The Flash (Under Talented Ezra Miller and Overrated Comic Hack Writer Grant Morrison Working on Garbage Script)

Post by WyldeMan on 10/5/2015, 9:23 am



Seth Grahame-Smith is in talks to direct the movie adaptation of “The Flash” for Warner Bros.

Charles Roven is producing the film, based on the studio’s DC Entertainment property about the crime-fighting superhero who can move at superhuman speeds. Zack Snyder and wife Deborah Snyder are executive producing.

The character, created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, first appeared in Flash Comics #1 in 1940. The TV series “The Flash,” developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns, began airing on the CW last October.

“The Flash” would mark Grahame-Smith’s feature directorial debut. He would helm from his own script. Grahame-Smith is the author of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” and the screenwriter of Warner Bros.’s upcoming “Lego Batman.”

“The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller, will hit theaters on March 3, 2018. The character will be introduced in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in March and appear in “Justice League: Part One” in 2017.

This is interesting. I'm only a little disappointed with the casting so far.

Yes, they announced that like a year ago when everybody else was. I'm not happy with casting or the choice in director and as big of a DC fan as I am, as long as there's Gustin I have no interest in Miller.

Creators Going for "Tech-Based" Costume
The CW's TV incarnation of DC Comics' The Flash may be a ratings hit, but it's not the only version of the superhero in the works.

Warner Bros is currently putting together a movie version of The Flash as part of its DC Cinematic Universe, which began with Man Of Steel in 2013 and will continue with next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The Flash isn't out until 2018, which means it's rather too early for Warner to begin the drip-feed of early images and other details we've enjoyed with the likes of 2017's Wonder Woman. What we currently know is that Ezra Miller is in the lead as The Flash himself, and that screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith is making his debut as director on the movie. He'll also be writing the script, based on a story previously worked on by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

We've also recently learned, thanks to a source who has inside information on the movie, that the filmmakers behind The Flash have a quite specific look in mind as they design the superhero's outfit.

Understandably, they're seeking to avoid "any comparison to the well designed and received TV version," we're told. To ring the changes, they're aiming to create a more "tech-based" suit that will look quite different from the burgundy leather outfit designed by Colleen Atwood for the series. Instead, this one will look more "like armor."

When it comes to The Flash's movie costume, a comparison has been made to the version of the hero seen in the videogame Injustice: Gods Among Us. You can immediately see the differences between the clean, classic-looking TV show costume, and the spiky, more aggressive one presented in the videogame: 

The design choice seems to fit with the rest of the DCU we've seen so far; Superman's costume in Man Of Steel was all muted tones and tough, kevlar-like texture. In Batman v Superman, meanwhile, we'll be seeing the Caped Crusader wear both a classic cloth outfit and a heavily-armoured Batsuit -- all the better for taking on the Son of Jor-El. Even the Wonder Woman costume we've seen so far has a weighty, armor-like feel to it -- though this may not be the only outfit the warrior princess will wear through the course of the movie.

According to our source, Ezra Miller's Barry Allen is now something of a "tech geek," which also seems logical given his day-job -- that of a forensic scientist.

Of course, The Flash is still three years away, and things may change as Grahame-Smith guides the film to completion, but we're intrigued to see what the big-screen take will look like.

There’s the one we know well, played by Grant Gustin on The CW’s The Flash.

And there’s the one we know basically nothing about, to be played by Ezra Miller in Zach Synder’s upcoming Justice League movie (and very possibly making a cameo in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice).  

We spoke to Miller on the set of one his other upcoming films — the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, where he plays the mysterious son of an anti-wizard crusader — and we asked how his version of The Flash will be different than previous versions we’ve seen. The actor didn’t reveal anything specific but gave us the impression of a more flawed character.

“Well, [first] it’s going to be a movie,” he said. “I’d like for it to be an exploration of a human being, a multi-dimensional human being, to speak.” Miller pauses. “Wow, I just made such a pun, without meaning to!” he says, referring to The Flash’s parallel universe storyline in the comics. Miller continues: “I’d like the character to have many dimensions. But really, I’d like him to have the usual dimensions we know and love, and then some extra ones that are part of the amazing consideration of this superhero. I hope to realize him as a person, and I think what’s most exciting for me in superhero mythologies is when we feel the humanity of someone who is heroic — or the heroism of someone who is a flawed, deeply human person.”

