The last few days have been very intense for Flash. The new DC and Warner Bros. super production has caught the attention of journalists and fans alike for the release of its new trailer and the first reactions following its official screening at CinemaCon. Now, new comments from Andy Muschietti, its director, have revealed the possibility that a special cut will one day take place Flash, which would last four hours. Does the #ReleaseTheMuschiettiCut have to be advertised?
Last Monday took place in Los Angeles questions and answers with various members of the international press at the Warner Bros. facilities there Andy and Barbara Muschietti answered questions from those present and clarified certain doubts about the film. After two years of post production shoots again and changes in history, it is obvious that Flash It has material to create an alternative cut to the one shown in the cinemas. This was commented on by the Argentine filmmaker in this regard (via Weekly entertainment):
“If you see the version of the film that lasts four hours, this was my first montage, you will see everything I left out. I’m definitely happier with this version than the four hour one. You get excited and start improvising with the actors, and suddenly you have a scene that’s twice as long as you planned when the script was released. But it happens all the time.”
Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time thatows has promoted an expanded version of his projects. A few years ago when I was promoted It: chapter twothe director confirmed that the end of the Pennywise story lasted four hours in the first cut. He even commented on the possibility of creating a 6-hour film combining both chapters of the storyline based on Stephen King’s book. And as for DC, the story is well known. In 2021, Zack Snyder was finally able to release his version of the Justice League just as he imagined from the beginning, and it also took four hours. When asked if the same could happen to him, Muschietti replied:
“Perhaps. We had another three and a half hour outage and then another that lasted five hours. Then you have to face the edit and say, “Okay, we’ve got to cut an hour and a half out of this movie, how is that going to happen?” At the end of the six months, it’s fun. In the beginning it’s just chaos. Whatever you do is wrong because it’s all trial and error and you’re trying a lot of things.”
In the end,owing assurances, the final version of the film will be the one that best suits his needs as a filmmaker and those of the studio. After much controversy with its protagonist, changes in the DC board, and speculation about the character’s future, Warner Bros. appears to have played the game. The first reactions from the trade press and some fans are unbeatable and will certainly contribute to the success of the film.
“It really is the best version of the film. There are things that are interesting when you look at the deleted scenes at a certain point. But some are more interesting than others. Certain things are cooler than others, but they slowed down the movie, which is something to keep in mind.”
Flashmain role Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Maribel Verdu and Ron Livingstonwill next hit theaters in Latin America 15th June. Will it give DC a much-needed win?
