“He’s been struck by the lightningthat’s the mythosbut he’s a human,” said Ezra Miller, who will be playing the character of Barry Allen. “He can run through walls, he can run across water, he can run so fast that he can move into another plane of frequency where there’s another reality.”

The ability to travel through alternate realities was not the only power of The Flash that was teased but also the ability to time travel.

“The thing about The Flash is the past isn’t just a thing he can think about, it’s an actual place he can visit,” said Johns.
