Rick Famuyiwa Just Directed The Fastest Man Alive And It Wasn't THE FLASH

Rick Famuyiwa was recently confirmed as replacing Seth Grahame-Smith in the director's chair of Ezra Miller's standalone Flash movie but he's already directed The Fastest Man Alive....

In a new Gatorade commercial for the upcoming  2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the sports drink company hired Rick Famuyiwa to direct the likes of Paul George, Serena Williams and Usain Bolt - universally recognized as the fastest man alive for a new spot promoting the gold medal hopefuls ahead of the start of the competition.  It's unlikely that the commercial will give us any insight into how Famuyiwa plans to shoot the Flash but it's undeniably meta that he's directing the Fastest Man Alive in both comics and the real world.  







In related news, Famuyiwa was recently spotted in London and confirmed via social media that he was on his way to the set of the Justice League movie. How do you think the exchange between Famuyiwa and Zack Snyder went?
