The DCEU has had some troubles in recent months (or years, depending on how you felt about Man of Steel). With a mixed reaction to Man of Steel and largely negative reviews concerning Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable to be worried. However some of the coming movies still intrigue me, and not just because Zack Snyder isn’t working on most of them. One of these movies is the DCEU version of The Flash.
Recently The Flash movie has been in the news. Until recently writer Seth Grahame-Smith was set to direct The Flash movie. Then he left for reasons unknown, but it seems it’s for the best. That would have been the first movie Grahame-Smith directed, and it’s not like we need any newbs in the DCEU. Best not to risk another disappointment.
And it seems it all worked out! I mean, we’ll have to wait a bit to get a real answer but this guy seems promising. Rick Famuyiwa has been attached to direct the Scarlet Speedster’s solo movie. Famuyiwa may be be best known for his 2015 movie Dope, which can likely be a look into how he will do Barry in the movie. According to Deadline, “the feeling internally was that Famuyiwa provided a vision that would resonate with young viewers and that vision was very compatible with the script that the studio is moving toward the start gate with.” I have yet to see Dope or any of his other projects, but I have hope for this guy. Plus I have heard a bunch of good stuff about Dope.
So what do you think? Is this guy perfect for the job or do you think Zack Synder should be doing this one (crowd laughs)? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on The Flash movie and other things in the world of movie news.
The Flash solo movie comes to theaters March 16th, 2018.
