Tom Cruise loved The Flash so much he called its director
The upcoming Flash movie already had one fan when James Gunn called it “probably one of the greatest superhero movies ever made,” but now an unexpected celebrity is sparking buzz around DC’s upcoming movie: Tom Cruise.
According to a report from THRThe Top Gun and Mission: Impossible star loved The Flash so much that he called director Andy Muschietti to praise him.
The story began when Cruise had a meeting with the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery by David Zaslav, who reportedly mentioned to Cruise how great The Flash is. Cruise asked to see the film and Zaslav agreed, sending an advance copy of the film to Cruise’s home in Beverly Hills. Shortly after Cruise finished the film, he approached Muschietti.
According to THR sources, Cruise called The Flash something like “everything you want from a movie” and added that “this is the movie we need right now.”
Tom Cruise has received tons of praise from people like Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg for Top Gun: Maverick and his role in the box office bailout, so it’s nice to see the star pass on some of the love back.
Right now, all we can do is take Cruz at his word, as The Flash won’t hit theaters until June 16th. the arrival of Kara Zor-El, also known as Supergirl. The film will also mark the return of Zod Michael Shannon and Faora Antje Traue. The Flash also faced a lot of controversy due to Miller’s legal issues and related questions about whether WB would stick with the actor.
