Spider-Man: Homecoming

Flash began attending Midtown High alongside Peter Parker and Ned Leeds the former of whom he would constantly harass, due to Peter's higher IQ, and his tendency to make Flash look bad, as seen when Peter correctly answered a question that he got wrong.

Later that Friday, Flash would end up at Liz's party as the DJ. He would lead the crowd in an unfunny chant that would ultimately cause Peter to leave to investigate the arms deal.

After the Decathlon Nationals, Flash was keen to hog the trophy for himself, although as Michelle pointed out, he missed many of his questions. As the bomb in Ned Leeds' backpack goes off, Flash finds himself stuck in the elevator with his classmates. As the monument's security team manage to pry open the elevator doors and provide a escape. Flash immediately pushes his classmates out of the way and tells the security team to save his decathlon trophy first then himself, to the shock of his classmates. As he is lifted out, the elevator falls, only for Spider-Man to swoop in and save the group.

On the night of the Homecoming dance, Flash drives his date to the Midtown School of Science and Technology. On the way there, Spider-Man jumps on the hood of his car, asking Flash if he could borrow the car. Flash informs him that it is his father's car in truth but quickly relents and lets Spider-Man drive off. However, Flash became shocked when Spider-Man recklessly drove the sports car, driving it into a rack of bicycles.


Before it was revealed that Tony Revolori would portray Flash Thompson in Spider-Man Homecoming, it was shown that he would be playing a character named: Manuel instead, until obviously it was changed to Flash.
