Special guest Brogan Luke Bouwhis joins us this week to review The Flash, which stars Ezra Miller as the fastest person alive…at avoiding crimes? Anyway, the DCEU is currently being taken over by James Gunn, which makes The Flash a bit of a holdover from another era. That’s probably why it has plenty of other eras inside its runtime, because yes, it’s a multiverse plot. Comic book movies have no other choice these days. We give our thoughts on the movie, which certainly Vary Allen. We then open up the show for some spoiler discussion (with plenty of warning) then finish the show with the Rotten Tomatoes Game.
The Flash was directed by Andy Muschietti (the It movies) and written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey). In addition to Miller, the cast includes Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdú, Kiersey Clemons, Antje Traue, Michael Keaton, and plenty of spoilery cameos we won’t give away. The film opened nationwide on June 16 through Warner Bros and has a 144-minute runtime.
Our intro music this week is “Gato” by TyLuv. & Strehlow.

When his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry Allen becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. In order to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?
