The DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has taken some liberties and has come up with a new origin for the Flash and the Cyborg in the Justice League, releasing next month.
At a Justice League event organized in the Philippines, some pivotal information was revealed about the origin of the DCEU version of the Flash and Cyborg.
About the Flash
The text in a photograph shared of the Flash (later shared on Reddit) at the function, read: “Barry Allen is an excessively energetic student attending Central City College, where he studies criminal science.”
What the text indicates is that Barry is studying criminal science to one day be able to acquit his father. The text in the later part mentions that he pairs up with the “crime fighting” Batman. The last line of the text states, “Barry’s remarkably quick wit is surpassed only by his ability to move at hyper-speed.”
As per the information, it seems that The Flash character Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) is a little younger than Barry Allen in the television series. In fact, the character in the TV series is much younger than the Barry Allen from the DC Comics universe.
The DC Extended Universe origin version of Cyborg is different from both the DC comics origin as well as the revamped New 52 origin. The text from the event reveals this about Cyborg:
“Part man, part machine, Victor Stone is a former star athlete at Gotham City University. After a horrific car accident nearly cost him his life, he was saved when his father, scientist Silas Stone, used an Apokolitian Mother Box to reconstruct his body. In the process, Silas turned Victor into a human computer, organic with biomechatronic body parts. In other words, a Cyborg.”
Justice League, all set to hit the theaters on November 17, 2017 is directed by Zack Snyder, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amber Heard as Mera, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
