Even before Warner Bros. Pictures had launched the DCEU in 2013, fans of all ages have already enjoyed a varied selection of live-action DC films throughout the years, spanning from 1966’s Adam West-led Batman film, to 1982’s Wes Craven-directed Swamp Thing, and up until Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy.
That’s why, it isn’t difficult to speculate about the probability that Warner Bros. wouldn’t pass up the opportunity of utilizing other iconic characters from the DC film library, especially when The Flash producers have been very vocal about the movie’s role in restarting the DCEU’s continuity that would allow various character iterations to collide.
Warner Bros. first revealed that their Flash film would be inspired by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert’s Flashpoint comic as early as 2017. The studio even went so far as to change the movie’s title to Flashpoint. But following last month’s announcement of the film’s 2022 release date, it doesn’t sound like this is still the case.
It’s probably for the best that the filmmakers are going to make changes to Johns and Kubert’s original Flashpoint arc. After all, the story has already been brought to life in animated form and in the Arrowverse. In 2013, Warner Home Video released Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. A few years later, The CW’s The Flash aired its own version of the story during the show’s third season. With this, it makes sense that Warner Bros.’ film division would want to make something that stands out from prior adaptations. Plus, the timeline tampering could also be used a means of fixing continuity issues within the DCEU.
Set to be directed by IT‘s Andy Muschietti, the Ezra Miller-led Flash movie is now scheduled to be released on July 1, 2022. Miller first portrayed the scarlet speedster in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
