Shooting may Be Delayed On Warner Bros Stand Alone Flash Movie

Posted by at 5:01 pm on October 15, 2018

Warner Bros. is pushing back the start of filming on the studio’s still untitled standalone Flash film. The film never received a formal greenlight nor did it have a set release date, but it had been expected to begin shooting in March. However, a script is still being tweaked and the studio thinks that it won’t enough time to get the script in shape in order for the film to make its original start date.

That’s a problem, because Ezra Miller, the live-wire performer tasked with playing the Flash, also has a key supporting role in Fantastic Beasts, the Harry Potter spin-off series. The third film in the franchise begins shooting in July, which would cause scheduling headaches. The standalone Flash film is now expected to commence production in late 2019. That likely means the superhero adventure won’t debut in theaters until some time in 2021.

The Flash movie has had a long gestation. Last January, Warner Bros. signed Spider-Man: Homecoming scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to direct the film. They replaced Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, who left the film in 2016 over creative differences. His exit put the picture in limbo until a new filmmaker could be found.