After Miller was cast as Allen, The CW’s Arrow star Stephen Amell gave the opinon that The Flash star Grant Gustin should have been cast in the big-screen version instead — while also noting that the DC universe is big enough for the both of them (and if it isn’t, well … there’s always more universes)

RUMOR: Are These The 5 Supporting Characters Currently Being Cast For THE FLASH?
Are these the 5 characters that'll join the Faster Man Alive in The Flash? Heroic Hollywood reckons a casting call they've got a look at reveals who we'll see backing up/taking down Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) in the Scarlet Speedster's 2018 solo outing.

The names will be very familiar to fans of both the DC source materiel and CW's small screen take - but the site stresses that Iris West is the only character that actresses are currently testing for, so the others may be subject to change.

   IRIS WEST: Iris West is described in the breakdown as having Christiane Amanpour’s brains and Carrie Bradshaw’s style. An overcaffinated doe. A reporter at The Central City Citizen. Actresses are currently testing for this part.

   EOBARD THAWNE: Eobard Thawne is described in the breakdown as Central City’s Bill Gates. The smartest man in the room and he suffers from advanced degenerative disease like Stephen Hawking. Thawne is confined to a chair.

   FRED CHYRE: Fred Chyre is described in the breakdown as a gruff detective who first meets Barry at the scene of a crime. Now they’re colleagues and the closest thing Barry has to a friend. Chryre is investigating the unusual death of someone at Thawne Laboratories

   LEN SNART: Len Snart is described in the breakdown as being ex-military and turns out to be working for Thawne. Have a feeling he is the muscle the way Anatoli Knyazev (aka the KGBEAST) was the muscle for Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

   JAY GARRICK: Jay Garrick is described in the breakdown as being a former Central University professor who was fired for fringe science, and was working on the speed force program. Supposedly his role is just a cameo.


Fans will probably have expected some of these guys (such as Iris and Captain Cold), but the inclusion of the likes of Reverse-Flash (the breakdown for Thawne is pretty much word-for-word his small screen counterpart) and Jay Garrick would seem to be an odd move as it suggests the movie will draw heavily from one of the main arcs of the CW series.

'The Flash' Movie Loses Its Director
The Flash movie has lost its director.

Seth Grahame-Smith is leaving the Warner Bros. project due to “creative differences,” THR has learned.

Grahame-Smith, the author and screenwriter of such works as Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was to have made his directorial debut on the project that was based on the iconic DC Entertainment scarlet speedster super hero.

The project will retain Grahame-Smith’s script, which he wrote working off a treatment from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Lego Movie duo that were once eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.

Flash already has a release date – March 3, 2018 – and an actor who portrays the classic hero known as "the fastest man alive" – Ezra Miller, and there is plenty of time for the studio to find a director.

Miller’s Flash, aka. Barry Allen, was introduced in a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and is now shooting Justice League Part 1, which will be released in the summer of 2017.

Grahame-Smith still remains involved in other Warners project. He is a writer on the studio’s Lego Batman Movie and is working on Beetlejuice 2.

They should let Ben Affleck write and direct this. Shocked

Screw it. Give Ben Affleck this whole DC Universe franchise. Pay him a billion dollars, a blank check, and let him do it all. Not sure one guy can handle all of that, though. Razz

I mentioned him because he has appeared in all four films that Affleck has written and directed including the one they just filmed a few months ago "They Live By Night" so it's a very real possibility Ben brings him into The Batman. Also, I recently got all caught up on Bosch and it reminded me of why I've long been a Welliver fan.

'The Flash' Finds New Director With 'Dope' Filmmaker
The Flash has a new director.

Just weeks after Warner Bros. parted ways with Seth Grahame-Smith, who was to make his directorial debut with the project, the studio has set another newbie for the gig: Rick Famuyiwa, who made a splash with his Sundance sensation, Dope.

The project will retain Grahame-Smith’s script, which he wrote working off of a treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Lego Movie duo who once were eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.



The Flash already has a release date — March 16, 2018 — and a star, Ezra Miller, who's portraying the classic hero known as "the fastest man alive."  The actor made his debut in Batman v Superman.

After directing 2002’s Brown Sugar and 2010 romantic comedy Our Family Wedding, Famuyiwa caught the industry’s eye with Dope, the 2015 film that was a breakout at Sundance and won the prize for best editing. He recently helmed HBO’s original film Confirmation, starring Kerry Washington as Anita Hill.

