A brand new video for DC Studios’ highly-anticipated superhero movie The Flash has surfaced online, featuring new footage of Sasha Calle’s Kara Zor-El/ Supergirl. The Young and the Restless alum will be the latest actress to play the Girl of Steel in live-action, following Helen Slater and Melissa Benoist.
The video and previous trailers have confirmed that Calle’s Supergirl is replacing Superman in the film’s version of the comics’ famous Flashpoint storyline which featured the Man of Steel becoming a lab-rat instead of being raised by the Kents in Kansas.
Who’s the Cast of The Flash Movie?
DC Studios’ The Flash movie is directed by Andy Muschietti from a screenplay written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson. It stars Ezra Miller as Scarlet Speedster/Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, along with Keaton and Ben Affleck who will reprise their respective versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman for the film.
“Worlds collide in The Flash when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
The film is executive produced by Marianne Jenkins, with Michael Disco and Barbara Muschietti serving as producers. It is slated to arrive in theaters on June 16.
