Screenwriter Says The Flash Movie is Still Moving Forward!
Yesterday a report hit the web with quotes from The Dark Knight producer Charles Roven who had said that his rights to an adaptation of The Flash had been reeled in by the newly created DC Entertainment. They are pulling every comic book adaptation back in that isn't ready to go so that they can control the franchises a lot more closely. Roven had said that his version of The Flash really wasn't ready, so most fans thought this meant a Flash movie was dead again or at least not happening for a while. However, screenwriter Dan Mazeau contacted IGN yesterday and gave them a very positive update on the current status of The Flash.
"Just to chime in on your latest article: The Flash has not been hobbled. Everything is moving forward as planned," Mazeau explained. "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."
Oooh I like the sound of that. That Geoff Johns he's talking about is the same Geoff Johns who was also hired by Warner Brothers in July to act as a consultant and writer for DC Comics' superhero projects that are in the works. It's good to know that The Flash is in the right hands, both with a good screenwriter and a good producer/consultant. Ever since that fake trailer hit YouTube last summer, I've been looking forward to one day actually seeing a Flash movie get made. And if DC can start tying their characters together with the hopes of one day making a crossover movie, than I'm definitely excited to see what they've come up with.
