Call it Justice League 1.5: Flashpoint will now boast more than half of the members of the Justice League, with Batman joining Wonder Woman and Cyborg in a feature appearance in the reworked solo Flash film.

With the Dark Knight’s inclusion in the adaptation of the massive crossover event that rebooted the DC Comics, it adds to chatter that Flashpoint could usher in a new era for the DC Extended Universe. That is, if Warner Bros. is still planning to move ahead with its potential universe-rebooting film after Justice League‘s disappointing opening weekend.

Flashpoint Batman

Ezra Miller is bringing the Flash to the DCEU in Justice League, and the actor is already looking toward the future for his character, specifically the in-development Flashpoint film. When pressed for casting recommendations, Miller confirmed he’d be more than happy to have The Walking Dead‘s Jeffrey Dean Morgan join the Flashpoint cast as Batman. Or rather, an alternate universe Batman.

Flashpoint movie

The DCEU has hit a few speed bumps on its journey to forge a cinematic universe. The DC superhero film saga finally seemed to stabilize with Wonder Woman, and now Justice League hopes to keep it alive. The future of DC’s superheroes, however, is tied directly into Justice League‘s success.

Case in point: some news making the rounds suggests that Flashpoint, the standalone movie focused on Ezra Miller’s The Flash, will live or die based on how well Justice League performs. While this news may disappoint some, it shows a wise sense of caution on the part of Warner Bros., who may have learned from previous mistakes that a more organic cinematic universe is more rewarding.

Justice League - Flashpoint Movie

Update: Buried in a Deadline article about actress Gal Gadot being cast in a film called Deeper, the outlet says Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Wonder Woman 2, “the Justice League films and the spinoff for The Flash.” Our original article from August 6, 2017 follows.

During the Warner Bros. Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con, a surprising reveal came when referencing the first solo feature film for The Flash in the DC Extended Universe. The title of the movie, scheduled for release in 2020, was named as Flashpoint in a flash series of moving title cards that unfurled before the DC Comics part of the Warner Bros. panel began.

The reveal of Flashpoint as a title in development was a huge deal, mostly because that story arc has a massive impact on the DC Comics universe. The storyline imagines a DC Comics universe where Barry Allen (who will be played by Ezra Miller) didn’t get his speedster powers and never became The Flash, which also ends up effecting the rest of the members of Justice League, and if a new rumor is to be believed, we’ll get to see how that impacts at least one of those superheroes in the Flashpoint movie.

Netflix is getting a lot of competition of late, whether from Hulu‘s huge deal with Criterion or Amazon‘s new streaming service through Amazon Prime and a planned streaming offering from Redbox. At the same time, some content owners are getting more prickly when it comes to negotiating deals to stream content online. In short, the digital age of distribution is taking a couple steps forward and everyone wants their share.

So every new content deal is a good thing for any given company on the playing field. That said, here’s a new Netflix deal that might not do huge numbers, but could be a boon for fans: the company has signed a new two-year non-exclusive deal with CBS to stream the company’s library content, including The Twilight Zone, Twin Peaks and the various incarnations of Star Trek.
