Mark waid speaks on the movie and tv flash
I thought that Mark Waid kinda liked MoS or at least appreciated the things they took from Birthright.
I also remember that he had some nice words to say about the Flash tv show
What a moron.
The flash show is alright, but Gustin is far from being a good or even just natural-sounding actor. Dude sounds like he has a speech impediment sometimes and really he's not ready to lead a franchise. That's why you would have two guys in the role. One is suited for the small screen, while the other is actually ready for the big one. So for starters, the acting quality will differentiate the show and the movie. Another way? Don't bog down the movie with origins.
It always strikes me as a little odd how he says, "I am thE fastest man alive." It sounds very awkward. I hardly ever pronounce the e in the.
Well, the movie can be good, for one thing.
A better Iris West, writers who can write Iris West better, and the romance better.
I think the Flash is big enough of a character to be both on TV and movie at the same time. Bigger than both Batman and Superman!
The cinematic Flash could operate without a crew (Star Labs). Although that would mean we could or would need a voiceover to figure out what he's thinking.
I would actually appreciate it if for diversity's sake Barry and Iris are already married or at least engaged in the DCEU. No more get the girl stuff. I know Ezra is even younger than Grant Gustin, but it does happen.
Well I think DCEU Barry may be too young for that right now Clois on the other hand, also lets not forget about Aquaman, Mera, and Aqua Baby. t:
Well, I was going to say "A white circle on his chest", but scratch that.
A Flash that has some muscle definition?
Flash having internal monologues when he's running and all could be awesome, and also make the movie more unique among the other movies. It would sound very comic booky. And he is probably the most relatable DC character, pretty much like Spider-Man. Him speaking to the audience would reinforce that aspect.
Pretty much this.
Make Flash/Barry confident and smart. Only use the new 52 for the discovery. Stick to canon as much as possible.
Both of the masked Flashes? Or mostly Wally?
alot of villains is tough for character development... I think the first film should be a mix between Spiderman and 21 Jump Street.. It sets up the characters and motivations.. Entertains with humour, I don't expect it would be outright wild humour like 21 jump street but make Flash witty and not an emotionally unstable boy...
The villain should be Mirror Master or Trickster: make them in the most realistic nolany way as possible, and incorporate humour and storytelling style of 21 Jump Street.. Captain Cold could work too, but I don't like how he is protrayed in the flash series, he is pretty cheesy and silly; so yea make him realistic and not corny. His character motivations are okay in the series though, they should make it alot better in the film if they use him however
Then the sequel should incorporate the flashpoint storyline and have Reverse Flash/Eobard as the main villain... Nolan's trilogy did it right, they used the main villain right in the middle..
I hate the idea of a crew assisting him... He is a forensic scientist ofcourse, they should make him smart af... Make him like Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes..
and a brilliant forensic scientist like dexter, well except for the serial killing part. They should make his motivations and personality like dexters.. except not insane, but like how he wants to bring criminals to justice (without killing them) and how he uses his forensic findings to catch the criminal.. like in DEXTER..
so for those who have not seen dexter. He is a bloodspatter analyst that uses blood and forensic details he captures directly to find out a killer in order for him to kill him. so he sometimes does not disclose the evidence inorder for him to kill the person.. so you get the idea. He does research of criminals in his office at work and leaves to investigate by himself.. This could work well with this universe's flash, he should discover his abilities by himself and hunt badguys by himself in unethical ways in his occupation as a forensic scientist. He should use his profession to his advantage
I'm still fascinated by the idea of him having internal monologues. He could even say "flash facts"
They should really push the boundaries, be imaginative with the cinematography, etc...
Ironically, that is how Grant Gustin's character started back on Arrow. He even did some of it in the Pilot. Then it sort of fizzed off.
Yeah, I really miss the CSI aspect from the Pilot. The series went to a major storyline instead of crime investigation "rogue of the day".
I think that it might behoove the production to have this actually be the first super hero movie that has the character's narrating inner monologue going through out the entire film. Seriously when in a CBM have we really seen that aspect translated fully? And I don't mean as a bookend technique at the start of a movie/show and the end of a movie/show. That would eliminate some of the need of a "pit crew" (a weakness of the TV show in my mind and something that allows for undercutting the intelligence of their lead character) to be characters that give exposition to the audience. Barry in the films can do that himself and it would give us a window into Barry's inner life.
I think Watchmen is the only CBM movie that used more of it, and only for the Rorschach scenes which are what he writes in his journal, like the comic book.
And it worked great.
Something like the intro to Zombieland would be awesome.
1. Better Flash/Barry Allen
2. Better actor in Ezra Miller
3. Better costume
4. Way better visual effects
5. Set in the DCEU, which allows for cross-overs with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman etc
6. Not set in the CWverse
7. More faithful version of Grodd (HATED Grodd in the show)
8. Better action sequences
9. Better Reverse Flash (although I will admit he was handled pretty well in the show, but the movie could do It better)
10. Better Iris
I don't remember, didn't Sin City do that to nigh on perfection too?