DOPE Star Kiersey Clemons Joins THE FLASH As Iris West

Kiersey Clemons has closed a deal to star opposite Ezra Miller in “The Flash” movie.

Variety first reported earlier this month that she was the top choice for the female lead in the Warner Bros. film.

Insiders reveal that Clemons is likely to play Iris West, the tough-as-nails journalist and friend of Barry Allen, the Flash’s alter ego.

“The Flash” had to overcome the hurdle of replacing the film’s original director, Seth Grahame-Smith, who parted ways with the project over creative differences. “Dope” helmer Rick Famuyiwa took over directing duties in June. The movie, however, appears to be able to meet its planned start date. Production is expected to commence sometime this year.

The studio is keeping Smith’s most recent draft of the script, which is based on a treatment by Chris Miller and Phil Lord.

Clemons’ star has risen significantly since her breakout performance in “Dope.” She landed a role as one of Chloe Moretz’s sorority sisters in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” as well as one of the leads in Sony’s remake of “Flatliners.”

In the New 52, Iris and Wally West are black. We're never going to see our redheaded Iris in live-action because she was erased in the New 52 and Geoff Johns is in control of both the comics and the DCMU.

THE FLASH: Production Timeline And Location For DC Film Revealed

Rick Famuyiwa's THE FLASH will be the first film of the Geoff Johns Era of the DCEU. The film, which will find Ezra Miller front-and-center as Barry Allen for the first time, now has a start date and a location. It would appear that Miller better get comfortable living in London for a while. He's currently there filming JUSTICE LEAGUE with director Zack Snyder, and it is now being reported that THE FLASH will start filming there as well, starting in January of 2017.

Joby Harold to Do Page-One 'Flash' Rewrite
While “The Flash” waits to find its new director, Warner Bros. has tapped Joby Harold to do a page-one rewrite to the script, sources tell Variety.

The pic has been on hold since losing director Rick Famuyiwa and while it waits to find his replacement, the studio has decided to take script in different direction.

WB had no comment.

Executives have been taking their time in finding his replacement. With Ezra Miller, who will play the speedy superhero, getting ready to shoot “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2,” they decided work on a new script in the meantime.

Famuyiwa had written the latest draft. Sources say the original reason for his departure had to do with executives disagreeing with where he had taken the script. Seth Grahame-Smith had also written a previous draft.

Kiersey Clemons is attached to play Iris West, and Billy Crudup will play Miller’s father.

Harold has past ties to the studio, having most recently written “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Other projects in development include a new “Robin Hood: Origins” movie for Lionsgate, as well as a “Twilight Zone” film for the studio.

New 'Flashpoint' Title Suggests It Could Shake Up the DC Universe
Wait…Flashpoint?

The announcement that Warner Bros' solo Flash movie will, apparently, be called Flashpoint  (or perhaps Flash: Flashpoint, it's unclear) during the studio's San Diego Comic-Con presentation Saturday morning was a surprise on multiple fronts. For one thing, just the fact that the movie isn't called The Flash might seem unusual, until you remember that it's in the WB's best interests to find some way of differentiating the movie from the TV show of the same name (despite the fact that both feature versions of the same character).

However, Flashpoint isn't a title with no resonance for the Flash as a character; it's the name of a five-issue 2011 comic book series that was later adapted (in concept only) as the plot engine for the first half of the third season of the CW series — the idea that DC's Fastest Man Alive would use his powers to go back in time to save the life of his mother, only to wreck the timeline as a result.

In the TV version of the plot, things were (mostly) returned to normal within an hour, albeit with specific aftershocks that drove future episodes. In the comic book story, however — written by Geoff Johns, who not coincidentally is now in charge of DC's movie output — things are far more complicated: The "Flashpoint" universe rewrites the larger DC Universe in a way that creates alternate versions of Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Superman and Green Lantern…all of whom exist within the DC movieverse, and are primed for an alternate take that could put a spotlight on the (unchanged) Flash in a way that few other storylines could follow.

I wonder if this is part of the rumor about replacing Affleck.

I've always wondered if JDM's casting as Thomas Wayne would lead to a Flashpoint Batman though, in some form.

Exactly! Not that surprising because we all expected Flashpoint to wipe all the DCEU mess. I don't want Affleck gone though. And I'm not convinced of Ezra as Flash.

Maybe The Flashpoint will result in a Flash that I don't hate three years before his movie comes out.

