Update: Discussing Film reports The Flash movie will start filming on February 5.
Ezra Miller's solo The Flash movie may start filming in February 2019. Miller is part of the old-guard of Warner Bros. and DC's movie universe. He was cast by Zack Snyder and made cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. It wasn't until last year when he got a bigger role in Justice League, where Miller's comedic take on the scarlet speedster won over many. His scene-stealing role came at the perfect time as the studio made his solo movie a big priority for them.
Game Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will direct the movie based on a script from Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword). Miller is set to take on the leading role for the solo adventure, which doesn't appear to be a Flashpoint adaptation anymore. Story and character details could begin to surface soon, as we may be just a couple months away from the start of filming.
PursueNews shared the latest intel on The Flash that comes from new listings by Production Weekly. According to the report, The Flash is scheduled to start filming in February of 2019. Although the film has previously been linked to London as its home for production, it now appears that the movie will be filming in Atlanta.
This isn't the first time The Flash has been linked to an early 2019 start, but this is the firmest schedule that's surfaced so far. As long as nothing else changes, then we could start to get further casting information as 2018 comes to a close. The only cast member confirmed to be in the movie besides Miller is Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. She stayed on the production despite being hired when Rick Famuyiwa was set to direct and filmed scenes for Justice League that did not make the final cut. Billy Crudup is also likely going to be part of the cast, as he has made his debut as Henry Allen already.
With the filming schedule for The Flash becoming more clear, it continues to look likely that the movie will hit a 2020 release, which has previously been teased by the directors. It also further guarantees the film will be part of a very busy production schedule for Warner Bros. and DC. Birds of Prey is also reportedly scheduled to begin filming in early 2019, and Matt Reeves is hopeful his The Batman reboot will film in the spring. With movies like Black Adam and Suicide Squad 2 also linked to possible 2019 shoots, the future of DC on the big screen is bright, and The Flash is one of these several exciting projects that'll be here before we know it.
