The Flash trailer begins with Bruce Wayne warning Barry Allen/The Flash that time travel comes with consequences, setting up their team-up against Reverse-Flash (Eobard Thawne). We get a brief glimpse of “Batfleck” in action with his new suit before he is whisked away by Reverse-Flash in a portal created by the Speed Force. It seems that it is up to Barry Allen and Bruce Wayne to save the world from Thawne’s destructive plans.

This causes an immediate thrill in viewers who have been waiting for years to witness Batfleck in action with his updated suit. It’s clear from the trailer that this iteration of Bruce Wayne has learned his lessons, as he calmly explains Barry’s mistakes but still musters the strength required to fight crime once again.
