Warner Bros. Sparkle He had more than his fair share of problems before his DCU debut, but his delay could be down to one specific reason.
Originally announced to be in development for nearly a decade, Sparkle It hit one unfortunate hurdle after another as it looks like it will finally hit theaters in 2023. From a multi-staff switch in the director’s chair to general woes revolving around star actor Ezra Miller, concerns about the film have continued to grow as the DC Universe struggles to Gain more positive reception.
While fans got their first look at Sparkle At DC FanDome 2021, Scarlet Speedster’s first big-screen adventure has been largely kept under wraps. But the thing that has fans excited is that Warner Bros. It’s finally on track for a full movie release, following up with three more appearances for the character and giving Barry Allen his first experience as a lead character.
Now, in addition to more general news surrounding this movie, SparkleThe editor opened up about another reason why the highly anticipated outing is taking so long to finish.
The flash editor reveals a big reason for the delay
speak with IBC, Sparkle Editor Paul Machliss revealed new information about a new technology being used for the film, which has pushed back its release date.
While he couldn’t reveal anything about the film, the new technology is said to be able to “Have multiple versions of the same actor on screen” Differently from other films that have done similar things. This would be especially big for Warner Bros., as Sparkle It will be the first film of this magnitude to use the new technology on screen.
The Flash will use at least two different versions of Barry Allen’s hero, highlighting a darker take on the rumored Scarlet Speedster playing a more sinister role. This technique will help better visualize each of Ezra Miller’s roles as the actor interacts with himself in front of the camera:
“Nothing. No, it’s going to be exciting. I mean, we’ve been tasked by Warners with making the best movie we can. What I can say is we’re going to use … we’re the first movie to use a very, very new technology in terms of having multiple versions of the same actor on screen, rather than From the use of closed cameras or even the motion controls we used [Last Night in Soho]. There was a development with some great technology, which I’d like to talk about now, but this time next year once the movie comes out we can go into the nitty gritty and nitty gritty. But it’s very exciting and I’m happy to say we’re definitely the first to use it in a movie of this magnitude. Maybe why it took so long to actually finish. But it’s worth the wait, because it looks great.”
Matchless also praised the way Matt Gauci of Vivid, a technology company that helped work on the film, used it. “Created a completely new system from scratch.” This allows for small pieces to be taken out or brought back in and for the team to have close angles fed directly into the team screens, allowing easy editing and range of motion for all required shots.
Encourage the use of a system called Moxian, a “The Cloud Tool Typically for Managers” and other film professionals for use in watching footage as it is being developed. Once the footage is cut, it is immediately uploaded On the cloud, available to anyone. which you may need to access in the production team.
Machlis looked back on his experience with director Andy Muschietti, who persuaded him to let him use the new technology during the course of the film before realizing how useful it would be for his work:
Andy Muschietti, and he’s a great director, but when I explained to him what I had and then he said, ‘No, no, no, I don’t bother with that kind of thing.’ I don’t need to put…” I said, “I’ll tell you what, give me two weeks.” If you don’t like what I did, if it doesn’t help in a couple of weeks, I’ll go back to the editing group, and you’ll never see me until we can join the director’s cut. He said: OK. So of course, on the first day, I didn’t do anything much. I collect media and put things together. And of course, the next morning, I pitched it to Andy and it was like, he suddenly realized how useful this tool was, as did the producers. I mean, some of them think I just basically turned lead into gold. They’re taken with that kind of like, not just turning around but how it affects the director, how it affects how he adjusts or adapts what he’s doing, looking at yesterday’s work, even starting to look at other work, and … especially if you’re shooting a scene over the course of two days. And so that was very exciting. Of course, two weeks later, he said, “Where do you think you’re going?”
Even with this shot being so wide, Matchless shared how much he loves to be “in the trenches” Working on editing all the shots, learning every moment closely. This helps in the end when he puts the entire movie together months after shooting finished, remembering every bit of footage and every scene that went into the databank:
“In a big movie like a movie like The Flash, shooting becomes six to seven months long. And all of a sudden you’re going to be on all the spots, not just on the soundstage, but in night shots, a whole series… It’s pretty cool, because you’ve been accepted as part of Of the crew. And of course, you do those crew hours. You don’t do the editorials, you just come in gently in the morning, you leave in the evening, and all that kind of thing.. So you’re in the trenches. But, actually, I have to say, I’m having fun So after so many years of being in dark cellars. It’s really invigorating for me… And what happens is you get to know almost everything. And that, as an editor, you get to know every shot of every scene. But then, when you’re present In them, it pays off in huge ways. Because when you’re sitting in the cutting room with the director months later and you’re doing a scene, you go, ‘But ah yeah, do you remember that day, even though you took two it was better, and even though I took Four something’s there, have a look at that. And so you have this callback…which, as an editor, is what you do. You learn to piece together massive amounts of information as you put your movie together, so you can do just that. But the advantage of being on set was A: I built my relationship with Andy over that time, so he and I were very good when it came to editing. But also, we just amassed complete knowledge of the movie. It was indispensable. “
He’s been constantly busy working on this movie since February 2021, he says It will be February next year. When everything is fully completed. And with technology being so useful to him in this movie, he decided to make sure it works the same way for future projects in his timeline:
“Well, it’s one of those things I never thought I’d do until I was invited to. And I mean, it’s pretty exciting. I started in February 2021 and it’s still going. It’s still not quite finished. But I think by the time I’m done On it me and my co-editor Jason Ballantine, I think it’ll be in February next year.It won’t be announced until the end of July, but it’s great to be working on something of this scale with that kind of budget, but also with this kind of technology, which was.. Like I say, the producers have… He just said of them, “I’m not going to work that way again on future productions. ‘And that’s great, just to be motivating and maybe more people get involved in this experience.'”
for reference, Sparkle It has had six different release dates over the years, which are listed below:
- March 23, 2018
- March 16, 2018
- July 1, 2022

Is the delay in flash worth it?
Given that the Flash is one of DC’s iconic heroes, especially one that requires top-notch special effects, this new technology will be one aspect of the movie that fans are watching closely. Rumor has even suggested that multiple versions of Ezra Miller’s lead character are involved in the story, which could make new technology even more necessary to tell the story the right way.
Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of concrete details about what the tech was used for in the movie and how it will play into the story, which already includes some huge events like Michael Keaton’s Batman entering the DCU for the first time. But with the marketing campaign expected to begin in the next couple of months, many are hoping these details will become clearer before long.
Sparkle It is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 23, 2023.
