i never really have a problem with racial changes, but when you've got other characters that fit the objective, it doesn't make sense to me. i think a black luthor is fine. but a hispanic flash when you can use rayner as gl or reyes as blue beetle doesn't compute for me.

I don't have a problem with race changes most of the time as long as the character either still looks like the comic book counterpart (Tadanobu Asano as Hogun, Jessica Alba as Invisible Woman... somewhat, Gal Gadot as WW), if the character is not a major character (Idris Elba as Heimdall, Kerry Washington as Alicia Masters), or if on rare occasion it just WORKS (Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Michael Clarke Duncan as Kingpin, JamieFox as Electro). Casting Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm or Denzel Washington as Lex Luthor don't fit any of these scenarios in my opinion. However, finding a hispanic actor that can still look like the comic book Flash isn't hard to do so I'm all for it.

They shouldn't change the characters race just for the sake of changing the race, but if an actor is right for a role I have no problems.

I'd be pretty pumped if we got Denzel as Lex

Sam Clafin. He was great in Catching Fire and has the sort of noble confidence and charm that Flash should embody.

This is what the Flash looks like. I don't think these rumors are true, especially in regard to this character.

Don't be like that. Like those Japanese DBZ fans that went crazy after they casts a white Goku.

I personally don't mind it either way. It's not about the character's ethnicity, it's about staying true to what makes the character(his morals, his powers etc..) and making a good movie.

That means Wally will most likely be black. I'm a bit disappointed, i was looking forward to a ginger superhero!
I do like the idea of Iris' family taking Barry in after his dad was wrongly convicted of his mom's murder

I think Barry will be in the spin-off.
