I don’t know how many others on here, like me, check their favorite movie gossip/leak/tid-bit web sites every morning before work, but it’s led to sometimes getting me more excited for certain films, or other times just fearing their eventual release.
Batman has been my favorite superhero for as long as I can remember, and the recent BvS movie just physically pained me for many reasons. So here I am, checking every little leak that comes out from Zack Snyder and his inevitable Justice League movie, and one review has him showing (either script form or actual video - they’re about 1/3 way through production by now) a scene where Batman recruits the Flash for his “team” (“We’re putting together a team” -Nick Fury).
As I read this, all I can think of is the scene in the recent Marvel Civil War film where Stark shows up at Spiderman’s house. Am I the only one bothered by this? (am I really suck a nitpicky nerd? -lol)
THE FLASH INTRODUCTION SCENE
The setup of the scene that we were shown on-set is Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) returning to his apartment that is filled with technology that is all patched together. Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) is already there sitting in his Lazy Boy chair waiting for him. Bruce has the convenience store security camera footage in his possession which we saw originally in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
BARRY ALLEN: “You must be looking for a person who looks exactly like me but is definitely not me. Somebody…I don’t know…hippie…long hair. A very attractive Jewish boy.”
Bruce shows him the camera footage which has Barry grabbing milk in the store. _
_ BARRY ALLEN: “Well he drinks milk and I don’t drink milk.”
BRUCE WAYNE: “I know you have abilities; I just don’t know what they are.”
BARRY ALLEN: “My special skills include viola, web design, fluent in sign-language, gorilla sign-language…”
BRUCE WAYNE: “Silicon-based sand coarse fabric. Abrasion-resistant. Heat-resistant.
_ BARRY ALLEN: “Uh yeah I do competitive ice dancing.”_
BRUCE WAYNE: “This is used on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up upon re-entry.”
BARRY ALLEN: “I ummm do…very competitive ice dancing. Look man I don’t know who you are but whoever you’re looking for, it’s not me.”
Bruce then quickly throws a Batarang at Barry as the environment goes into slo-motion except for him who easily catches the Batarang and makes the revelation that Bruce is Batman. _
_ BARRY ALLEN: “You’re the Batman?”
BRUCE WAYNE: “So you’re fast.”
BARRY ALLEN: “That feels like an over-simplification.”
BRUCE WAYNE: “I’m putting together a team of people with special abilities. You see I think enemies are coming…”
BARRY ALLEN: “STOP! Right there. I’m in.”
BRUCE WAYNE: “You are. Just like that?”
BARRY ALLEN: “Yeah. Umm…I need friends.”
BRUCE WAYNE: “Great.”
BARRY ALLEN: looking at the Batarang “Can I keep this?”
