Flashpoint directors still waiting for deal to be finalized before getting to work

Fresh off the news that Joss Whedon has left the solo Batgirl film, we've got updates from another corner of the DCEU. The directors of the upcoming Flashpoint movie are still waiting for their deals to be finalized.

About a month ago, it was reported that Spider-Man: Homecoming writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were in talks to direct the stand-alone Flash film for DC. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo's deals still haven't been finalized -- meaning they haven't started working on the project yet.

When asked about the status of the film at the premiere of their current project, Game Night, Daley said they're still in negotiations but "deals are in the works right now," and "hopefully, it will work out.”

Goldstein didn't seem too worried, though, joking that the delays were "all about parking spots."

The stand-alone Flash film will star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, aka The Flash. With a duo like Daley and Goldstein, who have primarily worked in the comedy realm, it seems like WB and DC might be making a move to have Flashpoint be a lighter film than some others within the universe. Miller's Allen did provide much-needed comic relief throughout Justice League.

Flashpoint is currently set to hit theaters in 2020, so hopefully they get the parking spot situation figured out shortly.
