Excitement is building among DC Comics fans as The Flash, featuring Ezra Miller in the iconic titular role, prepares to hit the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, which has access to tracking data, The Flash is projected to open in the $70 million range.

Industry insiders suggest that the projected opening of $70 million is a soft start for The Flash. However, with three weeks remaining until its release, Warner Bros. has ample time to maximize its marketing efforts and generate even more interest and awareness for its latest DC Universe movie.

Early buzz surrounding The Flash has been nothing short of extraordinary, with Hollywood critics and insiders already hailing it as one of the best comic book movies of all time. With the clock ticking, Warner Bros. is expected to launch an aggressive, final marketing push for the movie.

In The Flash, Barry Allen travels back in time to save his mother, which creates an alternate timeline known as the Flashpoint Paradox. This decision has serious consequences for Barry and the rest of the world, as he must navigate this new reality while also facing off against villains like General Zod from Man of Steel.

The Flash’s DC Universe future

Warner Bros. Discovery already has a script for a potential sequel to The Flash, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the man behind the two Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran did not discuss the Flash sequel during their DC Universe presentation.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
