'The Flash' Movie News Update: It seems like DC fans are expecting way less from the movie adaptation of 'The Flash' if compared with the enduring 'The Flash' series now taking its 3rd season run. The reason? The director and the actor.

It is quite obvious that the DC Extended Universe is slowly taking its pace regarding the expanding demands of comic fans and avid movie critics. It is known that DC often takes a blow or two because they seem to never get in par with Marvel when it comes to film-making.

'The Flash' movie adaptation will be the first ever to feature the Scarlet Speedster on his solo movie. The character Barry Allen played by Grant Gustin was well-received by comic fans, and is currently running on its 3rd season. But for the movie, it will be played by Ezra Miller, which made many felt dismayed over this decision.

Well, DC had the reputation in disappointing their fans and film critics. The films 'Man of Steel' and 'Batman vs Superman' resulted to an eerie and dark atmosphere which contrasted with the fun and exciting Marvel movies - and this left a big blow on DC's movie franchise.

Now this time, 'The Flash' will most likely receive the same reaction, pretty much the same expectation fans have with the upcoming 'Justice League', 'Aquaman', and 'Wonder Woman'. But there is another problem for Scarlet Speedster aside from its actor - the director.

The original director, Seth Grahame-Smith dropped out as the film's director back in April. After that, Rick Fumiyama became the replacement. However, due to creative differences, Fumiyama left as well which leaves the film without a director, as reported by Cinemablend.

So what would be the outcome for 'The Flash' movie which is set to debut on March 18, 2018? Without a director and having a different actor than expected, how would our Scarlet Speedster end up? We'll just have to wait for more updates anytime soon.
