Ezra Miller Reportedly Done With The Flash, WB Will Recast The Role

Recently, development on Warner Bros.’ The Flash movie took an unexpected turn. Star Ezra Miller disagreed with the lighter tone directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley want and so decided to provide his own script for the Scarlet Speedster’s solo movie with comic book scribe Grant Morrison. It was reported that if the studio didn’t want to go with his screenplay, though, Miller would be out as Barry Allen.

Well, according to a source close to We Got This Covered, this has come to pass and Miller may now be done as the Flash. It should be said that our source notes they’ve heard some conflicting information on the topic, but we’re told that the general consensus amongst those close to the project is that the Justice League star won’t be playing the lead in The Flash, after all, and Warner Bros. will now recast the role.

Ezra Miller’s 'Flash' Script Said to Be in the Vein of Flashpoint

Ezra Miller’s 'Flash' Script Said to Be in the Vein of Flashpoint
At a time when the DC franchise is finally looking pretty healthy, The Flash movie is encountering an unexpected new set of problems. Though directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein seemed to be progressing well with the project, the latest twist in this long-gestating production is that star Ezra Miller is not happy with the direction the duo want to go in. Instead, he’s decided to come up with his own alternate script, to be penned with comic book legend Grant Morrison.

Many eyebrows were raised when this news came about last week, leaving fans eager to find out more about what Miller and Morrison want to do with the Scarlet Speedster. Now, Full Circle Cinema has shared a report which helps illuminate the situation somewhat. As previously stated, Miller’s beef with Daley and Goldstein’s take is that it’s too light-hearted and grounded for his tastes.

The Flash Movie: Ezra Miller and Grant Morrison to Write Script

John Saavedra Mar 18, 2019

Ezra Miller and Grant Morrison will tackle the script for the eternally-in-development Flash movie.

The long-in-gestation Flash movie is getting a new writing team: veteran writer Grant Morrison and Barry Allen himself, Ezra Miller. According to THR, the star is taking on scripting duties after "a clash of creative visions" with directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Spider-Man: Homecoming), who reportedly have a more lighthearted approach in mind. Miller and Morrison's script could decide whether the young actor stays on as the Scarlet Speedster, according to the outlet.

While this would be Miller's first writing credit on a major motion picture, Morrison brings a lot of comic book experience to the team. Morrison not only co-wrote an excellent Flash run with Mark Millar back in the '90s, but he's tackled most of DC's most popular heroes, giving many of them character-defining storylines.

'Flash' Shocker: Ezra Miller Writing Script in Bid to Stay On as Star
In a bid to keep himself involved as the Scarlet Speedster, actor Ezra Miller is taking a hands-on approach to The Flash.

Miller is taking a stab at writing the script for the Warner Bros. project, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. He has teamed up with Grant Morrison, the acclaimed comics author, to pen a draft that could determine if he stays on as star, playing crimefighter Barry Allen.

The development has bubbled up from a clash of creative visions. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who have been on board the project since January 2018, have a light-hearted approach to ...

8 Actors Who Should Replace Ben Affleck as The Batman

8 Actors Who Should Replace Ben Affleck as The Batman
After years of rumors, Ben Affleck is officially out as The Batman in the DC Extended Universe. Affleck gave the role of the Caped Crusader a fighting chance, portraying him in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League, before deciding that the cape and cowl were not right for him.

It's unclear exactly what it was that ruptured the relationship here between Ben Affleck and Warner Bros. Pictures. It could have been the hectic schedule that kept Affleck from other projects, particularly with Justice League, which had an extreme amount of reshoots. It also could have simply been the fact that Affleck was probably more interested in pursuing higher quality roles, considering that all three of his DC movies bombed with critics. No matter the reason, Affleck is now gone, meaning that both DC and the fans need to be more focused on the future rather than the past.

Aquaman’s Mid-Credits Scene Had A Small Flashpoint Teaser

Now that Aquaman has raked in more than one billion dollars at the global box office, it’s probably safe to assume that as long as Warner Bros. continue making enjoyable DC-themed films that resonate with most moviegoers, they should be good from here on out. In fact, recent news even says that more focus is being placed on standalone superhero flicks going forward, as opposed to following the Marvel Studios model.

As you may know, the winds shifted in Burbank several times before we got to this point. Those of you who enjoy keeping up with this kind of stuff should be aware of how a Flashpoint film was being planned before Justice League tanked. Cool as something like that would’ve been to witness on the silver screen, it just wouldn’t have made sense to assemble what would essentially be Jl 1.5 when the first attempt didn’t bring in the desired loot.

Aquaman’s Post-Credits Scene Had A Funny Wonder Woman Easter Egg

The references to the wider Dceu found in the new Aquaman movie may be few and far between, but it seems that James Wan’s picture contains more nods to Arthur Curry’s old Justice League co-stars than initially meets the eye. And since we’re going to be talking about one such Easter Egg that lies at the very end of the film, spoilers lie ahead.

The moment in question comes in the post-credits scene, where Black Manta wakes up in the home of Dr. Stephen Shin. On the wall of the room, we see an assortment of newspaper clippings featuring stories of the mysterious Aquaman, including one which refers to the hero as an “underwater Superman.”

But the shout out that’s really been getting the attention of the fans, and even earned a retweet last night from director Wan himself, is the headline that reads, “Wonder Woman Nixes Aquaman Dating Rumour.

Batman: Major Flashpoint Character Returns in New DC Comic

John Saavedra Dec 5, 2018

The Dark Knight has a run-in with an alternate universe in the latest issue of Tom King's Batman.

