During the San Diego Comic-Con International it was announced that Warner Bros. and DC Films had decided to retool their planned solo movie for The Flash, opting instead to develop an adaptation of the acclaimed Flashpoint comic book storyline.
Since then, we’ve heard that the script is reportedly finished and that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is expected to appear, while several directors have also been linked to the project, including the likes of Robert Zemeckis and Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Well, if a new rumour from Variety’s Justin Kroll on Meet the Movie Press is to be believed, Warner Bros. has now decided to put the brakes on the project for the time being, and the studio is waiting to see how November’s Justice League performs both critically and commercially before giving the go ahead to Flashpoint and other DCEU movies.
Nevertheless, we do know that Shazam is set to begin production February, with Zachary Levi having been announced last week in the title role, while Suicide Squad 2 will also reportedly go into production in March.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
