Ezra Miller’s ‘The Flash’ and the upcoming sequel to ‘The Matrix’ have both received release dates from Warner Bros…
Warner Bros. has revealed two important release dates for a pair of highly anticipated films, although judging by past history at least one of them seems less than certain to actually come out on time.
“The Flash” — starring Ezra Miller in the lead role — is now scheduled for release on July 1, 2022.
Now before you get too excited, this particular project has been in development hell for the past few years ever since Miller was cast in the role and then making a small appearance in “Batman V. Superman” and then sharing a large part with an ensemble cast in the critically panned “Justice League” movie.
“The Flash” has undergone numerous director and writer changes ever since the solo film was first announced and Miller seems to be just about the only constant for the movie under every different iteration. The latest version is expected to be directed by Andy Muschietti, who is best known for his work on “It” Chapters 1 and 2.
While “The Flash” is currently scheduled for 2022, Warner Bros. also gave a release date for “The Matrix 4,” which will reunite much of the original cast of those films including Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss along with co-creator Lana Wachowski. “Watchmen” star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and “Iron Fist”s Jessica Henwick have also been added to the cast.
“The Matrix 4” is scheduled to drop on May 21, 2021, which is a particularly interesting date because that’s currently the same date that “John Wick 4” is expected to land in theaters. In other words, it would be double Keanu Reeves features on the same day. Whoa.
Chances are one of the movies will end up moving off that date so they aren’t competing with each other even though both are under different studios.
Keep an eye on that as well as any potential changes with “The Flash” considering the litany of problems that have plagued that film for the past few years.
