After rumours started swirling online, The Flash will have a final runtime of 144 minutes, multiple sources close to the project have confirmed to One Take News.
With this runtime locked in, The Flash is the fourth longest film in the DCU, only bested by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman 1984 and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
The Flash had been in development hell for years now but it finally got off the ground when Andy Muschetti was tapped to direct. Despite the numerous controversies surrounding star Ezra Miller, we at OTN have been telling you that the film had been testing positively for over a year, with DC Studios boss James Gunn calling it “fucking fantastic” and “one of the greatest superheroes films ever”. These claims were further backed by the overwhelmingly positive response from people who saw the unfinished film at CinemaCon.
Read the synopsis for The Flash:
Worlds collide when the Flash uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change the events of the past. However, when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, he becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation. With no other superheroes to turn to, the Flash looks to coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian — albeit not the one he’s looking for.Warner Bros.
The Flash is slated to hit theatres on June 16. The runtime was first reported by Flash Film News.
