John Francis Daley And Jonathan Goldstein In Negotiation To Helm 'Flashpoint'

Posted January 19, 2018

The Flash movie, Flashpoint, is in talks with new directors, Vacation's John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

No plot details are known about the Flashpoint movie, but it will be a solo movie starring Ezra Miller as The Flash.

Affleck's standing in the DC Extended Universe remains uncertain, as rumors continue to swirl over whether the actor will reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in future DC Comics films after the disappointing box office returns of Justice League. As Warner Bros. started to look for a replacement, it also chose to take the script into a different direction.

After rumors of Ben Affleck being approached to direct, the Scarlett Speedster's stand alone film finally appears to have it's pieces in place. According to the new report, the standalone movie might be directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The duo actually came together to direct the Vacation remake in 2015, so I'm guessing Flashpoint is going to have a comedic tone to it, but hopefully it gets dark when necessary.

Miller made his first appearance as The Flash in a very brief cameo in 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and he also starred as the character in supervillain film "Suicide Squad" later that year.

The director's chair has remained vacant for some time now, and past year during San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed by Warner Bros. that the Flash film wouldn't just be a Flash film, but a retelling of the iconic Flashpoint story, which messes with alternate universes and the multiverse. An official release date is yet to be set by the studio. While doing so, Barry ends up launching the DC Universe into an alternate reality (Flashpoint).
