Fans of DC Comics character, Flash, can get excited now as the director has brought new information on the movie.
The Flash director, Andy Muschietti, has confirmed that his film will still be based on the comic that rebooted the DC universe into the “New 52” era. Muschietti said in his interview with The Hashtag Show it would be a “different version of Flashpoint than you’re expecting”
Besides that statement, the director offered no further clues as to what exactly was the story for his film. However, fans of the popular storyline know Flashpoint was the comic that kickstarted the New 52 into the modern era.
The Flashpoint comic had Barry Allen traveling back in time to save his mother which therefore resulted in a new alternate timeline and the world-changing forever. Heroes such as Superman, Batman, Shazam, and Wonder Woman have changed drastically and it is up to Barry to reverse these effects.
The Flashpoint event was also covered by the CW version of The Flash in season 3 and Barry Allen’s choice in that season affected the future in more ways than one.
It is unclear exactly how director Andy Muschetti will cover Flashpoint in his movie or how it will relate to other films such as Matt Reeves’s Batman movie. All we know is that once this Flashpoint film is done we can expect the DCEU to change forever.
How exactly will Flashpoint change the status quo within the DCEU and it’s heroes? We will just have to wait until July 2022 to find out exactly.
But rest assured we can expect big things to happen for the DCEU by the time this movie comes out and big changes as well and it is clear that to DC fans July 2022 can’t come fast enough.
