DC FANDOME 2: The Flash movie will bridge all DC universes and ‘restart’ everything…

September 13th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ohhhh… more details have come out of the second DC Fandome event about the upcoming Flash movie.

We already know that the Flash movie will feature several heroes from the DC universe, including the confirmed appearance of Micheal Keaton and Ben Affleck as their iterations of Batman – we’re also hearing that we can expect Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill and Jason Momoa reprise their roles as Wonder Woman, Superman and Aquaman and it also looks likely that Ray Fisher’s Cyborg will be there too.

But now we have some more interesting details on the movie.

Producer Barbara Muschietti has provided hints during the Fan Q&As about the Ezra Miller movie that the movie may not only be massive, but could be a real game-changer.

“Well, I want you to go see it, so I’m not going to tell you a lot,” she explained.

“But what I will tell you is that it’s a ride. It’s going to be fun and exciting and there are a lot of DC characters in it. 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.”

This is very interesting indeed as it confirms that, yes, this will likely pull in characters from all over the DC universe – which has me wondering if this will directly lead on from the events of The CW’s Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths event (here) – but it’s the ‘restarts everything’ that our attention here at FTN HQ.

What this means is anyone’s guess. It might mean the DCEU will be changed after the movie. Perhaps Keaton will become the new Batman in that universe. Perhaps they’ll bring Robert Pattinson into the main universe as the main Batman or, just maybe, it just means that it’ll be an adaptation of Flashpoint and, like its comic book counterpart, will see the main universe altered in big and small ways.

Director Andy Muschietti said last month: “This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it presents a story that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations that we’ve seen before are valid.

“It’s inclusive in the sense that it is saying all that you’ve seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”

Whatever it means, we’ll be there opening night for everything, but especially having Affleck and Keaton together.

What say you all?

Will Flash(point) be used to redefine the DCEU as we know it? Or will it be small, subtle, there-for-the-fans changes? Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
