Warner Bros.’ production start date for the third Fantastic Beasts film could mean further delays for Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie.
Today, it was announced that Warner Bros.’ third Fantastic Beasts film is scheduled to begin filming in Spring 2020, with Ezra Miller reprising his role as Credence Barebone, who was revealed to be a lost relative of Albus Dumbledore in the last installment. Of course, news of the new start date for Fantastic Beasts 3 has DC fans concerned that Ezra Miller’s The Flash could be delayed once again due to the actor’s commitments to the Harry Potter prequel series.
The Flash has experienced numerous setbacks through the years, including the departure of two directors on separate occasions over creative differences. While the project appeared to be moving forward with directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein at the helm, Ezra Miller was said to be writing a new screenplay for The Flash film with Grant Morrison due to creative conflicts with the filmmaking duo over the tone of the film. While Daley and Goldstein opted to exit The Flash, Warner Bros. ultimately rejected Ezra Miller and Grant Morrison’s screenplay.
Production on third Fantastic Beasts had previously been set for July 2019 before being pushed back to fall of the same year. However, the Fantastic Beasts team required more prep time, resulting in the new spring 2020 start date.
During that period, IT director Andy Mushcietti has signed on to direct Ezra Miller’s The Flash while Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson is being eyed to pen a new script for the project. Warner Bros. was last reported to be hoping to get The Flash in prep mode by January 2020, though it remains unclear how Ezra Miller’s schedule has been affected by the new start date for Fantastic Beasts 3.
Directed by David Yates from a script written by J. K. Rowling and Steve Kloves, Fantastic Beasts 3 stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Folger, and Katherine Waterson. Yates will also serve as a producer alongside David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves, Lionel Wigram, and Tim Lewis.
Fantastic Beasts 3 is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 12, 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Fantastic Beasts 3 and Ezra Miller’s The Flash as it develops!
