How to watch 'The Flash': Where to stream the CW show, new Ezra Miller movie and more
How to watch Season 9 of 'The Flash' series, when 'The Flash' movie is finally coming to theaters and more explained.
If you’re searching for where you can stream Warner Bros.’ headline-grabbing film, The Flash, starring Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, Sasha Calle and Ben Affleck, you should know this: following a production slowed down by perpetual delays and legal trouble for its star, The Flash won’t be making its less-than-speedy arrival to theaters until June 16, 2023. That’s over four years since the film’s first tentative release date was announced. Tired of waiting? You’re probably not the only DC fan to question their faith in the fastest man alive’s abilities.
Luckily, Ezra Miller’s The Flash isn't the only option when it comes to watching the Scarlet Speedster save the day, because CW’s The Flash, the series starring Grant Gustin, is currently airing new episodes of its ninth (and final) season. Plus, while the new The Flash movie will be the true introductory film for the character, the Crimson Comet has appeared in the DC extended cinematic universe before.
