If you’re searching for where you can stream Warner Bros.’ new 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 lots of legal trouble for its star, The Flash finally made its less-than-speedy arrival to theaters on June 16, 2023. Over four years since the film’s first tentative release date was announced, you can now go see DC's The Flash exclusively in theaters. Can't get to a theater right now? Don't worry, 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, has nine seasons for you to enjoy while you wait for The Flash to hit streaming. 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.

Trying to get the timeline straight before the new Flash movie permanently reshapes the DCEU as you know it? We’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch The Flash movie, the CW Flash series, The Flash crossover episode, Ezra Miller’s past DCEU appearances as The Flash and more.
