The DC Extended Universe is certainly one that causes a huge divide within the members of the movie-loving community that go to watch the various instalments. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were two of the most-talked about releases of 2016, with critics raking the pair over the coals, but long time DC fans thankful for the loyal and canon instances each of the movies included.

Despite that, the DCEU continues to build upon itself, with Warner Bros. planning to release a huge selection of new films in the future. One of those is The Flash – completely separate from the television series of the same name – which has a planned release for 2018. Pre-production however threatens that, failing to get off the ground for various reasons. Now though a new development has been made.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. has hired Joby Harold to rewrite the screenplay which was previously written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, despite the new writer’s credits not being nearly as impressive as those of the previous script workers.

The article from Variety continues to divulge hints that the script was holding back the process of direction on the movie, which means Warner Bros. may be forced to pull back the release date for The Flash, as lead star Ezra Miller will be filming Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them 2.

Though we may not see The Flash movie for some time based on this new information, we will see the character take one of the lead ensemble roles in this year’s big superhero release, Justice League. Bringing together Flash with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Aquaman, the six will be tasked with protecting the Earth from one of the biggest threats humanity has ever faced.

Justice League is released on November 17. The Flash is slated for release in 2018.
