Cameo appearance in The Flash movie 

Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, was rumoured to be making a surprise cameo appearance in The Flash movie last week, and the actress may have just confirmed the news with a New Year social media post. Gadot opted to celebrate the start of 2022 by posting a montage of photographs from each month of 2021, and images from July and August were included in that montage, implying that the star was working on the set of the future DC Multiverse film while filming on The Flash was still going on.

A shot from July, which can be found on Gadot’s official Instagram account, shows Gadot in a make-up chair, with eagle-eyed viewers noticing a man wearing a lanyard that appears to be from The Flash in the backdrop. As if that weren’t enough, Gadot is wearing her Wonder Woman tiara and hairpiece in her August photo, which seems to be a coincidence given that The Flash was filming between April and October, and speculation about Gadot’s cameo initially arose around that time.

 

Gadot’s role in The Flash movie 

Of course, we already know that Ben Affleck will reprise his role as Batman in The Flash for the final time, and that Supergirl will appear alongside Michael Keaton’s Batman, who will be revisiting the role after 30 years and appears to be continuing into the Batgirl film. Gadot was speculated to have a role in The Flash movie back when it was in its early stages of development in 2017, but there was never any confirmation. In June of last year, a promotional video for the film contained a shot of Wonder Woman standing alongside Batman, Supergirl, and The Flash, which was later removed. When you consider Gadot’s personal memories of the year, it seems like a safe bet that Wonder Woman will make a cameo when The Flash premieres at the end of the year.

While specific plot details on the film are scarce, as is the case with most superhero films these days, there have been numerous trailers and teasers implying that the film will contain multiverse and alternate world connections. Director Andy Muschietti has previously hinted that The Flash will be the start of something major for the DCEU, with the teaser implying that at least one Batman will die, other versions of The Flash will be there, and there will be many surprises for fans.

 

Multiverse expansion

In prior interviews, Muschietti remarked, “This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it delivers a plot that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic incarnations that we’ve seen previously are valid.” It’s inclusive in the sense that it says everything you’ve seen exists in the same unified multiverse as everything you’ll view.

This may seem very similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s current multiverse expansion, but whereas Marvel is pushing things deeper into the unknown, the question remains as to what DC will do with their voyage into the multiverse.
