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
So 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.
