The highly anticipated DC movie, “The Flash,” has finally revealed its budget, and it is no surprise that it is a costly one. Despite the delays and controversies surrounding the film’s lead star, Ezra Miller, the hype for the movie has been increasing, thanks to rave reviews from critics since its premiere at CinemaCon.
According to a report, “The Flash” has a budget of approximately $220 million, making it one of the most expensive movies in DC superhero history. However, it still falls behind “Justice League,” which holds the record for the most expensive DC movie with a budget of $300 million. Other films that made the list are “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Black Adam,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Man of Steel.”
Expectations For The Box Office
The high budget of “The Flash” is expected, considering the numerous cameos and the extensive visual effects required for the multiverse adventure of the Scarlet Speedster. The movie’s editor, Paul Machliss, even revealed that they used the latest technology to create multiple versions of the same actor on the screen, making it unique compared to other films that have attempted the same technique.
Given the high expectations, immense pressure is on “The Flash” to deliver at the box office. The nostalgia factor of seeing Michael Keaton return as Batman and the references to the larger DC Multiverse combined with positive critic reviews for Miller’s performance may be enough to put “The Flash” at the top of the box office.
Fans can finally see the outcome of the film’s high budget when “The Flash” premieres in theaters on June 16.
