Warner Bros. has released a behind-the-scenes video for The Flash offering a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Dark Flash battle scene at the end of the movie. It also highlights the nightmarish design of the Dark Flash, which was all done practically.
Director Andy Muschietti breaks down the scene and explains why he wanted to have Dark Flash represented through practical effects instead of CGI, explaining that he wanted the villain to have a tangible presence in the movie.
“This is the conclusion of the plot and it’s big and it’s bombastic and it’s very emotional. I wanted Dark Flash to be a monster, not only psychologically but also visually. There was a lot of work put into it from the costume department in combination with the stunts, makeup, hair and the actors, obviously.”
The clip also shows off various scenes of Dark Flash and Barry Allen fighting on a sound stage, and it also shares some of the concept art showing some alternate character designs. Enjoy the video!
