The Flash Movie Rumored To Feature An Aquaman Vs. Wonder Woman Fight

I love screwed-up parallel Earth superhero universes. The Injustice DC universe gives us some really twisted takes on DC characters, Marvel’s ‘Old Man Logan’ universe showed us what would happen if the supervillains won and then there’s the classic ‘evil’ Earth-3 from the DC silver age.

But one of the coolest is definitely Flashpoint. Introduced in a 2011 crossover series in The Flash comics, it’s a strange reality where Superman is held captive and experimented on, Batman and the Joker are Thomas and Martha Wayne, and there’s a titanic war between Wonder Woman’s Themiscyra and Aquaman’s Atlantis. We kid you not.

The upcoming solo Flash movie is strongly rumored to loosely adapt this story and while director Andy Muschietti has said his version will be a “different version of Flashpoint than you’re expecting,” it seems that DC would like to at least include the Wonder Woman vs.

Main Villain For The Flash Movie Has Reportedly Been Revealed

We’ve been waiting a long time for The Flash starring Ezra Miller. A revolving door of directors have come and gone from the project over the years, though it seems to finally be on track now that It’s Andy Muschietti is attached to helm. Due to the various filmmakers that have been involved, a lot of conflicting story details have been discussed over time, but We Got This Covered can now confirm exactly who the main villain of the film will be.

Flash fans won’t be surprised to hear that we’ve been told by our sources – the same ones who said Taskmaster would be the primary antagonist in Black Widow and that Kevin Conroy was playing Kingdom Come Batman in “Crisis,” both of which turned out to be true – that Reverse-Flash is the current pick to serve as Barry Allen’s nemesis in his first solo movie.

‘Superman & Lois’ Casts Couple’s Sons As Jordan Elsass & Alexander Garfin Join the CW Series

  • Deadline
‘Superman & Lois’ Casts Couple’s Sons As Jordan Elsass & Alexander Garfin Join the CW Series
Exclusive: Meet Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s offspring. Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin will co-star opposite Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch in Superman & Lois, the CW’s straight-to-series drama about the iconic DC couple.

Elsass and Garfin will play Clark/Superman (Hoechlin) and Lois’ (Tulloch) teenage sons, Jonathan and Jordan, who are believed to be twins.

Elsass’ Jonathan is clean-cut, modest and kind-hearted, with an aw-shucks attitude that somehow doesn’t seem dated. Garfin’s Jordan is wildly intelligent, but his mercurial temperament and social anxiety limits his interactions with people, and consequently, Jordan prefers to spend most of his free time alone, playing video games.

Written by Helbing, based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman & Lois revolves around superhero Superman and journalist Lois as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.

How Crisis On Infinite Earths Has Changed The Flash

The Flash returned for its midseason premiere last night, which not only kicked off the second half of season 6 but also marked the first episode of the show since “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” The crossover event concluded with the whole of reality being rebooted, with the Arrowverse heroes now living on the reformatted Earth-Prime instead of the old Earth-1.

Previous episodes of Supergirl, Batwoman, Arrow and Black Lightning have demonstrated the major changes this rewrite had on their characters and settings, but The Flash‘s midseason premiere established that things are pretty much the same over in Central City post-“Crisis.” Maybe it’s because the show has already tackled the effects of a changing timeline a few times before, as with the Flashpoint and Xs arcs, so the writers decided not to retread old ground too much. That said, there is a key way in which “Crisis” has affected things,

The Flash Movie May Feature An Alternate Wonder Woman

Day 723 of reporting on the superhero blockbuster cinematic universe speculation rumor mill. It’s been a long tour. This afternoon’s news concerns Wonder Woman, The Flash and a despatch box.

On the morning of February the 4th, in the year of our Lord twenty hundred and twenty, information was relayed to me via a despatch box – Ok, it was actually We Got This Covered’s sources, but despatch box sounded more exciting – that Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince may make an appearance in Warner Bros.’ upcoming solo movie for the Flash. But it won’t be the Diana Prince you’re familiar with, as it’ll be an alternate version who we’d see on screen if this happens, as we’re hearing that despite dropping the idea initially, they’re now going to be adapting a lot of the “Flashpoint” arc from the comics. Which means the Wonder

Flashpoint Launcher Features Over 36,000 Rescued Flash Games

Matthew Byrd Feb 3, 2020

Miss the days of Flash games? Flashpoint may help you recreate some strange memories.

A new initiative intends to preserve the strange (yet significant) history of Flash games before the medium dies.

Let's go back to a few years ago when Adobe confirmed that they intend to end support for Adobe Flash in 2020 due to a myriad of problems and some helpful technological advancements. For the most part, that announcement was met with acclaim, but some did wonder how this was going to affect years and years worth of browser-based Flash games. How would we play those strange pieces of internet and gaming history once Flash bites the dust. 

Well, a new launcher/fan program known as Flashpoint aims to solve that problem. The launcher allows you to access over 36,000 rescued Flash games via your computer. Considering that it will take about 288Gb to download all of those games from the launcher,

How ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Pulled Off Its Ezra Miller Cameo

How ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Pulled Off Its Ezra Miller Cameo
The “Arrowverse” saved its biggest surprises for the final two hours: TV’s Barry Allen (played by Grant Gustin) met big-screen Barry Allen (played by Ezra Miller).

