For a film about a hero gifted with speed, getting the Flash's standalone film off the ground has been anything but quick. 

After several years of pre-production purgatory, production for The Flash officially began in April 2021 with a theatrical release date set for November 4, 2022. 

In April, director Andy Muschietti announced that cameras were finally rolling on this intriguing DCU project. But it now seems that the film has picked up some additional "speed."

THE FLASH'S EZRA MILLER IS ON SET

Andy Muschietti posted a photo to Instagram of a chair on set with the name "Barry" on full display to announce that Ezra Miller is now finally filming his character's stand-alone film.

No caption was shared with the photo.

Ezra Miller has played the Scarlet Speedster in prior DCEU movies such as Zack Snyder's Justice League, Batman v. Superman, and more. 

And for his character's solo film, Miller will be reunited with Kiersey Clemons reprising her role as Iris West

But what really has DC fans' attention is the news that this film will open up the franchise's multiverse feature Ben Affleck's DCEU return as Batman and Michael Keaton's Caped Crusader

MORE NEWS "FLASHES" TO COME?

In addition to casting Affleck and Keaton, Ezra Miller's The Flash is also recreating scenes from Tim Burton's version of Gotham City from the 1989 Batman film which starred Keaton and utilizing Affleck's Batmobile

So far, this film is shaping up to be DC fan's dream come true, and the Flash and his abilities are perfectly suited to tell it. 

And now, after so many setbacks, the fact that Miller is confirmed to be on-set and filming means that this film is officially well on its way. 

And while a film with this particular cast is sure to keep story details close to the chest, filming also means the potential for more news and photos as fans anticipate its theatrical release on November 4, 2022.
