Flashpoint...Setting Up For the DCnU Justice League Line-Up?

Starting in Flashpoint #3, Batman & the Flash set out to recreate the Justice League. By the end of issue #3, they had a group of Batman, Cyborg, and the Flash, with Supes having just flown off to who-knows-where. In a preview for Flashpoint #4, you see Cyborg, Batman, & Flash being attacked by a bunch of soldiers and then Element Woman attacks the guards and takes them down. The last page of the fight is seen here.

So far in Flashpoint we've seen Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Hal Jordan (without the ring, but Abin Sur is alive), Firestorm, Mera, Aquaman, Cyborg, Deadman, and Green Arrow (plus maybe the white haired girl that no one can identify). All we need is for Hawkman and the Atom be seen somewhere is issue #4 or #5 and there's our JLA line-up.

So does this mean we'll see all of these characters at the very end of Flashpoint #5 take on the Reverse-Flash, which will then lead into Justice League #1? What does this mean for our new JLA line-up?
I think we'll probably see either Hal Jordan or Abin Sur join in on the JLA in Flashpoint #4 or #5.
I was kinda hoping to see the Flashpoint-JLA on the cover of Flashpoint #5, but there was no such luck.

I could see #s 4 & 5 being the lead-up in which the other members of the JLA team-up against Wonder Woman & Aquaman, while the Flash & Batman go after the Reverse-Flash. And maybe something happens to make Aquaman & Wonder Woman end their war against one another. Or something like that. I've read Flashpoint #s 1-3 and I'm actually finding it kind of interesting. But maybe that's because I'm more interested in finding out how #5 basically creates the DCnU.
