A Sequel to ‘The Flash’ Has Already Been Written But May Never Be Made?

We’re less than two weeks out from The Flash finally hitting screens. The early word is quite positive, our own editor Joey Magidson is seeing it this evening, and it does seem like the film has turned out successfully. So, a sequel should be a no-brainer for DC, right? Well, yes and no, as we’ve recently learned.

According to Variety, in a longer article about the movie’s release, there’s word that a sequel to The Flash has already been written but may just wind up on ice. The whole article is worth a read, but it makes sense. If Ezra Miller is, according to director Andy Muschietti, truly integral to the role, but still too wrapped up in their legal issues to continue, it would make a second outing tough. We’ll see what happens, but it’s definitely possible that The Flash will be one and done, no matter how good it is.

Also, aren’t they having to put this entire continuity to bed at some point? Don’t they have to kill the “Snyderverse” in order to make room for James Gunn’s rebooted DC movie continuity? I know the third Wonder Woman and that Ava DuVernay New Gods movie has already been CANX’ed, and I’m frankly shocked they haven’t just buried Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, already.

I’ll know more tonight when I see it, but I suspect the end of the film pretty fully removes the character from the Snyderverse of it all and allows Gunn and company to do as much or as little with Flash as they want, going forward.
