‘Flashpoint’ Movie To Be Helmed By Duo Who Wrote ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming, is all set to direct DC’s Flashpoint, as per Variety.

Warner Bros. had earlier decided to start on Flashpoint in early 2018. However, the plan fell apart when Seth Grahame-Smith stepped down as director of the film. Flashpoint has since been stuck in development.

The Warner Bros. soon roped in Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) to helm the project which has actor Ezra Miller reprising his role as Barry Allen/ The Flash.

However, he too exited the project citing creative differences. The film had been without a director for over a year, leading fans to speculate that the project might not take off at all.

Warner Bros. in the process tried getting Matthew Vaughn, Sam Raimi, Robert Zemeckis, and Ben Affleck to direct the movie, but in vain. The announcement of Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein being appointed to helm the film is great news as fans now know that the film will be made.

Earlier, way back in October last year, it was being said that the future of Flashpoint will depend on the commercial success of Justice League. However, it seems like DC plans to move ahead with their plan of getting the film onto the theaters in spite of the lukewarm response their recent film Justice League received.

The solo Flash movie is based on the Flashpoint comic book series, released in 2011, and written by DC Comics chief creative officer and DC Films co-head Geoff Johns.

Flashpoint is scheduled to release in 2020. Apart from Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot is said to reprise her role as Wonder Woman. Ben Affleck will make one final appearance as Batman, while Jeffrey Dean Morgan will once again repeat his role as Thomas Wayne in the film.

Flashpoint – Story
The story narrates the tale of Barry Allen as he travels back in time to stop his arch-nemesis from murdering his mother. While doing so, Barry ends up launching the DC Universe into an alternate reality (Flashpoint). Here, Superman is caught by the government and Atlantis and Themyscira are too busy fighting an apocalyptic war with one another. The most interesting and huge difference here is that Bruce Wayne, instead of his parents, is killed, thereby leaving his father Thomas Wayne, to become Batman.
