It has recently come in that The Flash movie delayed. The Flash movie delayed to late 2019. This means that The Flash movie release date is going to be sometime in 2021. At first, The Flash movie was going to be one of the early 2018 DC movies. But thanks to the changes in the writers and directors, DC Movies have been through many iterations. There is a new set of writers and filmmakers now.
Scenario for the Directors of The Flash Movie
Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley boarded the project for the direction of The Flash movie earlier this year. They were the directors of Game Night. It happened when the movie was still said to be an adaptation of The Flashpoint comic book by Geoff John. They were reported to start production in early 2019. This was to meet WB’s 2020 The Flash movie release date. But it was dependent on various factors. Moreover, a 2020 release date was difficult to achieve as the Flashpoint adaptation has yet another snag in development.
Reason for the Delay
Variety has reported that the production for the Flash movie delayed until late 2019. This means that the Flash movie release date will be sometime in 2021. The reason for this delay is due to the working on the script. The studios believe that the script will not be completed according to the last scheduled production date. Hence they decided to delay it.
It is a fact that DC films have been restructured earlier this year. Given this, producers Walter Hamada and Chantal Nong, a new production philosophy has begun adhering. This production delay makes sense and fits within the new way of things at the studios. Due to this same reason, projects like Suicide Squad 2 are under redo. This is to make sure that they have the story down before they start hitting the cameras. Hence, while the Flash Movie delayed is a disappointment, it is likely for the better. It is to avoid future post-production failures like what happened with Suicide Squad and Justice League.
But despite past misfires, Warner Bros and DC don’t have an interest in slowing down the things. While Aquaman is the only release by DC hitting the theatres this year, 2019 is ready for three drops by DC. Those three are Shazam!, Joker and Wonder Woman 1984. Moreover, Birds of Prey is already scheduled to release in early 2020. Similar to the Joker movie, DC can put other movies on production which require a smaller budget and small production time. They can do it until the production for the Flash movie begins.
