The path to release Ezra Miller’s solo Flash movie has certainly been a long and loud one. After Miller’s take on the character appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017’s Justice League, Flash was on pace to be one of the next DC heroes with his feature film. Things seem to be on the right track, and the current creative team is ready to get Flash up and running.
Flash to be Christina Hudson’s new project
Bumblebee and Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson were hired to pen the script, and IT director Andy Muschietti to helm The Flash. At an event this week, promoting Birds of Prey, a reporter was on hand to speak with Hodson about The Flash and why now is the right time for her to take on the project.
The writer explained that she started working on Birds of prey around four and a half years ago, and that is how she got to build connections at DC. The writer shares that she has worked with DC a lot and claims that they are pretty amazing and supportive.
“Honestly, a lot of it is DC itself is kind of the one the one’s kind of overseeing it,” added Hodson. “Obviously, there’s been a change in leadership there. Walter Hamada, really knows what he’s doing. He’s so good at his job. And he has a real love for these characters and for this material, so it’s looking to him more than anything. And obviously, like with a lot of us, we’ve gotten to know each other, especially the writers, we all have friends now, which is lovely. We read each other stuff and help each other. But yeah, mostly it’s going through Walt and DC.”
