This is my bet on what they're going to do. Flashpoint essentially led to a soft reboot in the comics when it happened, this is probably the best bet as it would allow them to keep the successful aspects going without issue (Wonder Woman, perhaps Aquaman, Flash) and reboot Superman/Batman. Maybe get rid of Cyborg.
I doubt theyre going to spend 200million on a film just to soft reboot.
Seems to me like their soft reboot is just to carry on without Batman and Superman.
The report even pretty much says they will shift focus from Superman to Supergirl for now, and that they wont be using Superman for the next few years. And Matt Reeves Batman is likely a younger Batman so not one who will be with the Justice League.
^ So even after this WB is still trying to push a Supergirl movie?
Kind of disappointed that we will never get to see Cavill really take on the role of Superman in a Snyder-less film. He has the makings of a decent one just that the script/directing never really worked out.
Supergirl takes place before Kal became Superman, so they could do a solo SG film and then include her in Superman's place for Flashpoint a year later or so.
Not that I like that, but it's an idea if they're not going to do the smart thing and scrap future films and do a hard reboot, recasting everyone and going with a new DC-verse, even if it means losing Galdot as WW.
Though I do admit, if they brought in Thomas Wayne for Flashpoint as the alternate reality Batman, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is already perfectly cast in that role. Get him on a high calorie, high protein diet hitting the gym with the professional trainers to bulk up muscle and he's set.
And for phucks' sake, cast Mark Strong as Lex Luthor. Good actor and the man is absolutely perfect for the role.
I'm still convinced Jessie Eisenbergisraelgoldmenhebrewstein blew several people for that role and he must be an expect at giving head; as there is no way he nailed the role during casting sessions/readings. No way.
