It was announced on day three of the San Diego Comic Con that The Flash has officially been titled ‘Flashpoint’, based on the 2011 DC comics mini-series with the same name.
The “Flashpoint” comic storyline sees Barry Allen/The Flash (Ezra Miller) travel back in time to avert the murder of his mother, after a fit of emotional rage and doing the one thing he promised he would never do, which could change the course of his life. However, when he returns to the present, his mother is still alive and the world has become a nightmare. Unfortunately for Barry, the Justice League doesn’t exist at this point and Barry must do everything he possibly can to make things right… Or as close as he can get to right.
This won’t be the first time seeing the “Flashpoint” storyline, as it has previously been adapted in to the 2013 animated movie “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox” and vaguely in the second and third season of CW’s television series, The Flash. The extent of how much of the comic storyline the movie will hold is yet to be revealed.
Whilst “Flashpoint” has not yet got a director or premiere date, it is known that the movie will be released some time in 2020.
