‘The Flash,’ starring Ezra Miller, is now playing in theaters. The film is like being forced to end the Snyderverse with Barry Allen. Upon watching the film, you find yourself questioning the point of Henry Cavill‘s Superman fighting General Zod, battling Doomsday, and the Justice League saving the world by fighting Steppenwolf. Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran did well to remove Snyderverse references from the upcoming films with ‘The Flash’. See how the film connects the DCU.
Ezra Miller’s performance in ‘The Flash’ is incredibly intense, leaving viewers with a powerful impression. Sasha Calle‘s portrayal of Kara Zor-El/Supergirl and Michael Keaton‘s return as Bruce Wayne/Batman are standout highlights that steal the spotlight. However, you find yourself questioning the purpose behind including Michael Shannon’s General Zod in the film, as it may seem to lack a substantial impact on the overall storyline. Read our review.

There is one post-credits scene in the film, which is a waste of time to watch. Just get up and out after the film. You don’t have to wait for the post-credits.
The Flash, directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Christina Hodson, the plot is based on the comic book storyline “Flashpoint,” and follows: Worlds collide when the Flash uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change the events of the past. However, when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, he becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation. With no other superheroes to turn to, the Flash looks to coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian—albeit not the one he’s looking for.
Is ‘The Flash’ Film Worth Watching?
No, ‘The Flash’ is a film that is more like a copy of the “Flashpoint” comics. There is nothing new to watch in the film instead of the Synderverse ending.
