Is The Flash movie streaming?

It was only about a month ago when The Flash TV series wrapped its nine-season run on The CW. Now, The Flash movie is in theaters after years of delays and a long run of very unflattering brushes with the law for its star, Ezra Miller. Regardless, the wait is over and audiences will now have the chance to judge The Flash on its own merits.

In the film, Barry Allen (Miller) discovers that he has the power to travel back in time. And since Barry is haunted by the murder of his mother, Nora Allen (Maribel Verdú), and the unjust incarceration of his father, Henry Allen (Ron Livingston), Barry attempts to rewrite history in his favor. What he creates is a world where Michael Keaton’s Bruce Wayne is Batman, and there are no other superheroes around when General Zod (Michael Shannon) invades with his Kryptonian army. The only ones who can go up against Zod are two versions of Barry, a largely broken Batman, and a Supergirl (Sasha Calle).

Keep on reading, and we’ll answer your burning questions about whether The Flash is streaming, and where you can find it.

No, not yet. The Flash has only just arrived in theaters, and you’re going to have to wait for a while before it is available to stream. The previous regime at Warner Bros. experimented with releasing movies day on the streaming service formerly known as HBO Max the same day they hit theaters. For the most part, it did not go well, which is why the traditional theatrical release is once again the model for Warner Bros. Discovery.

Will The Flash be available to stream at home?

Yes, and The Flash‘s streaming home will be on Max. However, Max doesn’t have a firm timeframe in place for The Flash‘s arrival. It all really depends on how The Flash is received in theaters. If it does well and it has sustained business at the box office, then it probably won’t hit Max until this fall.

But if The Flash pulls an Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and absolutely plummets after the opening weekend, then you may see it on Max as soon as next month. That was Black Adam‘s fate, and it won’t be the last superhero movie that fails to connect.

Are there secret superhero cameos in The Flash?

Oh yeah, there are indeed a lot of superhero cameos in The Flash. But if you’re expecting a meaningful team-up across the multiverse along the lines of Spider-Man: No Way Home, then you may be disappointed. The only really important characters in The Flash are the two Barrys, the Michael Keaton Batman, and to a much smaller extent, Supergirl. Everyone else is just window dressing, and they don’t really affect the story at all.

The film does have one last surprise near the end that was genuinely funny. But you should really see that for yourself.

If you have to watch one Amazon Prime Video movie in June 2024, stream this one
if you have to watch one amazon prime video movie in june 2024 stream this robert de niro midnight run

Coming into June, there's one movie that the vast majority of Amazon Prime Video subscribers are likely to check out: Oppenheimer. Christopher Nolan's latest film is also the reigning Oscar-winner for Best Picture, and it's coming to Prime Video on June 18. But because it's such an obvious pick, it's not the film we went with when choosing the Amazon Prime Video movie that you have to watch in June.

Instead, we're going with Midnight Run, a 1988 action comedy starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. It's also one of the best-ever films in its genre, and very few movies have improved upon the formula that director Martin Brest and screenwriter George Gallo used here. Even 36 years after its release, Midnight Run withstands the test of time. And we're sharing the reasons why it should be at the top of your Prime Video viewing plans in June.

While Max's lineup of movies isn't quite as impressive as it used to be, it still has a number of films that are worth getting excited about.

Now, it's almost impossible to watch every new release, which only makes it more important to remember the underrated movies of the past before they're completely forgotten.

This month's picks for the three underrated movies on Max that you need to watch in June include one of Julia Roberts' best rom-coms, a horror remake that really delivers, and a comic book action film that has some serious star power.
