Jeffrey Dean Morgan has responded to the Flashpoint announcement from the Warner Bros. Comic-Con panel.
Today at San Diego Comic-Con it was announced that The Flash solo movie would be called Flashpoint. Fans might recognize that title as being an event from the comics that deals with the changes stemming from Barry Allen going back in time to save his mother.
One of these changes in this new alternate timeline is the outcome of the robbery that kills Thomas and Martha Wayne. In this universe, young Bruce Wayne is murdered and Thomas and Martha go on to become Batman and The Joker.
After news of the Flashpoint film got out, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan tweeted out a picture of him and Lauren Cohen at SDCC for a Walking Dead panel. Fans might recall Morgan and Cohen played Thomas and Martha Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check out the tweet below:

While playful and not a firm answer, it certainly sounds like Morgan might be interested in putting on the cowl and becoming the Batman in this alternate timeline. Not much is known about whether or not the Flashpoint film will deal with this particular storyline, but be sure to stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for any updates.
