Warner Bros moves forward on ‘Flash’ movie and ‘Justice League’ film, set for 2016, 2017

Warner Bros. has been developing a superhero team-up movie to match Marvel’s Avengers success with their DC characters for some time now, but now they actually appear to be moving forward.

Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy was attached to direct The Flash, here’s what he said at the time.

“I oversaw a draft for about three-and-a-half months.  And, at that time, I learned two things.  One, if you’re going to take on a character like that… I was still the family comedy guy.  And I just felt like, I gotta get a few more under my belt before I can claim the legitimacy of making a movie like that.  And that’s what I’m doing, to be very honest.  I’m not saying I have a master plan to go back to The Flash.  In the end, The Flash went away because Justice League was gonna happen.  And then it didn’t happen.  To my great dismay, because I would have been first in line for that, too.”

For years these projects move forward at DC Comics, so fans will have to stay tuned for updates.
