It looks like DC Comics fans might have to wait a bit longer to see Ezra Miller’s The Flash speed into theaters again.
According to a new report from Variety, insiders are saying that the start of filming for the upcoming Flash solo film has been pushed back, due to more work being done on the film’s script. While previous reports had suggested that the project would begin filming in March of 2019, that now has been postponed to sometime in late 2019, with the goal of hitting a 2021 release date.
The pushed production date stems from Ezra Miller, who currently holds the role of The Flash but also plays a vital role in Warner Bros. other massive franchise, Fantastic Beasts. The third installment in the franchise is reportedly set to begin filming in July of 2019, so pushing Flash back to a later date will cause less scheduling conflicts.
The Flash film, which still is not titled, has gone through quite an array of evolutions since the DC Extended Universe’s beginning. Both Rick Famuyiwa and Seth Grahame-Smith were attached to the project at different points in time, but departed due to creative differences.
A new draft of the film began to be crafted in early 2017, with the project later adopting, and then dropping, the title of Flashpoint. In March of this year, Game Night and Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein signed on to helm the project, and are still attached at this point and time.
As of now, Ezra Miller is set to star as Barry Allen/The Flash, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West and Billy Curdup as Henry Allen.
