    “We Had To Choose”: ‘The Flash’ Director Andy Muschietti Reveals The Cameo He Regrets Leaving Out

    During a pivotal moment in ‘The Flash,’ the Scarlet Speedster gets to tweak the fabric of multiple realities. In doing so, he comes across alternate versions of the heroes he teams up with to fight General Zod. It’s an iconic moment for DC fandom, which was reminded of actors who’ve brought beloved comic characters to life.

    But ‘The Flash’ missed out on a more fulfilling fan service. Director Andy Muschietti recently talked about excluding Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman cameo. According to him, the pressure of sticking to their timeline was such that they had to cross out specific names. Lynda Carter’s cameo was the unfortunate casualty.

    ‘The Flash’ turned out to be a disappointing affair. But the audience loved the many cameos of the past versions of the film’s heroes. While speaking with Vanity Fair, the Muschietti siblings talked about a massive cameo they had to leave out from the final film. 

    Barbara Muschietti told the outlet, “The universes start colliding, and we had a lot more characters that we all know that we had to let go because there just wasn’t the time,”

    ‘The Flash’ director Andy Muschietti agreed that lack of time was a factor in being selective with the cameos. He added, ” We had to choose, we had to pick. Lynda Carter was one of them.”

    Cameos That Didn’t Make ‘The Flash’ 

    As Superman’s father Jor-El, Marlon Brando was supposed to cameo in ‘The Flash.’

    Despite ‘The Flash’ exploring multiple realities, there had to be some cameos that had to be abandoned. James Gunn discussed a scrapped scene of ‘The Flash’ with Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot as Superman and Wonder Woman. Michael Keaton’s Batman was also supposed to be in the scene. 

    A bunch of cameos just didn’t fit in the grand scheme. Andy Muschietti revealing Marlon Brando as Superman’s father Jor-El, was another missed opportunity. Burgess Meredith and Cesar Romero as Penguin and Joker from the 1960s Batman TV show were other cameos that were left out.
