To say WB’s The Flash has had trouble gaining momentum would be an understatement. Since the film’s official announcement all the way back in 2014, it’s gone through a slew of both writers and directors over creative difference, and now it appears as if the film is gearing up to lose its main star as well.
According to multiple MediaByte sources, Ezra Miller is set to exit the DCEU as The Flash when his contract with Warner Bros expires this May. Last week it was revealed Miller wasn’t pleased with directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein taking the film in a more light-hearted direction, and solicited the help of acclaimed comics writer Grant Morrison to help him write a darker script for the Scarlet Speedster’s solo film. It’s reported that WB is “incredibly impressed” with the script written by Daley and Goldstein, and will likely use it moving forward.
The Flash was rumored to begin production this November, but with Miller stepping away due to creative differences, this will put yet another halt on a film fans have been aching to see for years.
