Did The Flash Movie Just Get Bumped Up A Week?


For fans of Barry Allen, 2018 feels like a long wait for The Flash movie to sprint into our multiplexes. Happily, the wait may have gotten just a tiny bit shorter.

Heroic Hollywood is on the case once again, sniffing out a small change in the release date for The Flash movie. Exhibitor Relations, a movie industry research firm tweeted out that an “untitled DC film” will be in theaters on March 16, 2018. Considering that The Flash was previously linked to March 23 and the chances of two DC films coming out in consecutive weeks is virtually nil, that almost certainly means the DC Extended Universe version of Barry Allen is simply moving up a week.

Of course fans already get to see Grant Gustin play Barry every week on The Flash TV show, but Miller will be playing his own version of the same character for movies. It’s expected, though not yet confirmed, that Miller will make at least a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next month, with some reports stating that it could simply be as a blur moving quickly through one scene.

Even with a possible week’s bump, The Flash is scheduled to fall smack dab in the middle of the DCEU film slate announced so far as the sixth out of 11 announced movies. No writer or director has been announced for the film yet, but perhaps a moving release date heralds some imminent news on that front as well.
