After it was thought to arrive next year, "The Flash" movie may not hit theaters in 2018 as it is said that DC has pushed back its showing date to a much later time.
While DC fans get to see a live-action version of Barry Allen/The Flash on a weekly basis — thanks to Grant Gustin's "The Flash" TV series on The CW — there is no denying that many fans are still looking forward to the solo live-action movie of the character, which will be top-billed by Ezra Miller.
However, if the latest reports are to be believed, it seems that fans looking forward to "The Flash" movie will need to extend their patience even further as, allegedly, DC and Warner Bros. have pushed its release to 2020.
While it remains unclear if it will really be the case, it is suspected that the reason for the delay of the arrival of "The Flash" is due to the several pre-production glitches it has encountered. To recall, the movie lost two of its would-be directors, Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, last year after citing "creative differences" with DC and Warner Bros. as the reason.
As if losing one director after another were not enough reason to delay the project, it was also reported in January that the script of the movie will undergo a page 1 rewrite in the hands of Joby Harold, who also wrote the script for the upcoming movie "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword."
Because of these production problems, it is but understandable if "The Flash" will, indeed, be delayed and released in the same year with two other planned DC movies, "Green Lantern Corps" and "Cyborg."
Meanwhile, as "The Flash" movie is rumored to be delayed, the already announced "Gotham City Sirens" is said to arrive earlier than expected as, allegedly, DC and Warner Bros. will be releasing the Margot Robbie-starrer in February 2019.
Rumors also claim that "Man of Steel 2" will arrive in November 2019 and will feature Brainiac as the main villain to Henry Cavill's Superman character.
It is also alleged that the upcoming "Wonder Woman" movie is already being eyed to have a sequel as it is said that Warner Bros. is pleased with how the movie is made.
