Yesterday, IGN ran a story about an interview with Charles Roven, a producer on The Dark Knight who was removed from working on the live-action film adaptation of The Flash.
It seemed from the report that the future of speedy DC Comics superhero was a little uncertain. Now comes a follow-up story featuring clarification from Dan Mazeau, who's writing the screenplay for The Flash, where he addresses the misconceptions that arose from the title of IGN's posting.
For fans of The Flash, the news is good.
In his message to IGN Movies, Dan Mazeau wrote the following:
"Just to chime in on your latest article: The Flash has not been hobbled. Everything is moving forward as planned... I'm still writing the script. Geoff Johns is still consulting. Flash fans have no cause for concern, and -- IMO -- lots to be excited about."
That's more like it! I think this is a good thing for DC Entertainment to start showcasing some of their vast lineup of characters, hopefully spawning more long-lasting franchises other than their usual stars, Superman and Batman.
The original report, or at least its title, hinted at a delay or development issues. More accurately, Warner Brothers simply sought out more control in moving development in-house and the project is still moving forward according to play.
When Screen Rant learns more about The Flash, we'll let you know.