But that wasn’t all, as the five-hour event concluded with the death of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), whose Green Arrow kicked off the DC franchise on the CW, and the multiverse combined into an Earth Prime.

“We knew from last year, quite frankly, that we were going to merge and create Earth CW,” “Arrowverse” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said. “But Earth Prime sounds better. So all the CW shows will be on the same earth.”

Here, Guggenheim talks with Variety about how the “Arrowverse” brought Miller to the DC/CW universe, killing off Oliver (twice), and rebooting the shows.

There has been a fairly strict separation of the DC film and television world. How were you able to combine the two with Miller’s cameo?

The Flash Movie Is a Twist on Flashpoint That No One Is Expecting Says Director

  • MovieWeb
DC is quietly continuing with its plans for a cinematic universe for their heroes, and The Flash is a crucial part of the puzzle as a founding member of the Justice League and a popular hero in his own right with a hit CW show. Recently, director of the upcoming solo Flash movie Andy Muschietti dropped this hint about the plot while speaking to That Hashtag Show.

[The movie will be a] different version of Flashpoint than you're expecting.

The statement from Andres Muschietti confirms what fans have been saying ever since the film was first announced. Flashpoint is arguably the most famous storyline from Flash comics ever conceived, and it has already been adapted for DC animation and the CW show.

In the comics, Flashpoint is a storyline where the speed force becomes the key to the comic universe's reality becoming heavily altered, and Flash must use his command of the force to reset

Andy Muschietti Says ‘The Flash’ Will Feature “A Different Version” Of The Popular ‘Flashpoint’ Story

Poor Ezra Miller. As Jason Momoa becomes an A-lister thanks to “Aquaman” and Gal Gadot inspires a generation of little girls with “Wonder Woman,” Miller has been on the sidelines trying his best to get “The Flash” up and running. Hell, even Zachary Levi got a “Shazam!” film made (with a spin-off and a sequel on the way)!

‘The Flash’ Director Andy Muschietti Teases a “Different Version” of the ‘Flashpoint’ Storyline

Matt Reeves Reportedly Fighting To Keep The Batman Out Of The Dceu

It may have taken a while, but in recent years, Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe really seems to be finding its groove, with the franchise enjoying critical and commercial acclaim on a more frequent basis than ever before. Some of the faces may have changed both in front and behind of the camera, but there’s no denying that the superhero series is in a much stronger position than it was at the height of Zack Snyder’s tenure.

After the failed Justice League experiment, the studio seemed to take stock of their options and designed to let their franchise expand in a more organic way, instead of desperately rushing to their own event-level team-up movie without a proper amount of build-up. Aquaman and Shazam! highlighted the Dceu’s more lighthearted approach, Wonder Woman 1984 is a virtual guarantee to hit a billion dollars, The Suicide Squad has Guardians of the Galaxy

How Batman Evolved During Tom King's Run

Jim Dandy Dec 18, 2019

Bruce Wayne's adoptive father is the key to Tom King's conclusion to his run on Batman.

This Batman article contains spoilers.

Tom King did the impossible. In a comics industry founded on the bedrock principle that only the appearance of growth should ever be shown, he’s told a massive, three-year, 85-issue story that has Bruce Wayne actually develop as a character.

With Alfred’s death earlier in the final story arc, "City of Bane," many would have expected Bruce to shun his supporting cast and dedicate himself to revenge, leaving Gotham littered with shattered criminals as he pushed his grief through his fists and his enemies’ faces. But that’s not what happened.

We got a chance to talk with King about character growth, how his epic tale developed, and what’s next for Batman, Catwoman, and King himself in the Dcu.

Batman and Catwoman Face Thomas Wayne in Final Tom King Issue

Jim Dandy Dec 16, 2019

Bruce grabs a pint with Kite Man and finishes things with his Flashpoint Dad in Batman #85. Hell yeah.

This Batman article contains spoilers.

We talked to Tom King about his epic Batman run last week, and one of the things that came up was how strong the quiet moments of the run were. Batman, Catwoman, Superman, and Lois Lane on a date at a fair. Bruce Wayne locked in a jury room. The Robins giving Bruce crap about eating his fast food cheeseburger with a knife and fork that he brought from home. This has been a massive story with some amazing action beats, but King's storytelling really shines during those little character beats that he weaves in.

Of course, the action is no slouch, as you can see from Catwoman's web zip into FlashBats' back in the preview pages below. It shouldn't be any surprise that

The Flash: 5 Reasons Wally West Is The Best Flash (& 5 Reasons Barry Allen Is)

For lifelong Flash fans, we have seen many faces take on the mantle of the Scarlet Speedster, but of the many, two are among the most tenured, Barry Allen and Wally West. Barry basically started the Silver age of comics, introducing something we've never seen in comics before, science fiction. And as the man who started it all, in just about every depiction of the hero have we seen Barry star as the Flash.

Wally, who up until Barry's disappearance in Crisis on Infinite Earths was Kid Flash and only took the mantle for about 20 years before being erased into existence from the events of Flashpoint. With both characters bringing something to the legend of the Flash, here are five reasons Barry Allen is the best Flash and five reasons Wally West is.
