Just under a week after signing up to direct "The Flash" feature film, director Rick Famuyiwa has begun doing his research. Famuyiwa, who directed the acclaimed 2015 film "Dope," posted a picture of his stack of "Flash" trade paperbacks on Twitter with the caption "Today was a BLUR."

While many of the titles of the trades are out of sight, a few stories standout thanks to those trades' unique design. A mix of classic "Flash" stories are represented as well as more recent volumes, in addition to "Flash: Rebirth" and selections from Geoff Johns, Scott Kolins and Francis Manapul's run.
Famuyiwa signed on to direct "The Flash" following the departure of previous director Seth Grahame-Smith. Famuyiwa will direct the film from a script written by Grahame-Smith and a treatment provided by "LEGO Movie" directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
Directed by Rick Famuyiwa and starring Ezra Miller, "The Flash" hits theaters on March 16, 2018.
