I think the idea originally came from John's Flash Rebirth mini but it sounds like the movie is going to do that whole Henry Allen has been framed by Reverse Flash for Nora's murder plot that took up season 1 of the CW show. Why can' they do something different for the movie. We've already seen this story with the show.

We've also seen Flashpoint but guess what the rumor I've been hearing? The movie might do Flashpoint or at least their version of it.

Doesn't matter if this turns out to be not true, the movie is already copying the show. Only thing is, Grant Gustin is a MUCH better Flash than the guy they picked to be play him in the movie.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
