Chris Miller and Phil Lord were originally eyed to write and direct The Flash, but their hectic schedules and commitment to that Han Solo movie led to them instead just penning the treatment which Seth Grahame Smith would later use as a basis for his screenplay. When he later parted ways with Warner Bros. over creative differences, a new director was found in the form of Dope's Rick Famuyima.

Talking in a recent interview with IGN, The LEGO Movie helmers weighed in on why he was tapped to take over and what they think he'll bring to the table. "We work with Rick and have been developing a pilot with him for a little while and are really big fans of his and Dope," Lord says. "I think he's a rad choice." Miller meanwhile would echo those sentiments, adding: "He's going to do a great job on it."
 
Interestingly, they went on to reveal that they weren't the ones responsible for bringing some humour to the DC Films Universe through The Flash as that's always what the studio had in mind for the Scarlet Speedster. "They had that planned for him in the first place," Miller revealed. "That's why they were talking to us in the first place because that's how they wanted to go with that character, and I think that's why they came to us. He brings in new energy. Batman has to be kind of bummed out because his parents died and Superman is already established as a serious person and Wonder Woman's angry about stuff. Stuff's happening. But then you've got a guy who's like, 'Eh, whatever, I run fast!'" 

Set visit reports point to Ezra Miller being the highlight of Justice League, an interesting development considering how negative many fans have been about the talented actor taking on the role here!
