Ezra Miller: ‘The Flash’ May Start Filming This Year



There’s been a bit of trouble for DC’s standalone outing for The Flash. Seth Grahame-Smith was originally signed on to helm the project, and eventually departed due to creative differences. Eventually, Dope filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa was set to tackle the speedforce, even casting Kiersey Clemons and Billy Crudup in the film as Iris West and Henry Allen respectively – only to drop out of the project last week, also citing creative differences.

After Famuyiwa’s departure, it seemed that production on the upcoming film (along with its scheduled release date) may be delayed. However, while promoting his newest film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Ezra Miller revealed that despite the current lack of director, production on the film may be starting sooner than expected:

We don’t know right now [who the director will be], but I think we’ll start this year, I think it’s coming up pretty quick.

Miller’s comments are quite interesting to say the least. Does this signify that Warner Bros. and DC are already close to finding a new director for the project? Keep following Heroic Hollywood for more news about The Flash and the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

You can see Ezra Miller in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them when it opens in theaters on November 18.

    I like to imagine a DC executive skulking around all the Marvel directors hoping to pull them in like Slugworth from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

    • SAMURAI36

      It’s only been one thus far, but that one has been a doozy. If DC gets Edgar Wright, Marvel is gonna look soooo stupid.

      • UnBoxingJon

        I think they’ll do fine.

      • Maxi Iroh

        Wright should do Shazam!

        • SAMURAI36

          I’d be perfectly good with that!!

      • Axxell

        The only one who would look stupid here is Edgar Wright for leaving Marvel to go to a studio that butchers up your work into the ground.

      • In Brightest Day

        No chance of that.

    On one hand, I know that they have pre-vis and storyboard works done so it’s not going to be a huge delay and a big blow to the movie, so I try to stay calm.

    On the other hand, this IS the Flash. My fav. hero ever, and there is a very real chance the movie could go down real quick really bad if a proper director is not at the helm of this.

    This ain’t Ant-Man, you can’t hope to put a Peyton Reed at its helm and hope to get away with 5 years prior work of Edgar Wright. ( And I hated the diluted half-and-half end product that is Ant-Man, so that should tell you something about director change)

    Any phenomenal up and coming director you can think of, they are already employed on one project or the other. And the date is closing in fast, no pun intended.

    C’mon WB, don’t mess this up.
