WB Reportedly Awaiting Justice League Response Before Committing to Flashpoint

Warner Bros. rocked both Hall-H and the internet during SDCC this past summer with the announcement that The Flash’s solo venture would revolve around, and be entitled, Flashpoint. Now, however, it seems the studio is stalling their exploration of the project in any serious fashion.

According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, who recently appeared on Meet the Movie Press, (via Heroic Hollywood), the studio is waiting for reactions on Justice League before proceeding with production on Flashpoint. As such, the hunt for The Flash film’s director has also slowed to a stop–the last reported frontrunner was Back to the Future’s Robert Zemeckis. A script has already been prepared by Robin Hood: Origins scribe, Joby Harold. Additionally, this notion of waiting may also extend to other films in Warner Bros.’ DC-centric movie slate.

Should this rumor prove true, a lot is contingent on Justice League’s ability to connect with the audience, and likely critics. For now, though, the wait for the film itself continues on. Justice League hits theaters November 17.
