Production on The Flash Stumbles to Late 2019

Production on The Flash Stumbles to Late 2019

The Flash's solo movie has been one of the projects that's suffered through several delays. And so, the film will continue to be developed so Miller can shoot the third Fantastic Beasts in July 2019 and then do The Flash after, possibly near the end of 2019. Now we've got one more hiccup: The Flash is being delayed since Ezra Miller is tied up shooting Fantastic Beasts films for the next year. The issues don't just lie with Miller's schedule, as apparently the script still needed some fine-tuning before getting Warner Bros.' full approval. There have been rumors that his film would fully, or at least partially, adapt the 2011 comic book storyline Flashpoint, which later led to DC Comics rebooting with the New 52. Original Flash director Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) exited the project in 2016, but his replacements, Spider-Man: Homecoming writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, are presumedly still on-board. Filming is expected to start late next year which puts the superhero movie on pace for a release date sometime in 2021.

Warner pushing back the start of filming on the studio's still untitled standalone Flash film, sources tell Variety.

Warner Bros. has been rethinking the Worlds of DC brand after the disappointing box office for Justice League. It had been scheduled to begin filming in March 2019, but the new script isn't finished and the studio wanted more time to get it right. But this same studio is now developing two Joker movies, one of which is forcing extras to pee out the side of locked subway cars and the other, even more obscene, stars Jared Leto. It's unknown if Clemons will return for The Flash, or if the character will be recast.
