Though The Flash is racing around on The CW every Tuesday night, Warner Bros. continues to develop a feature film version of the character to tie into their larger DC Cinematic Universe and they’ve just taken a big step forward. Deadline reports that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in the process of writing a treatment for the scarlet speedster’s big screen adaptation. It’s unclear if the pair will direct the feature, though it remains a possibility.
Last year, it was revealed that We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller had been cast in the role of The Flash for the upcoming Justice League Part One, and potentially next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though which version of the character it will be has yet to be confirmed. The Flash is currently set for release March 23, 2018, just six weeks ahead of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 on May 4, 2018.
Grant Gustin currently plays The Flash in the hit CW series, but the character has previously been played by the likes of John Wesley Shipp in the 1990 series and Kyle Gallner in “Smallville.” Adam Brody was previously cast in the role for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller’s defunct Justice League film.
