The Flash loses Director

Ever since "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" proved that it was a failure, Warner Brother's DC Cinematic Universe is just being demoralized bit by mortal bit. At first, it was "Wonder Woman" losing its first director over "creative differences", and now, the former director for "The Flash" has departed because of a similar fate. [hit the jump to continue]

Seth Grahame-Smith has reportedly severed ties with the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) side of Warner Bros. Pictures because of "creative differences", a term only used because a lot more happened than just "creative differences". Things must have been pretty bad behind the scenes at WB for the director to just up and leave this project. No director walks away from a big budget superhero movie because they had a different opinion on something creatively.

Devin Faraci has even revealed why this is the case, as he says there has been massive fallout that has happened after "Batman V Superman's" less than stellar debut just last month. The movie originally thought to be the first success for the DCEU has ended up causing the cinematic universe more harm than good. But to view the situation from Smith's eyes, I'd jump off that ship too once I saw how fast it was sinking. All of the big shots at WB have hyped up the DCEU as some type of "creator driven" machine that's going to set itself apart from the rest of the comic book films out there. Yet sadly, we haven't seen anything to come out of these films that would prove that to be true. As news comes out and the days go by, it seems as if we're drawing closer and closer to the compete demise of the DCEU. "The Flash" is still due for a targeted release March 16, 2018.
