    Take with a lump of salt but rumor is the script is done and approved after a lot drafts and rewrites. Described as "a perfect coming of age story regarding a young man trying to control his power". It was "heavily" influenced by a specific comic story and given an interesting nickname.

    "A perfect coming of age story regarding a young man trying to control his power." Are we stalking about The Flash or Spider-Man: Homecoming :p?

    Kind of curious what comic story they're going for...there isn't really a "Flash: Year One" for them to work from :ack:.

    Do they mean "nickname" as in production name or "nickname" as in a subtitle? The only nicknames that I could see working are "The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive" or "The Flash: Scarlet Speedster" :).

    Didn't they do the original story treatment? It all comes full circle :p.

    Wow, that seems like a questionable choice for a first-ever, big-screen Flash movie--unless the producers want to shake up the current shared continuity.

    I know some people are speculating that this could lead to that rumored Batman re-casting.

    So...instead of getting an actual Flash solo movie, we're getting yet another adaption of Flashpoint :confused:?

    Well, at least they're finally getting that storyline over with so they can do different stuff with Barry going forward...

    I would not be surprised if they're pushing this in order to facilitate some changes to the current continuity and do a physical "Rebirth" of sorts for the DCEU.

    Almost makes you think they planned this in the original casting :p.

    Though Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Flashpoint Batman would be pretty fun :cool:.

    Well, I think it was more the Snyder's casting director pets like him and Crudup.

    I hope to dear god doing Flashpoint does in fact mean "rebooting" the shared DCU. Of course we all know they're doing Flashpoint because, you guessed it, BATMAN is in the story.

    I know I shouldn't get too excited for the possibility of this Flash movie being a "reboot", but I think there is a chance. General audiences can handle and understand a potential universe reboot of this magnitude (X-Men Days Of Future Past and the X-Men franchise going forward).

    I'm curious to see what kind of role she might have in Flashpoint given Iris wasn't that major a factor in the original story and the animated adaption, though she was more integral in the TV version.

    A rumor started by Forbes claims that Wonder Woman may appear in Flashpoint.

    Normally I'd recommend being cautious in believing the rumor, but...it seems to me that it's less of a rumor than an easy guess (if true). Wonder Woman had a big role in the original comic, so it would make sense.

    All of the current movie Justice League had a role in the original Flashpoint storyline so it might be reasonable to expect they'll all appear in the movie in similar roles, minus Ben Affleck's Batman (unless they recreate the ending) :).

    I wonder if Abin Sur will show up...

    Well, Chris Pine said he "might" return for WW2. Flashpoint just needs to explain it really.

    I'm kind of curious if one of the previously scheduled 2020 movies will be moved since two more movies were added to 2020. When WB didn't confirm Cyborg as one of the DCEU movies in development at Comic-Con last month (alongside a few other movies), I thought that implied the movie is on the back-burner. Unless they release four movies in 2020, I guess Cyborg (or Green Lantern Corps) will be moved.

    I am hoping the Flashpoint movie manages to include a cameo from Grant Gustin's Flash. It would be the perfect chance for Ezra Miller and Grant Gustin's Flashes to give each other a head nod or something. The Flash show has already shown time travel and surely so will this movie. If it doesn't happen, that's fine, but it would be really fun and prove the multiverse concept of the Arrowverse and DCEU co-existing.
