With The Flash slowly reaching the end of its pre-production phase, it has secured several key cast and crew members. In addition to Ezra Miller reprising his role from Justice League as Barry Allen/The Flash, Game Night directors John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein have been hired to helm the movie. Although many key players have been attached, production will not begin immediately this year. Instead, the film is set to begin shooting in early 2019.
However, the production date does not mean that the filmmakers have not decided on the movie’s tone. In fact, not only have they committed to a less somber vibe than previous DCEU movies, they have chosen a specific movie to use as an influence towards that light-hearted tone: Robert Zemeckis’s iconic Back to the Future. This suggests that the movie could have the adventure thrills of that movie and that it will be tonally consistent with the Flash scenes in Justice League.
Considering that audiences were on board with the Flash scenes in that movie, it is reassuring that his standalone movie is likely to adopt the same fun vibe. It will be interesting to see how the film will develop as it reaches the beginning of its shooting schedule.
What do you think about The Flash starting production in early 2019 and its more light-hearted approach compared to the rest of the DCEU? Be sure to tweet your thoughts at @superbromovies and stay tuned for more The Flash news.
