DC has extremely ambitious plans to create a comic book movie universe to rival Marvel’s, with the seeds being sown with next year’s Batman v Superman. That will lead into all sorts of film running up to a full-on Justice League film and beyond.
One of those movies may have find its director, as THR reports that Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter writer Seth Grahame-Smith is in talks to helm The Flash.
Ezra Miller is set to play the character on the big screen (Grant Gustin will continue to play the superhero on the small screen), which will be introduced in next year’s Barman V Superman, will them be part of the two-part Justice League movie in 2017 and 2019, while his standalone film will come in the middle, in 2018.
It would be Graham-Smith’s first movie as a director, so it’s a big film to make your debut with, although he has extensive credits as both a writer and producer. He’s also currently attached to script project such as The Lego Batman Movie, a Gremlins reboot and new Looney Tunes film (all for Warner Bros.).
