Robert Zemeckis Could Time-Travel Again With ‘The Flash’
According to movie news outlet Screen Junkies, Robert Zemeckis is in talks to direct 2019’s ‘The Flash‘. This isn’t the first time Zemeckis has dealt with speed and time-travel. He’s famously known for directing ‘Back To The Future‘ and the sequels.
But is Zemeckis the right choice for the superhero genre?
Thankfully, movie insider Umberto Gonzalez took to Twitter to let fans know that Robert Zemeckis isn’t the only director being courted.
Not true. NOT in talks. He took a meeting and that is it. They’re still meeting with other directors. https://t.co/I6jcXsmcVa

While it’s just a rumor, the DC Extended Universe could use a director of this caliber. Zemeckis is a proven director with a Best Director win at the Oscars for ‘Forrest Gump‘ but he’s also made iconic films like ‘Polar Express‘ and ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit‘. He brings a mature level of directing that this franchise needs.
What do you think of Robert Zemeckis as direct of ‘The Flash‘? Could he bring the humor out of Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen? The same humor that critics say the DCEU needs.
Who do you think should direct this film?
