(June 16, 2023 – LOS ANGELES, CA) — WaterTower Music is elated to announce today’s release of the soundtrack to Warner Bros. Pictures’ film “The Flash”. Directed by Andy Muschietti (the “IT” films, “Mama”), “The Flash” is now in theaters.
“The Flash” serves as the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film, and sees Director Muschietti reunite with noted collaborator, two-time GRAMMY- and BAFTA-nominated composer Benjamin Wallfisch (the “IT” films, “Shazam,” “Blade Runner 2049” [with Hans Zimmer]), who created all of the music found on The Flash (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). Fans got an enthusiastic taste of the highly anticipated soundtrack over the past few weeks with the early release of four tracks: “Worlds Collide”, “Run”, “I Am Batman” and “Sounds About Right, Bruce, and can now hear the entire, 43-track soundtrack, which is currently available for digital purchase and streaming, and available as a preorder for Triple LP, Two-Color Vinyl and Double CD.
Benjamin Wallfisch discussed working with Andy Muschietti: “Andy has created something truly incredible with this movie, and as always I was honored to have been invited to be a part of his creative family. It’s not only one of the most spectacular and exciting superhero films ever made, everything is drawn together by a powerful emotional core which motivated the earliest sketches Andy and I worked on together, all the way back in 2020.”
Wallfisch further reflected on the film and the music of “The Flash.” “The movie is also of course a love letter to the legacy of DC, right back to its earliest origins, and one of the most exciting challenges for me was to celebrate that history, whilst still looking to the future with completely new material. I’d also like to highlight the incredible musicians who performed this music with such unbelievable virtuosity, fire and commitment. The movie challenged us to attempt the near-impossible, and at every turn our orchestra not only met but exceeded what we might have imagined. A huge thank you to Andy, Barbara and everyone at DC and Warner Bros. for this amazing journey.”

ABOUT “THE FLASH”
Warner Bros. Pictures presents “The Flash,” directed by Andy Muschietti. Ezra Miller reprises their role as Barry Allen in the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film. Worlds collide when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?
“The Flash” ensemble also includes rising star Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdú, Kiersey Clemons, Antje Traue and Michael Keaton. It is produced by Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco.
