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

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

The film will star Ezra Miller, reprising his role as Barry Allen/The Flash from Justice League. As well as directing the Vacation film, the two also have the upcoming Game Night with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams.

Daley and Goldstein already have experience in the comic book genre after writing the script for Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming. While doing so, Barry ends up launching the DC Universe into an alternate reality (Flashpoint). Variety was the first to break the news in an exclusive report that also contained another bit of information arguably just as intruiging as the confirmation of Daley and Goldstein's directorial duties.

The studio had reportedly offered the directing gig to Ben Affleck but he's said to have passed on the job. His screenplay reportedly survived the transition though, with Rick Famuyiwa of Dope taking the director's role, before leaving himself in October of past year. He last portrayed the superhero in "Justice League".

By declining an opportunity to direct the DCEU movie, the actor has fuelled rumours about stepping away from DC films.

Kia Niro EV shoots for 200-plus-mile range
The Kia Niro EV will be available later this year and boasts range comparable to the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3 . Kia has unveiled an electric Niro SUV, and promises it'll have a range of 238 miles when it arrives early in 2019.

And though we've heard rumors that Warner Bros. has soured on his involvement in the DC cinematic universe moving forward, how accurate can those reports be if they approached Affleck to direct the Flashpoint movie? 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.

Rick Famuyiwa had been set as director of the Flash stand-alone before exiting in October 2016 due to creative differences.

Warner Bros.' stand-alone Flash movie became Flashpoint at San Diego Comic-Con in 2017. The announcement of Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein being appointed to helm the film is great news as fans now know that the film will be made.
