The Flash stand-alone movie delayed again

DC's long-awaited big-screen adaptation of The Flash has been delayed once again. 

According to Variety, the movie was due to begin shooting in March of 2019, but now can't as the script is still unfinished.

Production was then expected to shift to next summer, but sadly, star Ezra Miller is already committed to shooting a third instalment of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them in July, meaning production will now be delayed until late 2019.

That would mean the film arriving in 2021 at the earliest. 

Earlier this year, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein became the latest directors to agree to take on the project. 

Daley and Goldstein, who were behind comedy Game Night, became the third directorial appointment on the project, which looks set to be titled Flashpoint. 

Previously both Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, who was previously behind the camera on indie hit Dope, had been in the director's chair, but quit the project before a scene could be shot. 

Presently confirmed to star alongside Ezra Miller in the movie will be Kiersey Clemons and Billy Crudup. 

Miller made his full debut as The Flash in Justice League, which brought together Flash, Ben Affleck's Batman, Henry Cavill's Superman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher's Cyborg and Jason Momoa's Aquaman as they united for the first time. 

Justice League is available to order now from hmv's online store here.
