What did Stephen King say about The Flash?

Stephen King adds to a growing list of non-traditional critics who have nothing but positive things to say about The Flash.

It's as if Warner Bros. Discovery is purposely hyping up The Flash way before its launch, right?

It looks like the brilliantly horrific mind behind Pennywise the Clown has some good things to say about one of the three DC Extended Universe films that are coming out later this year.

Ahead of its release on June 16, Stephen King published his thoughts on The Flash on Twitter and it's created a buzz all over the internet.

The Flash, directed by Andrés Muschietti, is eagerly awaited by fans. It's received plenty of praise from earlier screenings earlier this year and last year. The expectations for The Flash are so high that it's possible that people will feel disappointed if it's anything less than perfect. It certainly doesn't help that a creative genius like Stephen King appreciates Muschietti's work, which undeniably only adds to the anticipation.

King, who's considered the master of horror and suspense, took to social media after watching an early screening of The Flash.

In his post, King praised the film highly, calling it "heartfelt, funny, and eye-popping."

This unfiltered praise from a creator as well respected as King is a testament to its quality.

Stephen King doesn't always get his reviews right, so some fans doubt that he'll spot on with his praise for The Flash.

King's words went viral all over social media, even catching the attention of the new co-CEO of DC Studios, James Gunn.

Gunn, who recently came on board to reboot the entire DCEU lineup and introduce a fresh slate starting with Superman: Legacy, was appreciative of King's feedback.

The Flash is the first of the three DCEU films that are coming out in the second half of this year. Although it's had its fair share of misses, King's glowing review, when considered with Tom Cruise's statement, suggests that the anticipation for the film will reach a fever pitch sooner rather than later if it already isn't.

While not traditionally a film critic, King's vast experience in storytelling and his appreciation for cinema as an art form are what make his praise a significant endorsement.

But, then again, as one user pointed out, King had high praise for last year's Firestarter, which has a 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so take his words with a grain of salt.

The Flash will bring back the iconic Batman actor, Michael Keaton, in one of his most beloved roles.

The Flash will hit theaters on June 16, after which Blue Beetle (August 18) and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (December 20) will close out the DCEU permanently.
