‘The Flash’ Film Producers Say ‘Flashpoint’ will Restart Everything in the DC Cinematic Universe

DC’s Fandome day two was all about The Flash. More specifically the Ezra Miller starrer due out June 2, 2022 and which will feature Batmans played by both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton. Based on the Flashpoint miniseries, IGN reports, “a virtual Q&A was held with Flash movie director Andy Muschietti, producer Barbara Muschietti, and star Ezra Miller. During the session it was revealed that the film will ‘restart’ the DCEU in a way similar to how the J.J. Abrams Star Trek films rebooted that franchise without erasing what came before it.”

Producer Barbara Muschietti added that Barry Allen will serve as the link between timelines and the extensive cast of DC characters set to be featured.

“Flash is the superhero of this film because he is the bridge between all of these characters and timelines. And, in a way, it restarts everything and doesn’t forget anything.”

“Our movie Flash is based on Flashpoint but it’s not going to be exactly like Flashpoint, Andy Muschietti said. “Our movie is inspired by the original comic book saga. So you’re going to find a lot of surprises and new events, and a lot of thrilling things that are not in the comic book.”
