The Flash movie has taken many different forms over the last few years. It was originally going to be a solo Flash movie (with Cyborg featured as well), then last year at San Diego Comic-Con it was announced that the movie would be Flashpoint, and now things seem to be changing again.
The Hollywood Reporter published an article about writer Dan Mazeau’s next project, but included was the following: “He worked on the Warner Bros.’ Flash movie project when it was titled Flashpoint, as well as Johnny Quest, based on the cartoon series.”
Notice the past tense there? It sounds like the Flash movie is no longer Flashpoint, and that’d make sense. A Flashpoint movie would basically be “Justice League 1.5”, and Justice League just bombed at the box office.
Borys Kit, who wrote the article for THR, took to Twitter to comment on the speculation surrounding his line about Flashpoint. But honestly, it doesn’t appear that he cleared things up one way or another.
I didn't say they weren't adapting Flashpoint. All I said was that it wouldn't be titled Flashpoint. But maybe I've said too much. 😜

With Game Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein officially signed on for The Flash, it sounds like the project will be changing again. Based on that news and this new THR report, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it go back to being a solo Flash movie.
Which direction do you hope The Flash movie goes? Would you like a solo movie or Flashpoint? Let me know in the comments below.
