After already losing multiple directors, it seems that there is more trouble ahead for DC’s upcoming solo outing for The Flash. Variety reports that the project will be undergoing a complete page-one rewrite to be conducted by Joby Harold. Harold's credits include Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and not much else, making this a monumental task for the fairly untested screenwriter.
,At first glance, this could be heartbreaking news for Flash fans. But, taking a step back, this could be the best thing that has happened to the movie. After all, Suicide Squad was reported to be a rushed production, and there were definite times where it felt like the script needed more time to develop before the movie had been made. With director Rick Famuyiwa having left The Flash already and no new director in place, there is no connective tissue holding this movie together. Sometimes, the best thing to do when a project falls apart is to simply start over. This could also allow this movie to move away from the tone of the previous DC movies, which are having a hard time connecting with fans.
Hopefully, this is a sign DC is willing to take its time with The Flash in order to really get it right. Time will only tell, but I would not be surprised if the next bit of news we get about this movie is a change in its current July 27, 2018 release date.
