After Its Miserable Box Office Failure, The Flash Became an NFT of All Things
Don’t worry if you’re hearing explosions: this happens when The Flash pops up on your screen. The biggest box office bomb just embarrassed itself further, so tune in!
“The best superhero movie of all time” turned out to be one of the worst superhero movie flops of all time, but you know that already, don’t you? The whole world knows — after all that aggressive and overly-praising marketing, The Flash came out with horrible CGI, morally incorrect cameos, and a bunch of other fundamental problems.
So to (almost) no one’s surprise, the movie bombed terrifically, failing to break even, never mind bringing any profits. With a total budget of almost half a mill, it only earned $267M worldwide, losing an entire fortune to the studio which admittedly spent way too much money on a movie that looks like a video game from the 2000s.
But for The Flash, it seems, no low is low enough. After breaking multiple anti-records, being ridiculed by the entirety of the Internet, and continuously embarrassing itself for the past weeks, some genius over at Warner Bros. thought of a way for this unfortunate movie to sink even lower in the public’s eyes: NFTs.
“It’s official, The Flash is the first new release movie to hit the blockchain!” Warner Bros. Digital Collectibles account wrote on Twitter.
This comes months after everyone finally realized that NFTs are nonsense, and weeks after The Flash humiliated itself for the first time. Whoever came up with this plan can’t be serious: this is the opposite of trying to save the movie’s reputation. It’s almost like WB is attempting to turn the whole situation into a meme, except it isn’t.
Instead of accepting The Flash’s fate and moving on, Warner Bros. continuously brings up new embarrassing ways to remind us of the failure that this film turned out to be, and we’ve no idea why. At least, this one’s the funniest yet: with this whole blockchain thing, you can joke that The Flash traveled back to 2021 or something.
