It seems that fans of The Flash will have to wait longer than expected. Rick Famuyiwa, who was tapped by Warner Bros. to bring the Scarlet Speedster to the big screen, recently left the movie.

Citing "creative differences", he is the second director to part ways the production of the movie, which has actor Ezra Miller playing as Barry Allen, also known as The Flash. This comes as a surprise, as the director was known to be excited to work for the movie, not only due to growing up with the character, but found Miller to be a phenomenal young actor. Famuyiwa was contacted by the studio after the release of the movie Dope, which he directed.

According to News Everyday, his pitch for a version of the movie did not sit well with the studio, and while he is leaving the production, he still wishes well to the group as they tackle on the Speed Force.

It should be noted that the first director of the film, Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote the scenario for the movie, also left due to creative clashes with the studio.

ITech Post shares that the release date of March 16, 2018 will be moved as well due to the movie not having a director. Miller also has some commitments that have to be met during this time, which could also be a factor for the delay. This will be the second time, if ever, that The Flash movie will have a schedule change.

The Flash, known for his super speed, is one of the central characters for DC's Justice League. His character was teased in the movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, as one of the files Bruce Banner/Batman (played by Ben Affleck) downloaded from Lex Luthor's (Jesse Eisenberg) computer system, along with Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Mamoa).
