Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot might have accidentally confirmed her role in Warner Bros. and DC Films’ The Flash.
As part of her New Year’s celebration post on Instagram, Gadot included a photo from every month of her 2021. Included in that round-up was a photo from July of the actor sitting in a makeup chair, with a man in the background wearing a lanyard that looks to be from The Flash. In the second photo, for August, Gadot is wearing her Wonder Woman tiara and Diana’s hair. The Flash was filmed in 2021 between the months of April and October.
Gadot’s role as Wonder Woman in The Flash was first rumored in 2017, though it has not been officially confirmed. However, a promo for the film that leaked online in June 2021 and has since been deleted, depicted a figure closely resembling Wonder Woman appearing with Flash, Batman and Supergirl, who will be played by Sasha Calle in her DCEU debut. This would also confirm previous reports that state Gadot was slated to cameo in the film in a small, supporting role.
If true, Wonder Woman won’t be the only Justice League member to appear in The Flash, with Ben Affleck set to reprise his Bruce Wayne/Batman role for a small cameo, alongside Michael Keaton’s Batman from 1989’s Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns. However, Henry Cavill will not be reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent. Ezra Miller, who will reprise his role as Barry Allen/The Flash, who appeared as the character with Gadot, Cavill and Affleck in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
Director Andy Muschietti confirmed in October of this year that filming had officially wrapped on The Flash. Around that time, Muschietti confirmed during a panel at DC FanDome in China that the upcoming film will hold its fair share of surprises. “We can tell you there are surprises, we cannot reveal what they are,” the director said. “But it will probably blow your socks off…The less we talk about it the better. There’s excitement behind the cameras about those surprises. You better not know them until you see them on the big screen.”
While details surrounding the plot remain scarce, The Flash will deal heavily with the multiverse and explore alternate realities, indicated by the return of Keaton as well as an evil doppelgänger version of The Flash, which will also be played by Miller. In an interview last year, Muschietti explained that this storyline will be the foundation for future movies about DC properties.
“This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it presents a story that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations that we’ve seen before are valid,” Muschietti said at the time. “It’s inclusive in the sense that it is saying all that you’ve seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”
