Upcoming superhero film stuns critics
And 'Maisel' creators set new show at Amazon
What to know
First reactions call The Flash one of the “best superhero movies ever”… And that’s not coming from just one reaction, several people are going with the highest of superlatives for DC’s next movie. As with all early reactions, take them with a grain of salt as the critics selected tend to be sweeter than the consensus that comes later. THR didn’t include a single negative reaction in its roundup, but I found at least one critic willing to call the last hour of the movie “terrible.” That said, these reactions are far more glowing than recent early responses to comic book movies like Ant-Man and Shazam. Speaking of Shazam, DC really needs The Flash to live up to the hype. ⚡️
