The Flash & Superman Films Lose Momentum At DC Films

Superman The Flash Henry Cavill Ezra MillerDeadline is reporting that both Superman and The Flash films have lost momentum.

In a new report from Deadline that focuses on the rise of female superhero films, the outlet released a few tidbits about the state of the DCEU going forward and while one part of it was good news about there possibly being a Zatanna film, the other could be taken as bad for Superman and The Flash fans. 

In the report Deadline states:

There’s also been talk of films for Supergirl, Zatanna and Batgirl, while male-hero movies like the long-promised Flash solo film or a new Superman installment have lost momentum.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as rumors surfaced back in September that Henry Cavill will no longer reprise his role as Superman. Meanwhile, Variety reported back in October that production on DC’s long-in-development standalone movie centered on The Flash was being pushed back to late 2019.

The Flash film was expected to kick off production in March of next year, however, due to development of the script, the project will not be ready and with Ezra Miller scheduled to begin work on the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise in July, filming will likely not commence until late 2019. Both Miller and Kiersey Clemons are committed to star as the titular hero and his love interest Iris West in the film.

A timetable for both The Flash and Superman was never set in stone, however, the production for The Flash was expected to be in tow following DC’s Shazam!, Wonder Woman 1984, and Todd Phillips’ Joker movie which is currently filming in Newark, New Jersey.

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the DC Films franchise as we learn it.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.

Aquaman will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.

    Script’s fault?

  • Darthmanwe

    Le shock.

  • theFirstNSpace

    I was really looking forward to a Flash movie. I’m tired of that TV show acting like it has anything to do with the comics.

  • Peter James

    I have exactly ZERO interest in watching a Zatanna movie, or a Blue Beetle movie (another rumored movie in development), or a Supergirl movie (which makes no sense if you get rid of Superman in your DCEU).

    No wonder that studio is in disarray.

    I guess Marvel’s winning streak is set to continue for the foreseeable future unchallenged.

    • Jan Baard

      A Blue Beetle movie? I’d sign up for that. Zatanna depends who’d they cast for it. Don’t really need to see a Flash movie, don’t care for the actor and how he plays it. A Man of Steel 2 is something most of us want.

    • Clark

      Flash movie is happening they are set to film late next year

    • deevo.

      For the love of god, can they just give fans what they want and give us a fun badass Superman movie? I swear, until it was announced NO ONE was clamoring for Supergirl in film. Same for Blue Beetle and Zatanna. GIVE US SUPERMAN.

  • Clark

    They need to announce MoS 2 though

    dceu/warner’s has inadvertently (due to their ineptness) turned Superman into a c-list I.P. and Flash into a d-list I.P..
