Warner Bros. has dated its DC Comics solo “The Flash” movie for the summer of 2022 and will be released on July 1, the studio announced on Wednesday.
Ezra Miller will reprise his role as the scarlet speedster. Created in 1956, DC Comics’ “The Flash,” whose secret identity is Barry Allen, is a hero with the power of super speed that allows him incredible abilities, including time travel. The character was a part of Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” and debuted in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
“Nothing is ever certain in this world, but as certain as things get, we’re making a f–king crazy-dope ‘Flash’ movie,” Miller said in an interview with Playboy.
Miller called starring in the standalone movie “one of my greatest life dreams.”
“Anyone who knows about Barry Allen knows he may arrive late, very late, but once he gets there, it’s all solved. We have to trust,” Miller said.
“It” director Andy Muschietti is in talks to direct “The Flash,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap. Muschietti’s partner and sister, Barbara Muschietti, will produce along with Michael Disco on the film. “Birds of Prey” writer Christina Hodson is being eyed to write the script.
