It seems that the coronavirus shutdown of production on The Batman won’t be the only DC film to take a hit. A new interview with a crew member from Ezra Miller’s The Flash suggests that film will be delaying pre-production.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to shut down movie releases and production, even films that are more than two years from release are being impacted.
Eunice Huthart recently spoke with ScreenRant about her work on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. As her next project is The Flash, it was natural that it would come up as well. “The project I was due to start is The Flash,” said Huthart. “I was supposed to start at about the end of April, beginning of May. I’m not sure what’s happening now with that.”
At this stage, it’s only pre-production that is being delayed, so the film may be able to catch up slightly. Some departments, such as the art department, could even begin their work from home. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see how much this potentially sets the film back if at all.
The Flash is scheduled to hit theaters on July 1, 2022.
