New details begin to emerge about plans canceled by Warner ahead of Warner Bros. Discovery’s promised 10-year program. According to The Hollywood Reporter the film major he had in mind a film based on Crisis on Infinite Earths, the great crossover of DC comics which performed the total reboot function.
Warner had a Crisis on Infinite Earth movie in mind
Apparently David Hamada, president of DC Films, he wanted to create a real cinematic event to pay homage to the greatest DC story ever made and bring the Multiverse to the cinema. Crisis on Infinite Earths has already had a live action adaptation, or the crossover of the Arrowverse in 2019, bringing together the Flash of the television series (played by Grant Gustin) with that of Ezra Miller.
Crisis on infinite Earths – Crisis on Infinite Earths in English and then commonly known as Crisis – was one of the first crossovers of the US superhero genre comics market. It was published by DC from April 1985 to March 1986 in twelve issues and the aim was to bring order to the complex continuity of the DC Universe constituted up to that moment by infinite parallel worlds. The series was made by Marv Wolfman at the texts and by the artist George Pérez (who passed away this year due to pancreatic cancer).
The plans have been canceled, as was the case with the Batgirl movie, and the future of the Multiverse on the big screen looks increasingly hazy. Due to the continuing legal problems that are seeing Ezra Miller as protagonist, in fact, Warner would be seriously considering the idea of completely blocking the release of The Flash at the cinema: an unprecedented hypothesis since the film cost over 200 million. dollars and would see the return of Michael Keaton’s Batman after more than 30 years.
