LEGO Movie Producers Working on Flash Movie

Category: Flash News — By

Variety reports that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, producers of the LEGO Movie, are developing the story for the Flash movie. As previously announced, the March 2018 film is set in DC’s movie universe rather than their TV universe, and will star Ezra Miller. As ComicsAlliance points out, this suggests that Warner Bros. is looking for a lighter tone for the speedster than they’ve taken with Superman in Man of Steel, which IMO is a good move.

I’ve lost count of the number of creative teams that have been attached to a Flash movie since Warner Bros. first started planning one with David Goyer way back in 2004. But for the first time there’s enough momentum that I see a good chance of this happening (as long as the DC movie universe doesn’t crash and burn first, which is still a possibility).

Flash Panel

This past Sunday, WonderCon hosted a Flash TV show panel in Anaheim, CA. The largest room at the convention center was packed, but not overflowing, as the lights dimmed and they showed a trailer for the upcoming episodes building to the season finale.

It was a different trailer than the one that ran after last week’s episode, and it looks awesome!. (YouTube link via The Beat.)

Cast members Carlos Valdez (Cisco Ramon), Candice Patton (Iris West), and Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow) came out on stage, along with producer Andrew Kreisberg. (Jesse L. Martin was scheduled to be there, but got sick and had to cancel.) Once they were all introduced, someone in the audience shouted out, “Where’s Barry?” “Oh, he’s running around…”

Flash #41

DC’s June solicitations are starting to roll out, including…

THE FLASH #41
Written by ROBERT VENDITTI and VAN JENSEN
Art and cover by BRETT BOOTH and NORM RAPMUND
THE JOKER Variant cover by EDDY BARROWS
On sale JUNE 24 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T

Professor Zoom is back, and he’s not alone! Who’s along for the ride to kill the fastest man alive? Find out here!

Interesting, considering that Reverse-Flash Daniel West is out and about in the relaunched Suicide Squad.

Also, what do you think of the adjustments to the costume?

Update: Artist Brett Booth tweets that this isn’t the issue’s cover, but the costume design drawing.

Also: A scan of some of the interior pencils showing the Flash in action with the new costume.
