It’s been a long road to the big screen for the Flash’s standalone movie. But while you still have to wait another month to check it out, CinemaCon attendees were treated to one of the very first screenings of the movie on Tuesday night. And, well, there were some extremely positive responses.
One of those positive responses came from none other than GameSpot Senior Editor Chris Hayner, who declared that “Keaton delivers everything you want” and that the movie actually “meets and suprasses the hype.”
I don’t know what to say other than #TheFlash delivered more than I could have hoped. The acting is beyond great. Keaton delivers everything you want. Supergirl is my new favorite superhero? I’m genuinely shocked this movie meets and surpasses the hype. I never expected that. pic.twitter.com/PcmpJ2juZ6

Fandom Managing Editor Eric Goldman was similarly happy coming out of the screening, specifically lauding its originality. Goldman said The Flash actually had great moments that he “hadn’t seen in a million other superhero movies” before.
