I like Charlie Hunnam for the role Barry Allen. How about Kate Mara for Iris West?

P.S Should Flash's eyes be covered or uncovered in the film?

I person wearing goggles wouldn't look good when you need to be able to see all of the actor's expressions.

Like Batman's building attack at the end of The Dark Knight.

Constantly pulling the goggles off his head would get old, too.

No goggles. That would be terrible. Again, you can't mess with The Flash's look, it's one of, if not the best designed costume of all time. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Chris Pine. Im not a huge Flash fan but I do like the character. Whenever I picture Flash I picture a young, funny "cool" kinda guy. So I think Chris Pine is a great choice. Like great. Bradley Cooper would be my second choice, but I would rather Pine.

In the DCAU Fladh had white lenes covering his eyes like Batman. He also had them in the Young Justice cartoon.

That's just how they draw their eyes, dude, nobody ever said they were lenses. Just depends on the design they settle on, apparently The Flashes in those shows have very small eye holes in their suits, like Batman. Batman in "real life" or "live action" has pupils. We know they're NOT lenses because they shut when he blinks on the shows, same as Flash. If they were lenses they'd be mostly expressionless, like Spider-Man's. It would look so bad in live action (because it's not The Flash ), besides, real Flash fans know the significance of The Flash's eyes and why he wanted them exposed, there is a reason Barry Allen designed his suit that way in the comics..

Tired of these ****in' amateurs comin' in here wanting to change The Flash with their revisions and make him fit their view of him through their prism and go on what they think he is, not what he is. And the people that think Flash is "teh guy on Justice League Unlimited and he is really dumb and fun-neh!".



...when, while he does have a sense of humor, The Flash is NOT a joke and much, MUCH more than just his sense of humor and should not be played for laughs. That sucks, and really diminishes his awesome factor. The one time they actually did play him semi serious on the show everybody talks about; imagine how awesome he would have been if they'd have done that the whole time?

Barry's eyes are usually exposed in the books. Wally was the one who tended to have his eyes covered by the white slits - not always but usually.

If ur talking about me sorry I got u upset lol. Like I said I like Flash, not trying to disrespect his character at all. Just when I see say an animated series the Flash is ussually pretty young looking and is always funny. He does have his serious moments to though of course. Thats why I think Chris Pine is a great choice. Cause hes a good actor that can be funny and serious, and he hes got the look of Flash down pack.

Yeah, he did have that "new look" thing for a while there in the early-mid 90s, but it was never specified whether they were lenses for sure or not IIRC, although I have seen Barry drawn with white eyes before too, it really just depends on the artist I think.

Jake G IMO is too short to play Barry. Plus he talks funny, like his mouth is full of sand all the time.

Too short? Do you know how tall Barry Allen is in the comics? Given that we have a 6'1" Superman, Gyllenhaal, if anything is too tall for Flash!

And I don't think he talks funny- he talks the way he needs to role by role-but I'll put that down to personal opinion.

Do you not get that? Nobody but you is inferring Boreanaz now. [lol]

It's posted to show yeah it's a great sign, but the Charlie Hunnam in pre-production art now doesn't necessarily mean WB will cast him when the movie is finally made..
Huh, while your probably right, Boreanz is too old to play Barry or Wally. . . what about Jay Garrick, or perhaps Max Mercury?

No I don't know how tall Barry is in the comics, not like they bring it up much. But Superman is 6'2 in the comics (from a trading card I have) so he's my height. I have problems with these superheros played by manlets.

And Jake G's voice is weird as all heck, I couldn't make it through a whole movie of his.

Superman is 6' 4', Batman is 6' 2' (or 6' 1' I think), The Flash is 5' 11', sometimes 6'.

Iris West was a tv reporter in the comics for Picture News IIRC, and the "paper" she worked for in one version was the Central City Citizen or something like that I believe.

Whatever they do...I hope they make the costume as close to the comics as possible. Like Raimi's Spider-Man outfit.

IMO, the Flash outfit looks cheesy whenever they try to modernize it.
