I think it is because of the backlash of JL

I think that was the intention, to make Flash JL 1.5. Even if you subtract the whole "DC reboot aspect"

Using Flashpoint as a way to get more DC characters in the first Flash movie in theory would get more people to watch it than they would a true Flash solo.

Like how Cap Civil War had a huge boxoffice jump from WS.

But seeing how people didn't really show up to see Justice League in the first place, it may not be the best idea.

It's still not a terrible idea to continue the universe, though the "Evil DC Characters" thing may not go over so well (although oddly enough, after years of complaining about the possibility, no one really seemed to bat an eye when they went there with Superman in JL). Maybe they can alter Cyborg, Diana and Arthur into being last ditch/post apocalyptic freedom fighters VS evil tyrants?

I do hope this film focuses on The Flash and his life and its impact on the world he inhabits. I think there's a way to do that using Thawne; it could be cool to streamline the mythos and show Barry possible futures and truths about the past. It would need to be done carefully, though.

IMO this year people showed they want DC standalone stories and they're not ready for a DC team up movie at this stage.

So make Flash a character-driven, fun, family-friendly solo movie, and once they team up for JL2 in 4-5 years time, and if it's received well, they could fast track the Flashpoint movie to change it up and make it interesting.

Btw, Chris Miller said "something's coming" on his twitter, fingers crossed =P

I just don't get why they need Flashpoint to set up other films and drag Ben's drama for another 3 years, like we could see Jake in new Bat trailers while Ben in Flashpoint trailers, man.

I honestly don't want Flashpoint. I really wanted Flash to have a movie for himself.
