'The Flash' Solo Movie Loses Its Director Again!


Breaking news folks! Director Rick Famuyiwa has officially left Warner Bros. and DC Films' Flash solo movie!

According to THR Famuyiwa left the project due to his edgier take on the project, which lead to him and Warner Bros. clashing over the vision for the film.

Famuyiwa had the following to say in a statement:

“When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humor, and heart.

While it’s disappointing that we couldn’t come together creatively on the project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical, and multicultural point of view. I wish Warner Brothers, DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force.”

The film is already well into pre-production with much of the core cast already in place. So this has to be a huge deal blow for the future of the film. I'd definitely expect a delay on the expected release date.
