To further complicate things, Ezra Miller will be filming on WB's third Fantastic Beasts movie in July, so it looks as if The Flash won't start filming until the end of 2019, which also means the movie likely won't be released in theaters until 2021. One of the films that has been talked about a lot is the solo Flash film, but it has had a tough road. And since The Flash movie - which curiously, never received an official green light from the studio - is still undergoing script revisions, the studio chose to push production to late 2019, putting the potential The Flash release date on track for 2021.
According to Variety, the movie was expected to commence shooting in March next year ahead of a 2020 release. Now, Warner Bros.is closer than even to making The Flash happen, but it's facing another setback. Dope director Rick Famuyiwa later replaced Grahame-Smith before leaving the project for the same reasons.
The Flash and Cyborg standalone movies have sadly been the biggest victims of Warner Bros.' tenuous grasp on its DC cinematic universe.

After discussing the issues with "The Flash" movie and why it is being delayed, the writers state: "The studio is not now moving forward with Batman and Superman movies featuring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively". Now I have to wonder if we'll get a Flash movie at all, or if he'll be consigned to the void like Ray Fisher's potential Cyborg movie.
A primary issue: Ezra Miller, who portrayed the Flash in Justice League (2017), and is tabbed to reprise the role, is already locked-in for duty in another high-profile Warner Bros. project.
"Just the fact that the character is unique from other superheroes in that he doesn't completely have his shit together like Superman does", Daley explained in an interview earlier this year.
