The Flash Movie Loses Flashpoint Title, Still Might Adapt Comic Storyline

It seems Warner Bros. and DC Films’ upcoming Flash adventure may not be titled Flashpoint after all. It was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con 2017 event that the movie would be titled as Flashpoint, but now things seem to be changing again, at least according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.

The THR writer Borys Kit mentioned about The Flash at the end of his report while discussing writer Dan Mazeau’s upcoming project. The report stated that Mazeau worked on the Warner Bros.’ Flash movie project when it was titled Flashpoint. The past-tense phrasing used for the film’s title immediately caught everybody’s attention.

In no time, Kit took to Twitter to comment on the speculation surrounding his line about Flashpoint. He clarified his remarks about The Flash movie by stating that the upcoming film will no longer be called Flashpoint, but, it doesn’t necessarily mean that WB is dropping the idea of adapting the comic storyline altogether.

I didn’t say they weren’t adapting Flashpoint,” Kit wrote in the tweet. “All I said was that it wouldn’t be titled Flashpoint. But maybe I’ve said too much.”

The film studio originally hired Seth Grahame-Smith to direct the Flash film but he left the project citing creative differences with the studio. Rick Famuyiwa was brought in as a replacement, but he too left for the same reasons shortly after.

Back in January this year, it was announced that Spider-Man: Homecoming writers, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, were in talks to direct Flashpoint, with a new script from Joby Harold. The deal has reportedly been finalized. John Francis Daley confirmed the news with a tweet “It’s happening!” along with a GIF of The Flash running.

The Flash solo film will feature Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Billy Crudup as Henry Allena, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. The movie is expected to hit theaters in 2020.
