‘Game Night’ Directors Confirm They Will Direct DC Films’ ‘Flashpoint’

Flashpoint DC ComicsGame Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are confirmed to direct DC’s upcoming Flashpoint film. The announcement comes a week after Game Night opened to critical acclaim and considerable box-office acclaim.

John Francis Daley confirmed the news via Twitter, after discussing how the film is a possibility during a Reddit AMA.

The Flash film was originally going to be directed by Dope‘s Rick Famuiya, however, he left the film after creative differences with Warner Bros. in 2016. Since then, the studio has been attempting to find a director to fit the job. Game Night managed to be a hilarious and thrilling romp, which makes the directing duo perfect for the gig.

Flashpoint stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Gal Gadot is set to make an appearance as Wonder Woman.

Flashpoint does not currently have an official release date.

10 Characters Who Should Appear In The ‘Nightwing’ Movie

Nightwing DCSo Michael Cera’s appearance as Dick Grayson in The LEGO Batman Movie wasn’t enough for all you Nightwing fans, huh? Well, Warner Bros. is listening and has decided to give Heroic Hollywood’s number one sidekick his own movie. The LEGO Batman Movie helmer Chris McKay has been named the director of a Nightwing movie no one saw coming. Nightwing’s place in the DC Extended Universe is up in the air. How long ago did he quit being Robin? Are he and Batman speaking right now? Why wasn’t he mentioned in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

While the movie will likely answer all those questions, I expect it will also serve as an introduction to a different corner of the Batman universe. Batman might be in it for a scene or two, but the movie will need a supporting cast to help Nightwing appear as the kickass, sociable character he is. Bruce Wayne has got the brooding down, but former circus performer Dick Grayson knows how to have fun in a way his mentor doesn’t.

    It isn’t going to be Flashpoint.

    Yea yea. I will believe it when i see it on theaters. At this point, I would not be surprised the actual Barry Allen crosses over multiverse to come to this one to prevent this from happening, after so many disasters.

    Call me up when this movie actually releases in theaters, or in worst case, over VOD.

    It’s smart of Hamada to wait and see how game night does in the box office before offering them flashpoint. I saw game night.. surprisingly fun movie. I think this duo will be the perfect director for Ezra Miller.
