Flashpoint: 10 Major New Details You Need To Know About The Flash Movie
10. The Atlantis/Themyscira War Won't Come Into Play
In the Flashpoint comic book, Barry Allen inadvertently creates a timeline where Aquaman and Wonder Woman are at war. They've laid waste to the Earth while fighting for their respective nations (Atlantic and Themyscira), but it doesn't appear as if the stakes will be quite as high on the big screen.
According to Heroic Hollywood, there are no plans for any of that to come into play in The Flash movie, so that potentially debunks previous reports of cameos from Jason Momoa's Aquaman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. Now, it's certainly possible they were once going to play very different versions of themselves, but with so many creative changes behind the scenes, it likely fell by the wayside.
From a common sense perspective, this will save Warner Bros. a lot of money as they won't need to enlist Jason Momoa and Gal Gadot, or spend big money on Independence Day-style destructive visuals. Some comic book fans will be disappointed, but if this means The Flash will deliver a more focused, personal story revolving around the Scarlet Speedster, that really won't be the worst thing in the world.
