The film may still cover the events of the Flashpoint incident.
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,” implying 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.
