The Flash is DCEU’s highly anticipated movie that was recently released in theaters. The film promised viewers to bring back various characters from the DCEU for its multiverse plot. The film starring Ezra Miller saw the return of Michael Keaton’s Bruce Wayne, Sasha Calle’s Kara Zor-El, with Ben Affleck’s Batman. The DC film has a surprising appearance at the climax, which teases of including the oldest superhero team.

The Flash‘s finale features a covert reference to DC’s richer mythology when a multiverse-specific Jay Garrick makes an appearance. The closeness of the first Flash to a traditional version of Superman shows that the two live in the same universe, which may be a hint to a Justice Society of America from the Golden Age.

Jay Garrick has a long history in the DC Universe; in fact, he existed before the publication of DC Comics. He was also a founder member of the first superhero squad, the Justice Society of America. Garrick and the other Justice Society members have occasionally been dropped from the current continuity, but stills have a connection with JSA. Black Adam introduced a contemporary JSA to the DCEU, and now The Flash has a cameo of Jay Garrick linking the two.
