Phil Lord & Chris Miller developing The Flash for Warner Bros.

04.10.2015

The Flash Phil Lord Chris Miller Ezra Miller

Deadline is reporting that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently working on a treatment for Warner Bros. and DC's THE FLASH. The duo aren't attached to write or direct the comic book movie as THE LEGO MOVIE and JUMP STREET directors haven't decided on their next big screen project yet, but I doubt Warner Bros. would say no if they expressed interest in helming the film.

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER's Ezra Miller is set to play the Scarlet Speedster, although it's not clear if his Flash will be Barry Allen or Wally West. Miller's casting seems to be a bit of a sore spot for some fans of the character (and many would rather see Grant Gustin reprise his role from the CW series), but I think he will do just fine as the fastest man alive.

It was recently rumored that JOHN WICK's Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are being eyed to direct a DC movie, and while I think they would do a fantastic job with a solo Batman flick, perhaps Warner Bros. and DC want them for THE FLASH. Who do you want to direct Ezra Miller in THE FLASH?

THE FLASH will speed into theaters on March 23, 2018.

Good call

These guys have nailed every other project they've been associated with, so I'm sure they'll rock THE FLASH as well.

This is pretty awesome news. Glad to see DC getting some quality talent when it comes to their solo films that aren't Batman or Superman.

I'd rather the TV universe and movie universe were one in the same ala Marvel. Now it is true it could hamstring storytelling or require a lot more work in the coordination department, but it can work well if done right. I think the vast majority of people that see comic book movies, aren't comic fans. I also think most people have heard of the Flash TV series. I honestly believe not having them linked, and all of a sudden a different dude playing the Flash in the movie will actually confuse

This is especially true is Miller plays Barry Allen. But no matter my ass will not be in the seat for this because fuck that, well whatever it is, Ezra Miller.

No dude, this isn't going to confuse anyone. Marvel's shows were a spinoff from the movies, not the other way around (of starting with TV and later pulling a character into the movie). I'm guessing there's a lot of people like me, who like the superhero movies but don't watch shows like the flash. Out of all the people who saw man of steel, how many do you think actually watch flash on a weekly basis? 10%, maybe? I'm fine with these being separate, and I think the general audience will be as

This is not rocket science dude . You really think people are that dumb that they can't tell the difference the worlds are not connected ?

Talk about missing the point! Why are you people such DC apologists? If they had any sense they would intertwine the worlds of TV and cinema, but that would take a heck of a lot of planning and time, and time gets in the way of $! Plus if you are devoted to the TV show, then go to see the movie, yes you might be confused and you also might dislike the films even more because of the obvious corner cutting DC has done by not connecting them. Their universe is so much deeper and richer than

Their universe is so much deeper and richer than marvels and yet they have sold it out for the likes of Michael bay...errr Zack Snyder! They have hacked up the universe and destroyed with only money in mind. And I can guarantee that in 10 yrs all you little apologists will eat your words, starting with the hilariously ignorant love for that POS MOS

RobKong, my thoughts on the matter are this. Film is where you do big, strong adaptations of the work that are live action realizations of the source material. TV is where you do new, interesting takes on the source material to work with the expanded format. There is no need for EVERYTHING to be linked. I mean, jesus. There's just not.

And Wopo, Superman Returns came out during Smallville's run, and for all the reasons that movie bombed, people being confused about the "Two Different

And Wopo, Superman Returns came out during Smallville's run, and for all the reasons that movie bombed, people being confused about the "Two Different Supermen" wasn't one of them. People aren't that stupid... and the ones that are that dumb are generally the reason movies and tv get dumbed down into mind numbing schlock.

Acalebw I'm well aware of the difference between film and TV, but thank you for the...condescending explanation? My point is this, DC comics are ripe for TV storytelling, the whole universe is. If they had the guts and patience to let the TV storylines play out, then brought them together for films at various points, they could actually do something original with the universe. Instead they cut corners and introduce this plastic coca-Cola bs that amounts to nothing more than a disposable,

Instead they cut corners and introduce this plastic coca-Cola bs that amounts to nothing more than a disposable, soulless, cash cow. As a result I promise you some people will see the movie after watching the show, or visa versa, and think "wait is this not....no this...wait...oh ok it has nothing to do with the other one I have already invested hours in." If you can't see that, you are just kidding yourself

It will suck.....

As long as Orlando Bloom's little sister is still playing The Flash. It's okay, I'm more than happy with the TV show.

Can you tell me the lotto numbers while you're at it?. I don't get the love for Gustin. He seems more Peter Parker than Barry Allen. The TV show is fun, but the writing is awful, not to mention the idiotic romance they shove down our throats. I don't see Ezra as Flash, but he is a proven talent, while Gustin is not.

Sorry, zzzaaac, I agree with you that Gustin doesn't need to do the movie. However, boy is a proven talent. He can sing, dance and act. And he does all three well. So, yeah, he's got talent.

I"m actually cool with DC's Television and Cinematic Universes being separate entities. I enjoyed Smallville, but I never wanted it to bleed into my Superman movies and I feel the same way about Arrow and the Flash. I feel like you would be painting yourself into corner doing it the other way- especially with a show like the Flash which has plot points mapped out for season long arcs. Loved The Lego Movie, so I'm pretty psyched about Lord and Miller developing this property.
