Ezra Miller Reveals The Batman Joke Cut From 'Justice League'

Johns, who has a lead creative role in the DCEU, says of the Flashpoint movie, "There's elements in it that we're going to be playing into that we couldn't do anywhere else", Johns explains.

This early, though, there are already several speculations on how the "Flashpoint" movie will turn out.

Details on the plot are still scarce, but star Ezra Miller seems excited at the prospect, telling EW, "What fans understand when they hear Flashpoint", teases Ezra Miller, "would be nearly like hearing a word like 'Crisis.' We start to understand that our precious DC universe will inevitably be torn asunder to an endless, headache-inducing fabric of multiversality".

While it is said that the fate of the "Flashpoint" movie is dependent on the box-office performance of "Justice League", rumors now claim that the standalone film feature about DC's superhero speedster will feature Batman in the story. It was announced at this past San Diego Comic-Con that Flashpoint will next be tackled as a theatrical movie, but we haven't learned yet how faithful this new version will be to its comic book predecessor.

This is our second indicator that the Flashpoint movie will be a more faithful adaptation of the original story. For example, Gal Gadot has already been rumored to appear as Wonder Woman in this, and a key piece of Flashpoint is that Themyscira and Atlantis are at war. There's a number of other differences both big and small but that's perhaps one of the biggest changes, not only that but Thomas Wayne's Batman is a ruthless, gun toating crime fighter with red eyes in his cowl. It seems DC is waiting to see how Justice League performs to fully ramp up development on it because right now, the movie has no director and seemingly no writers unless Geoff Johns is penning it which would make sense since he wrote the original comic.

Warning: SPOILERS for the original Flashpoint are ahead!

In Flashpoint, when Barry Allen finds himself in a new timeline, Batman is actually Bruce Wayne's father Thomas, who became the Caped Crusader when Bruce was killed as a child. Their first meeting didn't get off to a good start, but once he learned about how Bruce was alive in the main DC timeline, Thomas aided Flash in attempting to set thing back to normal. While there's still no attached director or official release date, we know the film will be based on Flashpoint, which suggests something much broader in scope than a simple origin film.
