'Justice League's Ezra Miller Reveals What Villain He Wants The Flash to Fight



The plot of Warner Bros.' upcoming The Flash movie might be a bit of a mystery, but it sounds like there's one storyline that the film's star wouldn't mind bringing to life.

Ezra Miller, who portrayed Barry Allen/The Flash in Suicide Squad and Justice League, was recently asked which villain he'd like his character go toe-to-toe with. While Miller hinted that there are quite a lot of options to choose from, he has one he is fond of in some way.


"There's a lot that just come from the world of The Flash, and various Rogues." Miller revealed during a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia. "It's hard to choose a favorite. Savitar. I really love those plotlines."




Considering the colorful history that Savitar has had over the years, there'd certainly be plenty of storytelling possibilities. In the comics, Savitar was a Cold War-era pilot, who became the "God of Speed" after being struck by lightning. Savitar then became unbelievably powerful, and went on to attempt to kill more speedsters, only to eventually be disintegrated to death by Barry Allen.
And of course, there was the somewhat-loose adaptation of Savitar in the third season of The Flash television show, which reimagined the character a maniacal future incarnation of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).
Weirdly enough, this isn't the first time that Miller's incarnation of The Flash has been at least somewhat connected to Savitar, with one fan creating a pretty awesome piece of fanart of him in the role.


At the moment, it's a pretty big mystery which villain The Flash could face off in his movie, considering the almost-concurrent reports about what the film could look like. Last year, the film began to be dubbed Flashpoint, leading plenty to assume that it would pit Barry against Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash. But in recent months, rumors have suggested that the film could be back to being The Flash, and possibly involve some beloved Rogues in the process.
Essentially, time will only tell what The Flash ends up looking like. But either way, it sounds like the film's newly-minted directors are excited to bring it to life.
"Just the fact that the character is unique from other superheroes in that he doesn't completely have his shit together like Superman does," co-director John Francis Daley explained earlier this year. "It's more of a ground-level superhero."


"It's a relatable way in to a superhero movie in some of the same ways that Peter Parker was for the Marvel side of things," co-director Jonathan Goldstein added.

Possible Leaked Details For THE FLASH Reveal New Intel On The Tone, Villains, And Casting

It's been a while since we've heard anything solid about The Flash but an apparent leak sheds some light on the tone, possible casting additions, and which characters the Scarlet Speedster will battle.




As of right now, the status of the DC Films Universe is very much unclear. While Aquaman, Shazam, and Wonder Woman 2 are all on the way, Warner Bros.' slate beyond that remains a mystery, as do plans for movies like The Batman, Birds of Prey, and The Flash. In regards to the latter, though, some new details have popped up on Reddit this week which definitely make for very interesting reading indeed.

It goes without saying that you should take these with a pinch of salt but this thread detailing all the times the "DCEU Leaks" board has provided accurate intel definitely means we should give them the benefit of the doubt and there's a lot here for fans of the Scarlet Speedster to sink their teeth into.

From The Flash's tone to possible casting ideas for characters like Jay Garrick and Captain Cold, we think you'll enjoy taking a look at this fresh intel, especially as the movie's status has been up in the air for a while now (it was supposed to be released this March originally, remember). So, to take a look at these details and decide whether or not you think they're legit, click on the "View List" button below.

A Comedic Approach With A Simple Story



Something which arguably hurt Zack Snyder's DC Comics adaptations is the fact that the likes of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were very long and somewhat hard to follow for regular moviegoers. As a result, it's no wonder Warner Bros. felt the need to simplify Justice League and that's reportedly what they have in mind for The Flash; a story with "lower stakes" than the films above.

With that in mind, don't expect time travel, alternate realities, or an end of the world level threat because John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein's newest draft is reportedly "very comedic" and a straightforward affair which may point to a simpler (blander?) DC Films Universe moving forward.


The Villains



Ideally, The Flash would feature an epic battle between the Fastest Man Alive and his arch-nemesis the Reverse-Flash but the first season of the TV show did that pretty much perfectly so it's not really a surprise to learn that this movie may be heading in a slightly different direction than expected.

