The Flash doesn’t hit theaters until next year, but Warner Bros. has a script for a potential sequel to the DC Comics movie.
Andy Muschietti’s The Flash has been plagued by numerous bad headlines involving its leading star Ezra Miller, but Warner Bros. is prepared to move forward with a follow-up in case the movie does well at the box office. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Flash 2 has a script, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick.
The Flash sequel was entrusted to a familiar face
David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick is a frequent collaborator of James Wan and the writer behind Jason Momoa’s Aquaman movie and its upcoming sequel. His most recent release is the psychological horror movie Orphan: First Kill, which has so far grossed $37 million at the worldwide box office.
Just yesterday, Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty to charges of burglary into an occupied home and petit larceny in a Vermont court. If convicted, Miller faces up to 26 years behind bars, as well as $2,000 in fines. The 30-year-old actor is currently seeking treatment for mental health issues.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
The Flash opens on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the Ezra Miller movie and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
