According to Variety John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are in talks with Warner Bros. to direct the solo Flash movie starring Ezra Miller. Given the pairs background in film it looks to be a reasonable choice as they were the script writers for one of the most successful movies of last year Spider-Man: Homecoming. The studio are hoping that they will bring some of what they brought to the Spider-Man film to the Flash as they ‘eye a comedic tone for the film’. It’s also interesting to note that the studio also approached Ben Affleck to direct the Flash movie who actually turned it down. As someone who loved Argo and The Town which Affleck directed, It would’ve been interesting to see what he would have brought to the Flash.
Either way as a huge fan of the Flash it’s great to see that this film is being pushed into production by the studio. After seeing numerous directors leave the film I was worried for the future of the project but they look to be going in the right direction now and rightly so! Ezra Miller’s portrayal of the Flash and Barry Allen in Justice League became a fan favourite for many. Personally I can’t wait to see Ezra Miller as the Flash starring in his own movie because in a short time he has already shown what he can bring to the role.
