'The Flash' Movie: All the Essentials in One Place
Ezra Miller will be speeding on to the big screen as The Flash in his own solo movie — but a lot of questions remain about how it will all shape up.
After making cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, Miller's Barry Allen/The Flash will next be seen on the big screen in 2017's Justice League — followed by his own solo adventure. Here's the most up-to-date information on the cast, plot and tone of the DC film, which is currently set for a March 16, 2018 release.
WHO IS IN THE CAST?
When he suits up for his solo movie, Miller will see him joined by Kiersey Clemons, who will play the female lead West, as well as Billy Crudup. No villain has been revealed.
That's the $1 million question. So far, two directors have come and gone, with the movie losing Seth Grahame-Smith in April and his replacement, Rick Famuyiwa, departing the project in October over creative differences. It's March 2017 start date may be pushed back, and that could see the March 16, 2018 release date pushed as well.
Famuyiwa was key in casting Clemons, who starred in his film Dope. The actress told Heat Vision after his departure that his exit was "upsetting."
"Ezra and I are going to do what we promised to do from the beginning," Clemons said. "No matter who the director is, I am going to do what I think Iris should be."
WHAT'S THE PLOT?
No plot synopsis has been released, but we can except a lighter tone given the character's humorous tendencies. Warner Bros. has positioned him as someone who can inject a dose of humor into the grim DC Extended Universe movies — as his back and forth with Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) in the Justice League trailer demonstrates.
Stay tuned for more from The Flash, as this post will be updated as we learn more.
