Superman and Wonder Woman cameos reportedly cut from The Flash

Rumours suggest that cameo appearances by both Superman and Wonder Woman have been cut from next year’s The Flash movie.

The Warner Bros. DC universe is currently going through a tough transitional period, with multiple project cancellations and box office underperformers. However, many are hoping that will change in the years to come, with James Gunn now co-leading DC Studios in an attempt to revitalise and reinvent the company’s ailing properties.

Recent upheavals have included director Patty Jenkins’ version of Wonder Woman 3 being put on hold, Henry Cavill now not returning as Superman and Black Adam’s $389 million worldwide gross calling into question the future of the character on the big screen. There are also a number of existing DC projects in post-production, with both Blue Beetle and The Flash still on track for release in 2023. 

The latter movie may now be the latest film to be impacted by the ongoing changes at DC Studios, with a couple of major character cameos said to have been cut from The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter states that appearances by both Cavill’s Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman were shot for the upcoming Ezra Miller movie, but have now been removed from the final version altogether.

That would seem to make sense considering recent developments and the new direction DC Studios is said to be heading in. As of this writing, only one LEGO DC set is rumoured to be arriving in 2023 and it may coincidentally be a direct tie-in with The Flash. 76221 Batmobile: Flash Tracking was revealed by an online retailer back in May, although there have been no additional details on the potential model since then and no confirmation from the LEGO Group regarding the set so far.

In the meantime, all poor DC fans have to look forward to is two new LEGO DC keyrings based on Michael Keaton’s Batman and Harley Quinn, both of which will launch on January 1, 2023  priced at £4.99 / $5.99 / €5.99.
