When Bruce Wayne shows up in Barry Allen's second-favorite chair in "Justice League," it appears he'll be doing so in Central City.
Although recent speculation leaned toward Keystone City serving as The Flash's stomping grounds in the DC Extended Universe, a behind-the-scenes photo confirms audiences will indeed see Central City in director Zack Snyder's film. You can't miss the sign.
The sign in this instance is the one marking the city limits, seen behind "Justice League" cinematographer Fabian Wagner, posted by the British Society of Cinematographers. Beyond that is another sign cautioning drivers to "Reduce Speed Ahead," sure to draw a knowing chuckle from fans of the Scarlet Speedster.
First appearing in 1956, in DC Comics' "Showcase" #4, Central City is the traditional home of the second Flash, Barry Allen, not to mention several notable members of the hero's rogues gallery. Typically depicted as somewhere in the Midwest (usually Missouri), the city is the primary setting of The CW's "The Flash," and has been featured on "Superman: The Animated Series," and on the animated "Justice League," "Justice League Unlimited" and "Young Justice."
Keystone City, home of the Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick, was at one point located on Earth-Two, existing in the same geographic space as Earth-One's Central City, separated by a dimensional barrier. But since the events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the two have been portrayed as neighboring "twin cities."
Opening Nov. 17, “Justice League” stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Raymond Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen and J.K. Simmons.
