The Flash has been subjected to numerous release delays due to production issues or its star Ezra Miller being involved in various legal issues and controversies in the past couple of months. DC fans are still hoping that the film will go ahead with its release next year. Fortunately, it is still the case as it is now expected to release a bit earlier than we anticipated.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has moved the release of The Flash to an earlier date. It is now set to arrive in theaters on June 16, 2023 instead of June 23. As a result, it will now move away from Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny which is scheduled on June 30.
On its new date, the DC flick will be competing against other films that are also set on that date such as Elemental, No Hard Feelings, and The Blackening. It will also now arrive the week after the release of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
For the past few years, we've been encountering news that the film's release was delayed to a later date so it is a nice breath of fresh air to hear now that it is moving to an earlier date, even if it's only one week of difference. This is a confirmation that the studio is indeed committed to releasing it theatrically.
There is no reason stated regarding why Warner Bros. moved the film to an earlier date although we could assume that it is likely because they want it to lead the box office for two weeks before Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny arrives in theaters where it is expected to take over.
The film also co-stars Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck, Kiersey Clemons, Michael Shannon, Sasha Calle, Ron Livingston, Antje Traue, and Maribel Verdu. Andy Muschietti is directing from Christina Hodson's screenplay.
