In response to sources near WGTC – the identical ones who advised us Ahsoka Tano will make a cameo in season 2 of The Mandalorian and a Inexperienced Lantern present is coming to HBO Max – WB’s upcoming standalone movie centered round the Flash will most definitely be delayed but once more as a way to keep away from competitors with Disney’s hotly anticipated sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel.
The Brie Larson-led follow-up’s new launch date – the results of Disney’s hectic reshuffling of its long-term launch schedule within the wake of the coronavirus pandemic – has now been set precisely one week after that of The Flash, which up till now had been July 1st, 2020. Captain Marvel 2, in the meantime, is ready to be with us on July eighth, 2020.
The launch of the DCEU pic will doubtless be pushed again slightly than moved ahead, too, owing to the truth that principal images – so mentioned stunt coordinator Eunice Huthart in a current interview with ScreenRant – was initially meant to start out on the finish of April however, like many different superhero movies, has been postponed indefinitely as a result of virus. And in line with our sources, WB is afraid of the competitors they’d face from the MCU pic touchdown per week after and so are actually significantly contemplating pushing the date once more.
Whether or not The Flash will likely be a lightweight reboot or a complete overhaul from the character and his world as they had been beforehand established within the 2017 important and industrial blockbuster bust Justice League stays to be seen. However given the success of Todd Phillips’ Joker, a drastic change looks as if the best way to go. Particularly since we’ve heard that the movie’s adapting the “Flashpoint” arc from the comics, which goes to end in plenty of occasions we’ve seen happen within the DCEU being wiped from continuity or altered considerably.
