Warner Bros. is moving forward with their DC reboot. Flashpoint will serve as the movie to get everything in order for the studio.
Now the studio has announced John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are directing The Flash movie. News broke in January that the Horrible Bosses and Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters had entered negotiations to direct Flashpoint for Warner Bros
This film has been in the works at Warner Bros. for some time now, with the intention for Justice League to introduce audiences to Ezra Miller’s Flash character, followed by his solo movie.
John Francis Daley posted a Flash gif with a simple caption that reads, “It’s happening!”
Barry Allen has to go back in time to stop the murder of his mother, which results in a completely different universe where there is no Justice League and Bruce Wayne is dead while his parents are alive. Thomas Wayne ends up as Batman while Martha Wayne later turns into the Joker. Wonder Woman is at war with Aquaman and Superman is a weapon of the government.
