It’s for a good reason: this line is a call back to one of the best scenes in the first Tim Burton Batman movie. Just before their climactic final battle at the top of a Gotham City cathedral, Bruce first faces off with Jack Nicholson’s Joker inside Vicki Vale’s (Kim Basinger) apartment. Grabbing a metal fire poker, Bruce pretends to be Vicki’s wealthy, dim-witted beau and threatens an amused Clown Prince of Crime.

“You wanna get nuts?” asks a clearly in-over-his-head Bruce. The Joker simply pulls out a gun and shoots the rich bozo in the chest, but not before asking Bruce a question of his own: “You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?” It’s a moment that unlocks a pivotal memory for Bruce. Joker’s words just before he shoots him were the same ones spoken by his parents’ killer on that fateful night so many years ago. Jack Napier, now an insane killer clown with a taste for poison gas, was the same man who killed Thomas and Martha Wayne all along! Stopping the Joker has now become personal for Batman.

Whether or not you liked the “Joker created Batman, who then created Joker” twist back in ’89, there’s no arguing that this pivotal scene is one of the most memorable in DC movie history. It’s no surprise, then, that The Flash, a movie whose entire selling point seems to be ’90s Batman nostalgia, has found a way to bring back the scene’s best line.

But what we really want to know is whether The Flash will nod to the other best line from that scene…

The Flash premieres in theaters on June 23, 2023.
