The Flash Plot:
The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Batman (Ben Affleck) investigate the murder of Flash’s mother Nora (Maribel Verdú) to prove the innocence of Flash’s father Henry (Ron Livingston). Batman informs Flash that he assembled the Justice League after receiving a message from the future from an older version of Flash. Flash knows it is dangerous to alter the timeline, but is inspired by Batman’s revelation to travel back in time to warn his parents of their fate so they can avoid it. Flash instead breaches the dimensional barrier and ends up in a parallel universe where the government is hunting meta-humans. Flash meets an older Batman (Michael Keaton), who decides to help him return to his own universe before the dimensional breach that he accidentally created destroys both realities.
The government deploys Mirror Master (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), the daughter of one of Batman’s old enemies, to eliminate Flash and Batman. The Black Flash, the avatar of the Speed Force, is also after Flash for endangering the Multiverse. During the mission, Flash and Batman rescue Kara (Sasha Calle), the daughter of Superman (Christopher Reeve), who has died. Kara had been captured by the government, and she helps Flash and Batman defeat Mirror Master. Flash is too late and the realities begin to collapse. He races into the Speed Force, defeats Black Flash, and meets another Flash (Grant Gustin), who encourages him to save both worlds. Flash resets the timeline by merging the two universes into a new reality where the Supergirl and the older Batman now exist alongside heroes such as Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Flash proves his father’s innocence in court and Henry is released from prison. Batman decides to assemble and lead the heroes of the new world. Kara becomes Supergirl to honor her father.
