Default FLASHPOINT to be the next DCU Animated movie!

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/04/...nimated-movie/

I don't think FLASHPOINT is anywhere near the best Flash story but I do think it was fun and that it would make a fun direct to dvd movie. Pretty cool.

What do you think?

Think they will change the ending though? To make Barry just fix history and not show a change/reboot. Would make sense to change that.

Looking forward to this.

That's great new!

I do think that they will change the story somewhat. Not sure if they will touch on the reboot or not. I tend to think not.
 
There's a Flash section here? Where is it? ;-)

I think with a few tweeks, a 70 minute animated movie could actually be better than the Flashpoint book. I enjoyed it but it did have the typical pacing issues that many of Johns' most recent books have had.

I feel the same way. I think I will enjoy the animated movie more. I'm excited for this.

It isn't quite a Flash animated movie... but it is about as close as you can get.

Right. Just like the book wasn't a Flash event. It was an event that starred the Flash.

Kevin Conroy is also a very big plus.

I wonder who'll they get for Barry.

Yuk.
The Return of Barry Allen would make a far superior animated movie than Flashpoint! It would take a lot less tweaking to make it work too.
