According to James Gunn, The Flash is “one of the greatest superhero movies ever made”, despite the controversy surrounding Ezra Miller.

After months of speculation and uncertainty, James Gunn and Peter Safran have unveiled the beginning of their rebooted DC Universe slate. We’re getting new movies with Superman, Supergirl, Batman and Robin, and more.

It comes after a period of intense turbulence for the franchise, from the binning of Batgirl to Miller’s long line of allegations, including abuse, harassment, grooming minors, and burglary.
