Flashpoint is a story that’s already been adapted from its comic book source material. Most recently, it made up an episode of the Flash CW series, and while it lasted only an episode, it pretty much had effects that reverberated throughout the entire season. However, if there was something that that adaptation was missing, it was the wider DC universe.

This is a problem that the eventual DC Extended Universe Flashpoint adaptation will not have. Speaking with EW, DC Films head Geoff Johns played up the potential of the film, saying:

“There’s elements in it that we’re going to be playing into that we couldn’t do anywhere else. The scale of it, the Batman story of it all.” Note that he doesn’t specify which Batman. The Dark Knight of the Flashpoint”

Those who have read the comic know exactly what he’s talking about: Thomas Wayne. In the comics, Flash wakes up in an alternate reality, and in this reality, Bruce Wayne is killed in that alleyway, and Thomas Wayne takes on the role of the Batman, with Martha becoming the Joker.

It’s great to hear that that will likely be brought into the fold should DC actually get to this story, as planned.

Actor Ezra Miller also hyped up the film, saying:

“What fans understand when they hear Flashpoint would be almost like hearing a word like Crisis. 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!”
