The journey of the first-ever solo Flash film may just be as interesting as the storyline it is adapting, but the wait is nearly over. People were treated to bits of news during last month’s DC FanDome, a promising sign things were finally moving forward. This week, the event returns and the crew behind the superhero flick came back to answer some intriguing fan questions.
After the film’s director Andy Muschietti confirmed Flashpoint Paradox directly inspired the plot, producer Barbara Muschietti went on the tease how the antics of our lead hero affects the DCEU. She adds that Barry Allen serves as the link between timelines and the extensive cast of DC characters featured.
“Flash is the superhero of this film because he is the bridge between all of these characters and timelines. And, in a way, it restarts everything and doesn’t forget anything.”
Her final words are purposely vague but it’s clear that whatever effect Flashpoint has on the DCEU, they will be honoring what’s come before it. It’s not a stretch to assume that the film will usher out Ben Affleck’s Batman in a meaningful way, leading the way for Michael Keaton to take over in a mentor role.
It was previously revealed during the summer that the Amazon and Atlantean War, present in the comic storyline, was not going to be featured in the Flash solo film. Along with the confirmation that Thomas Wayne’s role has been replaced with Michael Keaton’s Batman, this further cements how loose their interpretation will be. A recent rumor claims that the film will not utilize Reverse-Flash as the main villain, but that remains to be confirmed.
