Warner Bros. has officially hired Ezra Miller and comics author Grant Morrison to write a script for the long-awaited movie.
Miller and Morrison are looking to create a much darker take on the story. This approach contradicts the original light-hearted script, reports state. At this time, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are the scriptwriters hired back in January 2018.
With the success of recent DC films such as Aquaman and the positive responses to Shazam!, sources claim that the studio is currently favouring going down a happier, light-hearted superhero route.
Furthermore, Ezra Miller is in a race against time as his current deal to play the Flash expires this May. WB’s sources say if Daley and Goldstein’s lighthearted script is chosen, Miller may leave the superhero project.
