DC’s The Flash is due in theatres this summer, with fans getting an exciting, teaser-filled trailer earlier this month. Ahead of the launch, Warner Bros. Pictures is going to screen the movie for CinemaCon 2023 attendees in April.
CinemaCon 2023, an annual convention for movie theatre owners, takes place on 24th-27th April in Las Vegas. The event usually sees first-look trailers and sizzle reels presented by studios. Variety reports that Warner Bros. will present a full screening of The Flash on the 25th in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. This will make it the first official presentation ahead of the movie’s release on 16th June.
Starring Ezra Miller as The Flash, it’ll include a heavy dose of Batman as both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton reprise their roles for the film. However, while it has an all-star cast, this latest instalment has been mired in controversy due to its main star.
A bumpy ride
Over the past few years, Miller has exhibited some troubling behaviour. This has lead to assault and abuse allegations – that they’ve put down to mental health issues. “Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in 2022. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behaviour. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
New DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran recently said that The Flash is “one of the greatest superhero movies ever made.” However, for Miller to continue they need to address their emotional issues.
Gunn and Safran, have killed off many projects like Wonder Woman 3 to usher in the new DC Studios era. And with it the new DC Universe with five films and five television projects in the works. The Flash managed to survive the cull and could be one of the biggest summer releases.
