The Flash has recently become one of DC’s most popular characters in media, mostly thank to the successful series on The CW.
Soon he’s going to have his shot at making a name for himself on the big screen, though.
We got a brief glimpse at Ezra Miller’s Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but we’ll see him in all his glory come 2018, after he appears in The Justice League Part One in 2017.
His solo film, which reports say will not be an origin story, was rolling along with author and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith attached to direct. But he recently left the project due to creative differences and the film was without a director – until now.
Rick Famuyiwa has become the new go-to guy for the film and this is exciting for several reasons. It means, alongside Ryan Coogler (who will be directing Black Panther), we’re getting two black directors for big superhero blockbusters, and also that we’ll be getting an interesting and individual take.
Famuyiwa is the director behind Dope and HBO’s Confirmation starring Kerry Washington, both projects that were well received.
The Flash is set to arrive on March 16, 2018.
Do you think Famuyiwa is a good choice of director? Comment below!
