It’s been a while since we last heard anything about The Flash movie, but Warner Bros. and DC Films have shined the light on this movie by giving an official release date. That’s right, as of right now it’s official that The Flash is set to release on July 2022.
Ezra Miller is set to reprise his role as Barry Allen/The Flash. His version of Barry Allen first appeared in the DCEU within Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. In an interview with Playboy, Miller stated the following:
“Nothing is ever certain in this world, but as certain as things get, we’re making a f***ing crazy-dope Flash movie. It’s one of my great life dreams, and just the fact that we’re on the way – anyone who knows about Barry Allen knows he may arrive late, very late, but once he gets there, it’s all solved. We have trust.”
For a time, the film found it impossible to find and keep a director working on this movie. Directors like Rick Famuyiwa, Jonathan Goldstein, Seth Grahame-Smith and more have all left the project at one point. The Flash was originally set to be released in 2018, but this never came to fruition due to the nature of directors constantly dropping.
However, as of right now, IT director Andy Muschietti has taken on this project. He was hired earlier this year, and nothing seems to point to him leaving the project. Despite this, Miller will also be busy filming the third installment in the Fantastic Beasts series. In fact, Fantastic Beasts 3 is one of the main reasons the project has been delayed. Let’s hope that a set release date means The Flash is finally coming together with a passionate director.
