After years of waiting we finally are moving forward with the story of Barry Allen a.k.a the Scarlet Speedster in THE FLASH.
During DC FanDome the director, Andy Muschietti, writer Christina Hobson, producer Barbara Muschietti and the flash himself Ezra Miller began to break down some of the things to expect in the film.
Many praised the creative eye of Muschietti and what he is expected to bring to the project. We also saw new concept art which showed us the Flash’s new suit which is more streamline and organic which will be designed and created by Bruce Wayne which can be assumed that one is Ben Affleck’s and it MUST be noted that the BATMAN we see is Michael Keaton’s Dark Knight.
Andy Muschietti teased us as if we were going to get a sneak peek of maybe some footage but none the less we were Rick Rolled.
We still will have to wait but one thing we do know is that THE FLASH will hit theaters June 2, 2022
Is it safe to say that this movie may be cursed and probably should not even come out?
I am not sure exactly what it is but there has been once again another snag in the road keeping the Scarlet Speedster from hitting the screen in his own solo film.
First it was Seth Grahame-Smith leaving the film as its helm and now new director Rick Famuyiwa has left the project. As of now it is uncertain as to exactly why the Dope director exited the project.
Warner Bros. had no comment on the news.
The move comes as a shock, given that pre-production for the film is already in high gear, and production was set to start in early 2017. The project was also far along in casting, most recently adding Kiersey Clemons to play Iris West and Billy Crudup to play Barry Allen’s father.
The movie was scheduled to be released on March 16, 2018. It’s currently unknown if this latest detour will force start of production and the release date to be moved.
After Grahame-Smith’s departure, the studio acted swiftly to replace him without any hiccups. This situation, however, is different; pre-production was in the very early stages at the time of Grahame-Smith’s exit, allowing the studio to regroup and focus on finding a new director. With pre-production so far along, change course now will be a tough hurdle to overcome, while still meeting deadlines.