Apparently, The Rogues - who have never really assembled on the small screen - will be the big bads of this adventure and the roster is made up of Captain Cold, Mirror Master, and Weather Wizard. That's not a particularly big roster but it is one which would work in a two-hour movie and their very different skill sets ensure that the Scarlet Speedster will have his hands full when he goes to war with them.

Jay Garrick



As fun as it's been to see Jay Garrick in The CW's The Flash, the character has been somewhat diluted by the fact he's the doppelganger of Barry Allen's father and was originally being impersonated by Zoom. In this movie, it's said that the character will actually be taking on a "mentor role" to the titular hero but there's no word on whether or not he'll end up being a speedster when we meet him here.

My guess would be no because that would be hard to explain and while some fans will no doubt be disappointed seeing him given a generic part in this movie, it could lead to big things down the line.


Iris West And Henry Allen



Kiersey Clemons recently revealed that she will return as Iris West in The Flash after being cut from Justice League and this apparent leak confirms that there are big plans for her in the DC Comics movie.

As was previously reported, Billy Crudup will indeed show up as Henry Allen, a character we were first introduced to in the aforementioned superhero ensemble. He'll presumably remain in prison, though.

Casting The Movie



It's obviously still very early days for The Flash so the casting process has yet to begin. However, this leaker claims that Warner Bros. is hoping to find an A-Lister along the lines of Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise for Jay Garrick. That doesn't necessarily mean those are the actors the studio is actively looking to enter talks with but it gives us an idea of the type of talent we could see as Barry Allen's mentor.

Apparently, Daley and Goldstein are hoping to find actors with "dramatic and comedic chops" for the Rogues so don't get your hopes up about that group necessarily being the most serious villains ever.

Channing Tatum As Captain Cold?



Well, this is...interesting? Apparently, Gambit and 22 Jump Street star Channing Tatum is currently on Warner Bros.' radar to take on the role of Captain Cold. This reportedly stems from the days when Phil Lord and Chris Miller were involved which means this possible casting tidbit makes perfect sense.

There's nothing to say it will happen, of course, and there have been no formal talks with the actor. It's also been quite some time since those two had anything to do with the project so who knows who the current directors envision in that role. Either way, it's pretty hard to imagine a better fit than Tatum!

A Possible Release Date



Take this with a pinch of salt but Warner Bros. is said to be eyeing a 2020 release date for The Flash (it certainly wouldn't be next year at this stage) and that it could follow the example of Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2 by debuting on November or December. That's a hard time of the year to crack but if the studio chooses widely, the Scarlet Speedster could race straight to the top of the box office.

A Much Lighter Take On The Flash



While that new label is going to embrace darker stories, the rest of the DC movies will be moving away from that. The Flash, which the trades notes is set to begin production early next year, has reportedly abandoned the "somber themes" it was originally going to tackle. Now, with John Francis Daly and Jonathan Goldstein on board, the project is said to be using Back to the Future as a touchstone.

Whether or not that means time travel will still be involved obviously remains to be seen for now.

'The Flash' Movie Filming Start Date and Location Reportedly Revealed

Ever since Justice League released to disappointing box office numbers and lackluster fan reaction, fans have been wondering about the future of DC Comics movies. Before the movie premiered, Warner Bros. created a ton of buzz by announcing an ambitious film slate which included Flashpoint.

And while the Flash solo movie, among other projects, seemed to be in a state of uncertainty, Warner Bros. secured Game Night directors (and Spider-Man: Homecoming writers) John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to helm the first Flash solo movie. And now we know it might start filming very soon.

According to an update from Production Weekly, DC Films is set to start rolling on the Flash movie in February of 2019.
It seems like both the Flash solo movie and Birds of Prey will begin filming around the same time in Atlanta, which has become a very popular location for superhero movies from Marvel Studios.

