Rick Famuyiwa, director of the acclaimed indie hit Dope, has been hired to helm The Flash, which will star Batman v Superman's Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash. Famuyiwa wasn't one of the directors we theorized could get the gig, but it's certainly an exciting and inspired choice.
The Flash will still be using Grahame-Smith's script, based on a treatment by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, written before the writer/director parted with the project due to creative differences.
Miller appeared in BvS as The Flash, hopping through time to warn Bruce Wayne about the dangers of the future and to reinforce that Lois Lane is the key — whatever that means.
We also saw a brief snippet of Miller as Barry Allen, using his powers as the Fastest Man Alive to stop a convenience store robbery.
The Flash is scheduled for release March 16, 2018.
