Barbara Muschietti has officially confirmed that the long-in-development film adaptation of The Flash has begun shooting.
After years of languishing in development hell due to a series of changes and departures, The Flash, starring Ezra Miller has finally reached a huge milestone: It has begun filming.
This was confirmed by producer Barbara Muschietti, who posted a picture of brother – and director of the film – Andy Muschietti on Instagram – which showed a wide shot now of the director standing in front of a massive warehouse (presumably one of the sets of the DCEU film), adding that “the fun is on the inside”.

A major step forward for The Flash
Before the Muschiettis and writer Christina Hodson signed on to The Flash, the film underwent a number of iterations, with many writers, producers and filmmakers stepping up to take over the reins. One of the most well-known departures was that of duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein – both of whom left due to creative differences.
This then pushed Miller to join forces with renowned comic book writer Grant Morrison to co-write another draft of the film in a daring attempt to help salvage the project and bring the Scarlet Speedster to the big screen. Warner Bros. and DC Films passed on the script which led to the latest creative team.
The fact that the film is finally beginning production is a major step forward. Once a film that felt like it was never going to get made, the pace is finally picking up for The Flash.
Struck by a bolt of lightning during an uncanny electrical storm, a forensics student easily becomes the Fastest Man Alive. The Flash stars Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton, Billy Crudup and Sasha Calle with more names expected to join the ever-growing cast in the months ahead.
Andy Muschietti is directing from a screenplay by Christina Hodson, Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco are producing for The Disco Factory in association with DC Films. Warner Bros. Pictures is set to distribute.
The Flash is set to exit the Speed Force and hit theaters on Nov. 4, 2022.
