The Flash Pauses Filming After Crewmember Suffers an Injury On Set
Warner Bros.’ long-gestating The Flash standalone feature recently moved production over to Scotland. And for the last few days, the streets of Glasgow have been standing in for Gotham City, with several passersby capturing photos of Ben Affleck’s Batman (or one of his stunt doubles) riding around on his spiffy new Batcycle. Unfortunately, there’s just been an accident on the set.
According to GlasgowLive, the filmmakers were shooting a scene on Renfield Street when a cameraman riding his own motorbike crashed into the Batcycle from behind. Witnesses say the camera operator “went under” the Batcycle following the collision. Crew members subsequently called an ambulance and he was immediately taken to the hospital. There haven’t been any updates about the cameraman’s condition since then. However, filming has been temporarily halted as a result of this latest mishap.
After a series of delays, The Flash finally began production in the U.K. back in April. Andy Muschietti (It) is directing the movie from a screenplay by Birds of Prey and Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson. Ezra Miller is reprising his role as Barry Allen from prior DCEU entries. Additionally, the film will present its own version of the iconic Flashpoint storyline, with Barry visiting alternate realities. Aside from Affleck, The Flash will also feature the long-awaited return of Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne from Tim Burton’s Batman films. Sasha Calle is making her big-screen debut as Supergirl as well.
The Flash will hit theaters on November 4, 2022.
