I’ve been losing enthusiasm for this film since Justice League came out.
It wasn’t that Ezra Miller’s goofy, unemployed Barry was such a terrible thing.
I could get around that since I had seen a similar version in the unreleased Justice League pilot
However, when they showed that Barry’s story revolved around the Geoff Johns induced origin (Reverse Flash murdering his mother and Framing his father) That’s when I started to pull back.
Two things.
I absolutely despise that origin. Barry doesn’t need a traumatic childhood event to make him pursue a career in science and forensics.

Flashpoint had been done three times by this point… did we really need a fourth?!?

As the years have trudged on, we’ve seen Warner Bros. throw more excrement to the wall just to try and build up hype from this film.
From bringing in Michael Keaton to reprise his version of Batman…
(Admittedly I will watch those scenes when it hits HBO Max just for themselves)
To announcing their would be several iterations of Batman, a Supergirl and Grant Gustin as a special guest… (Hey! I love Grant on the Flash but I don’t need him to show up in another actor’s first outing anymore than I needed John Wesley Shipp to be the 90s Barry or Jay Garrick on the CW!)

I mean, it’s one thing to reference someone else in the Justice League movie in either Wonder Woman or Aquaman… But to have all of these drawing points thrown into the Flash movie, makes it look like the Flash isn’t going to do well without dozens of guest heroes. (It certainly gives the impression that the studio has little or no confidence in the property despite the last eight years of successful Television)

Ezra Miller could have been a virtual saint all this time, and it still wouldn’t have helped this film . The fact that they’re having all of these problems on top of everything else going on around this movie makes me feel that much more unenthused about it’s eventual release.

Looks like the film will be fantastic to me. I don’t mind a ton of guest stars in a Flash film (or most any other DC film). At this point, “Flashpoint” is just another name for “multiverse”, so I’m not worried about them repeating what was in the original comic - I actually think Flashpoint might make for a better title for the movie

Like they have no faith in the movie and/or character.