This would line up with the hint provided by Daley when asked by a fan when they should expect his new movie. The director responded ominously and wrote, "If all goes well, sometime in 2020."

The Flash movie has been through a ton of changes ever since it was first revealed, to being renamed Flashpoint after the infamous Andy Kubert and Geoff Johns comic, to director Rick Famuyiwa leaving the project.

There were recent rumors that the film would be adopting a Back to the Future-esque vibe, which would make sense since Warner Bros. actively courted director Robert Zemeckis to helm the film.

But now that the Game Night directors have been secured, it seems like progress has steadily moved forward. Even star Ezra Miller seems to be excited about the project, and he has recently met with the directors to speak about the tone of the movie.

"I met them recently," Miller said at Wizard World Philadelphia. "They're really, really, really cool guys. I really like their work a lot, and I think they're really great."

After months of radio silence, we really hope that work is starting to pick up on a Flash movie. He's a breath of fresh air in the DC Universe and could be a major boost to Warner Bros. after their series of missteps to kickstart their superhero franchise.

The Flash, which will star Ezra Miller in the title role as Barry Allen, has now been confirmed to commence production in February 2019 and is also presumably looking at a potential 2020 release date. Game Night directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley will be helming the long-awaited solo feature with a script from Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword). In addition to Miller, Kiersey Clemons and Billy Crudup are expected to feature as Iris West and Henry Allen, respectively. Fellow Justice Leaguers Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman 1984) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) have also been rumored to appear, but the status on both is uncertain at best.

The Flash Movie Begins Production in February 2019 [Update]









Update: Discussing Film reports The Flash movie will start filming on February 5.


Ezra Miller's solo The Flash movie may start filming in February 2019. Miller is part of the old-guard of Warner Bros. and DC's movie universe. He was cast by Zack Snyder and made cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. It wasn't until last year when he got a bigger role in Justice League, where Miller's comedic take on the scarlet speedster won over many. His scene-stealing role came at the perfect time as the studio made his solo movie a big priority for them.


Game Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will direct the movie based on a script from Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword). Miller is set to take on the leading role for the solo adventure, which doesn't appear to be a Flashpoint adaptation anymore. Story and character details could begin to surface soon, as we may be just a couple months away from the start of filming.

PursueNews shared the latest intel on The Flash that comes from new listings by Production Weekly. According to the report, The Flash is scheduled to start filming in February of 2019. Although the film has previously been linked to London as its home for production, it now appears that the movie will be filming in Atlanta.


<img class=" lazyloaded">

This isn't the first time The Flash has been linked to an early 2019 start, but this is the firmest schedule that's surfaced so far. As long as nothing else changes, then we could start to get further casting information as 2018 comes to a close. The only cast member confirmed to be in the movie besides Miller is Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. She stayed on the production despite being hired when Rick Famuyiwa was set to direct and filmed scenes for Justice League that did not make the final cut. Billy Crudup is also likely going to be part of the cast, as he has made his debut as Henry Allen already.


With the filming schedule for The Flash becoming more clear, it continues to look likely that the movie will hit a 2020 release, which has previously been teased by the directors. It also further guarantees the film will be part of a very busy production schedule for Warner Bros. and DC. Birds of Prey is also reportedly scheduled to begin filming in early 2019, and Matt Reeves is hopeful his The Batman reboot will film in the spring. With movies like Black Adam and Suicide Squad 2 also linked to possible 2019 shoots, the future of DC on the big screen is bright, and The Flash is one of these several exciting projects that'll be here before we know it.

'The Flash' Movie Expected to Wrap Filming by May 2019


The Flash solo film has had a long trek to get to the big screen, and we might have an idea of how speedy production will be.

A new report from The Geeks Worldwide suggests that The Flash is planning on finishing principal photography sometime in May of 2019. Previous reporting has suggested that the film will begin shooting on February 5, 2019, with production taking place in both Leavesden, England, and in Atlanta, Georgia.

