This has been a pretty crazy week for comic-book movie news hasn’t it? David Goyer is writing the upcoming Superman reboot! One of these five interchangeable young actors (or the guy from The Office) may play Captain America! But now news has hit that trumps both those stories.
The Flash may have a director!
Or not. IESB is reporting exclusively that their best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris that “WB is very high on [Greg] Berlanti” to direct their highly anticipated feature film of DC’s The Flash. Don’t be ashamed if you don’t recognize Berlanti’s name as his biggest film so far is… going to be The Flash.
I kid Mr. Berlanti, I kid. His resume as director includes The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy and the upcoming Life As We Know It starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel as two strangers whose mutual best friends die and leave their kid to them both. While those works don’t speak to the superhero genre he is also one of the four writers behind next year’s Green Lantern. Personally I’m behind Greg Berlanti simply because he also wrote several episodes of the under-seen ABC show “Eli Stone.”
This news hasn’t been officially announced yet, so things may change before The Flash goes into production.
What do you think about Greg Berlanti directing The Flash? And do you honestly care?
