For now, not a lot is understood in regards to the plot and plot of the solo movie of the flash. However, contemplating the earlier phases of manufacturing and the leaked behind-the-scenes information, one factor is for certain: the saga Ignition Point it can in all probability be the primary foundation for the function movie, since all earlier scripts went on this route.
