Rumor: Flash Movie To Begin Filming This Year

Since the big success of Aquaman, I had my concerns that the upcoming projects from DC, which all seemed to revolve around Harley Quinn were less appealing to me. Where was Superman, Batman, and the Flash? We already know Wonder Woman 1984 is coming soon and it seems like Aquaman 2 is being fast-tracked, but we have also heard that a movie centered on the creatures of The Trench in Aquaman was also being fast-tracked. All in all I have my doubts about the way DC movies are going.

However, we may well now be moving along with Ezra Miller’s solo Flash movie. According to outlet GWW, they have heard that the Flash movie will begin filming this year. This could indicate a release date of 2021, which would be the year we also expect to see Matt Reeves The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Saying that, if Flash is set to film this year and we know The Suicide Squad is currently casting, it puts both these films ahead of Matt Reeves The Batman, which seems to never be progressing (though, maybe we just don’t know the details).

The Flash movie will be written by Spider-Man: Homecoming scribes Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley who will also direct the movie, which will once again star Ezra Miller. Miller’s involvement in the on-going Fantastic Beasts franchise (also owned by WB) is reportedly one of the main reasons for the delay. But with Fantastic Beasts 3 currently delayed after the lukewarm reception to the sequel, WB seems to be moving up Flash as a priority, if this rumor checks out?

Laying my cards on the table there are two major things I want to see from a Flash movie. I wasn’t a fan of Ezra’s take on the role in Justice League, I felt like they were trying to make him the Spider-Man kid character and I just don’t see Flash like that personally. So for me, I want to see Ezra’s take mature and have more confidence in his abilities, but with the writers of this movie having also written Homecoming, it’s a worry for me. I would also love to see them do something grand which resets the universe a little i.e. Flashpoint, because the DCEU could do with a good kick up the backside and they need an explanation for why Batman is suddenly going to be far younger going forward. I guess I am looking for a rather dark and mature movie and I can’t see that happening here, but we can only judge a film on its own merits, not our own lofty expectations.

What do you think of the prospects of a Flash movie in 2021, what would you like to see from the Scarlet Speedsters first movie? Zip down into the comments section and quickly leave your thoughts.
