Sometimes there are so many rumors it’s hard to keep track of what’s real and what is total bull crap. This rumor comes to us from Deadline who has a good reputation generally, but have been getting some stuff wrong lately: they had said that New Muntants and Deadpool 2 had both wrapped which turned out not to be the case. They also seemed pretty confident Rian Johnson was going to take over Star Wars: Episode IX, which ended up not being true. This latest rumor has to do with the troubled production of The Flash solo movie. At Comic-Con International they revealed the title change to Flashpoint. We don’t know anything else about the movie right now, a lack of director does that, but people are speculating and things like the following in Deadline doesn’t help.
[Gall] Gadot is riding high after starring in Wonder Woman. She will reprise in the Patty Jenkins-directed sequel and DC spinoffs including the Justice League films and the spinoff for The Flash.
In the Flashpoint storyline Wonder Woman is the tyrannical ruler of the Amazons in a war against the Atlanteans. Flashpoint could be the thing that changes the DC universe in major ways like if a rumored actor wanted out of a role for example. Does this mean we’re going to see Wonder Woman as a villain? That could be fun and Gadot could probably pull it off. In fact, she could probably pull it off well enough that half audience will walk out on her side.
