'The Flash' Loses Director, 'Aquaman' Maintains Director for Now

Well, looks like someone new is going to have to tell Ezra Miller where to super-jog. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Seth Grahame-Smith, who was attached to make his directorial debut on The Flash, has left the fast-man project over the usual "creative differences." No word on what those differences were, but given that Grahame-Smith is the novelist behind Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, probably about whether the Flash should race a mummy.

While the news sparked a rumor that Aquaman director James Wan was likewise considering quitting, Wan has since informally shrugged off the report. Last night, he tweeted a photo of himself standing in front of a large poster of the superhero, loosely declaring his commitment to go ahead with this thing. The vision of a fish-controlling man riding some stingrays to screens remains strangely conflict-free.
