IT director Andy Muschietti says his next movie is DCEU’s The Flash

August 30th, 2019 by Marc Comments

After we reported a few days ago that Flash star Ezra Miller was confident the standalone movie is definitely coming (here), it now looks a pretty high profile director is attached.

Now, I’m excited at this idea, but Flash fans will know we’ve been this far before…

Anyway, IT and IT Chapter 2 director Andy Muschietti, currently doing the press tour for the horror sequel was asked if the DC hero was his next project and he replied: “Yup.”

But, not done there, he gave a few hints about how he’d approach the movie, with the question being if he’d use his horror background in the movie, to which he replied: “I don’t think so. What captivated me about the Flash is the human drama in it. The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.”

Fun? Human story? Drama? That sounds like a good start for Barry Allen’s first big screen adventure.

What say you all? Andy Muschietti for The Flash? I think it’s a cracking start… hopefully we can finally see this happen: It’s been a long time coming, after all.

Here’s Muschietti wearing a Flash cap while promoting IT Chapter II. Just because.

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….
