A “creative” movie debut for The Flash
Early critic reactions to The Flash are praising the film for its inventive take on a concept like the multiverse. Fans hoped that the movie would attempt to do this, as the plot will see Barry Allen go back in time to save his mother and accidentally create a ripple effect that will significantly change the timeline. The Flashpoint story is a very creative chapter for DC so hopes were high that it would resonate in the Scarlet Speedster’s first live-action movie.
Fandom’s Eric Goldman applauded it for featuring some “creative moments” he felt that he “hadn’t seen in a million other superhero movies”, adding that the film had him smiling from start to finish.
Brandon Davis of ComicBook.com also praised the movie for being “super inventive both visually and in storytelling”, revealing that it features some “solid surprises” and that he’s eager to watch it again.
As for The Flash himself, audiences were full praise for Ezra Miller’s performance, specifically as they play two versions of Barry Allen in the movie. Scott Menzel calls them “the heart and soul of the film” while Collider’s Steve Weintraub praises their performance.
Sasha Calle’s Supergirl will be a fan-favorite
There was a lot of love for the debut of Sasha Calle’s DCEU version of Supergirl. Kara Zor-El is already a popular character in the comics and on TV after the success of the CBS/CW series Supergirl, but how would she fare on the big screen?
Menzel refers to Calle’s Girl of Steel as one of the many “very good” aspects of the movie, while Slash Film’s Jenna Busch calls her “awesome”, also pointing out thats she wants “to see more of her”. Game Spot’s Chris Hayner is also a fan, calling Supergirl his “new favorite superhero”.
We can’t wait to see her in action!
