Wonder Woman making an appearance in 'Flashpoint'

Wonder Woman will show up in 'Flashpiont'
Warner Bros.
During last month’s San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros revealed that the title of the Flash’s upcoming solo movie is Flashpoint. This has had fans extremely excited for a number of reasons. Flashpoint is essentially a story in the comics where the Flash changes something in his past and completely changes the future of the DC universe. So the consequences of this happening in the live-action DC Extended Universe could be huge.

According to Forbes, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is going to have a role in Flashpoint. This makes total sense, due to the fact that Wonder Woman had a big role to play in the story from the comics. So her having a role in the film is to be expected. How big the role will be in the film, however, is not known. We also don’t know how closely the film adaptation will stick to the source material.

In the comics, Barry Allen — the Flash — runs back in time to save his mother from being murdered. In doing so, he creates an alternate timeline where he never becomes the Flash. The ripple effects spread across the entire DC universe, with Thomas Wayne — Bruce Wayne’s father — being Batman instead of his son. The Walking Dead‘s Jeffrey Dean Morgan has mentioned his interest in playing that role, if it were to ever happen.

The character of Cyborg also plays a key role in the comics, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see his character make an appearance in the film. His solo film is scheduled to debut in the same year as Flashpoint. The script is still currently being written and is almost finished. So we should be hearing some casting news pretty soon.

The next time we’ll be seeing Wonder Woman is in Justice League later this year on November 17. Following that, we’ll see the character in the Wonder Woman sequel sometime in 2019. Flashpoint is currently scheduled to be released in 2020, although the film does not currently have a director. In fact, the project has been having a bit of trouble getting a director to stay onboard for production.But we might be hearing some announcements about that sometime soon.

Warner Bros. Pictures' cinematic universe of DC Comics heroes and villains didn't get off to the best start. Fortunately, after a string of films that fell short of their potential at the box office and received a harsh response from critics and audiences, Wonder Woman came along and made audiences (and superhero movie fans) optimistic again about the studio's "DC Extended Universe."

Some of those hopes were dashed again by the underwhelming debut of Justice League, the movie that all of those early projects had been building toward and the lynchpin of the DCEU. So where does the studio go with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of its cinematic universe from here?

‘Wonder Woman’ goes airborne with giant 300-drone light show
Wonder Woman

You only have to look at the fact that Wonder Woman ditched the grim-and-gritty DC Extended Universe and made a DC movie that was *gasp* good fun for evidence that everyone’s favorite Amazonian princess does things differently. Apparently, the same thing goes for its home release promotion as well, since instead of celebrating the recent movie’s success at an event last week with something conventional like a fireworks display, the powers-that-be decided instead to stage an epic drone light show.

Created using Intel Shooting Star drones, aka the first drones designed specifically for the entertainment light shows, the display involved 300 drones taking to the sky over Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles to throw up a variety of images. These included spelling out various words related to the movie, forming the DC and Wonder Woman logo, and even creating the shimmering outline of Diana of Themyscira herself. The drones used for the display weigh just 330 grams, are made of foam and plastic, and are capable of emitting more than 4 billion color combinations using their embedded LED lights.
