The Flash Gets New Director, Tagline

Which is harder: Outrunning yourself, or outrunning bad reviews?

by | October 29, 2007 | Comments

Ever since Warner Bros. put Justice League of America in motion, fans have wondered how it will affect the studio’s other DC Comics-derived superhero franchises. JLA‘s impact on Superman and Batman is still somewhat hazy, but how about that dude in red tights with the lightning bolt on his chest and funny little wings over his ears?

MTV Movies reports that Warner’s long-discussed feature-length look at The Flash is still on — and that it’s changed directors again. Shawn Levy has apparently left the project (“for undisclosed reasons”) and been replaced by David Dobkin, also known as the guy who helped bring you Wedding Crashers and Fred Claus.

Dobkin confirms to MTV that his Flash “will exist in the same universe as the upcoming flick” and will act “as a direct spin-off,” meaning he’s in the unusual position of waiting to see who’s cast in JLA before making many moves on his own picture. But that doesn’t mean he can’t share a few bits of information with MTV:

Asked which version of the Flash would be the hero of his flick, Dobkin didn’t hesitate. “Wally West,” he said.

From Levy to Dobkin, “The Flash” movie has certainly courted directors primarily known for their comedic work. But that doesn’t mean they’ll treat the character like a joke, Dobkin said. Asked about his vision for the Flash, Dobkin teased us with a somewhat melancholy tagline: “You can’t outrun yourself.”
