FLASHPOINT Movie Gets a Pair of Comedy Directors

Adjust Comment Print

The film is titled Flashpoint and looks set to have a more comedic tone than some of the other stand-alone DC movies because of the duo's past.

Daley and Goldstein have several writing credits together - including "Horrible Bosses", that sequel, and "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" - and they directed the 2015 "Vacation" movie starring Ed Helms and Christina Applegate. The studio also reportedly wanted Ben Affleck to direct, but he passed on the project.

The DCEU installment is now titled Flashpoint, nearly certainly referencing the 2011 DC Comics event which saw the Flash finding himself in an alternate timeline where the Justice League never existed. Variety was the first to break the news in an exclusive report that also contained another bit of information arguably just as intruiging as the confirmation of Daley and Goldstein's directorial duties.

Warner Bros.' stand-alone Flash movie became Flashpoint at San Diego Comic-Con in 2017.

But then again, it all adds more perspective to the ongoing saga that is the DC Films shared universe, where directors come and go at any time in the production phase. He last portrayed the superhero in "Justice League".

Flashpoint had been on hold since 2016, when director Rick Famuyiwa, best known for the movie Dope, walked away from the project.

The solo Flash movie is based on the Flashpoint comic book series, released in 2011, and written by DC Comics chief creative officer and DC Films co-head Geoff Johns. More than half of the Justice League (Ray Fisher's Cyborg, Affleck's Batman, and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman) is rumored to return, with Affleck possibly making this his Batsuited curtain call.

Flashpoint will see Ezra Miller fill the shoes of Barry Allen, the Flash, as he travels back in time to save his mother from being murdered.
