    Well I can't think of a villain for him. Sure many fancasts have him for Venom and Jason Todd but they are more anti-heroes like a certain character Aaron played...

    I think if he was offered Flash, he would do it.

    I could see Aaron Paul as Wesley Gibson, the main character in Wanted. Unfortunately, that movie will never be made, since we already got a sh**house adaptation of that story that had nothing in common with the comic other than the title.

    I would LOVE to see Gosling play Flash. For what it's worth, he hinted once that he'd be interested in the role if they ever brought it to the big screen.

    And I think frequent Gosling collaborator Nicholas Winding Refn said he might be interested in doing a Flash movie. I could be wrong about that one though. I know he did express interest in helming Wonder Woman.

    I really like that rumor if its true. It's been 2 years since the events of MOS. It's reasonable for Barry to have become the Flash within that timeframe.

    If it's true I'd put money on it playing out with Bruce looking at that CCTV footage in the Batcave.

    Are we casting Barry's Flash or Wally's Flash when it comes to Aaron Paul?

    I know I'm in the minority but combining universes doesn't have to be this big complex thing.
    You don't have to constantly talk about what happens in the movies or other shows unless it effects that particular story and sometimes having a core narrative can allow them to do cool things that appear relevant.
    Sure, AoS seemed to take a while to click but just bc one doesn't quite work, doesn't mean that's always the case.


    That being said, I'm fully expecting separate universes even if I don't necessarily want it. I'm just glad I'm finally seeing these characters on screen together.

    Yes.

    I'd say Barry but he can work with Wally.

    With Barry he can pull it off I mean look at this.

    I have not read the Nu52 is Barry portrayed as the comic relief. Even though I can see that happening since it seems the Flash suddenly has Platic Man's role now.

    GL and Flash provide some comic relief in the New 52, but Hal seems to be more of the jokester on the team.

    Barry's a pretty lighthearted guy, but not really the jokester.

    Aaron Paul provided excellent comic relief in BB, but it obviously wasn't excessive. He's a really strong dramatic actor.

    I wouldn't hate it if Paul got the role, but I wouldn't be championing him like some.
