The Flash 2 Screenplay Has Already Been Written

If all goes well when The Flash is released, it won’t be long before the ball gets rolling on a sequel. Over the past year, The Flash star Ezra Miller has made headlines for problematic reasons, bringing his future as the character of Barry Allen into question. While some DC fans have speculated that The Flash could meet a fate similar to Batgirl as a result, the latest word is that the film is moving forward with Warner Bros. Discovery execs are taking a wait-and-see approach to its release. In fact, if it has a strong enough showing, it will even get a sequel.

This information comes from a new report at THR covering some of the plans for what’s ahead in the world of the DCEU. According to the report, The Flash 2 is already written and ready go. This screenplay comes from David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote Aquaman and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. It is said that the finished script doesn’t necessarily mean that the sequel will definitely happen and it’s dependent upon the performance of the first film.

For their part, Miller has since apologized publicly for their recent legal troubles and is now in therapy to help remedy the situation. The actor’s representatives released a statement addressing the controversies, which you can read below.

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment. I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe, and productive stage in my life.”

Warner Bros.

The Flash was written by Christina Hodson based on a story by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, and Joby Harold. It is directed by Andy Muschietti. In addition to Ezra Miller, the film also features no less than two Batman actors with both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck appearing as their respective versions of the Dark Knight. Also featured in teh film are Ron Livingston, Kiersey Clemons, Sasha Calle, and Maribel Verdu.

The Flash will be premiering in theaters on June 23, 2023. Perhaps Warner Bros. Discovery execs are hoping that enough time will have passed by the time the movie is out to avoid incessant backlash over Miller’s involvement. Part of that will also depend upon Miller keeping out of trouble for the foreseeable future as well, as further bad press may once again cast a dark cloud over the film. For what it’s worth, however, the studio seems intent on releasing the movie rather than giving it the Batgirl treatment.
