Warner Bros has reportedly put off their plans to go ahead with the filming of Flashpoint until the release of Justice League and the audiences response to the film and its characters.
WB is busy trying to get Justice League (fifth film in this universe) to hit the theaters before they make their next move with other titles, which also includes Flashpoint. It is being rumored that Justice League will serve as a true expansion to DC movie universe, and so how well the film does at the box office will decide the future of the franchise.
Variety reporter Justin Kroll, who was part of Meet the Movie Press discussion this week, said that he had heard that the WB’s are going slow in their search for a director for Flashpoint.
During the discussion around the 28-minute mark, Kroll revealed an inside information about how WB has decided to step back and wait to see how Justice League performs at the box office before going ahead with multiple films a year.
This, if it is true, is an intelligent decision by WB considering that Flashpoint will include many Justice League characters. Now, if the audience do not like the characters in the expected manner, it makes no sense to have another film made on similar lines.
The studio is obviously in no hurry as far as Flashpoint is concerned since they have Shazam, Wonder Woman 2, and Suicide Squad 2, all set to go into production in the year 2018.
Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder will release in theaters on November 17, 2017. The star-cast includes Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
