The fans were surprised when James Gunn called The Flash one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. However, this claim is now backed by Tom Cruise, who reportedly watched the movie months before it hits the theatres. Reliable sources tell that Cruise loved the movie and it contains all the essential characteristics that we need from the present movies.
The Flash would be the most important movie in the DCU because it will reset the franchise, initiating James Gunn’s universe. Moreover, in the first standalone movie, the speedster would be going on a multiversal adventure, meeting alternate versions of heroes and villains. The movie showcases new actors as well as old cast members from the Snyderverse.

Tom Cruise Enjoyed Watching The Flash
According to The Hollywood Reporter, reliable sources tell them that Tom Cruise has already watched Andy Muschieti’s The Flash and he called the filmmaker to praise his work. The Mission Impossible actor loved it and said that it is “everything you want in a movie, the kind of movie we need now.” These remarks by the actor are important for the success of the movie because Cruise is known around the world for his dedication to work, and the movies he makes.
In addition to the actor’s comments, the same sources tell that the Top Gun actor had a meeting with David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery to ask if he can watch the movie. The CEO agreed to the actor’s request and sent a copy of the movie to Cruise’s home in Beverly Hills.
But an insider told how this was not a casual delivery because the messenger who delivered the film to Tom Cruise stayed until he finished watching the movie. After the actor was done, he returned the movie to the messenger who returned it to the studio.

What Did James Gunn and Peter Safran Say About The Flash?
After James Gunn and Peter Safran were appointed as the co-CEOs of DC Studios, the pair unveiled their plans for DCU where they stated that they will be rebooting the franchise to have a blank canvas for themselves.
Gunn did not have much faith in other movies except for Andy Muschieti’s The Flash, as he stated that it is “probably one of the greatest superhero movies ever made.” Moreover, the Suicide Squad director has immense faith in the cast of the movie and he would like them to reprise their respective role in his DCU.
Even though Ezra Miller was part of some controversial incidents, Peter Safran assured that the actor is on a better path. He continued saying that Miller is committed to their recovery, and they would talk about Miller’s future when the time is right.
“Ezra is completely committed to their recovery. We are fully supportive of that journey they are on right now. When the time is right, when they are ready to have that discussion, we will all figure out what’s the best path forward. But right now, they are completely focused on their recovery. And in our conversation with them, in the last couple of months, it feels like they are making enormous progress.”
When James Gunn showed his faith in The Flash, fans felt that his words were empty. However, the movie looks quite interesting after the trailer was released and fans saw some familiar faces in the DCU while pointing out some easter eggs.
