Flash delay, Affleck being recast and Cavill set for Superman shake-up? Just another day on the DC/Warner circus

October 16th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Prepare for the non DC fans screaming  about how Warners/DC have no idea what they are doing!!!!

Why?

Well…

It seems that Warners are pushing back the release date of the Flash movie has been pushed back and it’s all thanks to Hogwarts according to Variety.

“The film never received a formal greenlight nor did it have a set release date, but it had been expected to begin shooting in March. However, a script is still being tweaked and the studio thinks that it won’t have enough time to get the script in shape in order for the film to make its original start date.

“That’s a problem, because Ezra Miller, the live-wire performer tasked with playing the Flash, also has a key supporting role in “Fantastic Beasts,” the “Harry Potter” spin-off series. The third film in the franchise begins shooting in July, which would cause scheduling headaches. The standalone Flash film is now expected to commence production in late 2019. That likely means the superhero adventure won’t debut in theaters until some time in 2021.”

Confusingly, the report is also saying that Batman and Superman are due for major sake-ups.

Following the box office disappointment of “Justice League,” Warner Bros. has been reevaluating its approach to making movies based on DC Comics characters. The studio is not moving forward with Batman and Superman movies featuring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively. It is expected to recast the Dark Knight with a different actor. 

We don’t know what this means since Matt Reeves’s The Batman is close to beginning production so will that happen now?

Again, what we’re reading here is that Affleck is due to be recast and Cavill’s future as Superman is going to be cameos and appearances in other characters’ movies.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
