‘The Flash’ has earned its place of being the most turbulent DCEU offering. And it’s not even out yet. But it finally, FINALLY, looks like things might be on track. Producer Barbara Muscheitti has offered a slight update on the film. Replying to an Instagram comment, she said ‘It’s coming! News very soon!’
The History of ‘The Flash’
‘The Flash’ is set to follow Ezra Miller’s version of the character, after appearing in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Justice League’. The film was originally scheduled for release in 2018, but unless Barry has messed with the timelines, that definitely never happened.
Seth Grahame-Smith was originally going to direct, before passing the job on to Rick Famuyiwa. After that, and a series of delays, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were announced. But not for long. Shortly, after ‘IT’ director, Andy Muschietti stepped up to the plate. And the film is now scheduled for a June 2o22 release.
DC have recently announced a virtual FanDome event. Described as a ‘multimedia virtual fan experience’ it’s DC’s version of San Diego Comic Con. It’s free to attend virtually and will take place in August. Presumably, an update for ‘The Flash’ movie will take place during this event.
So far, all we know about the movie is that it will adapt the famous ‘Flashpoint’ arc from the comics.

Director Muschietti previously talked to Fandango about working on the film. Unlike ‘IT’, ‘The Flash’ won’t be a horror film. He went on to explain,
‘What captivated me about The Flash is the human drama in it. The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.
The next instalment in the DCEU is set to be Wonder Woman 1984 in October. Following that in 2021, will be The Suicide Squad, The Batman and Black Adam.
