Professor Zoom / Eobard Thawne (C. Thomas Howell)
While I liked the portion of the plot which took place in the alternate universe, the story lacked a good explanation regarding the cause and resolution of the entire story. In short, how could the Flash stop himself?*

Batman / Thomas Wayne (Kevin McKidd)
Regardless, I liked the pacing of this movie. Furthermore, I enjoyed this movie more than Justice League: War (2014).

In the end, The Flashpoint Paradox is yet another DC animated movie worth watching if you're into animated superhero movies.

Green Lantern / Hal Jordan (Nathan Fillion)
Instant Comments:
Lol, a gun wielding Batman.
Yo-yo? Like a version of Harley Quinn?
"Cyborg? I surrender. To you."

Superman (Sam Daly)
"You should have let her hit the pavement." - Batman
Hmm. So this is like a follow-up to Justice League: War?
Barry figured that out so quickly: Thomas Wayne.
That's intense. His wife became Joker.

Words of a journalist: "My battery is about to die and I will likely to be joining it soon."
"Hmm. So I'm finally on the other end of that trick." (The Flash disappears before Batman can finish talking)
Definitely paradoxical...

Lois Lane (Dana Delany)
"Or perhaps... it was a gift."
"You're one hell of a messenger."

*From reading the summary for the original story, I guess it might go down something like this: Barry runs back in time and saves his mother from being killed, but creates a ripple in time upon doing so.

Aquaman (Cary Elwes)
He probably also "destroys" himself, that is the one that went back in time would no longer exists, but under whatever imaginary rules of time which are in place, the ripples have already occurred. Then the Barry that wakes up is the one from the new timeline, yet somehow has only memories of the old timeline. In any case, the new Barry is a second Barry.

Cyborg / Victor Stone (Michael B. Jordan)
This new Barry is the one that goes back to stop the first Barry. What isn't mentioned, however, is that a new timeline was created (in real life, the conclusion of the Flashpoint story led to the release of The New 52).

Lex Luthor (Steve Blum)
