    I like him, but not as Barry. If anything, he could play Klarion the Witch Boy. His appearance in the first Fantastic Beasts movie was spot on.

    THR: 'Flash' Shocker: 'It' Director Andy Muschietti in Talks to Tackle DC Movie
    Warner Bros.’ Flash movie project has been jolted by lighting.

    Andy Muschietti, the filmmaker behind the hit Stephen King adaptation It and the upcoming It: Chapter Two, is in talks to direct the action-adventure project based on the DC Comics superhero. His partner and sister, Barbara Muschietti, will produce, joining Michael Disco on the project.

    John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who wrote drafts of the script and were slated to helm the project, have moved on. However, Ezra Miller, the actor who has long been attached to star as the fleet-footed hero, remains on board to star.

    But in a further development, the studio won’t be moving forward with the script Miller co-wrote with comics author Grant Morrison. Instead, Warners will hire Christina Hodson, the scribe behind Bumblebee and the studio's upcoming DC movie, the Margot Robbie-fronted Birds of Prey, to tackle the script. The goal is to be in prep by January.

    Dealmaking has not yet begun, stress insiders. Official offers are expected to go out shortly.

    Goldstein and Daley’s exit is described as voluntarily, according to multiple sources. The pair have been with the project since January 2018, writing the script and developing it to direct. At one point, the project seemed like it was heading toward a start date in late 2019. But months of tensions over creative differences bogged down the project, with the duo deciding it was time to move on and find new opportunities.

    The tensions surfaced around what kind of take was the best fit for a Flash movie. Miller, who has played the character since 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, favored a darker approach, while Goldstein and Daley, the pair who wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming and were behind the comedy hit Game Night, wanted the opposite.

    The two sides have been working on compromises since last year, but Miller then made the unusual move to take it upon himself to pen his own script, enlisting the aid of comics superstar Morrison. That script was submitted to the studio in March. By May, the studio rejected his approach, but concluded that Miller should still remain the Scarlet Speedster.

    Muschietti hails from the horror world and made his feature debut with Mama, the 2013 thriller that starred Jessica Chastain. His adaptation of It, released in 2017, was a critical and commercial hit, making over $700 million worldwide. Warners is high on the sequel, with the title being the only movie the studio will be showcasing at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con. With Muschietti being chosen for Flash, the studio is clearly pleased with the filmmaker, too.

    If a deal is made, Muschietti will be the latest horror filmmaker to cross over to directing a DC movie after going through the trenches of sister division New Line. James Wan directed Aquaman, a billion dollar hit, while David Sandberg, who directed Annabelle: Creation and Lights Out, made the most recent DC hit, Shazam! Jaume Collet-Serra, who got his start with movies such as House of Wax and Orphan, is attached to helm Black Adam.

    So the one time a show actually GETS a blonde hair blue eyed Male actor, it's for a part that has a black afro and purple eyes. But any part where the character actually HAS blonde hair and blue eyes, DC screws it up.

    Netflix's Daredevil raised the bar for what a comic book tv show can be. I have no interest in lowering the bar. No way I will resubscribe.
    you could always look at it for free (ILLEGALLY )

    Not only that, but they'll actually hype the same event two weeks in a row by interviewing the writer the first week and the artist the second.

    I'm firmly in the camp of IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME. There's nothing wrong with building up a character as a supporting role before branching off. It doesn't have to be as blatant as Silk or as long as Steel. It just has to be good. Damian Wayne is everywhere and people hated him in his initial issues.

    You just have to make good content and people will support it. Or just put top selling talent on it, give it a marketing push beyond a once page blurb and two interviews online.
    I think the only thing Sideways was missing was more involvement from Morrison, who was originally supposed to do more with the character before all of those New Age of Heroes books started getting cancelled. It was the one title Didio had his name on that I actually enjoyed. I'm hoping that character comes back at some point down the line, he'd be a great addition to Young Justice.

    DC needs a different marketing strategy to sell newer titles beyond a few issues. Rather than post the same thing in the back of every comic promoting the next event, Superman or Batman title, or up and coming DC creators... they should have two or three different ads, articles, or features. Say they're still sticking with 52 titles a month... roughly 17 books for every different feature. For example one could be an article about the next big crossover with a creator Q&A. Another could promote something like Wonder Comics with little bits about each new title. Last but not least you could have a sneak preview for a new upcoming title.

    They just don't need to waste the paper on the same ad or preview in every damn comic they publish for that month.

    If money is the main issue as well as the location, if the show does well enough I don't see why Wan couldn't find a new producer to work with and actually try filming in Louisiana? Are they still doing tax breaks like a decade or so back when they filmed part of the GL movie there?

    As good as this series looks so far, they'd be stupid not to continue with it.

    ‘SWAMP THING’: INSIDE THE DOWNFALL OF DC’S MURKY MONSTER
    Sources also stress that the new leadership at WarnerMedia are very keen on doing more shows in the formulaic style of The CW’s ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash,’ and less shows like ‘Doom Patrol’ and ‘Swamp Thing.’

    Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Black Adam’ Finds Its Director In Jaume Collet-Serra

    ‘Swamp Thing’ Cancellation Coverage Muddied By Tall Tales Of Tax Snafus
    Guy Gasser, director of the North Carolina Film Office, said the report’s description of a tax-transaction trapdoor opening up under the fledgling series doesn’t match the facts. The numbers were way off, too, by citing a tax credit sum ($40 million) that not only exceeds the maximum payment per season for any production (which is $12 million), but it also exceeds the NC Film Office’s entire annual budget ($31 million).
    Warner Bros. Bosses Toby Emmerich & Peter Roth On Studio Post Kevin Tsujihara In Streaming Era, Disney/Fox & Potential ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Move – Produced By
    In regards to reviving DC on the film side in the wake of Batman vs. Superman and Justice League, Emmerich said that the trick is putting the IP in the hands of filmmakers’ visions, which is the overall creed of Warner Bros. They’re a filmmaker-driven studio.

    “Great directors are the lifeblood of a studio,” said Emmerich. “But they need great producers” he added, to great cheers.

    He hinted that Warner Bros. would return with its DC feature slate at San Diego Comic-Con 2020 (they’re sitting out and sending New Line’s It: Chapter 2 instead). Essentially, with three DC pics on the horizon — Todd Phillips’ R-rated Joker during the first weekend of October, Birds of Prey on Feb. 7, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, they’re not ready to pop materials just yet on those movies.
