The Flash premieres in movie theaters this summer and it’s already receiving some strong reactions after its first screening at CinemaCon. What are the critics saying?
It’s an interesting time for the DC Universe. The DCEU of old is getting set to fade out of existence and make way for Peter Safran and James Gunn’s new DC Universe. For that to happen, The Flash must succeed.
The upcoming DC movie has been in development for a long time but it will finally speed onto the big screen this June. It’s one of the last relics of the DCEU, but its adaptation of the iconic Flashpoint arc will allow it to reboot the shared universe of superheroes, phasing out anything that didn’t work and introducing (or reintroducing) what does.
There has been a lot of talk about The Flash in recent years. Early reports suggested it could be one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, and you would think they would be true given that Warner Bros. Discovery has been determined to release this movie in spite of Ezra Miller’s legal troubles and their own recent cancellation spree.
So does it live up to the hype? The movie had its first screening at CinemaCon and it’s received quite the response. Based on those early reactions and reviews, here’s what you can expect.
