Jeffrey Dean Morgan: ‘Flashpoint’ is dead, ‘The Flash’ will be “more of an origin story”


Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. announced Flashpoint. Now a year later, that movie appears to be officially dead. MTV caught up with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who would have played Batman in Flashpoint (and hasn’t been shy about teasing it). This time though, he had a disappointing update.

“When Zack Snyder was involved with the DC universe more, I think there was a real possibility,” Morgan said about playing Batman in Flashpoint. “But now that he’s kind of stepped away a little bit I’ve heard different things that Flashpoint might not be going in that direction. It will be more of an origin story for Flash.” Check out his comments at the 9:34 mark of the video below.

Morgan’s claims back up previous reports that said Flashpoint wasn’t happening and that The Flash would go back to being a solo movie. Earlier this year, Game Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein officially signed on to direct The Flash.

Are you disappointed that Flashpoint isn’t happening? Let me know in the comments below.
