Outside of comic fans, does anyone still care about this film?  Ezra was cast as part of the Snyder DCEU, which looks to be dead, if the news after the Snyder cut release is true.  Plus, most people I have spoken to felt his flash was the weakest link in whatever version of the film people have seen.

 

I know this is rumored as the Flashpoint soft reboot, but there have been so many delays, even before Covid. All the bad press surrounding the lead, does not help.  Numerous changes in the creative teams.  Finally, if everything goes 100% smooth from here on out, this movie is at best a 2023 film, and 5 years out from JL.

So you are asking comic book readers on a comic book message board if anyone outside of such comic book readers really care about this film? I think an approach happened like this decades ago, and it didn't end well for the statisticians involved in the study.

And this is not a political point. It is how data is collected to determine the mind of the people in question, and who you ask.

But more seriously, before the release of the Snyder Cut the answer would be a crapshot. Now with the bigger character development fresh in minds due to the film's release, this most probably brings very positive feelings towards a Flash solo film.

How do I know this to be true? Read many of the Snyder Cut reviews and you now notice Cyborg and The Flash receiving extremely positive mentions from people that also noted back in 2017 they really didn't care for these characters. Now, a different story. Even moviegoers noted the drastic difference with use of the character and involvement in the story.

Huge difference in character connection results.

The Flash was f^&*ing sick in ZSJL. It makes me that much more interested in his solo outing.

How that 2016-2017 WB Studios executive team looked at this and didn't pick up on what they had was nuts. And since they were trying to catch up with the MCU they had plenty of business justification at that point.to keep much of this content in and NOT go with just a 2-hour team event film.

So it's now more than three years after the originally announced release date.

When are we expecting to see Flash 2: Electric Boogaloo?

Oh wait...

I didn't think it was very practical for Barry to rescue a few hotdogs before Iris, but I liked when he said we're going to save the world with the power of love. It would have been perfect if they had that song from Back to the future cue in at that moment.

No doubt that the Flash got some much better exposure in the Snyder Cut, a few people I know who have seen it are now more interested to see something more from him. The thing that we can't tell at the moment is whether the solo film has to ignore the events of the Snyder Cut, which would be a real shame as he did so much for the team after doing practically nothing in the 2017 version.

Next year will be a major one for the World of DC on film as WB has planned to release four movies in 2022 starting with The Batman in March, Black Adam in July, The Flash in November, and Aquaman 2 in December, and one of them could tease what audiences will expect from the Justice League on the big screen.

 

Buried in their report, THR notes that "DC is plotting its films and shows to share the same universe" and that their key to getting this across to audiences will be in The Flash movie. This shouldn't come as a huge surprise to DC readers considering the Scarlet Speedster's proclivity for multiverse storylines, but the trade notes that the film "will tackle the multiverse and is said to also lend clarity to the future of the Justice League." They note that not all are multiple Batmen set to appear (Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton have so far been attached) with newcomer Sasha Calle also starring as Supergirl.

 

It's unclear just how this movie will help establish "the future of the Justice League" unless a full blown redo of the concept is being considered. There is precedence for a superhero team featuring heroes from across the multiverse though as Grant Morrison's The Multiversity introduced Justice Incarnate to the DCU. Perhaps WB wants to make a new Justice League movie with heroes from across their live-action multiverse, especially since Robert Pattinson's Batman will seemingly be separate from all of it.

So they are basically doing the multiverse things.  That way everything is legitimized, but at the same time they can redo anything they want.
