As you may know by now, the upcoming DC’s Flash standalone movie will be based on comic book Flashpoint. This crossover story arc is set in an alternate DC universe with significant differences including Bruce Wayne’s father Thomas being the Batman and the ongoing war between the Wonder Woman and Aquaman. After DC and Warner Bros. made the announcement back at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, the further development of the project has been kept under wraps.
Now, actor Ezra Miller, who starred as Flash in Justice League and should return to the role in this Flashpoint movie, went forward saying that the development of the movie is promising.
“The development of the project has been a little Barry Allen-like in its mercurial tendencies.” – Miller said. “But it looks more promising and more exciting than any of the other stages of development that we’ve been in.”
Miller also said that the story of the movie will be everything fans expected and more.
“What fans understand when they hear Flashpoint would be almost like hearing a word like ‘Crisis.’ We start to understand that our precious DC universe will inevitably be torn asunder to an endless, headache-inducing fabric of multiversality. The DC Hyper-Extended Multiverse, as I plan to call it. Quote me!” he added.
According to reports, Gal Gadot and Ray Fisher will reprise their roles of Wonder Woman and Cyborg alongside Miller. Also, there have been rumors that Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead) is being eyed for the role of Thomas Wayne. So far the movie doesn’t have a director, although it is expected to start shooting in the first half of 2018.
