While the box office underperformance of Justice League has raised some questions about the future of the DC Extended Universe, recent reports have suggested that Warner Bros. remains keen on moving forward with its Flashpoint movie.
For those unfamiliar with Flashpoint, the original comic book storyline sees a powerless Barry Allen waking in a vastly different DC universe – one where Wonder Woman and the Amazons are at war with Aquaman and the Atlanteans, Kal-El never became Superman, and Thomas Wayne has taken on the mantle of the Batman following the death of Bruce Wayne as a child (an event which also results in Martha Wayne becoming The Joker).
We have of course already seen Thomas and Martha Wayne in the DCEU, with The Walking Dead co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan portraying the characters in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Morgan in particular has already expressed his interest in returning for Flashpoint.
Well, he’s been at it again this week, stating at Walker Stalker Con in New Jersey this past weekend that “There’s a role in the DC universe I’ve got my eye on”, while artist BossLogic has shared a couple of pieces of fan art imagining Morgan and Cohan as Batman and The Joker. Take a look here…

As yet, we know nothing about Warner’s plans for Flashpoint, save for the fact that Ezra Miller will reprise his Justice League role as Barry Allen, while reports are suggesting that Gal Gadot will appear as Wonder Woman and the movie could also mark Ben Affleck’s final outing as The Dark Knight.
Let us know in the comments below what you’re hoping to see from Flashpoint, and if you want Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan as Batman and The Joker…
