The Flash stumbles out of the box office and into the homes of its fans! Release dates for Ezra Miller’s latest DC Universe excursion debuting on digital and blu-ray have been revealed.
The Flash has struggled at the box office and shows no sign of recovering anytime soon, so it’s no shock Warner Bros. Discovery executives would want to rush the film to buy digitally as fast as possible, especially given how many people have already pirated it. Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster will enter fans’ homes digitally starting on July 17, costing £19.99 SRP and for 48-hour rental via PVOD for £15.99 SRP.
Fans can also own The Flash on physical media. The newest DC universe project featuring Ezra Miller will be available on blu-ray, 4K UHD, and DVD starting September 15. It’s unlikely the sales from these platforms and digital releases will recoup the massive losses the film experienced at the box office, but it will ensure the film will stay in fans’ hearts for years to come.
The Flash’s DC Universe future
Warner Bros. Discovery already has a script for a potential sequel to The Flash, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the man behind the two Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran did not discuss the Flash sequel during their DC Universe presentation.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
