Following the announcement of the Flash Point movie by Warner Brothers at San Diego Comic Con, fans erupted with excitement regarding the possibility of The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan becoming Batman and the Joker on the big screen.
Now, fans have another reason to be excited. Morgan, who portrays Negan on the AMC series, quickly took to Twitter to tease a potential appearance as Thomas Wayne donning the cape and cowl of Batman as seen in the Flashpoint comic book series.
“Did you say… #Flashpoint?” Morgan wrote in the tweet which came with a photo of himself and Cohan at the 2017 Comic Con panel. He also tagged her in the tweet.

In the Flashpoint story, Barry Allen goes back in time to save his mother. However, in doing so, Barry disturbs the world’s timeline and creates a new world, spawned by a butterfly effect type of story based on the change to his mother’s fate. In this timeline, the Wayne family is in an entirely different predicament. Rather than Thomas and Martha having been killed, prompting Bruce Wayne to grow into the Caped Crusader, the father of the family is the one who takes on the responsibility of protecting Gotham.
Thomas Wayne is Batman in the Flashpoint story.
