Just when things were looking good for Warner Bros. DCEU after the release of Wonder Woman and Aquaman, The Flash brings back memories of how the shared universe continues to struggle. In the latest bit of news, Ezra Miller reportedly seems to be very unhappy with the direction that the speedster is heading towards in the standalone film and is now working with DC comics writer Grant Morrison on a brand new script that will compete against the one being written by directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. And this news comes at a time when Miller’s contract to play as Barry Allen expires this coming May. More on the report here below.
At some point in time the DC Extended Universe looked like the alternative choice to everything Marvel Studios.

Now a new report confirms that the standalone film won’t be able to make its 2020 release, and now will hit theaters in 2021. More on the report below.
