I was just using that as an example. I donít think Deathstroke needs a film just focusing on him though. I still would prefer someone else as a villain in a Batman film but if they were to use him as a villain in a Batman film then thatís different.

For the record, I've always preferred DC comics and animation over Marvel which is why I am so harsh on WB. The DCU would be, and should be, amazing in the right hands.
Iím the exact same way. I like DC more in general as a company in terms of comics and animation. Hell Iíve liked a good majority of their films before the DCEU. People donít seem to grasp the concept that you can like a company but think theyíre making shitty decisions which DC has been largely doing with these films. The writing has been on the wall the entire time and itís got nothing to do with being a hater or whatever. I donít want to see DC fail. Iím the exact opposite Iíd love to see something thatís equivalent or at least close in quality to the MCU. It just hasnít been happening.

I assume Miller as The Flash will remain and Gadot as Wonder Woman isnít going anywhere. I mean is the purpose of this film just to be that Affleck needs to be written out? I just donít know how well this will go over.
Yeah, I don't want them to start using time travel and parallel universes and shit like that to start rebooting. That shit gets old in the comics, and it's just going to confuse the audiences. Especially if you're going to use a fucking Flash movie to reboot Batman.

Make good films with them and then maybe if those are successful do these offshoots. In my opinion itís just a waste of resources trying to do films out of smaller name characters when your biggest names arenít drawing at the box office.
The problem is they refuse to do any real world-building.

They're just fumbling around in the dark, sitting around with their thumbs up their asses waiting to see "what audiences respond to." They're moving so slowly because of the wait and see approach that they barely have anything in active production from one film to the next.

There's just no vision behind it.

Oh, you liked Deathstroke's cameo in Justice League? Well, we'll put everything else on the backburner and make a Deathstroke movie.

Look, the MCU is a success because they've been carefully planning and building the thing since Iron Man was a hit. DC is just dropping shit into their universe left and right. How the hell is Suicide Squad your third universe movie? You've barely established your heroes, and now you're doing a villain team-up? The Joker has already killed Robin and we don't get to see it? You introduce the Joker in SS without Batman to play off of?

Wonder Woman was a monster success, and that's the only movie they've gotten 99% right. They need to learn what made that work, and start applying it to their upcoming slate.

And Jeffrey Dean Morgan commented from some Walker Stalker Con (seriously, how many Cons are out there?) and he said "There’s a role in the DC Universe I’ve got my eye on." Would love to see him as Batman.

Hopefully, WB/DC do not fuck this up.

If I were WB, I would reboot everything and get an entirely new cast.

‘Flash’ Standalone Film Taps Directors John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein (EXCLUSIVE)
By Justin Kroll @krolljvar

“Vacation” helmers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are in negotiations to direct “Flashpoint,” the Flash’s standalone movie starring Ezra Miller.

Warner Bros. had no comment.

The studio had initially courted Ben Affleck to return to the director’s chair, but he passed on the gig. By tapping Daley and Goldstein, the studio seems to eye a comedic tone for the film, given the duo’s directing background on movies like “Vacation” and the upcoming “Game Night,” starring Jason Bateman.

The two are no strangers to the comic-book world, having penned the script to the smash hit “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which they were also on the shortlist to direct.

“Flashpoint” had been on hold since director Rick Famuyiwa stepped away from the project. While looking for his replacement, the studio decided to take the script in a different direction. Joby Harold has turned in a new draft after a page-one rewrite.

Executives took their time in finding a new helmer because Miller, who plays the speedy superhero, is busy getting ready to shoot “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” the second installment in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise.

This comes as Warner Bros. is reshuffling the DC Universe with New Line exec Walter Hamada recently promoted to oversee its comic book movies. The studio also recently tapped Michael De Luca as a producer on the “Suicide Squad” sequel.

Daley and Goldstein are repped by UTA and Fourth Wall Management.

A bit mixed on this one. On the one hand, they seemed to have done a good job on the Spider-Man: Homecoming script (personally, I wasn't as enthralled with the movie, but still found it entertaining) but on the other they did direct Vacation... Nothing needs to be said beyond that.

Their script for Spider-Man: Homecoming (which I loved) was massively rewritten by four other screenwriters. Vacation speaks for itself.

This is from last weeek but this may not be titled Flashpoint anymore. Sounds like the film may still incorporate elements from the story but wonít be an adaptation. Personally I feel like this idea should be scrapped and they should just go with a more basic story. Have Barry start his new job and investigate his motherís death and clear his fatherís name.
The Flash Movie Reportedly Won't Be Titled Flashpoint

The film may still cover the events of the Flashpoint incident.

Brian BarnettApr, 03 2018
Warner Bros.' upcoming Flash movie starring Ezra Miller reportedly won't be titled Flashpoint.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer Dan Mazeau worked on the project "when it was titled Flashpoint," which suggests the movie's title is now something else.

What the film will be called now is anybody's guess, though it may still cover the events of the Flashpoint incident. On Twitter, THR reporter Borys Kit clarified his statement from the aforementioned article, saying, "I didn't say they weren't adapting Flashpoint. All I said was that it wouldn't be titled Flashpoint. But maybe I've said too much."

It was also announced today that Mazeau will write the film adaptation of Armada, the second novel of Ready Player One author Earnest Cline. Armada follows the story of a young video game champion who discovers the game he's mastered was created to recruit pilots to stop an alien invasion.

For more on The Flash, check out IGN's explanation of Flashpoint from the comics. Additionally, The CW television series just got picked up for another season, and the current season finale's air date has been announced.

Ah I misread that part. I think I heard someplace else that it may not actually be Flashpoint though.

Well.. my excitement for this just dropped. In other news, the new Suicide Squad DCAU film was pretty good. At least DC gets animated films.

You must be watching different animated films than I am. Their non "Nu-52" titles are fine, but otherwise...

‘Dredd’s Mark Digby Hired As The New Production Designer For ‘The Flash’ Movie

Today, we revealed that production designer Beth Mickle (Drive, The Duce) had opted to exit the Flash movie to instead work on Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.3 and as a follow up we have learned who will replace her.

Omega Underground has learned The Flash will now see Mark Digby (Slumdog Millionare) production design for the upcoming DC Comics film.

Mark might not automatically sound familiar but the production designer has worked closely with Alex Garland on films such as Dredd, Ex Machina, and Annihilation. He recently worked on HBO’s Fahenheit 451 starting Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon which filmed in Toronto.

Also, in an interview, Kiersey Clemons has said she is still playing Iris West.
