Lightning Strikes Twice - More Bad DC News

I just posted the bad news that Joss Whedon has left the Wonder Woman movie, and now I have to report (via Superherohype.com) that The Flash film is in limbo. What is DC smoking? I certainly do not want them to just churn out crap, but this is just depressing. If Iron Man and Ant-Man can get their own movies with Marvel, why can't the Flash and Wonder Woman?

According to David Goyer:

Well, I've been waiting a few months to relate this news -- but I am sad to say that my version of The Flash is dead at WB. The God's honest truth is that WB and myself simply couldn't agree on what would make for a cool Flash film. I'm quite proud of the screenplay I turned it. I threw my heart into it and I genuinely think it would've been the basis of a ground-breaking film. But as of now, the studio is heading off in a completely different direction. I expect you'll hear of some new developments on that front shortly. But in happier news, I'll soon be able to report on what I've been doing INSTEAD of The Flash. Stay tuned.

No! DC needs to make up their minds! We want quality superhero movies!

Let's just hope the GL movie staring Jack Black is still active. ...wait, I mean, I hope that DC cancels that one too.

WB wants to wait till after the next Superpoo movie by Singer. WB is afraid they won't make money anymore.
