    Maybe Lucas Hedges or Noah Centineo.

    But if they start from scratch, maybe with an older Barry, then I think John Krasinski would be great.

    Maybe Wally will be the lead. Who knows

    Wouldn’t mind it, but he didn’t sound at all interested in a superhero gig when he was doing the rounds for his new show.

    Lucas Hedges and Logan Lerman have been suggested. Good choices. I prefer the former. I think he can be really good.
    Both his seriousness and his looks would be perfect for the role.

    But please, come up with a new suit and not that Iron Man esque armour.

    I would go with Logan Lerman or Dylan O Brien or Dennis Quaid & Meg Ryan's son Jack Quaid for Barry Allen

    I realize the first post specifically mentioned them, but these three really are the best options at the moment

    Jack Quaid
    Dylan O’Brien
    Billy Magnussen

    Please, not Dylan O'Brien. I can't stand the actor.
    Not since a group of people defended him as a contender for Spider-Man.
    I'm glad that he didn't get the part. Keep him miles away from Flash, please.

    Boom: Happy for him to finally get the big break. However, now he will get fancasted in everything just because of that :)
    McKay is a decent choice for Barry Allen, to be honest, but my vote goes to Lucas Hedges.

    Frank Dillane? He has the same dark element to him as Ezra.

    We need an upbeat, comedic Barry. Jack Quaid is really the guy. It feels obvious.

    Agree with being lighter. But he should not be jokey or funny.
    In the TV series, there are lot of serious and dramatic moments. The character itself have become a beacon of hope. Almost the role Superman had in older days.
    Some of the other characters play the comedic role. That would be enough.

    Wally is simply a more interesting character than Barry so I’m ok with Barry being an amalgamation of Barry, Wally and Bart. Flash being the comic relief of the Justice League really works.

    If they still want a black haired young energetic actor that has insane acting chops to be wasted as Barry Allen, Timothee Chalamet. I can see him playing that same version of Flash quite well and better.
