Anyway, it would really suck for anyone making a restart at this point in time. It's nearly close to impossible to find anyone better suited for the role than Brandon.
Personally I would think Gosling would make a better Flash. He has the personality and slender build to make it work as Bart.
The problem is easy to fix. Simply have Gosling wear his hair down as Clark Kent at the Daily Planet. Thats something that should have always been done IMO. It would help him hide.
I have aloy of casting choices that havent been mentioned around here and would draw a raised eyebrow, but when it was said and done would create an excellent film, with the right script and Director of course.
