But frankly the 'death of a hero then passing down the legacy' thing has been seen quite a bit and may be a bit cliche by now. It's very possible that WB will forego this altogether and leave Barry as Flash forever. They really have no need for Wally since he's not big in the comics anymore and DC won't be making any money off of him.
Also, I'm in favor of what Llama Shepherd said.
Is the passing the torch thing really a "cliche" thing for superhero movies so far? Maybe TDKR... But even then it's A. Somewhat controversial amongst fans and B. Not the thrust of the film until the final shot you could argue.
As for whom shall be The Flash? I can take either as I've always liked both, even if I am firmly in the "Barry should have been kept deceased" camp. To my mind Barry is indeed like everybody's favorite goofy young Uncle. Wally is like everybody's favorite goofy older nephew. Take from that what you will.
