However, that schedule has reportedly been delayed due to issues with the script - a delay that Variety says is extended due to Ezra Miller's role in the third Fantastic Beasts film, which begins filming next summer.

The Warner Bros. plan to launch the Justice League character in his own solo adventure is now looking more like a marathon than a mad dash. That would leave the now untitled film potentially set to hit theaters in 2021, but a formal release date hasn't been set for The Flash. If the latter, it would be too bad, because Miller's zippy performance as the Flash was one of the few bright spots of Justice League.

The Flash and Cyborg standalone movies have sadly been the biggest victims of Warner Bros.' tenuous grasp on its DC cinematic universe. However, the script is still being worked on, and it is unlikely to be ready in time to hit the production start date. In March of this year, Game Night and Spider-Man: Homecoming's John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were brought on to the project, and are still attached to the project at this point and time.

The skit also made fun of the fact that Kanye's iPhone password is 000000 (this is NOT fake news). Redd's West concluded by giving a summary of his, uh, random ramblings.

The Flash film, which still does not now have a title, has gone through quite an array of evolutions since the DC Extended Universe's origins. They replaced "Dope" director Rick Famuyiwa, who left the film in 2016 over creative differences.

While details about the Flash film are still under wraps, fans can expect Miller and Kiersey Clemons to lead the project, with the latter finally making her debut as Iris West after being cut from Justice League.

EW knows that timelines can get tricky in the superhero world, so we compiled a complete rundown of the bumpy road for The Flash.
