New 'Flash' Movie Title Suggests It Could Shake Up the DC Universe

If Wonder Woman suffered a similar fate, there was a very good chance the whole DC shared universe might have been put on hold or scrapped altogether. There's two problems with that: 1) the DCEU movies having freedom to NOT directly tie from one to the next has proven successful with Wonder Woman, and 2) Johns made his name at DC by inspiring creators to tell faithful stories that mattered to them. Warner Bros. unveiled the title today at San Diego Comic-Con, and it's of big significance to fans of the series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros" solo Flash movie will be called "Flashpoint'.

"Flashpoint" was previously adapted as the 2013 animated movie "Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox", and loosely for the second and third season CW's live-action series "The Flash". He doesn't have the power of super speed anymore, and the Justice League doesn't exist.

It's worth pointing out that at this point, The Flash movie is both officially and unofficially without a writer or director, let alone one who would take the job knowing that it won't entail a contained story doing Barry Allen justice, but a universe-altering leap into complicated mythology.

As of right now, the film is still without a director or a release date. The story eseentially sees the Flash going back in time to save his mother from being murdered by the Reverse-Flash.

The decision to adapt "Flashpoint" also reflects the close involvement of DC Entertainment President and CCO Geoff Johns, who since 2016 has served at WB as co-master of the DC Extended Universe film franchise. If it was anyone else, I'd be anxious. As mentioned, the movie now does not have a release date, but the moment that changes you can read all about it right here on Bam Smack Pow.
