‘Flashpoint’ Script Reportedly Completed

Justice League FlashpointDC fans may be one step closer to seeing the Scarlett Speedster in his own standalone film within the DC extended universe as the script for Flashpoint is reportedly completed.

On the heels of the news that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have signed on to direct the feature film adaptation of Andy Weir’s Artemis, it has been revealed that the script for Flashpoint was delivered to Warner Bros. yesterday, according to Variety reporter Justin Kroll. In addition, Kroll has also confirmed that Robert Zemeckis is still being considered to direct the film.

Lord and Miller originally developed the treatment for what was then known as The Flash at Warner Bros. but ultimately exited the project over creative differences before joining the Star Wars spinoff as directors. The duo was revealed to have met with the studio after they were fired from directing the Untitled Han Solo Story at Lucasfilm.

Joby Harold, writer of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and the upcoming Robin Hood: Origins has written the script for Flashpoint. Robert Zemeckis emerged as the frontrunner to direct the film in May but the project has been in limbo ever since Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) exited the Warner Bros. production, citing creative differences between him and the studio as the reason for his departure. Famuyiwa was hired to replace Seth Grahame-Smith who penned the original script and also exited the project due to creative differences.

Both Ezra Miller and Kiersey Clemons remain committed to star as the titular hero and his love interest Iris West. Miller will reprise his role as The Flash after first being introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice later this year when he appears in the epic superhero team-up flick Justice League which hits theaters November 17, 2017. Flashpoint will also feature an appearance by Wonder Woman as Gal Gadot has been confirmed for The Flash standalone film.

5 Ways To Make The ‘Shazam’ Movie Relatable & Engaging

Previous1 of 6

Shazam DC ComicsThe DC Extended Universe is set to expand to new heights in the next few years. Not only will we see the Justice League hit the big screen this year, but we also have exciting movies like Dark Universe and Shazam coming soon.

Shazam — a.k.a. Captain Marvel, though I doubt DC will ever call him that again — is a perfect character to bring to the big screen. The dark, gritty vibe of the DCEU works for characters like Batman or the Suicide Squad, but Shazam deserves something a bit more bright and lively.

The story of Billy Batson walking into a magical world and gaining both the powers of distinct mythical deities and the appearance of a strong adult, He-Man style, is perfect for the big screen. But, as with a lot of superheroes, the trick is making them relatable, and Shazam, with his magic and transformative powers, could be the trickiest of all.

Click the Next button and shout “Shazam” to find out the five ways I think Warner Bros. can make his movie relatable and engaging.
