‘The Flash’ Reimagined as a Film by Legendary Swedish Director Ingmar Bergman

In honor of the upcoming CW television series The Flash, New York City-based filmmaker Patrick Willems has reimagined the speedy DC Comics superhero through the lens of legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. The short is a black-and-white peek into the existential crises involved in being the costumed hero.

For a movie about the fastest man alive, the obvious choice to direct would be the filmmaker behind such classics as The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries and Scenes From a Marriage?

Willems also recently created a Tommy Wiseau-style Batman short and The Punisher as directed by Sergio Leone.
