Originally announced back in 2014, The Flash solo movie went through several circles of production hell, but with the production wrapped now, the movie is set to see the light of the day in November next year.
Although it was known that the movie will adapt the famous comic book storyline Flashpoint, it was also revealed that the movie will present the idea of Flashpoint in a different way. Barry will still try to go back in time to save his mother, but the consequences will be very different, although definitely not easier than they were in the comic book.
According to Heroic Hollywood, here’s what the director Andy Muschietti had to say about Barry’s journey:
“Mainly the emotional aspects of the story were very compelling to me. Obviously, it’s a superhero movie, it’s a big spectacle adventure, but what really brought me into it was the emotional power of it. There’s an emotional message in the story, it’s also a time-traveling story which is always very attractive to me. Time travel has something that is inherently compelling in general, but this one is very special because it’s a very intimate conflict. It’s about a boy who is looking for his mother, and that’s what was so attractive to me, that emotional drive.”
Instead of Barry’s father as Batman and mother as The Joker and evil Wonder Woman, the movie’s version of Flashpoint will feature Michael Keaton’s Batman, Ben Affleck’s Batman, and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in her DCEU debut.
Directed by Andy Muschietti and starring Ezra Miller in a titular role, The Flash is set to be released on November 4, 2022.
