Seth Grahame Smith departed the directors chair of The Flash last week and that got me thinking: Who could be a good replacement?
I was really apprehensive about the Seth Grahame Smith signing since day one. I remember it like it was yesterday, when I was informed. He was never a good choice. I thought it was weird that WB would put a rookie director on a film that has a lot of pressure surrounding it. The Flash Television Series is killing it and they need someone who can take the character to the next level.
Grahame, in my own opinion, just wasn’t the guy. I think he’s an excellent writer and I enjoyed Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter(The book), but he just wasn’t the right man for The Flash. His script may be really good, but his directorial skills are unknown and I know a lot of folks agree. This wasn’t a lost at all. This was Warner Bros. waking up and deciding that they can’t take any more risks.
Batman v Superman was a financial and critical disappointment, whether you like it or not. So, WB has to think smarter about their up coming films. For The Flash, you need someone who’s good with visuals and effects, who can tell a story and make the movie fun. So, I decided to make a top 5 list of directors I think Warner Bros. should take a look at. You can check them out by clicking next.
