Stephen King Praises The Flash: A Unique Superhero Movie
Stephen King recently had the opportunity to attend a special screening of The Flash and has joined the ranks of those singing its praises. The film has been highly anticipated, and despite several hurdles and controversies surrounding its lead actor, Ezra Miller, its release is only a month away.
The Flash is directed by Andy Muschietti, inspired by the Flashpoint comic, and stars Ezra Miller as The Flash. It also features Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman after thirty years, and Ben Affleck in his last performance as Batman before the character’s reboot in the new DC cinematic universe.
Despite King not being a fan of superhero movies in general, he found The Flash to be “sincere, funny, and impressive.” King’s relationship with cinema is well established, with his works having inspired numerous adaptations to both the big and small screen. His storytelling abilities have transcended mediums and left lasting impressions.
While King has been critical of some adaptations of his work in the past, his relationship with cinema remains fruitful, and his status as a prominent figure in the world of horror is undeniable. The Flash is set to release on November 4th, and fans eagerly await its arrival after the praise it has received.
