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?
