It’s no secret that DC Films’ Flash movie has hit some speed bumps. The film lost two directors over creative differences, with a new screenwriter hired last year. This past summer, it was confirmed that the movie would be titled Flashpoint, adapting the groundbreaking DC storyline. Now, the movie may finally have a director…well, two directors really.
According to Variety, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (who helmed the last Vacation movie) are in talks to direct Flashpoint. The two have past comic book movie experience, as they were two of six writers on Spider-Man: Homecoming.
WB had also courted Ben Affleck to direct Flashpoint, but the
former Batman actor passed. Affleck was once attached to direct The Batman, but he dropped out, and his script is being replaced by director Matt Reeves’.
Flashpoint will star Ezra Miller as Flash, reprising his role from Justice League. The movie’s cast also includes Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Ben Affleck is rumored to make his Batman exit with a role in this movie.
Flashpoint will reportedly hit theaters sometime in 2020.
