The Flash had a ton of controversial cameos, but it has been revealed that one involving Christopher Reeves was not authorized by his estate.

The Flash, one of the last DC films to come out before James Gunn and Peter Safran took over the studio, was incredibly controversial due to its lead actor Ezra Miller and CGI effects.

One of the most talked about aspects of the movie was undoubtedly of numerous cameos like Nicholas Cage as Superman and Adam West as Batman that were shown during the climax of the film.

Though the cameos were sanctioned by the studios the shows and movies that produced them, it seems like the actors themselves weren’t asked to sign off on it as the estate of Christopher Reeves, who played Superman, revealed that they had no say in his likeness being used.

The trio were asked about their thoughts on their father’s cameo in The Flash as Warner Bros. controversially used CGI to recreate Reeves’ likeness as Superman as part of the movie’s multiverse.

All three of the kids revealed that they still haven’t seen The Flash and had absolutely no involvement whatsoever in his cameo.

Though Reeves was best known for being Superman, Will Reeves revealed that it was not the role he was proudest of stating, “In our hometown in Bedford, New York…the local movie theater went through a rebrand a few years ago. The person in charge of that shift reached out to me and said they’d love to have me screen a film of my choice of my dad’s. I responded, ‘Sure, but not Superman. We’re going to do ‘Remains of the Day.’”

“He got to show a completely different side of himself,” Reeves continued, “I knew how proud he was of that. Not that he wasn’t proud of Superman…but if he were here he wouldn’t choose Superman, he’d choose [this film]. I don’t think about the Superman films as much as I do about the swings he got took beyond this larger-than-life role.”
