THE FLASH reportedly delayed pre-production during Hollywood shutdown

The Flash - Flashpoint

You could be forgiven for thinking that Warner Bros. long gestating The Flash movie has a bad luck cloud hanging over its head. The film has struggled to find the right director as it shakes off the past of DC Films and instead looks to its future.

With IT and IT: Chapter 2 director Andy Muschetti now leading the charge, it feels like The Flash is finally beginning to get back on track. It has a new release date and filming is planned to take place later in 2020/2021 once star Ezra Miller has completed his work on the third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

In a new interview with ScreenRant, stunt coordinator Eunice Huthart has discussed that her next project is indeed The Flash but that pre-production has been halted due to the Coronavirus crisis.

The project I was due to start is The Flash. I was supposed to start at about the end of April, beginning of May,” Huthart said, “I’m not sure what’s happening now with that.”

As with plenty of Hollywood productions, The Flash will be on hold now until social distancing restrictions are lifted. We’ll keep you updated as the story develops.

The Flash is currently dated to hit cinemas on July 1, 2022.
