It’s ironic that the movie about the Fastest Man Alive is taking so long to get made. But rest assured, Ezra Miller will be back in a solo ‘Flash’ movie. In an interview with W Magazine Korea, Miller was asked about his upcoming projects and he responded:
“Well, I’ll tell you the ones that I can tell you about because they’re absolutely confirmed are Fantastic Beasts 3, The Flash movie, I’m making more music with Sons of an Illustrious Father — the band I’m in — and I’m also making some music on my own which will be sort of a new project, a solo project.”
It hasn’t been formally announced, but it is believed that ‘It’s Andy Muschietti will direct, with Christina Hodson writing the script. Hodson wrote the screenplay for the upcoming DC Universe flick ‘Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)’ and ‘Batgirl’, which doesn’t yet have a director attached. Muschietti would be taking over for John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein who had been attached to direct and who had also worked on the script. Miller actually worked independently on his own screenplay for ‘The Flash’, with comic book writer Grant Morrison, which was reportedly a darker take on the character, but it seems as though Warner Brothers rejected that treatment completely.
Miller made cameos as The Flash/Barry Allen in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’, before making his full debut in ‘Justice League’. Of course, all three were financial disappointments. But to his credit, many fans felt his lighthearted take was one of the highlights of ‘Justice League’. Jason Momoa managed to move on from the failure of ‘Justice League’, to score the highest-grossing DC Comics movie of all time with ‘Aquaman’. Hopefully, fans will be just as supportive when Miller finally returns as The Flash.
‘The Flash’ doesn’t have a release date but Miller has previously stated that he plans to shoot it after finishing the next ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie. Check back for updates!
