It’s no secret that DC is working on building a viable shared universe and over the last while we’ve seen Justice League members popping up in each other’s films. Most notably so when Wonder Woman and Aquaman appeared in Batman V Superman: The Dawn Of Justice and when Bruce Wayne (sort of) had an appearance in Wonder Woman’s film.
Now it seems, in keeping with this, Wonder Woman might show up in The Flash movie too. The film, which is yet untitled, will be focused on the Flashpoint Arc which sees The Flash turning back time to rescue a loved one. He kind of messes up reality in the process and it’s to be noted that Wonder Woman is almost non-existent in the entire Flashpoint storyline so it’s still unclear how big a role she’ll have if any at all. It’s likely she might just make a sideline appearance instead of playing any significant part of the story itself.
Flashpoint, however, does give us a chance to see someone else, someone we’ve wanted to see on screen for a long time. An alternate Batman. Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s father is The Batman in Flashpoint and he’s more akin to The Punisher than the Batman we all know. Thomas Wayne became Batman after the death of Bruce and is entirely out for vengeance and merciless retribution on the criminal populous of Gotham. He basically shares none of the restraint and mercy Bruce has as Batman. In the Flashpoint Arc, Batman is truly the stuff of nightmares and I think that’s perhaps the aspect of The Flash movie that I’m the most excited about.
How about you guys? What are you hoping to see?
