People are already excited to know about The Flash even before its release. The movie received positive reviews from critics after it was shown to the press at CinemaCon 2023. However, the film’s creators have also begun to discuss it in addition to the screening.

For a while, it seemed unlikely that The Flash would ever reach theaters because of all the starting, stopping, pausing, and stalling. However, that moment is almost here as Warner Bros. has scheduled the premiere for this summer.

The film has been in the news a lot lately, thanks to the recent Warner Discovery merger as well as the scandals surrounding its lead star, Ezra Miller. For the unversed, the 30-year-old actor has a history of illegal activity and multiple scandals.

The question of The Flash’s place in this new universe arises, in light of the recent announcement of James Gunn taking over the DC Universe. He is said to be revamping it with Peter Safran.

Director Andy Muschietti Take On The Flash: 2

Like everything else in the DC Universe right now, The Flash’s sequel is also uncertain. We usually find out by the end credits, whether our masked heroes will appear in another film (just as studios like Marvel plan decades in advance). 

This is still uncertain for The Flash 2. But Andy Muschietti’s response has sincerely made it less certain. 

In a recent interview, Muschietti revealed that there haven’t been any discussions about The Flash 2. Right now, everyone’s attention is on how well the first movie does. If the movie does well, there’s a chance the franchise will continue. To quote him:

“We didn’t talk about it. I think that we’re all waiting to see how this movie does. Of course, there’s excitement about continuing the story, especially if this movie is successful.”

He also mentioned that DCU is developing a plan for the future. It’s uncertain whether The Flash 2 will be included as he went on to say:

“Of course, there’s an architecture in DC that is brewing, and it’s being created. And the question is, will this new architecture absorb this story? The good thing about the multiverse is that it is possible. The multiverse allows all these different worlds to coexist and interact. And so hopefully, yes. We don’t know yet. That’s the truth.”

Therefore, no firm answer has been provided yet.

The Flash Director Hints Ezra Miller Might Return For The Sequel

Even though there is much more excitement surrounding Ezra Miller‘s upcoming movie than there was for the previous two DC movies, the future of The Flash franchise is still in question. James Gunn and Peter Safran, the presidents of DC Studios, will first observe The Flash’s box office performance, similar to how they did with Shazam 2.

Only then will it be decided whether or not to make a sequel. The question is whether Ezra Miller, who plays the lead character in The Flash, will likely continue with the franchise, considering their involvement in various criminal charges.

Andy Muschietti did give a brief update, despite the Justice League actor not being at CinemaCon, and not even being expected to promote the movie. 

“Ezra is well now. We’re all hoping that they get better. They’re taking the steps to recovery. They’re dealing with mental health issues, but they’re well. We talked to them not too long ago, and they’re very committed to getting better.”

It is unknown whether Miller will receive a second chance in the DC Universe, but there are already rumors that James Gunn wants Muschietti to direct The Brave and the Bold. 

The Flash is set to release in theaters on June 16, 2023.