This Batman article contains spoilers.

The Caped Crusader has gone rogue, left to pick up the pieces of a shattered engagement to Catwoman and solve a mystery that's already amassed quite the body count. What's Batman's solution to his current problems? Punching everyone in the face, of course.

At the center of the mystery is Bane, the architect of the Dark Knight's latest crisis, who has taken over Arkham Asylum and recruited a band of bad guys to help him break the Bat once and for all. With this group of baddies, the villain has managed to send Bruce's life into turmoil. A back apparently heals much faster than a broken heart.

Ezra Miller promises a “f*cking crazy-dope Flash movie”

It’s coming up to nine months now since it was confirmed that Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters and Game Night directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley had boarded Warner Bros. and DC FilmsThe Flash movie.

Given the lack of official updates since, it appears that the solo film is no further along than it has been at any point since it was first announced announced as part of the initial DC Extended Universe slate. However, speaking to Playboy to promote the release of his new film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, star Ezra Miller has promised that the movie is coming, and when it does, it’ll be “fucking crazy dope”.

The Flash may be the fastest man alive on the comic book pages, but when it comes to the big screen, he’s positively sluggish.

‘Flash’ Film Far From Fast: DC Hero’s Solo Movie On Pace For 2021 Release

‘Flash’ Film Far From Fast: DC Hero’s Solo Movie On Pace For 2021 Release
The Flash may be the “fastest man alive” in the pages of DC Comics but the superhero’s film franchise is taking a slower route to the silver screen. The Warner Bros. plan to give the Justice League character a spin-off screen adventure of his own is still in the running but now it’s looking more like a marathon than a wind sprint.

The Flash is now expected to get filming underway late next year, which puts the superhero movie on pace for a release date sometime in 2021.

The Flash solo film has never secured an official green-light status and studio sources point out that no official release date has ever been announced. But those same studio sources confirmed Monday that a finish line in 2021 was not the target they had hoped for — in relatively recent discussions their best-case scenario had been a March 2019 start-date for filming. Now they

The Flash Movie No Longer Titled Flashpoint?

The Flash Movie No Longer Titled Flashpoint?
It looks like things are once again a little uncertain with The Flash solo movie at Warner Bros. This movie was originally dated for February of this year, but the retooling of the Dceu behind the scenes has led to several delays with the project. However, last year during San Diego Comic-Con the studio revealed that the title of the movie would be Flashpoint, indicating an adaptation of the beloved DC Comics storyline. While this move may very well still be, perhaps loosely, adapting that storyline, it looks like the movie won't be titled Flashpoint anymore.

The news was buried in a report about writer Dan Mazeau being tapped to adapt Ready Player One author Ernest Cline's novel Aramada for the big screen. In THR's report, they say "He worked on the Warner Bros.' Flash movie project when it was titled Flashpoint." So, it seems like the movie,

Flashpoint Movie May Not Adapt The Comic Book Storyline

When Flashpoint was announced last summer at San Diego Comic Con, geeks everywhere were understandably sent into a frenzy, thinking the comic book story arc of the same name would be adapted for film. And, more recently, there was cause for celebration when John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were tapped to direct.

Before we proceed any further, though, let’s make sure everyone’s caught up on the concept.

In 2011, Geoff Johns penned a five-issue miniseries titled Flashpoint that saw the Scarlet Speedster go back in time to save his mother. In doing so, he royally screwed up the timeline, creating a world filled with darker heroes. Eventually, he (kind of) set things right, thereby allowing DC to do a linewide reboot in the form of the New 52.

In the time since, this arc has been quite faithfully adapted as an animated movie, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and

The Batman Director Offers an Encouraging Update

The Batman Director Offers an Encouraging Update
Last month, director Matt Reeves was fending off rumors that he was exiting Warner Bros.' stand-alone movie The Batman, which still has Ben Affleck attached to star, and now the filmmaker has offered a new, yet very brief update. The filmmaker has yet to reveal any specifics about the project, but when asked by a fan, "how it is going on The Batman," the director offered a rather optimistic response. Here's what he had to say when asked how his work on The Batman has been going.

"Really, really well, thanks! I could not be more excited!"

While that response may not be as specific as some fans would like, it does indicate that progress is being made. Whether that progress has anything to do with Ben Affleck remaining a part of the franchise remains to be seen. There have been no shortage of rumors about his involvement in the franchise,

The Flash Dceu Solo Movie May Not Be Titled Flashpoint

Warner Bros.’ solo Flash movie may no longer be titled Flashpoint. When WB announced their DC film slate a few years back, one of the goals was to get two Justice League movies out quickly, and line up solo film for the core members. Among the iconic DC heroes that were set to play a major role was Flash. Once Ezra Miller was cast for a cameo as Barry Allen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans became excited to see more of his take. Unfortunately, his solo movie has been one of the more troubled projects for DC to develop.

Zack Snyder Reveals Whether Flash’s Cameo In Batman V Superman Was Real Or Not

Three years on from its release, and one sequence, in particular, from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice continues to fascinate DC fans. Of course, we’re referring to the “Knightmare” scene, in which Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) receives a vision of a dark future where the world has been subjugated by the forces of Apokolips. At the end of it, Bruce appears to wake when Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) shows up in the Batcave, bringing with him a dire, cryptic warning.

However, as Bruce then wakes up for real and Barry is nowhere to be seen, the reality of this visit is called into question. Comic book readers familiar with the Flash’s ability to travel back in time think they know what’s going on here, though. It’s long been theorized that it’s the Barry from the future seen in the “Knightmare” sequence who’s come
