Default The Barry Allen/Flash Casting Thread

According to Variety, Flash appearing in this film is a done deal.

So who should play The Flash?


My personal choice for Barry would be Dan Stevens from Downtown Abbey and The Fifth Estate.






He has leading man potential if Flash gets a solo franchise.

The suit looks much better in action. The head looked oddly big in the promo art but looks fine in the filming pics.

Dude... *GREAT* casting. I would have never thought of it, but it's wonderful.

Really? That's awesome if true. Like the picks for Flash there too. Very nice.

I think the suit, in action, looks atrocious. Not a fan at all.

I know there's going to be effects when he's running, but ughhhh not my cup of tea ill tell you that. With the CW network, im not surprised.

Arrow Season 2 is nothing (NOTHING) like Smallville or any other CW show.

Although it's significantly better than season 1, it's still very CW.

There's a party in almost every episode

The suit is disappointing but predictable.

Hmmm... well, it's not quite what I was expecting but I think we do have to take into account that these suits do tend to look at least a little different on camera than they do in set photos. I'm not as crazy about it as I wanted to be; not sure that I like the loose-fitting "jacket" look or the belt. It does remind me a bit of the Daredevil costume, although I liked that suit, so that's not necessarily a bad thing, IMO.

The mask is by far the best part of the costume. I think they'll tweak it over time and we'll eventually get something more akin to Captain America's Avengers costume or the Amazing Spider-Man 2 suit. However, it could certainly be a LOT worse (see: cancelled Justice League TV show suit).

At least it's a better look than that awful Quicksilver costume in X-Men: DOFP.

I just don't know why it's so hard to give Flash boots that look like something you'd actually run in. You know, with an upward curved toe at least. WB and DC keep making new incarnations, yet they don't give the runner running shoes, instead he always has combat boots.

That probably won't be the only version of the costume we'll see. They will most likely upgrade it as the series goes on. That said, I don't mind it, but I'll reserve judgement till i see it on the screen.

I don't hate it, but I don't exactly love it or like it. It's so-so.

Here are my thoughts on the suit:


I give the suit a 5.5, maybe a 6 out of 10.

They CW'd him a good bit, here's what needs fixed:

- Needs the white behind the logo instead of red, also the lightning bolts should be symmetrical instead of the bottom end being shorter than the top part.

- Needs the right ear pieces like how Ethan Van Sciver draws them as seen below:



- Needs the gold lightning trim on the forearm area of the costume and the waist/"belt" area.

- Although I'd love to see the gold boots, I know CW doesn't have the balls for that, so gold lightning trim on the top of The Flash's boots right where they meet below his knees would be ideal.

- Suit should look less busy, and that bigass belt buckle NEEDS to go.

- Make the "red" areas on the suit crimson/scarlet instead of burgundy.

Other than that the rest is fine. I really hope this suit is just the Mark 1 and we will see some big improvements in later episodes, there's definitely room for them. Oh and the chin strap doesn't bug me too much, I think it's stupid but I can take or leave it.

I do like the brighter red better and while I was very excited earlier from the official pic then Highly letdown by these setpics I'll remain optimistic I really hope the show is good and it's possible the suit will look better when it's in action.

Let's see how the red will show on TV after post-production, shall we?

Who knows, that bright red might end up horrible...
