Poor Flash – no one wants to direct his first solo movie. DC’s The Flash movie has now lost a total of three directors due to creative differences and now it’s possible that the film may lose it’s female lead with Kiersey Clemons as Iris West.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were originally being considered to direct the Scarlet Speedster’s solo adventure before they snagged the Han Solo movie.
Next, the movie was set to be directed by Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author Seth Grahame-Smith, who also made an exit.
Most recently, Rick Famuyiwa parted ways with the studio over “creative differences” right before they were about to start pre-production, leaving The Flash (Ezra Miller) scared, alone, and shivering in the corner with no director.
In the most recent episode of Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman, Smith suggested that Tim Miller, director of FOX’s Deadpool should hop onto The Flash movie, even telling him to call up Warner Bros.
Meanwhile we’re over here like…why doesn’t Kevin Smith throw his name in the hat? He’s already killing it with The CW’s Supergirl and The Flash!
Either way, The Flash movie is in some serious trouble. We’d love to be a fly on that wall right now.
We’re calling you out Kevin!
