During Super Bowl last night, Warner Bros. finally released the first official trailer for The Flash after years of anticipation. As expected, the preview gave us our very first look at Michael Keaton's return as Batman, which is what fans have been waiting for ever since the news came that he is reprising the role.
Based on the trailer, it looks like Keaton is indeed going to be a key player in the film since we've seen him in a couple of action sequences and he will be helping the two Barry Allens on their journey. His suit is also the same as the one that he wore back when he was playing the role 30 years ago.
Besides Keaton's return as the Caped Crusader, the trailer also gave us a look at the return of Michael Shannon, reprising his role of the Man of Steel villain General Zod, who also seems to have a major role in the film. We also have a glimpse at Sasha Calle's role as Supergirl.

It is certainly exciting to see our first look at Keaton's return as Batman, especially since fans have been waiting for his return and see what he looks like in the suit 30 years after he last played him. It looks like he is still as awesome as he was and it's curious to see what he'll do throughout the film's duration.
The film's synopsis reads: "Worlds collide in when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to."
"That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian... albeit not the one he’s looking for," the synopsis continues. "Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?"
The cast also includes Ezra Miller, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdu, Kiersey Clemons, Antje Traue, and Ben Affleck. Andy Muschietti is directed the film while Christina Hodson wrote the screenplay.
