Report: The Flash Begins Production In the U.K. In April
After an endless series of directorial shakeups and changes to the script, it looks like cameras are finally set to roll on Warner Bros.’ standalone Flash movie (via SuperHeroHype). A new listing found on Backstage claims that the film will start shooting in April, with Andy Muschietti planted firmly in the director’s chair.
Production on The Flash will take place at Leavesden Studios in the United Kingdom. Currently, that studio is serving as the home of another highly-anticipated DC movie, The Batman. Backstage also notes that The Flash’s casting process is underway with Rich Delia and Kate Ringsell presiding. Delia isn’t a stranger to DC projects, having been the casting director on Shazam!, DC Universe’s Swamp Thing, and The CW’s Stargirl. Ringsell also worked as a casting associate on the original Wonder Woman movie.
So far, The Flash’s cast includes Ezra Miller as the title character, with Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck playing two alternate versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Additionally, Billy Crudup is reportedly set to reprise his Justice League role as Barry Allen’s father, Henry. However, Ray Fisher’s return as Cyborg seems very unlikely. Earlier today, Fisher said that he will not work with DC Films’ Walter Hamada.
The Flash will hit theaters on November 4, 2022.
