Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel Gets Compared To The Flash

With Man of Steel being 10 years old, the movie indeed has certain VFX and CGI capabilities which were way ahead of their time. Although the movie received average ratings due to its altered ending and Snyder’s different directorial style, one thing that the movie didn’t lack was CGI and VFX.

For his role as Batman, Michael Keaton was asked to reprise his role. As per the veteran actor. the script was too tough for him and thus, he had to read the whole script thrice to understand the complex storyline of The Flash as revealed by The Hollywood Reporter.

“I had to read it more than three times to go, ‘Wait, how does this work?’ They had to explain that to me several times. By the way, I’m not being arrogant, I hope, about this. I don’t say it like, ‘I’m too groovy.’ I’m stupid. There’s a lot of things I don’t know about. And so, I don’t know, I just kind of figured it out, but this was different.”

Well, whatever the case may be, The Flash, starring Ezra Miller and Michael Keaton received a rating of 6.7/10 on IMDB and an average of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes. The 2023 film is available to stream on Max in the U.S.
