Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for The Flash, a new superhero movie centered around the titular speedster that marks the DC character’s first-ever standalone feature film. Ezra Miller reprises their role as Barry Allen, having played The Flash in previous features that include 2021’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but audiences can also expect to see the return of some other major characters, according to the trailer, which includes the first footage of Michael Keaton returning to the role of Batman after some decades. General Zod (Michael Shannon) and Faora (Antje Traue) from Man of Steel are also back, joined by a Supergirl played by Sasha Calle. The Flash will speed into theaters on June 16, 2023.

From a Warner Bros. Pictures trailer description:

Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?

“The Flash” ensemble also includes rising star Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon (“Bullet Train,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Ron Livingston (“Loudermilk,” “The Conjuring”), Maribel Verdú (“Elite,” “Y tu mamá también”), Kiersey Clemons (“Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” “Sweetheart”), Antje Traue (“King of Ravens,” “Man of Steel”) and Michael Keaton (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Batman”).
