Get ready for some big news regarding the future of the DCEU. According to The Wall Street Journal, The Flash solo movie, ‘Flashpoint’, has become a “priority” at Warner Bros. following news that Ezra Miller’s take on the character is being seen as the breakout character from ‘Justice League’.
Rumors began swirling last week that production of ‘Flashpoint’ was being held up until the studio had gotten word on the reception of ‘Justice League’. That’s likely to do with the fact that if the blockbuster was received poorly the direction of the DCEU would be altered. Whether that report had validity or not it appears that executives at Warner are happy with the Miller’s portrayal of Barry Allen.
The author of the article, Ben Fritz, went on to say in a tweet regarding the story that Toby Emmerich, the executive these comments came from, also mentioned that Warner is “close to hiring a director” for ‘Flashpoint’ and hopes to greenlight the project soon. The Flash solo movie has been notorious for losing directors in recent years, including the likes of Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa. Robert Zemeckis was also reportedly in negotiations to direct the film but nothing has come of it as of yet.
So add ‘Flashpoint’ to all the other major films that DC is preparing to flood into theaters over the next couple years. We should see some major news regarding the project, including director and release date in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned to SuperBroMovies for all news regarding ‘Flashpoint’. –Jackson Hayes
