It sounds like the brass over at Warner Bros. are pretty happy with Ezra Miller’s performance as the Flash in their upcoming film Justice League. According to Wall Street Journal (in a story with literally a handful of other stories embedded in it), they think Flash will be the breakout character of the film, and as a result, they are prioritizing the production of Flashpoint, the standalone Flash movie.

That’s not all. Wall Street Journal writer Ben Fritz also took to Twitter to share some news NOT in the piece. According to him, Warner Bros. chief content officer Toby Emmerich said they’re closer to hiring a director for Flashpoint, and that he hopes to greenlight it soon.

As we’ve heard in the past, the studio is still likely waiting to see how Justice League performs before they lock down or announce anything, but it’s nice to see that they have some sort of plan. They are just sitting on their hands, waiting and hoping for the green light to act.

As far as the Flash goes, he’s been one of the highlights of the trailers, in this writer’s opinion, and we can’t wait to see what dynamic he brings to the League as a whole.
