justice League was released on HBO Max in 221 fans saw that many subplots were cut including a crucially important scene in which the Flash runs back in time saving the entire team and the world from destruction.

The Flash The Fastest Man Alive #1 written by Kenny Porter with art by Ricardo Lopez Ortiz depicts Barry Allen fighting the classic Flash villain Girder the enemy is far too powerful for Barry to attack with his regular tactics and despairs in the face of overwhelming odds. Batman fighting next to Flash remains him that he was indispensable during the events of Justice League You went tomatoes with the worst the universe had to offer and saved this planet. You rushed here to save lives knowing you could lose this fight.

Failures dont do that brave men do. Batman may not know it but he just confirmed the canonicity of Zack Snyders Justice League for all readers.The Flash certainly did not fight the worst the universe had to offer in the 217 theatrical cut and absolutely did not save the planet that was the doing of Barry Allen in the 221 version. Flash was mostly absent from the final battle in the theatrical cut running away from Steppenwolf to save civilians along with Superman. The statement is admittedly vague but Batman wouldnt have said it if he was referring to Flash saving one truck with a Russian family as opposed to the entire world. The series has only just begun and only the writers know for sure if more Justice League callbacks will appear in future issues. For now Zack Snyders Justice League is officially part of the DCEU. But considering the Flash film will adapt the realityaltering events of the 211 series Flashpoint the future is not set in stone.
