First Joss Whedon confirms he’s left the “Wonder Woman” project, now on the same weekend David Goyer has revealed he’s no longer involved with “The Flash”.
The “Batman Begins” scribe and “Blade: Trinity” director confirmed on his official blog yesterday that he is no longer writing and directing Warner Bros. planned film version of the superfast superhero.
Goyer says “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.”
Similar reasons to why Whedon left the “Wonder Woman” project from the sounds of it. Goyer had been keen on getting Ryan Reynolds to play the wise-cracking red jumpsuited character – will Reynolds still be interested now that Goyer’s off?
The other big question – these things always happen in threes so what’s going to be the third? Brett Ratner directing “Superman Returns…Again” or something?
