The dust hasn’t even settled yet for Christopher Miller and Phi Lord after seemingly being fired from the Han Solo film but it has now been revealed that the pair has been talking to Warner Bros. about directing The Flash. This makes a lot of sense because there’s history here. Before Seth Grahame-Smith wrote the screenplay for The Flash and the project began to unravel, Phil Lord and Chris Miller penned a treatment then departed the project and passed on the directing duties so they could work on Han Solo.
According to The Wrap, it looks like the door could be open for the duo to return to the Warner Bros. and DC Comics Extended Universe. The report states that during the production hiatus for the Han Solo spinoff, which now they’ve been fired from, the directors met with the studio about the project. Apparently, they “met about the possibility of directing The Flash after Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences last year.”
This was obviously long before they were dropped from the project but it could have been a sign that they were preparing for their exit even then. The report is vague, so it’s hard to say if they’ll return to the project for sure because the site states that Robert Zemeckis is still the frontrunner for the project. The Flash has been faced with a ton of issues, but with the direction that DC is moving in, it seems that the Lord and Miller are better suited for telling stories in the DC Universe.
