The Flash Vs. Galactus


Plans for a Flashpoint movie still seem to be underway, depite the lukewarm reception to Justice League.  While it will be cool to see Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Thomas Wayne suit up as Batman, I think it's still to early to be presenting this story.  Besides, its has darker versions of all the Justice Leaguers - and aren't they trying to get away from the depressing story lines after Zach Snyder's mostly dour trilogy?  At any rate, it has been reported that there has been a big shake up behind the scenes at Warner Brothers as to who controls the DC movie properties, so I don't expect these plans to be set in stone.

How can they be _trying_ to get away from it when DC is still publishing dour story arcs like "Metal" and "Injustice 2?"

Seems to me we, the reading public, are finally getting over-Millerized.

I thought Oblivion was a different character. Sort of a cross between Darkseid and Eternity (as initially drawn in issues of the now-defunct QUASAR).

Ross: Now that the Disney-Fox sale has been announced, please give us "Deadpool Kills Homer Simpson" before the Mouse does.

@Jay Johnson - I'll go one better. Deadpool kills the Simpson universe!

Or even better: Radioactive Man (Chen Lu) vs. Radioactive Man!!

I like the suggestion about the two Radioactive Men meeting....
to Anonymous above, the character pictured is not Oblivion from the Marvel universe. It is Galactus.
Ross, I just keep singing your praises.

If Flashpoint fixes the Flash's terrible movie costume it will be worth it.

What if Barry fixes Flashpoint, goes to the Batcave and finds a different, younger Batman, and discovers That Superman does not kill and there is now color in the universe?

I agree it's early for a "Flashpoint" movie: unlike the comic version, there's little shock value to "upsetting" a continuity that hasn't even been fully established yet. I guess the appeal is that it gives them an excuse to undo various mistakes while claiming they were never mistakes in the first place: it was all just "part of a bigger story" all along.

The real take-away from this is that as often as DC Comics have to push the reboot button to fix their messes, the DC movies have gotten there even faster!

"Faster, better, stronger" (to paraphrase the late, great Oscar Goldman...nee Richard Anderson).

@Jack-El: Yes, obviously. I was just wondering whether or not Ross pictured them as teaming up against the abstract entity called Oblivion!
