In Finland, you can see The Flash in cinemas from 14 June.
The long-awaited The Flash will finally be released next month, but only a select few in the world have seen it. One of these is horror maestro Stephen King, who published his first impressions of the film on Twitter.
“I don’t usually like superhero movies, but this one felt special. It’s warmhearted, funny, and engaging. I loved it,” writes King.
(In the post’s comments, a user asks DC boss James Gunn to confirm the accuracy of King’s comments, and Gunn replies: “Absolutely true”.)
I got to an advance screening of The Flash today. As a rule I don’t care much for superhero movies, but this one is special. It’s heartfelt, funny and eye-catching. I loved it.

Here is a synopsis of The Flash directed by Andy Muschietti:
“Worlds collide in The Flash when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time and change the events of the past. But when Barry’s attempt to save his family alters the future as well, he finds himself trapped in a reality where General Zod has returned and threatens total destruction, but is determined to help that world. There is no superhero. until Barry manages to persuade a very different Batman to return to real action and rescue a captured Kryptonian… though that’s not exactly what he’s looking for. In the end, Barry must keep pace for his life in order to save the alien world and return to the familiar future. But is even the ultimate sacrifice enough to restore the universe?”
Ezra Miller plays the lead in the film, and other roles include Sasha Cale, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdú, Kiersey Clemons, and Antje True. Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck return to their Batman roles.
