‘The Flash’ Production Halted Following Accident on Set

The long, arduous journey to get The Flash into development and finally begin production has unfortunately met another setback, this time interrupting the actual filming of the movie. Reports out of the UK indicate that an accident has occurred on the set of The Flash while shooting on location in Glasgow, causing the apparent hospitalization of a member of the camera crew.

Glasgow Live is reporting that a camera operator was involved in a collision with a stunt man in full Batman garb who was riding atop the Batcycle in the Andy Muschietti-directed production. Eyewitnesses claim that the cameraman, on a motorcycle of his own, accidentally collided with the Batcycle from the rear while racing down one of the city streets in an attempt to capture the action up close. There has been no official word from Warner Bros. just yet, but filming immediately paused while the crew member had to be extricated from underneath the vehicle and subsequently received medical attention. All indications are that the injured party was then treated at a local hospital, while an ambulance was seen leaving the site. However, no other details or updates are known at this time.

The Path to The Flash

We recently reported on pictures taken from the UK set that showed off the newly-redesigned Batcycle that will appear in the multiverse-spanning crossover film, with the stuntman’s Batman outfit pointing towards an appearance by Ben Affleck‘s costumed crime-fighter. Michael Keaton is also set to make his grand return to the DC universe, having seemingly hung up the cowl for good in Batman Returns nearly 30 years ago.

Somewhere in the middle of all this action, presumably, will be Ezra Miller‘s Barry Allen. The Flashpoint-inspired film will recount the complications that spring up as a result of some serious timeline shenanigans on Barry’s part. In the famous comic series, the Flash travels back in time to prevent the death of his mother, but these actions only create another splintered universe and alternate timeline.

As of yet, it is unknown just how much of a setback this will cause production. Obviously, the health and safety of the injured crewmember are of paramount importance and we can only hope for his full recovery. Blockbuster film sets are notoriously dangerous places to work, which is why the director and producers work overtime with all involved parties on multiple levels of production to ensure a safe working environment. We’ll provide more updates as they come in.

Here’s Where You Can Stream Every Mission: Impossible Movie

(Welcome to Where to Watch, which provides a clear and simple answer to the question, “Hey, where can I watch this thing?” In this edition: the Mission: Impossible franchise.)

Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie has taken control of this franchise in recent years (largely for the better), and he’s currently working on making films with franchise mega-star Tom Cruise reprising his role as Ethan Hunt. Licensing rights are notoriously finicky, but as of this writing, here’s where you can stream every Mission Impossible movie. Just, uh, don’t try any of these stunts at home.

Mission: Impossible

Where to stream: Paramount+, FX Now

Brian DePalma directed the first entry in this film franchise way back in 1996. While it’s fairly low-key compared to what would come later, it’s still a crackerjack thriller with a great ensemble, some surprising twists, and one of the very best heist scenes ever committed to film. How many other heist films feature my dude Jean Reno killing a rat with his bare hands in an air duct to keep his colleague from being detected? I rest my case.

Mission: Impossible II

Where to stream: Paramount+, FX Now

John Woo‘s sequel is largely maligned, but I’m willing to go to bat for this one. It’s far more stylish than its predecessor (arguably even too stylish for its own good), but at least it has a distinct identity, which was seemingly the point of hiring a different director for each entry in the early days of this franchise. I also enjoy the relationship between Cruise and Thandiwe Newton, as well as the scenery-chewing villain turn from Dougray Scott, and god damn it, Woo’s whole “slow-mo birds” schtick actually conforms pretty well to Hunt and his antics.

Mission: Impossible III

Where to stream: Paramount+, FX Now

J.J. Abrams‘ feature directorial debut feels like this series’ most forgotten entry, and frankly, there are parts of this movie that don’t work very well. Ethan Hunt and his team spend the whole movie chasing a MacGuffin called the “rabbit’s foot” and it’s never made clear exactly what that even is, and the actors playing Hunt’s team are a bit lackluster. (When was the last time you saw Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in anything?) But Philip Seymour Hoffman delivers the greatest villain turn in the entire franchise, and the introduction of Michelle Monaghan and Simon Pegg as vital supporting players makes this an important, if somewhat slight, entry.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Where to stream: Paramount+, Hulu

Incredibles director Brad Bird stepped into the director’s chair for this entry, which, if you’d like to define these movies by their recognizable stunt sequences, is “the one where Tom Cruise scales the Burj Khalifa.” It’s also the one where Jeremy Renner was seemingly going to take over the franchise as a new leading man, but Cruise wrestled control back when he realized he didn’t want to give this up quite yet. Good call, Tommy.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Where to stream: Paramount+, FX Now

McQuarrie’s first directorial entry into this series introduced Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), the most exciting female character in these movies. There’s a great opera sequence in which an assassination attempt is foiled, and in a stunt that is basically just shrugged off as no big deal, Cruise grabs onto the outside of a god damn plane as it takes off.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Where to stream: Paramount+, FX Now

The best Mission so far, this one introduces Henry Cavill as the heavy and features the best and most well-rounded collection of stunts in the whole franchise. Ethan Hunt sprints, flies, climbs, fights, hangs, and skydives his way into our hearts all over again, and I can’t wait to see what this creative team has up their sleeves with the next two movies.
