The 2023 superhero movie would have had 45 writers involved in the script

A high-profile superhero movie to be released in 2023 would have had 45 writers working on it through the various stages of development.

An upcoming superhero movie for 2023 would have had 45 writers involved in crafting the script. 2023 is turning out to be a major year for superhero movies, as ten are slated for theatrical release. Three of Marvel Studios (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Wonders), three of DC (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, the flash, blue beetle), three from Sony (Kraven the hunter, Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse, Madame Web), and one from Paramount Pictures (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Chapter) have all had multiple people working on them, and one movie, in particular, seems to have done a lot of behind-the-scenes work.


According to Deadline, an upcoming high-profile superhero film has reportedly had its final script submitted to the Writer’s Guide of America (WGA), with insiders saying 45 different writers have contributed at different stages of development. Deadline never mentioned the film by name, but it does note that it’s basically impossible for all 45 screenwriters to get credits on the finished film. It’s an extreme example, but the report says having up to 20 writers on a project has become common practice among these types of blockbuster films.

Although the article does not mention the film by name, the safest guess would be that the film in question is the flash. First announced in 2014 as part of the DCEU, the film went through several behind-the-scenes creative changes with various screenwriters attached throughout its development, including Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Joby Harold (Obi Wan Kenobi), John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and even one from star Ezra Miller and screenwriter Grant Morrison before current screenwriter Christina Hodson (Birds of prey) sign. It also doesn’t take into account the number of attempts to make a Flash movie before the DCEU by screenwriters like David S. Goyer (batman begins) and the The Green Lantern trio composed of Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim. With all this behind-the-scenes history, see the flash because the film in question would not be surprising.
