Now, while the imminent release of a shiny new trailer may be providing the internet with a whole lot of -related overexcitement this coming weekend, it's worth noting that many fans are still a little concerned about certain elements of 's future plans. With Ben Affleck's commitment to the cause in question, and cinematic certainty beyond 2018's Aquaman at a massive premium, it's perhaps unsurprising that some devotees of the DCEU are growing concerned at an apparent lack of detailed forward planning.

It's also possible, of course, that the apparent lack of consistent long-term thinking is actually kind of a good thing. For instance:

The Reason 'The Flash' Doesn't Have A New Director Yet Might Be Good News For Fans

That, at least, is the argument Variety's Justin Kroll recently made on Twitter, revealing that is simply taking full advantage of star 's busy schedule (and, more specifically, his work on the upcoming ) to spend as much time finding the right director for the hero's upcoming solo movie.

Which, seeing as the film's last two directors (Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa) left the project in fan-disappointing circumstances, seems to be an entirely sensible decision. After all, while we all want to see a Flash-centric solo movie sooner rather than later, it's surely better that Warner Bros. find the right person for the job, as opposed to just flinging the gig at whoever happens to have a gap in their schedule. What's more, that same delay would seem to offer DC time to polish up the film's screenplay, and to properly sync the whole project up with the wider DCEU.

In other words? A delayed Flash movie might just mean a better Flash movie. Which is nice.

What do you think, though? Are you happy to wait longer to see The Flash if it turns out better in the end? Let us know below!
