Flash Standalone Movie Pushes Start Date, Eyes 2021 Release


How do you feel about The Flash's latest delay?

According to Variety, Warner Bros. has once again pushed back the release of The Flash in part because of scripting issues. 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. The third film in the Harry Potter spin-off series, in which Miller plays a key supporting character, begins shooting in July 2019. But studio sources confirmed Monday that a finish line in 2021 was not the target they had hoped for - the best-case scenario had been a March 2019 start-date for filming but that proved too impractical due to scheduling conflicts.

Apparently, this new production start date is partially due to Miller's other role under the Warner Bros. umbrella, playing Credence in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. That likely means the superhero adventure won't debut in theaters until some time in 2021. Talk flared, then faded, about a standalone Flash film would be titled Flashpoint, but after the departure of two directors (Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa both boarded and exited the project within a span of two years) those plans are up in the air.

Flash will be directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Will an Ezra Miller led Flash movie be worth the wait?

Warner Bros. has hit yet another jumble on the road to creating their DC Extended Universe. It is expected to recast the Dark Knight with a different actor. Now we are a few months away from the release of Aquaman and next year we'll see a Wonder Woman sequel.
