Yeah, that's kind of "Inside-Out Flash" more than "Reverse Flash".

I'm wondering what the whole suit looks like. I think it will have primarily black for some reason.

Captain Cold and Heat Wave should be in the first film. They could start out as scientists doing experiments with the weather, and be the ones that causes the thunderstorm of the century, resulting in the lightening bolt that gives Barry Allen his powers.

Or Weather Wizard could do that

You ironically remind me of a bit of fridge brilliance in Superman: TAS. There is one episode, involving the Flash and the Weather Wizard, wherein the weather gets royally messed up by a superweapon controlling the weather.

The very next episode has a freakish thunderstorm that grants a random person electrical superpowers when they get struck by lightning.

Haha that's really weird. I never thought to look at it that way. Cool.

On the Reverse Flash: Ew. Of course, the Yellow costume is pretty much unfilmable, unless you're going to camp it up.

On Logic vs Realism: The issue is conservation of premise, the more out-there elements you have to introduce, the less credible your story is, the more the audience feels another out there element can spring up. This goes for your hero and villains. If the audience can't logically see how things would work in hindsight, you lose them. Yes there's room for some rule of cool, but you can't just not care about the details either.

The danger issue is kinda separate, and that just has to do with powering down Flash so that his rogues hold a believable threat against him without Flash forgetting powers and skills as he does in comics often. Also, it's inexpensive to tear up an area and do an area effect in the comics to give Flash challenge, a movie may not be able to do that every single conflict. You can power him up as he battles foes that are far superior ie speedsters, serious masterminds, mastery types ala Grodd/Abra

Batman wears black.

I always figured they could solve the whole "Reverse Flash" thing by having The Reverse Flash actually be an imposter out to destroy The Flash's reputation and legacy, not The Reverse Flash, which is something of a silly concept.

I think this actor could work for Barry Allen. The character is supposed to be shorter than the other heroes, right?

Not that short. And does he have anything else to bring to the role than being short?

Check out Zoom. It's a family friendly superhero adventure, in almost the same style as Sky High, and Zegers is the villain.

The new Reverse Flash, guys:



Thoughts? I actually think he looks pretty badass. And hey, they kept the color scheme. I could see this doing well in a movie, although it will take some adjusting from the old look for me. Not bad.

That's an interesting look. It works for the comics, but I don't know if it'd work in a film.

It's definitely terrifying. I just hope the story is good. The series has been great so far. I'd like to see more pics of it too.
