I say just go with what you got and throw Rian on as director and Aaron Paul on as Barry or Bart. Coming fresh off two acclaimed pieces of work respectively should provide some comfort.

Really liking Aaron Paul for Barry. Though nobody is going top the perfect choice of Chris Pine as the Flash.

I want Rian Johnson for Batman but having him on any DC project sounds good to me. Rian Johnson and Aaron Paul seems like a great pairing.

Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling on Flash though would be a dream come true

Great cast! Count me out of the adult Wally West group... imho that's the way of 1997's Batman and Robin. Unless you make Wally West a totally different character like John Blake.

All of that would be insane.

Rian Johnson for batman. JGL says he's down if he gets a good script for a post TDKR movie. Rian Johnson would be the guy i would get for that if at anytime it were to happen. But Rian directing the reboot would be a blast as well.

Refn/Gosling/Flash? Perfection.

JGL is one of my favorite actors, Brick is my favorite movie, but I definitely don't want to see John Blake as Batman.. Im not keen on that idea AT ALL. I love Rian and JGL working together but not on a Batman reboot. Id much rather Rian direct a reboot than a continuation.

I'd rather see Refn do the one he's interested in. Wonder Woman.

As would I dude. Im down for Christina Hendricks as Wonder Woman because I have faith in Refn.

WB would be so stupid to let him go after he so publicly declared that he wanted to adapt Wonder Woman

He is EASILY one of the best directors around right now

Aaron Paul is such a great Flash choice.

I remember the first time I saw him in anything was in a Korn music video for a song called Thoughtless, its insane ha

Thanks man! I prefer Wally to be about 15-17, same age as Dick Grayson.

I've rarely seen a pic of Paul with hair and no facial hair, but he definitely could do the Barry thing. Flash is one of the few heroes where he'd actually have to not bulk up too much due to his metabolism being so fast.

As Batman? It'll never happen on film. But the question for JGL was "as Robin, Nightwing or Batman" and he said if it's a good script & he likes the director he's interested. So in that case i would vote for a more mature take on Robin/Nightwing with Rian Johnson directing. Would LOVE to see that.

Rian directing the reboot with a younger Bruce Wayne would be beyond awesome, as well as a Flash movie.

Refn is one of my favs now, and i would certainly trust him with a Wonder Woman, Flash OR Batman film.

Very interesting choice, I love him on Breaking Bad. Definitely has the chops, but not sure if he exudes "superhero." And even though Flash is one of the slimmer superheroes, he'd still have to add significant weight. Dude is THIN.

Barry isn't supposed to look like Batman or Superman, that's the thing. He's just a guy working in forensics and what not.

I just watched the new Fright Night. Pretty cool movie.

Anton Yelchin would be ideal for Wally.

True, but Aaron Paul isn't just slim, he's very skinny. He looks like he clocks in around 130-140 lbs., standing about 5'9"-5'10". He'd need to add 25 pounds at least just to get to "thin."

He's gotta look good in a tight-fitting suit. Need some mass for that.
