With the grand success of Wonder Woman, as a solo film, DC Comics is turning its attention to the rest of the Justice League for origin stories.
An Aquaman solo film, starring Jason Mamoa and Amber Heard, is set to release in later this year, which makes a Flash solo film the next project for the DC Extended Universe, or DCEU. The film will have Ezra Miller reprising his role as Barry Allen/The Flash.
Reports have confirmed that Warner Brothers has recruited director/screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to direct the film, who Marvel fans may know as the screenwriters for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Although there is no set release date for the Flash film, we can assume it will come out after next spring. DC will release the Aquaman film on December 18, 2018, and Shazam, starring Zachary Levi, in April 2019.
This is the biggest directing gig that Goldstein and Daley have taken on, to date. Their big screen directorial debut was the 2015 comedy, Vacation.
When it comes to writing credits, the duo has much experience in comedy, having written the screenplays for Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2. Spider-Man: Homecoming had quite the comedic touch and so did the Flash in the Justice League film. Perhaps guys with a background in comedy will be a good directorial fit.
Catch Ezra Miller as Barry Allen in Justice League, out on Blu-Ray, Digital Download, and DVD on February 13th.
