MTV learned on Saturday at the junket for director David Dobkin’s Fred Claus that Warner Bros. has signed the helmer for The Flash. Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) and David Goyer (“Blade” films) were previously attached to direct.
Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) says his adaptation won’t be the character’s first appearance in theaters, with the Flash a major part of George Miller’s Justice League movie. Dobkin confirmed that his movie will be set in the same universe as Justice League as a direct spin-off.
He added that the Flash they will use is “Wally West.”
Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, The Flash has the ability to run and move extremely fast, use superhuman reflexes and violate certain laws of physics, like time travel.
