After the news came out that Warner Bros. and DC Films will likely begin work on Flashpoint and Batgirl once director Patty Jenkins’ begins shooting Wonder Woman 2 later this summer, a lot of information about the speedster movie has already started pouring in.
The Hashtag Show has reportedly revealed some unofficial details about Flashpoint’s production timeline, villains, and supporting heroes that are slated to appear in the film. As per the report, Dr. Arthur Light aka. Doctor Light is going to be Flashpoint’s lead villain. Mick Rory/Heatwave and Leonard Snart/Captain Cold will also complicate things for Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) in the upcoming film.
Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost is expected to play a lead role. It remains unclear whether or not her alter ego will surface in the film. Billy Crudup will reprise his role as Barry’s father, Henry Allen, and Ray Fisher will appear as Cyborg.
The movie will also showcase a flashback to the accident that turned Barry Allen into The Flash, which will portray Eobard Thawne in “an interesting way.” With a whopping budget of over $100 million, the film is slated to enter principal photography by the second half of 2018 possibly at their Leavesden Studio in London.
We would advise our readers to take the information with a grain of salt as nothing yet has been officially confirmed by Warner Bros.
There were reports that the studio has already finalized Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to direct Flashpoint. The fact is that the two still haven’t finalized a deal with the studio, meaning they haven’t started working on the stand-alone Flash film for DC.
“We’re still negotiating,” Daley said at the premiere of their upcoming film Game Night, reported THR. “Deals are in the works right now. Hopefully, it will work out,” he added.
When asked about the reason that’s taking them so long to get started on Flashpoint, Goldstein said, “It’s all about parking spots. If you give in, then you’re all the way out by craft services. You want a better spot than that.”
With Flashpoint scheduled to hit theaters in 2020, we are hoping that the writer duo gets the parking spot situation figured out shortly.