Because the studio realized way too late that Ezra Miller was a stupid choice and a casting couch audition should not have determined The Flash.

Regardless of the casting u kinda have to establish Barry Allen's life and why he thinks it sucks before u move on the a movie where he decides he needs to change something. U also need to establish the Flash can go back in time. As JL already seems a bit busy to be fleshing out the Flash ur talking about doing both those things in the first act of Flashpoint. Makes no sense to me.

They should Kill Barry Allen because it's the only mercy the character will be given now.

They got the character all wrong, as good as Ezra is, he was miscast. Bradley Cooper would have been a better choice, would have been convincing as an older Barry I think. I hope I'm wrong after watching the movie though but it looks like WB also thinks he's not a good fit because why do a Flashpoint this early? They'll get rid of Affleck and Ezra and maybe the rest of the actors which would suck because Gal, Jason and Ray are perfect.

‘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 say that is simply too impractical due to scheduling conflicts.

The primary issue they cited is the schedule of the movie’s lead actor. Ezra Miller, who portrayed the Flash in Justice League (2017), and is tabbed to reprise the role, is already locked-in for duty in another high-profile Warner Bros. project: Fantastic Beasts.

Miller plays Credence Barebone in that spin-off of Harry Potter and its magical mythology. Miller is needed on-set in July to start work on a third Fantastic Beasts installment.

The new target of a 2021 release was first reported by Variety on Monday. But Warner Bros. has struggled for years to get The Flash project up and running. Filmmaking tandem Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) were on board to direct back in 2015 ; then Seth-Grahame-Smith (who wrote the film’s script) was considered the ideal director. The following year Dope director Rick Famuyiwa was the new name in the mix.

The studio has invested a lot of time and effort with not much to show in return. Warner Bros. shareholders, meanwhile, have been hearing about the ramping movie (and Miller’s participation in it) as far back as October 2014.

The Flash has a long and illustrious publishing history in comic books that dates back to 1940 although that original FDR-era version of the character is quite different than the hero Miller portrayed in Justice League. Miller’s Flash wears a mask to protect his secret identity as Barry Allen, and that version of the Flash has a comics heritage that trace back to 1956.

The fleet-footed DC hero already has a screen franchise of his own but it’s on the small screen: The CW has aired the live-action primetime series called The Flash since 2014. The show stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and as his red-suited alias but the series differs from Miller’s version in notable ways, including tone and canon.

LOL! They can't possibly be serious. 3 years is plenty of time to forget about Miller's Flash, reboot or recast and come back stronger.

There are talks about Henry no longer being Superman now too. WB/DC............you dumb fucks.

7 years from casting to the screen, that's a schedule that would make Jim Cameron blush.

Superman is getting blackwashed, he'll be Michael B Jordan the next time he flies.

'Flash' Shocker: Ezra Miller Writing Script in Bid to Stay On as Star (Exclusive)
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 the material (and even hail from that sort of background, with credits like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Game Night). And, as sources note, that is the general track favored by Warners, which scored a billion-dollar hit with Aquaman by going the fun spectacle route and is seeing strong buzz on Shazam!, which is wearing its “superheroics is fun” on its sleeve .

Miller is said to want a darker take on the material.

The two sides have been working on compromises since last year but Miller took the initiative to tackle the story himself. He partnered with Morrison, with Warners hiring the two to script their take. It is a rare move for an actor to be so invested in a superhero project that they switch hats, but Miller sees himself as deeply committed to the character.

Despite its namesake, Flash has been anything but in its journey to the silver screen, going through several directors and writers. Miller, however, has been a constant, having been first cast by filmmaker Zack Snyder for the role in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and embracing the role fully in Justice League.

The script could be submitted to the studio as early as next week.

But there could be a lot riding on it. If Warners chooses against Miller's take on the hero, the actor could part ways with the project. Additionally, and fittingly for a hero who races to beat the clock, there is a countdown scenario here as well: according to one insider, Miller’s holding deal on Flash expires May.


Despite the clashes on Flash, Miller remains a presence on the Warners lot. He has played a key character in the studio’s Fantastic Beasts movies and is expected to shoot the third installment at the end of this year.

Ezra is going against what the studio wants now by returning to the darker DC movies they failed so miserably at for many years because he's such an accomplished writer at that, he can succeed where all others have failed.

I can't wait till the new script gets tossed in the trash so this fruit cake can prance his way back to Hogwarts where he belongs.
