DC Comics revealed major information about the upcoming The Flash movie in the DC Extended Universe when the film's title, Flashpoint, was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, but no official announcement as to who will direct the film starring Ezra Miller as the DCEU's Flash.
However, DC Films head Geoff Johns may have given a hint as to who he would like to see as director. During his Thursday, July 20 panel, Johns told fans that Robert Zemeckis is his personal favorite director.
Zemeckis, who directed the classic Back to the Future trilogy and won an Academy Award for 1994's Forest Gump, recently emerged as a candidate for The Flash movie making Johns' comment even more tantalizing.
While more information regarding the film develops, fans will next see Miller in Justice League this fall.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
