First, Ezra Miller confirmed it. And now Andy Muschietti has confirmed it as well. During an interview with the folks at Fandango, the “IT” Director confirmed that he will indeed be directing the First Solo “Flash” film. It stars Ezra Miller who will reprise his character first seen in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He then appeared, albeit briefly, in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. And lastly, the debacle of the now infamous Justice League.
During the interview, Muschietti was asked by Fandango if Flash would be his next project. He replied with an emphatic “Yup,” and a smile on face signaling his excitement on the project.
The Fandango interviewer followed up with a question regarding his ability to incorporate horror elements like the IT movies. Muschietti was quick to respond by saying:
“An element if horror? I don’t think so. 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.”
Muschietti becomes the 4th director attached to the movie since the departure of John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein. Their departure stemmed from them wanting a more comedic tone for the scarlet speedster, which didn’t resonate well with the Ezra Miller. Speaking of Miller, a week before this interview, he confirmed that there is a Flash movie in the works during an interview with “W Korea”. The film has a potential start date for production next year, with a 2021 release. Stay connected with us for any further developments.
