DC-Comics-logo-150

Comic Book Club website reports that DC Comics is working on animated movie featuring its Flashpoint miniseries. Voice actor Kevin Conroy let it slip during an interview that he was working on the project.

“I am recording a new animated movie that features The Flash. It’s more about the Flash, but Batman is in it as well. It’s a Flash… Flashpoint! Flashpoint? I think it’s Flashpoint,” he said.

Flashpoint was written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Andy Kubert, but the plot spilled over into other DC titles. The comic is set in a world where history has been altered, with only the Flash and Booster Gold realizing something is amiss. A total of 16 three-issue miniseries and several one-shots tied in with the title were published May thru September of 2011.

Warner Bros. Animation’s recent DC Comic movies include Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, Batman: Year One and Justice League: Doom. Upcoming releases are Superman vs The Elite (June 12) and The Dark Knight Returns [No release date has been announced].

    So, are they going to relaunch all of the 90′s cartoons? And reboot all of the currently running series with major changes? Like maybe instead of “Aqualad” leading the “Young Justice” team, it’s really Tim Drake as Robin, Con-El as Superboy (fresh from the 90′s), and Bart Allen as Impulse?
    Or, Are they going to say it’s Flashpoint and put in some different storyline, that to someone who hasn’t touched a comic book in decades, looks feasibly like something that could be called Flashpoint?
