There’s a lot of weird stuff going on with the upcoming solo outing for The Flash. It’s been through approximately 70,000 directors at this point, and we’re not exactly sure what it will be about. Or are we? During this summer’s Comic Con, Warner Bros. might have tipped their hand in a DCEU sizzle reel: the title for the Flash movie, until now just referred to as The Flash, shows up as “Flashpoint,” a reference to a game-changing comic crossover from 2011 that introduced a sinister alternate universe where the Justice League ends up battling each other.
Here in my home of New York, Wonder Woman still has multiple daily showtimes at multiple theaters around town, nearly two and a half months after its theatrical debut. And just yesterday, Warner Bros. announced that they would begin the film’s home-video rollout on August 29 with a Digital HD streaming option before releasing the Blu-ray and DVD on September 19. With theatrical screenings scheduled to continue until at least a week from today, that leaves an eleven-day window during which fans will have to live in a world where they can’t readily watch Wonder Woman at their leisure. It will be a brief dark age, but the specifics of the release suggest that devotees will find the wait worth it.
