Almost all of the members of the Justice League now have their upcoming solo films planned out for production. However, Cyborg and #The Flash's solo movie have yet to be fully confirmed and are experiencing some issues. Now, new reports have revealed that there may be some new developments regarding the production of the solo "The Flash" movie as Warner Bros. Pictures is now eyeing one of the two directors to take over.

Completing the set

Superman's solo movie, "Man of Steel," has already been released and Wonder Woman's movie is set to be released next month. Aquaman's solo movie, on the other hand, is scheduled to be released next year.

The solo "Batman" movie is also in the pipeline, with Ben Affleck recently announcing his resignation as its director so that he can focus more on the role. This means that The Flash and Cyborg are now the only members of the team that still don't have any concrete plans for their own solo films.

New picks to direct

A report from Variety has now revealed that Warner Bros. is now eyeing one of two directors to take over the project. The top two choices reportedly include "Forrest Gump" director Robert Zemeckis and "Kingsman" director #Matthew Vaughn. So far, Warner Bros. has reportedly not made any offers to both parties, but they are apparently demanding that the production for the "The Flash" should start before the year ends. Zemeckis and Vaughn are currently involved in their own projects, and it remains to be seen if either of them is willing to allocate some time to direct the new movie.

Short on directors

Warner Bros. previously revealed that they are planning to release a solo movie for "The Flash" sometime in 2020. However, the company has been having problems with getting their hands on a director that is willing to take on the project.

Last November, the movie's second director, Rick Famuyiwa, exited the project due to "creative differences." Famuyiwa jumped on board the project following the exit of Seth Grahame-Smith, who was originally pegged to helm the upcoming film. Earlier this year, Warner Bros. reportedly hired "King Arthur" writer Joby Harold to rewrite the entire script for "The Flash."

In a previous interview with Ezra Miller, the actor who plays the role of Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Flash, in the DC Extended Universe, it was revealed that there were some concerns regarding the future of the solo film, as it had lost two directors in a short time.
