The Flash movie Ezra Miller

Deadline has a rundown of The Flash trailer where I'm actually not too sure if the description is right as their report claims the footage includes a younger Superman, which actually could be the Sasha Calle Supergirl, and it's also claimed the Michael Keaton Batman is seen riding the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batpod from The Dark Knight movies, so bear that in mind. A Twitter user also posted the following info. It should also be said it's being pointed out that this trailer is heavy on Batman, which follows the recent arrests of Ezra Miller, so it could be possible The Flash movie actually becomes more of a Michael Keaton Batman movie.

There’s more Batman lore in the trailer as we see the Caped Crusader’s mansion and his secret library full of his suits. Oh, he’s also on his motorcycle, but it’s the one from the Christopher Nolan films.

Also spotted, a young Superman.

“Time has a pattern,” Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) ponders in the trailer. He is seen crying, looking as though he’s embracing his mother.

The trailer climaxes in Flash’s recruiting of Keaton’s Dark Knight.

“Are you in?” asks Allen.

The trailer finishes with Michael Keaton stating, "You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts."

Black Adam Dwayne Johnson

The presentation first teased that Dwayne Johnson wasn't at CinemaCon, but then Johnson surprised everyone and came to the stage along with Quintessa Swindell (Maxine) and Noah Centineo (Atom Smasher).

“We are positioned nicely to create something different,” Johnson said. “The hierarchy of power in the DC universe is about to change. We will do our job well from a marketing standpoint. The world is going to be ready.”

The Black Adam‘s trailer opens on a spaceship flying against a snowy mountain landscape. Pierce Brosnan’s Dr. Fate says, “Black Adam, what are the powers that have been given to you? Loving but heartache?”

Black Adam says that he was born a slave, “then I was reborn a God.” Black Adam can be the savior of the world, or it’s enemy. We see him destroying helicopters and coming in contact with what looks to be mercenaries. They’re scared as he catches a rocket. Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman shows up to face Black Adam, telling him “There are heroes and villains; heroes don’t kill people.”

“Well, I do” says Black Adam.

Aquaman 2 Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa appeared in a taped message and introduced director James Wan who appeared on stage and said he was “stoked to have the band back together” and added, “It’ll be the best movie of the year.”

Via Deadline:

Wan talked about the new technology he was using in the movie, putting 100 cameras on the actors and capturing their performance and then putting a 3D spin on it.

“It frees me up to do other things,” said Wan.

“I’m still in the midst of my director’s cut,” Wan told Tyler before showing off a sizzle reel that showed Black Manta coming to greater power. Lots of swirly, octopus-like underwater machines driven by the Aqua people here.

Wan said the return to Atlantis will continue the story and world that was created in first film and “take it to the next level.” That’s with “these new different kingdoms and new intense characters.”

In a video, Momoa echoed that “the characters coming in are pretty intense. Nothing else I’ve ever been a part of that’s like this.”

Worth a mention is that no footage of Amber Heard as Mera was shown, which is probably due to the Johnny Depp trial.

Update: WB pushes back the release date by a few days to avoid Avatar 2.

Zachary Levi, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Asher Angel along with Helen Mirren who plays the villain Hespera appeared at the presentation.

Levi said it was “super dreamy getting the gang back together” and promised the original’s themes would remain in the sequel as he continued, “We don’t want to veer from the magic we were able to find in the first movie, balancing action, comedy, drama and heart. That’s a massive part of what people connected to in the first movie.”

Angel, who plays young Billy Batson, said, “The last time everyone saw Billy he was a kid, and he’s grown up and matured. I would say adulthood is on the horizon and it’s scary because he doesn’t know what’s going to happen to him. That weighs pretty heavily on him and he’s trying to enjoy the moment and, hey, have these superpowers.”

Mirren added, “The most wonderful crazy family that I’ve had the honor to be a small part of. You just have to hold your nose and jump into the deep end and allow the whirlwind to take you.”

Via Deadline:

The footage shown kicked off with Shazam dining in Paris with what appears to be Wonder Woman, whom he’s wooing, suggesting they could be known as the “Hottie Goddies” or “Shezam,” but it’s actually Djimon Hounsou’s Wizard who’s arrived to tell Shazam he must “fight for your family, fight for the world.”
