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.
“The Flash” season two wrapped up with an epic finale – and one of Barry Allen’s worst decisions yet. The scarlet speedster headed back in time to the night his mother was killed (again), but this time, he saved her life. It’s a huge decision that undid pretty much everything Barry has done over the past two seasons – coming to terms with his mother’s death, discovering how time travel can affect the present, and making an earlier decision not to save her, in order to become the Flash.
As well as being a game-changer, the finale had fans everywhere talking about what Season Three would bring – namely, Flashpoint! While it’s possible that the show will Continue reading
The expansion of DC Comics on the small screen continues today as Deadline reports that a new series is in the works over at The CW, planned to spin off of “Arrow” and “The Flash”.

We’ve seen from episode one of The Flash that time travel will be a huge part of the overall story. Those familiar with Barry Allen’s story from the comics have been very happy to see that that element is part of the show. While talking to THR, Grant Gustin (The Flash) shared what we might see toward the end of a very solid first season.
“We are diving deep into the time-travel element and it is going to be wild.”
Tom Cavanagh (Dr. Wells) adds,
“It’s ultimately why I signed on to this job. Not to play a scientist, but to play a time-traveling bandit. In comic books, when you start talking about time travel — if anybody has followed The Flash, then they know Reverse-Flash and The Flash are not just doing this right now in the present day. They have a long history and there’s nothing that we’re not going to pursue when we try to tell the story. We’re trying to tell all of it.”
Gustin concludes with,
“I think it would be fun if it totally changed the show for season two.”
Time travel and the butterfly effect have been shown to have a huge ripple effect in the Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox animated movie storyline. Flipping the whole show upside down to pull in elements of that story would be crazy and fun to see.
