The Flash (TBA)

Director: David Dobkin

U.S. Opening Date: TBA


While touring the crime scene lab of his uncle, Barry Allen, teenager Wally West is doused in chemicals after a lightning bolt strikes them, which enables him to run faster than any other human being on earth. Becoming the Flash, Wally sets out to protect the people of his city from the villainous threats that arise.

With the Flash a major part of George Miller's Justice League movie, The Flash will feature Wally West and be set in the same universe as Justice League as a direct spin-off.

Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, The Flash has the ability to run and move extremely fast, use superhuman reflexes and violate certain laws of physics, like time travel.

Shawn Levy and David Goyer were previously attached to direct.


Wasn't there a Flash TV series that was a ratings flop back in the 1990s? Not ones to be deterred, Hollywood is nonetheless forging ahead with this new adaptation. No news as to casting yet, but with advances in CGI bringing The Flash to the big screen seems like a no-brainer. Especially since men in spandex movies rule at the box office . . .
