Flash Movie to Adapt Flashpoint

Word out of SDCC is that the upcoming Flash movie will adapt the Flashpoint storyline. Season 3 of The Flash TV show also did this to an extent.

There was a main Flashpoint story line that spawned off numerous miniseries. The first issue had several variants including the regular cover, a 1:25 sketch variant sketch, a 2nd print, a 3rd print, an Ivan Reis Variant, a Fan Expo variant, and a SDCC variant.

Those looking for the book should also check out Amazon, copies of the Ivan Reis variant, as well as the SDCC variant as copies are being gobbled up off eBay.

 

From Gizmodo

We’ve not heard a lot about Warner Bros.’ Flash movie lately—especially as it still doesn’t have a director. But moments ago at Comic-Con, we just got seeming confirmation that the movie is going in a new direction by adapting the infamous Flashpoint storyline.

Geoff John’s 2011 set the groundwork for what would become DC’s complete reboot of its comic book continuity, presenting an alternate world where Barry Allen saved his mother from death at the hands of one of his deadliest enemies, the Reverse Flash. The series directly lead into the creation of the New 52 universe, a streamlined reboot of DC’s major characters that wiped the slate clean.

    Still has those SDCC variants up for $10 a piece. Don’t over that on eBay guys. Go see if graphitti still has some left first.

    Not sure if I bought one or two of the SDCC version last year, but added two more from the Graphitti site. My order went through so I assume they have them in stock. We will see. Thanks for the heads up Richard.

      They haven’t charged my CC yet either. It’s Sunday and comic con weekend. I’m sure they got the orders and that they can fulfill. They pulled the book listing from their store, so they must have some sort of inventory tracking on it. Unless they said “what are all these orders for this 6 year old book?! Oh shit, WB announced what!? We don’t have all those books! Take it down take it down take it down!!!!”

      • Wells Floyd says:

        Still haven’t charged my cc yet either and I ordered 3 around 4 am last night eastern time. We shall see.

      • Nolan says:

        Looks like its still up and available on the site to me. Not sure if that is a good or a bad sign.

    I really thought after CWTV Flash season #3 that this was a dead spec. Go figure.

  4. Gregory Baez says:

    Thank you the heads up all, I purchased a few last night from http://www.graphittidesigns.com
    Thank you Richard for tha , the order went though but they didn’t charge my CC hoping for the best
    Thanks

    Warner has absolutely no idea how to handle the DC characters. Using Flashpoint proves it. 75 years of Flash stories to pull from and they retread a confusing storyline the TV series just did. And then to use a story that reboots the fledgling movie universe?
    The only way I could buy this would be if they opened the film with the tv crew, Barry flashpoints time, and it starts over with the Ezra kid. Maybe the same way resets Batffleck too.

  6. Anthony says:

    They are still up on the site.

  7. Ben Hansell says:

    Has anyone else gotten a receipt for their purchase? I bought a few of these, no receipt, no order confirmation, no charge on my CC or PP? Still available on the site? This is looking fishy!!! Has anyone ordered from Graphittie Designs before? Are they trustworty?

    • Anthony says:

      Yes. They are a well established company who has been around for years. I have ordered shirts from them in the past.

    • Nolan says:

      I called then 2 days ago, and the lady said the guys were just then getting back from comicon, and they would be sorting it out soon.

      She said they didnt know if they would have enough inventory to cover the order, and that they would be filled based on who ordered first.

      She also said something about them looking into other ways to get the inventory to fill those orders too. Should have followed up on that, but she said something about them possibly ordering from somewhere to get more?

      Dunno.

  8. Nolan says:

    Weird, I was checking on variants at previews world, and I found this listed in their incentive/variant cover section for upcomming books.

    I ordered two copies of the SDCC variant, says they just shipped today. And they are still available on the website! Must have a bunch with all of us ordering multiple copies!
