The FLASHPOINT Movie Will Reportedly Include Wonder Woman and Other Heroes

During Comic-Con last month, Warner Bros. announced that their upcoming Flash movie would be called Flashpoint. For anyone familiar with the comic books, the whole Flashpoint storyline is a huge deal and it could completely change the DCEU as we know it.

Frank Miller Announces SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE, Giving Him a Real Meaningful Crack at Superman

Comic book writer and artist Frank Miller redefined Batman with Batman: Year One and The Dark Knight Returns just announced he’s developing Superman: Year One. Like his Batman comics, I imagine this could redefine the character Superman, which is actually kind of fascinating.

During a recent interview with Vulture, Miller opened up a little bit about his new project and reveals that he will retell the Superman origin story… in his own way, of course.

Warner Bros. Announces They Are Making FLASHPOINT!!!

With the Warner Bros. always in direct competition with Marvel on Saturday at Comic-con, they are forced to bring out their big guns.

This was the case when they brought out the DC properties. During the panel the studio announced their upcoming slate of superhero movies in a video persentation. They went over the previously announced movies like Green Lantern Corps, Justice League Dark, Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2; they hit us with the title of the upcoming Flash movie. Freaking FLASHPOINT!

That’s right folks, the creative minds at DC are giving The Flash the most complicated/entertaining storyline in all of The Flash‘s history. Flashpoint revolves around The Flash’s power to run so fast that he can manipulate time and the consequences that come with it.

If they stick with the comic arc then it will be in a world where Barry Allen (The Flash) wakes up and the world has changed. Wonder Woman and Aquaman are in a battle for world dominance. A world where Captain Cold is considered a hero and Bruce Wayne is dead.

Barry Allen is forced to find out how the world was changed and how he can bring it back to normal.

If they stick with the original storyline, this should be a massive movie. It can also give DC a chance to solve some problems they have had in the DCEU. Flashpoint was a way of clearing the slate in the DC comic book world. Why couldn’t it do the same in the DCEU?

Ben Affleck Confirms He’s Not Leaving The Batman Role and He’s Excited to Work with Matt Reeves

Yesterday a rumor surfaced that Ben Affleck‘s Batman would be gracefully ushered out of the DCEU. Well, that rumor is false. Affleck confirmed today during the Justice League panel at Comic-Con that he is not leaving the Batman role. In fact, he’s thrilled to be a part of it and he’s excited to work with director Matt Reeves on The Batman. He said:

“I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest part in any universe, Marvel DC, anything–I’m so thrilled to do it. Its fucking amazing. I still can’t believe it. Everyone at the studio tells me I’m their Batman and I believe it. And Matt Reeves? I’d be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves. Im blown away and its an exciting time in the DC Universe. I’m excited to be Batman.”

That doesn’t sound like the kind of guy who plans on leaving the role of Batman anytime soon. He’s stoked to be a part it! I’m glad he’s not leaving. I actually really enjoy Affleck in the role of Batman and it’s great to know that this iteration of the character will continue to be explored in future films.

THE BATMAN Director Matt Reeves Says The Film Will Be Influenced By Alfred Hitchcock

Ever since Matt Reeves stepped into the director’s chair for The Batman, there’s been no concrete information on what we can expect from the film. Today, however, we learned from the director that his film will be influenced and inspired by the films of the great Alfred Hitchcock. If any comic book film could fit in with Hitchcock’s filmmaking style, it’s Batman!

Chris Hemsworth Says Marvel Actors Have A Contract Prohibiting Them From Appearing In DC Films

Marvel actors are not allowed to appear in DC films according to Chris Hemsworth. Comicbook writes that Hemsworth told fans at the Supanova convention in Australia that it’s “illegal,” for stars of Marvel films to appear in any DC property. The move is unsurprising, and I wouldn’t be surprised if DC had a contract with its actors that states the exact same thing.

While DC seems to be a no-go, it appears that appearing in a Sony film is cool as evidenced by Tom Holland jumping between the two as Spider-Man and Josh Brolin appearing as Thanos in Avengers as well as Cable in Deadpool 2. At the rate these companies are producing movies, Marvel and DC will begin to run out of big names to cast if they keep locking down actors for roles! Do you think the move is good, or is it a bit silly to force the actors into an exclusive hero deal?

The official announcement reads as follows:

The legendary star of the classic Batman TV series, which aired from 1966-68, passed away on Friday, June 9 at the age of 88.
