The Flash solo movie was originally slated to release in March 2018, but it was removed from the schedule following Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa's separate departures as directors in 2016. Directing duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Game Night, Spider-Man: Homecoming) later signed on to helm the film based on a script from Joby Harold (King Arthur). Due to various delays, the Flash movie is not expected to begin filming until late 2019 at the very earliest, and will not be released until at least 2021. Barry Allen actor Ezra Miller reassured fans that the movie is definitely still coming, saying, "Nothing is ever certain in this world, but as certain as things get, we’re making a f****** crazy-dope Flash movie."
Green Lantern Corps
Warner Bros. originally attempted to launch a cinematic universe with Martin Campbell's Green Lantern in 2011, starring Ryan Reynolds. The film was a critical and commercial failure, which is why DC is looking to reboot the film (and team) within the DCEU with Green Lantern Corps. Geoff Johns, who wrote a nine-year run of Green Lantern comics, will write and produce the movie. Mission: Impossible - Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie was rumored to be Warner Bros.' favorite choice to direct, and McQuarrie has said he is open to coming onboard for the right story, but no one's officially attached to direct right now. While the film was originally given a July 2020 release date, it's no longer slated to release on that date.
Justice League Dark
One of the strangest (read: unknown to the general public) properties that Warner Bros. is trying to get off the ground is Justice League Dark, based on the comic book team of the same name that protects the world from magical and supernatural forces. Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman were both previously attached to direct the film, which was once titled Dark Universe. Justice League Dark may not be getting the most attention at the moment, but it's something that WB is actively trying to get made.
A Batgirl movie wasn't on Warner Bros.' DCEU slate until former Avengers director Joss Whedon talked to the studio about wanting to make that film. Whedon reportedly wanted to adapt The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!, but he simply couldn't make it work, so he exited the project as both writer and director in February 2018 - almost one year after signing on for the film. Warner Bros. is looking for a female director to replace Whedon. Christina Hodson, the screenwriter behind Birds of Prey, is also penning the script for Batgirl.
