‘The Flash’ Is Getting Killed All Over Again As Fans React To High-Res DC Cameos

The Flash is getting dunked on all over again! Why is that? Because DCEU’s worst-ever flop is available now on digital, and that also means high-res video of some of the terrible CG cameos.

The entire Speed Force sequence, featuring the…well, let’s just call it a “busy” interpretation of The Flash’s power source, is online and people are killing it on social media. In particular, the Nicolas Cage scene featuring the actor suited up as what appears to be a zombie Superman.

Look, I actually like the film and I can admit Cage looks fucking weird and like Bizarro just got dug up out of the ground. The CG throughout is pretty awful, and the multiverse cameos chosen don’t even make much sense within the context of the movie, not that very many people would know that. It’ll be interesting to see if people give it a shot now that it can be watched comfortably at home. Probably not. James Gunn’s DCU isn’t far behind and all of this can be forgotten.
