So it looks like Shawn Levy from Night at the Museum is the new director. He also did Cheaper by the Dozen and one episdoe of Birds of Prey (oh boy). I don't know. It's too bad David Goyer is off the film. With DC getting rid of Joss Whedon and Goyer, what are they thinking?

An early rumor was Ryan Reynolds playing Wally. That'd I'd wanna see.

Hate to say it but I'll probably pass this movie up. Just don't find any of the Flashes to be very interesting. Unless they make the character somewhat down to earth. That would perk my interest. And the only villian that seems remotely intersting is the Reverse Flash.

I wonder what would attract more viewers, The Flash or Iron Fist movie ?

If i'm not mistaken (probably am) but I think they're getting the same guy who played Toad in the 1st X-men movie to play Rand.

Yea I've heard that too. Should be interesting IF the movie gets made.

Heh we kinda strayed way off topic, sorry G-Man, i'd probably go see the Flash movie though, more to see who he fights than to see him in action.

No apologese needed. I just don't know how the movie will be. And with Goyer off, I really don't have too high of hopes. But again, I'd love for Ryan Reynolds to be in it.

Ryan Reynolds is hilarious. He was the only reason I watched Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place, (well Nathan Fillion was good too). He could've pulled off Wally.

Funny thing, in some countries, Flash is known as Flush Man...

Two Guys and a Girl (With or without a Pizza Place) was a work of art on par with the Sistine Chapel, and you'd do well to show it the proper respect.

Man, you haters with your hating...

I really need people to stop saying that Ryan Reynolds could "pull off" Wally. I just need you to stop.

He was pretty buff in Blade 3. But yeah, we gotta stop getting RedLAMP all excited.

Loved name tag in Blade 3 though. Only Ryan Reynolds could pull that off.

If Flash is done with the same care for special effects as the matrix,spiderman,and hulk and the same focus of characterization as Batman begins, but with a different feel. Flash may be one of the best superhero movies ever made. And Ryan Reynolds coul pull off Wally in my opinion:)

I'm not even getting my hopes up. That way I won't be as disappointed if it comes out bad. It'd be a shame. It hasn't started production yet, as far as I know but still has a 2008 release date.

i agree ryan reynolds or a unknown actor with a good script and a nice budjet it would work

Yeah, i think Ryan Reynolds would make a great Wally West he has the kind of humour, cockiness and sometimes serious.

I can't wait for The Flash movie but i'm not too sure whether the Director will be any good.

I don't see how any director could mess this up.

All you need is.

Funny punchlines,

lots of superspeed action,

imaginative fight scenes,

an explosion in an office building and the flash gets everyone out 1 at a time AS it's exploding.

That'd be awesome.

Please let this be a good movie! He's my second favourite hero!

they haven't started filming yet and as far as I know there haven't been cast auditions maybe this is like superman's sequel that was put back because of the JLA movie and beside along with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman flash is the only confirmed character
