Tacked at the end of Deadline’s article about Gadot negotiating to join Bradley Cooper in the drama Deeper is a mention of Flashpoint, adding credence to an August report that the actress will join Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher in the DC Extended Universe film.
Originally announced as The Flash, the project was retitled in July as Flashpoint, presumably inspired by the 2011 DC Comics crossover in which Barry Allen traveled into the past to prevent his mother’s murder. That altered the timeline and created an alternate reality in which Barry is no longer The Flash, and changed many of the most recognizable heroes and villains across the DC Universe. Wonder Woman played a key role in the story, as she leads her army of Amazons in a war against Atlantis, with mankind caught in the middle.
The film has endured a tumultuous development, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wrote the original story treatment, courted to direct, but ultimately declining. The were succeeded first by writer Seth Grahame-Smith, in what was to be his feature directorial debut, and then by Rick Famuyiwa, who left the project in October 2016. Although numerous filmmakers, from Robert Zemeckis to Sam Raimi, have reportedly been in the running for the gig, Flashpoint still doesn’t have a director.
Flashpoint also stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Originally intended to hit theaters on March 16, 2018, the film has no announced release date.
