‘The Flash’ Movie Production Pushed Back, Now Eyeing a 2021 Release Date

The Flash solo film has yet to reach official green-light status and no official release date has been announced. Originally, the Flash movie was going to be directed by Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, but has since been taken over by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, writers of last year's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

While details about the Flash film are still under wraps, fans can expect Miller and Kiersey Clemons to lead the project, with the latter finally making her debut as Iris West after being cut from Justice League. After facing numerous delays and a rotating line-up of directors, Warner 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.

This is starts with the fact that the script is still being worked on and Warner Bros. does not think that it will have enough time to get it finished in time for the film to make its original start date.

That means Game 4 is as close to a must-win for the Dodgers as it gets without literally being a must-win game. It's the same Barnes for whom fans were chanting a night earlier as Grandal was struggling.

Thanks to the lackluster response to Justice League, Warner Bros. has had to rethink its plans for the DC Extended Universe films. The third film of that franchise will begin shooting in July, which would cause scheduling conflicts. Now we are a few months away from the release of Aquaman and next year we'll see a Wonder Woman sequel. Sure, we've got Aquaman coming out, but with Cavill's Superman up in the air, Shazam! seeming to play mostly on its own, Batman development focussing on his early years, and Wonder Woman 1984 being set in 1984, the steady march towards universe building feels very disparate.
