Long-Gestating 'The Flash' Movie Is Not Dead Yet


Scribe Dan Mazeau confirms that Warner Bros. Pictures is still 'finalizing their strategy' to develop the film adaptation of the DC Comics character, adding that The Flash is 'very high on the list.'

It's been more than a year since the last time fans heard about "The Flash" movie project. While fanboys have been questioning whether or not the superhero film is still in the works, screenwriter Dan Mazeau has broken the good news that the project is not dead yet. The "Wrath of the Titans" scribe confirmed that Warner Bros. Pictures is still actively developing the big screen take on the DC Comics' character.

"I think Warner Bros. is finalizing their strategy of how they want to roll out their DC superheroes, and obviously they've got Batman in an incredibly great place, and Green Lantern, I think, performed okay," Mazeau told Blastr. "I think they probably would have liked it to have done better, but yeah, there is still a whole lot of excitement for the DC universe, and I know The Flash is very high on the list."

Explaining why it takes so long for "The Flash" to get underway, Mazeau said, "It's like anything, though. It has to come together with the right cast. It has to come together with the right director and sort of the right moment, and so they're trying to push the rock up the hill...hopefully there will be some news soon, but right now I can't really say anything else."

Mazeau has written the draft for the superhero movie along with Geoff Johns, Michael Green, Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti, who was said to be possibly tackling the helming duty. Mazeau said that his version of "The Flash" was going to be Barry Allen. Still, he noted, "For fans of Wally [West], there were some things in that script that would make them happy also."

Based on comic books by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, "The Flash" revolves around a young man who gets struck by lightning-struck chemicals before gaining the powers of super speed and uses it to fight crime. The comic was first published in 1940.
