Out of the slate of DC Comics movies we got a couple of years ago, there’s one that drew the short straw — The Flash. Of course excluding Cyborg, which seems to be having its own issues. Whether it’s been The Flash losing multiple directors, or an actor who was cast being cut (due to the Justice League screwup) and then coming back on the project; this film has been all over the place.
We’ve seen this movie go through various transformations, and its most prominent being Flashpoint. But as we all know, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore as it’s been switched to an “Untitled Flash Film”.
But the trouble in paradise doesn’t stop there, as the returning Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) spoke about The Flash with Variety:

When asked what’s happening with the project, she said, “No idea, we don’t know yet,” but what would appear to be the most concerning part of her interview was when she was asked if it was put on hold, to which she answered, “Yes, what I will say is that they get to approve every job that I do and, so far, I’m not doing Flash for the rest of the year.”
Of course the most important tell of what she said was that she’s not filming for The Flash for the rest of this year, which falls in line with DiscussingFilm who reported,

For once everything seems to be lining up for the DCEU’s Scarlet Speedster. With an expected start to production being early next year, and Ezra Miller (Barry Allen/The Flash) having met with the current directors. It looks like the hard journey might be worth it.
