Andy Muschietti officially confirms his involvement in directing The Flash solo film and says it’ll be his next movie. 

During a press junket for It: Chapter Two, Muschietti confirmed he will take over the project as director. Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, as well as Rick Famuyiwa, were previously attached to direct the long-gestating project, but ultimately dropped out.

While Muschietti had previously tiptoed around questions about The Flash at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, this marks the director’s first public confirmation of his involvement in the film. The topic of The Flash came up during an interview with Fandango as part of the promotional tour for IT Chapter Two. When asked by correspondent Nikki Novak if he would indeed be directing The Flash, Muschietti matter-of-factly replied, “Yup.

He also offered some insight into what fans could expect. “An element of horror? I don’t think so,” he said. “What captivated me about the Flash is the human drama in it. The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.”

Last week, star Ezra Miller insisted The Flash film is “absolutely confirmed.”The news of Muschietti’s involvement with the film lends credence to that.The Flash is expected to star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen and Billy Crudup as Henry Allen. At the time of writing, The Flash does not have a release date.
