It looks like The Flash's solo movie is finally getting off the ground, with production now due to start in early 2019.


Not only that, but it sounds like the DCEU movie will take inspiration from another time travelling adventure as it prepares to tackle the Flashpoint storyline.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie has "abandoned" the more sombre themes it was set to tackle, and is now using Back to the Future as a touchstone.

We mean, if you're going to use a fun time-travelling classic as inspiration, you might as well go for the adventures of Marty McFly.

The movie is set to be directed by Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters John Francis Daly and Jonathan Goldstein, so maybe they'll bring a bit of Marvel magic to the franchise.

As for the storyline, the Flash movie is expected to revolve around the Flashpoint storyline, which sees Barry Allen create an awful alternative world after he goes back in time to try and save his mother's life.

On top of that, the timeline sees Bruce Wayne's now-not-murdered parents becoming Batman and the Joker, while Wonder Woman and Aquaman are tyrannical leaders at war with each other.

Meanwhile, last month it was revealed that Iris West (Kiersey Clemons) will finally get to make her debut in the Flash movie after previously being cut from Justice League.
