‘The Flash’ Max Premiere Date Revealed As Film Ends Its Disastrous Theatrical Run

Well, that’s it for The Flash! The failed DC Comics movie, which DC Studios co-chief James Gunn touted as one of the greatest superhero movies ever, has ended its theatrical run with just $268M worldwide. Oof. That’s more than $100M less than Black Adam, but considerably more than Shazam: Fury of the Gods, although all of them are bombs.

Following this news, Warner Bros. has revealed when The Flash will hit Max streaming. The timing is ironic, because the reason for the film’s failure is that a lot of folks decided to just wait and watch it at home. Well, now they can on Max, next week on August 25th.

Call me crazy, but I think in the long run The Flash will be more appreciated.The problems of star Ezra Miller plagued it from the start, keeping audiences away who didn’t want to support them.

It’s possible some aspects of the film will carry over into Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU, like Sasha Calle’s Supergirl which received high marks from fans.
