While they were initially announced after Batman v Superman, DC Films and Warner Bros. haven’t had much success in advancing the solo Flash and Cyborg movies. Granted, The Flash has lost a few directors and gone through various re-writes but since the announcement of Flashpoint at comic-con we haven’t heard much about the project. As for Cyborg, there has been very little (if any) developments in a solo film.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Ezra Miller (The Flash), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) offered an update on the status of the Flash and Cyborg solo films. See what they had to say:
Fisher: There’s a lot in development for sure. I think after people see Ezra’s performance they’ll be banging down the door for a Flash film.
Momoa: I giggled so much. It’s so fun to belly up and laugh when your friends are just killing it. Flash is amazing.
Miller: I think there’s going to be a huge demand for Cyborg’s film as well because of the emotional gravity this brings. It’s what we find in the Nolan Batman movies. Ray brings this level of artistry to this role that’s so exciting. Look, we never know anything. To be perfectly honest with you, they keep us in the dark.
While reviews are still embargoed, critics have been allowed to tweet their spoiler-free reactions to the movie, which all seem to be mildly positive. Miller’s The Flash is being named as the standout but I’ve seen a lot of critics praising Cyborg, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see fans eager to see both of these solo movies.
