According to Comic Bookthe filmmaker said that:
‘Like a superhero movie,’The Flash‘ is a great action adventure, but what really drew me to the project was its emotional charge. The emotional conflict that Barry carries from his trip to the past was very convenient for me.”
“There is a very strong message behind it. I love time travel plots and all the elements that go along with that idea, but the heart of the story is a boy looking for his mother, and that’s what attracted me, that’s what gave me that little emotional push.”
As fans already know, Nora Allen died mysteriously when Barry was just a child, and his father was accused of murder.
After years of trying to prove his father’s innocence, Barry sees a chance to right the tragedy by realizing he has the power to turn back time.
