Flashpoint To Be Directed By John Daley and Jonathan Goldstein

No plot details are known about the Flashpoint movie, but it will be a solo movie starring Ezra Miller as The Flash.

Daley and Goldstein have also worked on comedies previously, including Horrible Bosses, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Vacation, which starred Ed Helms, Christina Applegate and Chris Hemsworth, and marked the duo's directorial debut. The jump to Spider-Man: Homecoming a year ago was surprising but it ended up earning more than $880 million worldwide. The studio also reportedly wanted Ben Affleck to direct, but he passed on the project.

The comic book series Flashpoint debuted in May 2011 and changed basically everything we knew about the DC Universe to the point that Flashpoint led to DC Comics' relaunch, which was dubbed the New 52.

Variety's director negotiation news is unconfirmed, since Warner Bros. declined to comment. Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa was the next filmmaker appointed to direct the standalone, though sadly, the same sequence of events happened: Famuyiwa too stepped down in light of irreconcilable creative differences with those working on the film. This will be the third time Warner Bros. has gone back to the drawing board to find a director for Flashpoint. This to the point where they have rebooted the script and the film is now Flashpoint, which potentially points to some sort of soft reboot of the DC film universe.


The director's chair has remained vacant for some time now, and a year ago during San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed by Warner Bros. that the Flash film wouldn't just be a Flash film, but a retelling of the iconic Flashpoint story, which messes with alternate universes and the multiverse.

Do you think that Daley and Goldstein are a good fit as directors for Flashpoint?

What's much less of a mystery is what's going on with Flashpoint.

Flashpoint is scheduled for release in 2020.
