On the same day that Joss Whedon announced he is no longer involved with the Wonder Woman movie at Warner Bros., David Goyer has revealed at his Blog that he is not writing and directing The Flash at the studio anymore either:
Well, I’ve been waiting a few months to relate this news — but I am sad to say that my version of The Flash is dead at WB. The God’s honest truth is that WB and myself simply couldn’t agree on what would make for a cool Flash film. I’m quite proud of the screenplay I turned it. I threw my heart into it and I genuinely think it would’ve been the basis of a ground-breaking film. But as of now, the studio is heading off in a completely different direction. I expect you’ll hear of some new developments on that front shortly.
But in happier news, I’ll soon be able to report on what I’ve been doing INSTEAD of The Flash. Stay tuned.
David Goyer had wanted his Blade: Trinity star Ryan Reynolds to star in the title role.
