The Flash is a new American superhero film based on the same-named DC Comics character. It will be the eleventh film in the DC Extended Universe, produced by DC Films, The Disco Factory, and Double Dream, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / The Flash, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton, Sasha Calle, Kiersey Clemons, Maribel Verd, and Ron Livingston, and is directed by Andy Muschietti from a script by Christina Hodson. Allen flies back in time to prevent his mother’s murder in The Flash, which has unintended repercussions.
By 2004, a film based on the Flash was in the works, with many writers and filmmakers linked to the project until 2014. After that, the picture was rebuilt as part of the DCEU, with Miller starring as the title character. Over the years, several filmmakers were connected to the picture, with Seth Grahame-Smith, Rick Famuyiwa, and the John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein team all quitting due to creative disagreements. In July 2019, Muschietti and Hodson joined the project, and pre-production began in January 2020. The film is based on the Flashpoint comic book narrative, which features numerous DC Comics characters, including Affleck and Keaton, portraying various incarnations of Batman. Filming at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England, began in April 2021.
On November 4, 2022, The Flash will be released in the United States.

In the late 1980s, Warner Bros. recruited comic book writer Jeph Loeb to develop a script for a film based on the DC Comics character the Flash. After impressing them with his writing for Batman Begins, Warner Bros. engaged David S. Goyer to write, direct, and produce The Flash in December 2004. (2005). After working with Ryan Reynolds on the Marvel Comics-based picture Blade: Trinity (2004), Goyer asked him to play Barry Allen / The Flash, with the intention of having Wally West appear in a supporting role. The tone of the film was influenced by Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy and Mike Baron, Mark Waid, and Geoff Johns’ run on The Flash comic book.
Due to creative disputes with the studio, Goyer departed the project in early February 2007, and Shawn Levy was hired to direct and oversee the drafting of a new draft written by Chris Brancato, which used parts from Goyer’s screenplay. Later the same month, Warner Bros. revealed that a Justice League film was in the works, with Michelle and Kieran Mulroney penning the script.
In September of that year, George Miller went on to helm Justice League: Mortal, starring Adam Brody as the Flash. The film was intended to be the start of a new series based on DC Comics characters, with sequels and spin-offs planned, including a feature based on the Flash.
Due to schedule problems with Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, Levy quit The Flash in October 2007. (2009). The film was developed as a spin-off from Justice League: Mortal, with a focus on Wally West, by David Dobkin, who took over as director. Before Justice League: Mortal was canceled and Warner Bros. announced a 2008 release date for The Flash, Craig Wright was developing a story for the picture. Due to the Writers Guild of America strike in 2007–2008, further work was put on hold. By July 2009, Charles Roven had joined the project as a producer, and Geoff Johns had consulted and written a film proposal, which Dan Mazeau turned into a screenplay. Roven said in October that the studio was not confident enough in their take to greenlight the picture, but Mazeau refuted this and stated that the project was proceeding as planned. Green Lantern writers Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim were hired in June 2010 to develop a new treatment for The Flash, based on a recent Johns comic featuring Barry Allen.
On April 19, 2021, principal production began at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England, with cinematographer Henry Braham. Burghley House in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England, was used as a set for Wayne Manor during production in early May. Miller, Clemons, Keaton, and Calle shot sequences in London’s St Paul’s Cathedral in mid-June, with the surrounding locales serving as stand-ins for Central City. Filming for flashback sequences with Affleck and Keaton was also scheduled for later that month in Edinburgh and Glasgow, which would double for Gotham City.
Filming on Ingram Street, George Square, John Street, and Cochrane Street resumed in late July, including various cars, while filming with the Batmobile took place in George Square. Filming was interrupted on July 29 after a camera operator riding a motorbike following the Batcycle on Renfield Street collided with the Batcycle at West George Street and was wounded, though not “seriously damaged.”
By April 2021, Benjamin Wallfisch was slated to write the film’s soundtrack, reuniting with Andy Muschietti after collaborating on It (2017) and It Chapter Two (2019). Previously, Wallfisch composed the theme for DC’s Shazam! (2019).