This would place The Flash's production schedule at around three months, something that is fairly normal for superhero blockbusters of this kind. It also could signify that DC Films is wanting The Flash to hit the big screen sometime in 2020, which co-director John Francis Daley hinted at earlier this summer.

The Flash is just the latest DC film to be on its way to production, with the Joker origin movie set to film this fall and Birds of Prey scheduled for January of next year. If The Flash does keep this production schedule, it could mean some great news for The Batman fans, as the film is rumored to begin production sometime after The Flash.
The Flash has been a bit of an enigma for DC Comics fans, as the film has gone through various iterations and directors since being announced at the start of the DC Extended Universe. Last year, the film began to be dubbed Flashpoint, leading plenty to assume that it would place Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) in a DC Extended Universe-changing adventure. But in recent months, rumors have suggested that the film could be back to being The Flash, and possibly become a much smaller scale, Back to the Future-esque story in the progress.

Even with all of that hub bub, it sounds like the film's directors — Daley and Jonathan Goldstein — are excited to bring the whole thing to life.

"Just the fact that the character is unique from other superheroes in that he doesn't completely have his shit together like Superman does," Daley explained earlier this year. "It's more of a ground-level superhero.

"It's a relatable way in to a superhero movie in some of the same ways that Peter Parker was for the Marvel side of things," Goldstein added.

"I met [Daley and Goldstein] recently," Miller revealed at a convention appearance earlier this year. "They're really, really, really cool guys. I really like their work a lot, and I think they're really great."

Are you excited to see The Flash become a reality? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Sounds Like DC's The Flash Movie Isn't Starting Any Time Soon

DC's live-action film franchise has had an interesting run so far. Man of Steel was a backdoor pilot for the DCEU, with large ensemble projects like Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice quickly filling out the ranks of the shared universe. But DC has also announced a ton of movies, with no concrete release date in sight. One of these is Ezra Miller's Flash movie, which has seen a handful of directors depart the project since its inception. It's currently unclear when the Scarlet Speedster will finally get his own flick, although actress Kiersey Clemons recently updated fans about the upcoming blockbuster's path. As the future Iris West actress explained,
I mean, we have a little bit of an idea kind of who our director is, but I can't say that. But I talk with Ezra [Miller] frequently and we'll see. We can't say anything until you guys know.

Without a director attached to the project, even the most beginning stages of The Flash's development have been put on hold. And while Kiersey Clemons explained that the studio is circling a new director(s), it's clear that fans shouldn't hold their breath while the upcoming blockbuster figures itself out
News of The Flash's slow development will no doubt be frustrating for DC fans out there, especially given the character's introduction in Justice League. After a quick cameo in BvS, Ezra Miller's Barry Allen became a full fledged member of the DCEU with Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon's ensemble flick. While Justice League was ultimately a box office and critical disappointment, The Flash proved to be one of the film's strongest points-- providing a welcomed change of pace and sense of humor.
In her same conversation with Variety, Kiersey Clemons gave a more specific time frame to ponder, revealing her schedule is booked for the foreseeable future, and that hopefully the project will move forward in a more concrete way in 2019. As she tells it,
What I will say is that they get to approve every job that I do and, so far, I'm not doing Flash for the rest of the year, we know that. I'm doing other things. But let's hope for 2019.

What a bummer. It looks like The Flash isn't moving with its character's speed, and DC is instead focusing on projects like Aquaman, Shazam!, and Wonder Woman 1984.
The Flash movie has had a hard time toward development, having lost a ton of directors over the past few years. This process, one that has happened twice now, has obviously slowed the movie's planning to a halt. Directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were the latest rumored to be helming the blockbuster, although there has been no official confirmation from the studio. Still, it seems like that's who Kiersey Clemons is referencing in her comments.

CinemaBlend will keep you updated on all things DC and Flash. In the meantime, check out our 2018 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

No, The Flash Movie’s Directors Haven’t Dropped The Project

The big screen Flash movie has had a history of trouble holding onto to directors. However, earlier this year the team of Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein signed on to helm the upcoming project, and it appears that the pair are hard at work, which debunks recent rumors that they are the most recent directors to leave the film.

