The flash may have a new director and he has a pretty amazing resume. Robert Zemeckis director of such classics as Back to The Future, Cast Away, Who Framed Rodger Rabbit, one of the greatest American movies of all time Forrest Gump, and 2007’s Beowulf. This man has been apart of some amazing movies as a director but even more so as a writer and producer with movies like, 1941, The Polar Express, Real Steel, Flight,  and the classic Contact. Him taking over for The Flash solo movie after Justice League would be the best thing ever for the DC Extended Universe which to date its best movie is still the divisive Man of Steel. The Flash is a light hearted character so Zemeckis would be the perfect fit for him plus he has experience with time traveling movies and time travel is very much a thing The Flash can do. For those who don’t know The Flash is a superhero who after being struck by lighting he gains the ability to run faster than the speed of light and eventually become fast enough to run back in time and to the future as well. According to Screenrant, “After losing two previous directors, Warner Bros. and DC’s The Flash may end up the better for it as a new rumor reports Back to the Future‘s Robert Zemeckis is in talks to helm the film. Back when DC and WB first announced their plans for a shared universe, this year’s Justice League was meant to be followed by films focusing on the Flash and Cyborg. Unfortunately, things behind the scenes at DC have been rocky. The Batman has had a number of creative shakeups, Shazam‘s Dwayne Johnson will now star in a separate Black Adam movie, and Cyborg has had very little movement.” Fingers crossed that they can keep this director because Rick Famuyiwa is also a amazing director stepped down because of creative differences.
