Jeffrey Dean Morgan has reiterated his desire to play Flashpoint Batman in DC Comics’ shared movie universe. In case you missed Geoff John’s massive crossover story arc, the alternate Flashpoint universe is the result of Barry Allen’s meddling with the timeline. After going back in time to save his mother’s life, the Flash wakes up in a world consumed by chaos. The Amazons are at war with the Atlanteans, Cyborg is the only active Justice Leaguer, and Bruce Wayne isn’t even Batman. Instead of his parents (Thomas and Martha Wayne) having been gunned down when he was a boy, it was Bruce who died in that alley in this timeline.
