Man of Steel trends as DCEU fans react to Zod and Faora’s return for The Flash

Man of Steel trends as DCEU fans react to Zod and Faora’s return for The Flash

The Flash is once again making headlines but this time, alongside Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel. A new movie preview rundown from Warner Bros. has made a startling revelation that General Zod (Michael Shannon) and his second-in-command, Faora (Antje Traue) are also part of the DC’s speedster standalone movie but no Superman.

The “hierarchy” of DC Cinematic Universe will soon change thanks to the multiverse narrative being introduced in The Flash, directed by Andy Muschietti with Ezra Miller reprising his speedster role from Justice League.

It’s a known fact that the time-traveling “Flashpoint” comics’ inspired upcoming flick will introduce a new superhero donning the red cape through Sasha Calle’s Supergirl. And if Warner Bros. UK 2022 movie preview is believed to be true, then Supergirl will face Commander Zod and Faora from 2013’s Man of Steel. A brief description for The Flash movie is also included and states:

Ezra Miller stars as Barry Allen, AKA The Flash, who pushes the limits of his superpowers in the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film.

Zod and Faora, the main villains from Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel were killed off by the end of the movie. Yet it seems like the two could appear either as a backstory for Supergirl or as a result of Barry Allen messing up the timeline.

Unfortunately, it also suggests the studio could retcon the origins of the original Superman played by Cavill.   Disappointed fans are already sharing their frustration over WB’s choice in changing the DCEU narrative. Added, news of Michael Keaton playing as The Batman in Batgirl movie has all but confirmed the two big leads from DC’s trinity won’t be a part of the main continuity. Nonetheless, it’s only fuelled fans’ desire to see The Witcher actor back as Superman. Readers can check out their tweets below.

The Flash also stars Ron Livington, Kiersey Clemons and Ben Affleck reprising as The Batman. Though the 49-year-old star won’t have a large presence in the film and will possibly be his last appearance as the Dark Knight.

The Flash is scheduled to release on November 4, 2022.
