All the DC references you missed
In The Flash, we see that Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen has to eat a ton of food to maintain true speed. If Barry isn’t eating tons of calories, the Flash can’t run. This concept comes straight out of the comics, where DC speedsters like Barry Allen and Wally West have often struggled to fill their empty stomachs at the worst of times. .
That’s just one of the many Easter eggs, DC references, and details you might have missed in Andy Muschietti’s The Flash. We will point out the only place where you can see Henry Cavill’s Superman, where Ezra Miller’s Flash got the idea to use that superhero name, the differences between the Batcycle in this film and the Batpod in the Nolan Batman trilogy, the references to the iconic DC crime family, the “baby shower” joke, and why Flash’s lightning in this movie is yellow even though it was blue in the other DCEU movies.
