MAN: HOMECOMING Writers In Talks to Direct DC's FLASHPOINT

Ezra Miller is reprising his 'Justice League' role as the DC superhero

Actor Ezra Miller, depicted above as the Flash in 2017's Justice League, is expected to reprise his role for Flashpoint, which is projected for a 2020 theatrical release. As well as directing the Vacation film, the two also have the upcoming Game Night with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams.

The outlet reports that before the Homecoming duo boarded the Flash film, Ben Affleck was approached to direct.

The DCEU installment is now titled Flashpoint, nearly certainly referencing the 2011 DC Comics event which saw the Flash finding himself in an alternate timeline where the Justice League never existed.

Dope's Rick Famuyiwa was then recruited and Kiersey Clemons was cast as female lead Iris West, but the director soon left - once again due to creative differences. Could Flashpoint do the same for DC cinematic universe after the stumbles of four out of five divisive movies that failed to meet expectations at the box office?

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are no strangers to the superhero world.

The vehicle was later removed by the Orange County fire officials with the help of Los Angeles County Urban Search & Rescue team. They added that the driver of the auto "admitted to using narcotics, and will be admitted to a local hospital for observation".

Previously, Affleck was set to write, direct and act in the solo Batman movie.

The DC film universe has been in trouble since its tentpole films "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League" received poor reviews.

While the Flash is traditionally a more comedic character, Flashpoint is a pretty heavy, unfunny affair, what with rewriting history by averting his mother's death and all. While there's been no true flop, each film to date has been beset by critical or commercial disappointment, with the exception of last year's Wonder Woman.

The standalone "The Flash" movie, which will be based on the comic book storyline known as "Flashpoint", has found a new pair of directors following a long string of exits from previous people hired to helm the DC/Warner Bros. project.
