Ezra Miller’s The Flash, regardless of how the film turns out, will undoubtedly go down as one of the most troubled productions in DC Film history. For years Warner Bros tried to get a solo film featuring the iconic speedster off the ground. Eventually, IT director Andy Muschietti was brought on to helm the project with Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson penning the script.
Once this team took charge of the project, things seemed to go smoothly for a time. Unfortunately, Ezra Miller’s erratic behavior off set has placed the entier production in jeopardy. However, it seems that Warner Bros. Discovery still intends to push forward with the film.
The CEO Speaks
During an earnings call, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav discussed the upcoming film, alongside Black Adam and Shazam and how good they are and committed to making them better:
“We have some great DC films coming up — Black Adam, Shazam, and Flash, and we’re working on all of those. We’re very excited about them. We’ve seen them, we think they’re terrific, and we think we can make them even better.”
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 on the upcoming film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
