The Flash standalone film has experienced setbacks over the course of development with Dope director Rick Famuyiwa exiting the project over creative differences. Famuyiwa had been hired to replace Seth Grahame-Smith, who also wrote the original script and left the project under similar circumstances. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword writer Joby Harold penned the latest script for Flashpoint.
Flashpoint stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Gal Gadot is also set to make an appearance as Wonder Woman.
Dou you think Daley and Goldstein, whose credits also include New Line’s upcoming action-comedy Game Night, are the right choice to direct the first Flash film? Share your thoughts below!
Flashpoint does not currently have a release date.
What Walter Hamada Can Bring To DC Films
Walter Hamada has been announced as the new head of DC Films. This news was not entirely unexpected. Justice League did not perform well to anyone’s expectations, critically and financially. When a major tentpole does not perform well, there are bound to be shakeups within a studio. That means people are moved both out of and into positions of power.
So even though Hamada is now running things, there will still be time before we see his effect on the DC Extended Universe. Aquaman is already in post-production, Shazam! is in the middle of pre-production and Wonder Woman 2 is gearing up to start shooting later this year. That takes the franchise up to the end of 2019, giving Hamada enough time to really get acclimated before making an impact.
Here is just how he can do so. Click Next to see what Hamada can bring to DC Films!
