The Flash star Ezra Miller and DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns have provided an update on the Scarlet Speedster's solo adventure. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Johns and Miller offered a few new clues about the direction of the film, which will adapt the Flashpoint storyline.
Johns explained that the movie will explore uncharted territory. “There’s elements in it that we’re going to be playing into that we couldn’t do anywhere else," he teased. "The scale of it, the Batman story of it all.” Of course, Johns is likely referring to the fact that -- in the Flashpoint timeline created by Barry's decision to go back in time and stop his mother's murder -- Thomas Wayne becomes Batman to avenge his son Bruce's death.
“What fans understand when they hear Flashpoint would be almost like hearing a word like ‘Crisis,’" Miller shared. "We start to understand that our precious DC universe will inevitably be torn asunder to an endless, headache-inducing fabric of multiversality. The DC Hyper-Extended Multiverse, as I plan to call it. Quote me!”
The actor added that, while the movie is still not underway in terms of production, it's in the best shape it's ever been. If Justice League receives a warm welcome and fans show enough demand for Miller's return, Flashpoint will seem more likely than ever. It's rumored that Warner Bros. is waiting to see how well Justice League performs, both financially and critically, before moving forward with multiple films a year. Even so, it was recently revealed that the search for a director for Flashpoint is nearly over.
Opening Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
