The Flash was announced all the way back in October of 2014, but it’s been through a lot of changes since then. Multiple directors have come and gone, and then last year at Comic-Con Warner Bros. announced that the movie would be Flashpoint. If it was anything like the comic with the same name, it would have included many Justice League characters as well. But after that movie bombed last year, it seems like Warner Bros. isn’t in a rush to make a big team up movie again.
Last month The Hollywood Reporter hinted that Flashpoint was going in a different direction, and over the last couple of weeks The Wrap reporter Umberto Gonzalez has tweeted emojis in response to the movie, strongly hinting that it was dead. But today Umberto posted another tweet, practically saying “Flashpoint is dead” with an Avengers: Infinity War meme of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Flashpoint Batman:
Flashpoint being dead and The Flash getting a proper solo movie makes a lot of sense after Justice League. With Game Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein officially signed on for The Flash, they probably have their own ideas they want to bring to the table.
Would you be okay with Warner Bros. moving forward with a solo Flash movie instead of Flashpoint? Let me know your thoughts on this story in the comments below.
