The Flash's world premiere just finished up at CinemaCon, and those in attendance have been sharing their initial reactions to Twitter.
This movie has been majorly hyped up by those who caught earlier screenings (and by the studio), with some hailing it as the "greatest superhero film of all time." Do these reactions follow suit? Actually, for the most part, yes!
Some are a little less hyperbolic (including our own Rohan Patel's), but it does sound like WBD/DC Studios has a potentially major hit on their hands... as long as they can navigate the Ezra Miller situation!
We're still adding the Tweets as they come in, but take a look at what we have below.
"Directed by Andy Muschietti, The Flash features Barry Allen traveling back in time in order to change events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to help. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian…albeit not the one he’s looking for.
Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?"
The Flash is produced by Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco, with a screenplay by Christina Hodson, an a screen story by John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein and Joby Harold, based on characters from DC. Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Double Dream/a Disco Factory production of an Andy Muschietti film.
The Flash will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures and is set to open in theaters in North America on June 16, 2023 and internationally beginning 14 June 2023.
