The Flash movie is reportedly just as good as Christopher Nolan’s 2008 The Dark Knight movie, which is very interesting to me. This news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter, and I have to say that this Flash movie sounds like it could be one of the best comic book movies we’ve seen come out of DC for a very long time.
So, what’s going on, and why are people saying that the upcoming DC film is just as good as Nolan’s The Dark Knight? Well, it all has to do with The Hollywood Reporter’s article in which they reveal that the movie is scoring very well with test audiences. The movie is actually reaching scores that haven’t been reported during test screenings since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight movie.

Many people believe that the Nolan Batman films are still the best DC Comics movies ever made. Nolan made Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and then rounded it all off with The Dark Knight Rises. Now, I think that Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are truly brilliant movies. I’m not so keen on The Dark Knight Rises, but I still think it’s one of the best DC movies released to date.
We’ve now got Mushietti’s DC Comics film coming out which stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. He first played the role in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. We then saw him turn up in Suicide Squad (very briefly) and he was then in 2017’s Justice League movie. He was OK in all of those movies, but it wasn’t until Warner Bros. Pictures finally agreed to release Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League last year. That was when we got to see the version of the character that Miller and Snyder wanted us to see.
We’re now going to get to see Miller play the DC Comics character in Andy Mushietti’s film, and I think this will be the quintessential version of the character. However, there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the movie, specifically its star, Ezra Miller. Miller’s been in the news a lot over the past few months, and people have been worried that their antics might result in Warner Bros cancelling the movie. However, it sounds like the movie’s just too good for Warner Bros to cancel.

Now, back to Nolan’s Batman movies. The movies starred the likes of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Cillian Murphy and Gary Oldman. They were a huge hit with critics and audiences alike. If you take a look at the movie’s ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, Batman Begins currently has an 84% critics rating and a 94% audience rating. We then saw The Dark Knight in 2008, which starred Heath Ledger as The Joker, and he went on to win the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. That movie was a huge hit, and it scored incredibly well on Rotten Tomatoes. It got a 94% certified fresh rating.
The Dark Knight Rises was Nolan’s final DC Comics movie, and it was easily his worst one, but it still did pretty well with critics and audiences. The movie has an 87% critics and 90% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It starred Tom Hardy as Bane, and he was pretty good in the role, but the film had some pretty gaping plot holes that I just couldn’t get over. Maybe that’s just me. But all of this has me very excited to see Ezra Miller and Andy Mushietti’s upcoming DC Comics movie.