Quote:
Umberto Gonzalez

@elmayimbe
Zero truth. Daley and Goldstein are still on THE FLASH and were at the studio just last week.
Jack Walsh
@JackDivine
Replying to @elmayimbe
Rumors been making the rounds the last half hour that the directors might be out. Any truth?
9:34 PM - Sep 13, 2018

The word comes from Umberto Gonzalez of The Wrap who says that any rumors that the directors behind Vacation and Game Night have left the film are simply untrue, citing an apparent meeting between them and Warner Bros. as recently as last week. He also says that, while nobody has seen a script for the film, he confirms it will apparently not be a Flashpoint movie as previously announced. Even though nobody has seen a script, there seems to be one, or there is very nearly one, as the film is looking to go into production in 2019, no later than May.

It's certainly good news that Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein haven't left The Flash, as they would just be the most recent directors to exit a project that has had serious trouble getting up to speed. Originally Seth Grahame-Smith was put in the director's chair, but he left and was eventually replaced by Rick Famuyiwa. Then Famuyiwa left the film himself in October of 2016. While many names were rumored for the project since then, it remained a ship without a captain until Daley and Goldstein came along.
The confirmation that The Flash is apparently moving along as expected is good news for a DC universe that saw things get a little crazy when a report emerged claiming Henry Cavill was leaving the role of Superman. While it's now less clear how accurate that report actually was, it still leaves a lot of people scratching their heads about just what the plan is for DC's film universe. However, the short-term actually looks pretty good. Aquaman is ready to go at the end of the year and Shazam! and Wonder Woman '84 are scheduled for 2019. If The Flash is looking at an early 2019 production start it could be the next movie in the franchise coming out in the spring or summer of 2020. There are also rumblings we could see one of the multitude Harley Quinn projects in development go before cameras soon.

While we may not know when we're going to see Superman on the big screen, it looks like everything is working out when it comes to getting The Flash there.

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.
The Flash standalone movie has been hit with yet another delay, as Warner Bros. pushes back the expected production start date for Ezra Miller‘s solo superhero film. Now it seems that Miller, who was cast as the scarlet speedster back in 2014, will have to wait at least three more years until he gets his solo movie.
Variety reports that The Flash solo movie has been delayed again, and you may have to blame Fantastic Beasts for that. After facing numerous delays and a rotating line-up of directors, Warner Bros. is again pushing back the start of filming on the still untitled standalone Flash movie, which had originally been expected to begin shooting in March 2019.
The reported reason is that Miller’s obligations to the third Fantastic Beasts movie took precedence. The third film in the Harry Potter spin-off series, in which Miller plays a key supporting character, begins shooting in July 2019. And since The Flash movie — which curiously, never received an official green light from the studio — is still undergoing script revisions, the studio decided to push production to late 2019, putting the potential The Flash release date on track for 2021.
Warner Bros. has been particularly slow to get The Flash solo movie to the big screen. After the studio cast Miller in the role of the speedster to much fanfare in 2014, the actor made his first appearance in the DC Extended Universe in a cameo in 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. He made his proper debut in 2017’s Justice League, whose weak box office returns sent Warner Bros. in a frenzy over the future of the fledgling cinematic universe. 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. Currently, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the co-writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming, are attached as the directors for the untitled Flash movie.
The Flash and Cyborg standalone movies have sadly been the biggest victims of Warner Bros.’ tenuous grasp on its DC cinematic universe. Both superheroes were intended to follow up 2017’s Justice League with solo outings of their own, but this year’s Aquaman and April’s Shazam are the last solo superhero movies on the docket. Now I have to wonder if we’ll get a Flash movie at all, or if he’ll be consigned to the void like Ray Fisher’s potential Cyborg movie. If the latter, it would be too bad, because Miller’s zippy performance as the Flash was one of the few bright spots of Justice League. But perhaps — ironically in the Flash’s case — slow and steady to the big screen could allow the hero to win the race.
