Hollywood Reporter has the scoop.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are staying in the superhero game.

The screenwriting duo behind Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming are moving over to DC and are in talks to direct Warner Bros.’ Flashpoint movie, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The studio declined to comment.

The film will star Ezra Miller, reprising his role as Barry Allen/The Flash from Justice League. The Flash solo film has previously had two other directors attached. Dope filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa left in October 2016 over “creative differences.” His exit followed that of Seth Grahame-Smith, who had written the script and was attached to helm.

Daley and Goldstein were largely known for penning comedies such as Horrible Bosses and writing and directing 2015’s Vacation before last year’s Spider-Man, which earned more than $880 million worldwide. They also directed Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams’ Game Night, a film that blends the thriller/comedy genres and is set to open Feb. 23.

With Spider-Man: Homecoming being so insanely awesome, this is actually great news.

I did Flash but Supergirl not so much. Still I’ll give it a shot.

THE FLASH (GRANT GUSTIN) WILL CROSS OVER TO JOIN FORCES WITH SUPERGIRL (MELISSA BENOIST) IN AN EPISODE OF “SUPERGIRL,” MONDAY, MARCH 28 ON CBS

The Flash is speeding to National City! THE FLASH star Grant Gustin, in his role of Barry Allen/The Flash, will cross over to SUPERGIRL in an episode to be broadcast Monday, March 28 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Details of the episode will be announced at a later date.

“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making SUPERGIRL – THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL are teaming up!” said THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL Executive Producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally, thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”

SUPERGIRL stars Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh and Jeremy Jordan, with David Harewood and Calista Flockhart. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter are the executive producers of SUPERGIRL, based on the characters appearing in DC Comics, and created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, by special arrangement with the Jerry Siegel Family.

THE FLASH, which airs Tuesdays on The CW, is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Todd Helbing, Aaron Helbing and Sarah Schechter are the executive producers.

Green Lantern 2, Flash and Kim Kardashian as Lara Croft?

Green Lantern is not even out yet, hell we don’t even have a trailer for it yet, but now the HR is reporting that Warner Bros. is already starting development on the sequel.

The studio has hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, all of whom worked on the “Lantern” screenplay, to write a treatment for the second installment.

Green Lantern, is the story of DC Comics Harold “Hal” Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds (who I’m pretty sure my wife has a crush on) as a power ring wielding member of a intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Already shooting in New Orleans, Green Lantern must have made a huge impression on the movie studio to have development on a second installment this far out already starting.

The Green Lantern writting trio of Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim has also been tapped to pen the treatment for the silver-screen incarnation of “The Flash.”

The Green Lanterns are often depicted as being close friends of the various men who have been the Flash, the most notable friendships having been between Alan Scott and Jay Garrick (the Golden Age Green Lantern and Flash), Hal Jordan and Barry Allen, and Kyle Rayner and Wally West (Hal Jordan is also friends with West).

Could this mean DC is working on a possible crossover, sort of like Marvel with the Avengers movie?

Also, and I think this one is false, rumors are circulating that Kim Kardashian wants to play Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider film… I mean I guess. Not like these movies need a good actor, so sure. Does she even have a british accent and isn’t she kinda short?
