Aaron Paul can't play The Flash the way he's played other roles I've seen him in. He can't just be Aaron Paul as The Flash. He can bring shades of himself to the role, but his typical style of acting doesn't work for Barry Allen.

I can see it working for Bart Allen, or if they want to portray movie Flash like he was in Justice League the animated Series.

TBH, Aaron Paul is a blonde actor that I really really really like and respect. He doesn't really scream the Flash to me though. Not Barry anyway. I have confidence that he could play the role because he's such a good actor, but the portrayal has to be different from anything we've seen him in before.

We'd be honored to have an actor of Paul's level as The Flash though. I'd love to see what he'd do with the role.

And Kryptonian Warrior- I'd say that's accurate. In the comics, he gets his powers in his early 20s, so someone Grant Gustin's age may be cast as the movie Flash. Personally, I hope that Cyborg fills the young guy role of the team. Late 20s early 30s for Barry and Hal.

If Paul was Flash, I think he could nail it. He would have to be more of himself in real life. Most of his roles were of anti-heroes. I hear in real life he is very friendly and stuff and completely different to Jesse. If he were to play Flash like himself while still bringing a little comedy to the role, I think he'd nail it. I mean this:

Chris Pine? His star is kind of dangling over a precipice and this role may help.

Lol weirdo, i saw that Xbox commercial the other day and I had just rewatched the New Frontier and I was thinking the exact same thing!! Totally reminds me of Barry there.

**** it. You're right. Aaron Paul would make an amazing Flash. And all my buddies are obsessed with Breaking Bad, they'll see any movie with Jesse Pinkman in it

I vehemently supported Aaron Paul for Flash, then kinda backed off from the idea, now I'm definitely back on again.

These Justice League characters need to have strong distinct personalities, Paul could help with that fo sho.

Chris Pine would be great as Hal, I'm not really feeling him as The Flash, but it could work.

I'd rather have Aaron Paul than Chris Pine as Flash. Pine works better as Hal, but even that doesn't work since he's been Kirk twice.

I think Chris Pine would be better suited to Hal. But that is honeslty me just typecasting him because of Kirk.

What about Daniel Bruhl? He's a fantastic actor.

This is going to sound stupid, but he looks too foreign... too European.. Barry has an average all american look that Bruhl doesn't fit at all. I'm sure he's a great actor, I'm just not feeling him as Barry.

and yeah completely agreed about Pine as Hal. It makes so much sense. But at this point, it'd definitely be typecasting, and idk I'd rather have someone else as Hal. Someone whose performance would be less predictable

My pick for Hal was always Bradley Cooper.

Could still happen. Maybe.

True but at the same time Daredevil is Batman, Storm was Catwoman, Robin is Sandman, Human Torch is Captain America, Kingpin was Kilowog, Thanos was Jonah Hex and Deadpool was Green Lantern.

He's only voice acting though.

So Aaron Paul is having a fan twitter type thing going on where you ask him questions right now.

I asked him if he would play the Flash.

Now we wait to see if he will respond.

Usually I would recommend him for that role (yeah it's typecasting), but Hal being Green Lantern in the films is still up in the air. For all we know we may end up with John Stewart.

It seems like he's done. He hasn't replied to anyone's Tweets in over 10 minutes.

Of course, the second I send one the session ends.

I don't think so. Elmayimbe is saying New 52 lineup, and all signs are pointing to a new 52 lineup. Why would they do a Flash/GL movie without Hal and Barry?

I want Hal in the movies. But Dwayne Johnson and Aaron Paul in a GL/Flash movie, would be perfect. I can imagine those guys working well together

Rumors blah blah blah rumors. El Maybe? C'mon Rorschach you're not shauner don't believe what he says. We now have rumors of MM in the film as well. Again rumors that are neither here nor there nor anywhere.

Elmayimbe's scoops turn out right a LOT of the time. It's unwise to completely ignore everything he says. He's not always right, but he's definitely not always wrong either.

Same with the Martian Manhunter/Maxwell Lord rumor. That's coming from a pretty damn reputable source. I wouldn't ignore that rumor either.

I will only consider these rumors when actual confirmation comes through otherwise it's white noise.

That's boring. Reading and talking about all the rumors about superhero movies before they come out is basically half the reason I even use Superherohype...

I really like Liam Hemsworth for Hal. He's already a WB guy and seems like the right age for what I expect to see. I dunno...

Aaron Paul was asked if he would like to play a superhero in a interview with the metro newspaper and said he would rather play a supervillain.
