While DC is embroiled in controversy amid movie cancellations and delays and numerous other issues, the test screening reports of The Flash come as a relief for the studio. According to reports, the movie is amazing and even garnered scores leveling the iconic The Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan. This is a very big thing for Warner Bros. Discovery especially after they trashed the nearly completed Batgirl due to extremely poor scores which also led them to several criticisms from the fans.
The Flash comes as a savior of DC
Recently Batgirl was trashed by Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav due to bad test screening scores. The studio had to face widespread criticism who said that Zaslav doesn’t care about the people involved with the project. On the other hand, a wide range of audience was fully against the Flash actor Ezra Miller reprising their role after all the misdeeds they had done. But now it can be understood why DC stood strong to their grounds on releasing this movie in theaters.
The Dark Knight trilogy is considered one of the best superhero franchises ever. According to some reviews, the movie is a perfect combination of DCEU’s Shazam and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The Shazam-like humor is perfectly blended with a gripping storyline of the movie and it doesn’t even spoil the seriousness anywhere.
I have spoke to 2 friends who has seen Flash.
One friend was mixed on it, however they want to see the film again, it’s a very watchable.
While the other friend, who saw the upcoming 3 DC films, said it was their favorite, they loved it, and said it’s SHAZAM meets ZSJL.

It is also revealed that along with receiving the best test screening scores among DCEU movies, the movie also featured many surprise elements in the storyline and the plot. With the appearance of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck confirmed, this movie is reportedly going to reboot the main timeline of DCEU. Now it will be interesting to see if the movie really keeps up with the early responses.
The sins of Ezra Miller
Even though the Flash scored amazing results, it is still a fact that Ezra Miller is not at all clean and still involved in a whole lot of issues. Ezra Miller has been the prime focus of numerous arrests and has been subjected to numerous controversies due to their deeds.
From strangling incidents to burglary charges and the most controversial farmhouse incidents where they were reportedly housing a woman and her three kids, there’s literally everything enough to ruin their career. Warner Bros. Discovery is also reported to have their eyes set on somebody else after this movie.
Now it will be interesting to watch if these scores can help in the success of the Andy Muschietti directorial despite the bad popularity of the main actor that’s linked with it.
