Los Angeles, March 18 - DC Studios' upcoming superhero movie The Flash
is getting special treatment ahead of its June 16 release.
The buzz for this Ezra Miller-fronted flick is at an all-time high and those who have watched it, including DC co-head and filmmaker James Gunn, have called it "probably one of the greatest superhero movies ever made". And now, it has received ultimate praise from one of the biggest movie stars in the world, Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise is said to be an actor who is very hard to please but even he couldn't stop himself from raving about "The Flash" after reportedly watching it privately.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cruise has seen the movie and loved it so much that he called the movie's director, Andy Muschietti, to rave about it. It is said that the superstar had a meeting with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav in late February 2023, during which Zaslav mentioned how great the movie was.
After hearing great things from Zaslav about the movie, Cruise wished to see it Zaslav acquiesced to the request, and a copy of the movie was sent over to Cruise. THR reports that the actor watched the movie at his home in Beverly Hills and was so taken by what he saw. He then reached out to the director and said something to the effect that Flash is "everything you want in a movie" and "this is the kind of movie we need now".
"The Flash" stars Ezra Miller in the titular role of Barry Allen / The Flash along with Michael Keaton who is returning in the role of Batman. Ben Affleck is also on tap to return to the Batman role. After facing multiple delays, the movie is finally scheduled to release on June 16 this year.
