Some new details about Ezra Miller’s Flash movie have surfaced online amid the recent leadership shake-ups at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.
With Geoff Johns stepping down to a producer role and Diane Nelson not returning to the fold, DC Films will now be led by Walter Hamada. And with this new leadership shake-up come many changes to the struggling DC Extended Universe. Some of these changes are directly related to the standalone Flash movie. The film, which will star Ezra Miller, will finally begin production in early 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Flash film has had several major players at the helm. Rick Famuyiwa, director of Dope, was once attached to direct Barry Allen’s first cinematic solo outing but departed the project over creative differences. Before him, Seth Grahame-Smith was picked to write and direct the film but eventually bolted on the project. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who wrote Spider-Man Homecoming and directed Game Night, are now at the helm of the Flash movie starring Ezra Miller.
The DC Extended Universe films have been very dark up to this point. This is one thing Hamada wants out the door faster then the Flash can run. This trickles down to The Flash changing its direction away from the somber themes it was originally thought to tackle. According to THR, The Flash will have a much lighter tone and will utilize the style form Back to the Future. Daley and Goldstein have a knack for thrilling comedic films and with this new strategy for a lighter film similar to the Marty Mcfly tale, the Flash standalone movie is poised to have audiences bolting into theaters when it finally drops in theaters.
Fans can relive all their favorite Flash moments by watching Justice League. Here’s the film’s synopsis:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

The DC Extended Universe may be full of heroes already, but it’s missing one key figure: Booster Gold.
Created in 1986, Michael Jon Carter is originally from the 25th century. An impoverished college football player from Gotham City, Carter eventually received a job at a 20th-century superhero museum.

With the help of a security robot called Skeets, Carter stole key heroic artifacts and traveled back in-time to use his knowledge of the past to his advantage.
Not only does Carter want to be the best superhero in the world, he wants to make sure he’s never broke like he was in the past.
