I’m sure it will be.
I think the main problem with him in JL was that they didn’t really know what to do with him outside of be a comedic relief.

I think it’s safe to assume that the movie will have a lot of Comedy but I’d bet that it’ll be better written than what we saw in JL too.

It would be nice to know which books the Goldstein and Daley are looking at for inspiration.

Rumor from DCEU Leaks, which has been hit or miss when it comes to scoops. So obviously take this all with a pinch of salt:

Quote:
Warner put FLASHPOINT on the backburner to focus on standalone movies, but it might still happen in the future.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are currently writing a new draft, which is said to be "very comedic" and with lower stakes, so no time travel, alternate realities, end of the world, etc.
The Rogues are slated to be the villains. Right now the line-up is Captain Cold, Mirror Master and Weather Wizard, but that's subject to change.
Jay Garrick will be featured in a "mentor role". No word on whether he'll be a speedster in it.
Kiersey Clemons and Billy Crudup still set to appear alongside Ezra Miller. Although they're not casting phase yet, WB reportedly wants an A-lister for Jay Garrick (think Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise), while Daley & Goldstein are looking at actors with dramatic and comedic chops for the Rogues.
Channing Tatum is a favorite for Captain Cold, and he's been on WB's radar ever since Phil Lord & Chris Miller were involved with the project, but there have been no formal talks.
WB eyeing 2020 release date. Strong possibility of it being released in November/December like AQUAMAN and WONDER WOMAN 2.
Most of that honestly sounds like guess work, but the idea of Garrick as a mentor is intriguing.

Yeah, it makes not really saying much sound like they're saying a lot. Most of that seems to be what many people had guessed/surmised anyway.

So not Flashpoint then. I'm starting to cool towards this project again.

I often try not to get ahead of myself with these kinds of things, but I don't think it's getting ahead of myself to say there's no way in hell Flashpoint happens at this point in time. As cool as it might be to see some of that stuff brought to life, it just doesn't make sense right now.

I absolutely agree it makes no sense to do Flashpoint now after the poor reception of Justice League (still can't believe I'm having to say that ).

I was just saying...

and

were kinda conflicting. I probably could have phrased it better.

Agreed.

I definitely want an origin Flash movie as I didn't watch his TV shows. I hope they just call it "The Flash".

All of this sounds very intriguing, and I kinda' hope Jay is a Speedster in this (although I'd kinda' have to ask where he's been up until now; surely Bruce (or by extension, Luthor) would have something on him.

I don't quite see how this would be an origin storyline though; presumably if Barry was to be tutored, he'd not be the fool he appears to be in JL, so this solo outing would surely take place after the events of JL?

In any case, the Rogues as the villain(s) make complete sense, though I'm eager for a Thawne cameo (as stated before). I really don't get the fascination with Tom Cruise though; he hasn't done a good movie in years, and I'd very much like him to stay removed from the superhero genres; no Avengers, no Justice League, nothing. Keep Cruise away from this stuff. He's just a big name that'll add nothing to performance. There's so many other actors they can cast as Jay Garrick.

Regarding the films (and assuming Trilogy treatment)

The Scarlet Speedster (Film #1)
The Flash (Film #2)
The Fastest Man Alive (Film #3)

Flashpoint would be something ... different; similarly to Civil War cause of the likely ensemble.

Ditto on Cruise. Nothing against him personally (his personal beliefs are just that - personal, he seems to have plenty of time for his fans) but he is one of those actors who I cannot stand watching - especially in action stuff.

I'm great. How are you dude??

I was heartbroken after JL so I took a sabbatical for a month or so and I had stopped posting frequently in the DC threads ever since. But I'm starting to get back in the game. You'll see a lot more of me in the AQM, Shazam & WW84 threads. Once a DC loonie, always a DC loonie.

On behalf of 99% of the DC loonies - welcome back

Given the plot of Game Night, I wonder if there will be some Back to the Future Part II style time travel in The Flash.
Barry going back in time to same place over and over and having to watch out for his past selves.
