    Tg11: Should we go for the same Ezra character with another actor? Or should the new actor do his own take?
    If next Flash should be based on a previous one, my vote goes to Grant Gustin's version. It's far better than what we got in Justice League.

    Of course Lucas Till could suit Barry Allen. He has the look and the vibe.

    I would go for a mix of the Ezra character and Gustin's version...so someone who can be funny, sarcastic and awkward but someone who can also be serious too

    How do you want the character to be in terms of lightness and seriousness?
    Who should play him?

    I wish Anton Yelchin were still with us. :csad:

    Not just to play Flash, mind you, but it’s definitely in the top 5...

    For me I want someone who is lighthearted like Ezra was but someone who can actually be serious but for me I already know my top 5 choices for who should play a re-cast Barry Allen in the DCEU

    5- Logan Lerman
    4- Lucas Till
    3- KJ Apa
    2- Lucas Hedges
    1- Jack Quaid

    Still sticking with Jack Quaid as my re-cast for Barry Allen/Flash

    Tg11: Logan Lerman? Well perhaps.

    K.J. Apa should be Wally West on Titans

    With the rumor that Iris West is to be recast, I nominate Imogen Poots with Jeremy Irvine as my Barry Allen.

    Jeremy Irvine would be interesting because he's lesser known and Imogen is a star but not as well known

    Still want Hedges or Till for the role. Atleast the latter isn't against playing supereroes.

    Then Tg11 had Logan Lerman on his shortlist among others. He's not someone I would personally root for that much, he might be more Cyclops material, but if he gets the to be Flash I could still be glad for it.

    All three could work next to Imogen Poots

    He would’ve been great for The Flash.

    How about Paul Mescal from Hulu's Normal People?

    How about Ansel Elgort? He hasn't done much of note since Baby Driver, but he's the lead in Spielberg's upcoming West Side Story, so expect his stock to rise again.

    Also, speaking of Baby Driver, how amazing would it be to get running scenes like this.

    Barry in the comics is older. Ezra’s Barry is all Wally West. Maybe Muschietti will cast more traditionally? Who knows.
    Someone from It, maybe Jay Ryan.

    My mind has changed a bit. I hated Ezra’s performance in the theatrical cut. Hated it. But I’m open to my mind being changed with the Snyder Cut. And I think he should get his own solo film. A recast would be a mistake in my opinion. Just build upon what has already been established.the choking incident was weird but not crazy enough to require a recast now that I think about it.

    I’m ready to give Ezra a fair shot. I hope he pulls it off. Wasn’t a big fan of his performance so far though, tbh.

    Beat me to it, I'd like Andrew Garfield for the Flash! I think of an older Marty Mcfly/CSI Crime scene investigator. Aside from maybe Jesse as Lex, I really didnt like Zack's casting of Ezra for the Flash. He was thinking Peter Parker, but if he stuck closer to the source material, Barry was an OLDER Peter Parker; the same age as Supes at least.

    Yeah, I think Garfield could have worked.

    Someone getting fired for hate speach and another guy getting away with assault is just weird. Since when is saying terrible things worse than choking someone in the street?

    It's just kinda BS to me.

    Unless Miller was charged with assault, which he wasn't, and considering the person in-question has since deleted the tweets of this event and asked folks to leave her alone, there's nothing BS about what was a BS incident to begin with.

    Only spread like wildfire because Twitter being Twitter decided to try and 'cancel' someone else, but within a day or so, got bored and moved on. Especially once, again, no charged were filed and Miller was never under investigation. But if people want to believe a...what, 20-second video? That cuts out without all of the details, then by all means.
