Time is running out and Barry Allen is trying to stay true to his word and be The Fastest Man Alive!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ezra Miller is spearheading The Flash solo film and getting it up to speed by taking on the responsibility of writing the script for the film himself! Not only that, Ezra Miller has asked iconic comic book writer Grant Morrison (Doom Patrol, Green Lantern) to aid him in getting this script together.
For the past couple of years, DC Films projects like The Flash, Cyborg, Gotham City Sirens, The Batman (just to name a few) have all been stuck in some kind of development hell. Slowly but surely, DC Films and Warner Bros. have been losing its core cast that makes up its Cinematic Universe.
From Ben Affleck to Henry Cavill, to Will Smith and his renegade Suicide Squad members. DC Films have been shaky to say the least. You can now possibly add Ezra Miller to that list. As his contract is almost up and he has one foot in and one foot out of Warner Bros Studios.

It may be zero hour for Ezra Miller and The Flash.
In an effort to stay on as star of the DC Comics-based movie, Miller has taken it upon himself to write his own script…and enlisted the help of comics author Grant Morrison.
The reason is this: Miller has his own…darker…vision for what the movie should be. But it clashes with what directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have in mind.
It’s a shocking move and if the studio, which is already on the path of fun and light (see Aquaman, Shazam!) but made a deal for Miller and Morrison to do their version regarldess, doesn’t go for it, Miller’s run as hero Barry Allen could be cut short.
As I mentioned before, Miller’s future as The Scarlet Speedster is dimming. The script will reportedly be turned in rather quickly, and if WB is impressed, Miller stays. If they aren’t, well, he walks.
Word is that Ezra Miller and the directors of The Flash film have been arguing over content for the film. The directors want a more lighter tone for the film, while Ezra Miller has a darker vision for his version his solo film.
The debate shall be settled once and for all by the end of the month. Whether this film will see the light at the end of the Speed Force tunnel is another conversation entirely.
