By this point, a lot of DC Extended Universe fans are more than a little bit gun-shy. We’ve seen plenty of projects sort of fall to the wayside with little to no warning whatsoever. One such victim in their ever-shifting schedule has been the standalone Flash film.

For the longest time, it was set to be a standard standalone film set in the DCEU, but last year, it was revealed that this movie would be called Flashpoint. Comic book fans recognized the title, and those who have been following the Flash TV show recognized the Season 3 hook as part of something greater. So from then on, we started to refer to the film as Flashpoint.

However, in a recent THR piece regarding the new Ernest Cline film Armada, the following was said:

“Mazeau worked on 2012’s Wrath of the Titans and pens scripts that have their feet in the fanboy world. He worked on the Warner Bros.’ Flash movie project when it was titled Flashpoint.”

Oh, boy. So does this mean that DC Films and Warner Bros. have once again started from square one, and are going back to the drawing board for the film? Not so fast. The author of the piece, Borys Kit, since went onto Twitter to ease our concerns, saying:

“I didn’t say they weren’t adapting Flashpoint. All I said was that it wouldn’t be titled Flashpoint. But maybe I’ve said too much. 😜”

So there you go. Perhaps it’s just a title situation, but it’s hard to believe that when so much has already been changed in the past. Here’s hoping we get something solid from this film in the near future.
