It took 6 years to change 5 directors successively! DC’s long-delayed “The Flash” finally ended the shooting?
“The Flash” of Warner Bros. and DC Films has ended its main production work after numerous setbacks and 124 days of shooting.
The main shooting task of “The Flash” is finally completed.
The next main work is some scattered tasks of reshoots, reshoots (unqualified in quality inspection), and post-production.
The main point of this film should be the post-production, after all, super power and multiverse require special effects to achieve.
Although you may not have seen the official finalization news and the finalization photo of the creator, etc.
But Colin Nicolson, one of the film’s mixers, confirmed the news on social media.
He also wrote: “This is the finale of “The Flash”. On the 124th day, we have an excellent sound team, excellent actors and staff. This is very challenging, but very interesting.”
After “The Batman”, “Black Adam” and “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” this year, “The Flash” has also been filmed.
Currently, only one piece of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is still in the actual shooting state.
The production speed of “The Flash” is not fast.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller signed in 2015 to write a story outline, and Seth Grahame-Smith was appointed as the screenwriter and director.
The latter left in 2016 and was replaced by Rick Famuyiwa.
Soon, he also left the project the following year due to creative contradictions.
Afterward, Warner Bros. commissioned Joby Harold to rewrite the script, and in 2018 announced John F. Daley and Jonathan Lewis Goldstein as the new directors.
But the project didn’t last long. Andrés Muschietti was appointed as the new director in August 2020, and the filming started in April 2021.
The production of “The Flash” lasted six years.
However, even with the participation of Andrés Muschietti, “The Flash” also faced many setbacks.
The most recent one occurred in July, when it was suspended due to an accident while shooting stunts with the Batmobile.
In addition to Ezra Miller’s return as Barry Allen, “The Flash” will also feature two Batman Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck.
The film will also introduce Supergirl to the DC Extended Universe, played by Sasha Calle.
There are still rumors that CW/Arrowverse’s “The Flash” Grant Gustin, DCEU’s “Wonder Woman” Gal Gadot, and “Man of Steel”‘s General Kryptonian will appear in the movie.
Considering that Miller also appeared in CW’s “Infinite Earth Crisis” linkage, these rumors are very likely.
What is certain is that Ray Fisher’s Victor Stone/Cyborg will basically not appear in the movie.
He stated that he would not participate in any projects led by Walter Hamada, president of DC Films.
The unfortunate experience of “Cyborg” being excluded is also the reason why Ben Affleck euphemistically stated in an interview a few days ago that he might be “prosecuted.”
“The Flash” will be released on November 4, 2022.
