Mortal Kombat composer Benjamin Wallfisch will score The Flash film
Warner Bros. recently confirmed the amazing news that Michael Keaton will indeed return to reprise his role as Batman in Andy Muschietti’s The Flash, but we’ve also learned (via THR) that Mortal Kombat composer Benjamin Wallfisch is set to score the comic book flick.
Wallfisch previously worked with Muschietti on IT: Chapter One and IT: Chapter Two and also worked on DC’s Shazam! as well as The Invisible Man, Hidden Figures and A Cure For Wellness. His new score for Mortal Kombat is available to stream right now and features an awesome new rendition of the popular “Techno Syndrome,” or “Mortal Kombat theme song.”

The Flash, which saw its most recent draft scripted by Birds of Prey’s Christina Hodson, will adapt the iconic “Flashpoint” storyline and see the Scarlet Speedster (played by Ezra Miller) travel back in time in an effort to prevent his mother’s murder, only to inadvertently splinter the future into a new timeline with Keaton’s 30-years-older Batman protecting it.
Alongside Miller, who has portrayed the hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the theatrical Justice League, Suicide Squad and The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, and Keaton, the cast for the film will see the return of Kiersey Clemons as Barry Allen’s love interest Iris West and Ben Affleck’s iteration of The Dark Knight, as well as Ron Livingston stepping in for Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen and up-and-comer Sasha Calle as Supergirl.
The Flash has been in development since 2014, with various storylines considered before landing on Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert’s “Flashpoint” in 2017 and taking on the same title before reverting back to its current title and saw a number of directors come and go, including Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Rick Famuyiwa (The Mandalorian) and John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (Game Night).
The Flash is currently set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022.
