Warner Bros. threw Ezra Miller's standalone Flash movie for a loop today announcing it will now be called Flashpoint - reflecting the events of the comic event by the same name - and could point to a big role for Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Thankfully, he appears to be up for it. The Flashpoint comic series is an alternate reality created as a result of Barry Allen going back in time to save his mother from being killed. While he is successful in saving her, many other things change as a result - including the outcome of the robbery of the Wayne's. In this timeline, Bruce Wayne is killed instead of his parents.
Audiences saw the typical Batman origin in the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opening featuring Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan as Thomas and Martha Wayne. Now, with Flashpoint on the horizon, Morgan has responded and appears ready to take up the mantle.

Following the announcement, Morgan tweeted out his thoughts on the new direction for the film - one that should incorporate him heavily. His tweet includes a photo of both him and Cohan at San Diego Comic-Con for a panel of The Walking Dead. While their smiles and whispers here were likely not actually about their potential involvement in Flashpoint, it is not something neither would be opposed to. Update: Morgan has also shared new artwork on his Instagram.
