‘The Flash’ Will be an Adaptation of the Flashpoint Story Line #SDCC2017
News surrounding The Flash have been a mix bag between good and bad things to report. Well at SDCC Warner Brothers has announced major news regarding the Scarlet Speedster and that is that his first solo outing will recreate Flashpoint.
Flashpoint is an arc that sees our hero Barry Allen go back in time to alter the past. However, the ramifications are ultimately devastating and he must figure out a way to reset reality to what it once was. This story is actually depicted in a DC animation film, Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox, which received a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Although they tagged it as a Justice League film because of the involvement of all the Justice League.
While the film may be altered a bit to be more solely focused on Flash, the original story arc pits the Atlanteans against the Amazonians, as well as teaming Flash with Cyborg and Thomas Wayne’s Batman. Chemistry between Cyborg actor Ray Fisher and Flash actor Ezra Miller is very good as both enjoyed joking with one another on set of Justice League. This is a good sign for a team up in The Flash being successful between the two.
Further details about The Flash will be revealed as we get closer to the start of production, but if they look to adapt this movie closely to the original arc we could see Jeffrey Dean Morgan suit up as Batman (I’M SOLD), Gal Gadot fight Amber Heard and Jason Momoa, and get a Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller bromance.
The Flash is set to be released in 2018. In the meantime let us know what you think of this recent development in the comments section below!
