    Welcome to the official Reverse-Flash thread.
    But who do you think will be?
    Professor Zoom, Zoom or Daniel West?

    Right now I'm more interested in which look they could go with for the character in a cinematic version than who they cast for the role.

    I've always liked Zoom's power set more than Professor Zoom's. It's more interesting to me. At the same time I also feel that character wise Professor Zoom makes for a better foil than Zoom. None of that played out "friend turned enemy" mumbo jumbo just straight up selfish villainy which is a great contrast to Barry Allen's selfless heroism. So he gets my vote.

    I'd want Professor Zoom but with Zoom powers.

    Zoom's powers are based around time manipulation, he slows down time relative to himself. Prof has his own Negative Speed Force and his powers are gottagofast like everyone else.

    From wikipedia
    That's why I think as opposed to the Flash, this Reverse Flash is the best to contrast the scarlet speedster IMO.

    Zoom has cool powers, but i prefer Eobard. i'd go with a Flashpoint Paradox type story for the movie. alternate timelines are super interesting

    Too soon for that.
    The show already has an alternate timeline, original time line has Barry living and growing with his parents, and them attending his marriage to Iris Russel.

    In terms of casting choice, I was thinking something along the lines of Bradley Cooper or Eddie Redmayne. Guys a good actor, however, I'm not sure if he looks indimating (However Eobard did not look that intimidating in the comics as a regular person)

    May I ask a question?
    there is something that confuses me a lot...

    to use the cosmic threadmill, we have to run on it...
    so, if zolomon was paraplegic, how did he use the threadmill???!!!

    Looks like whole spidey cast will get recast. What about Dane Dehaan as RF?

    That's kinda of interesting as a choice. Not one I would make but now that you mention it I see how that could work.

    Zoom's powers seem to have some frustrating limitations. For example, the regular speedsters can run say 100ml very quickly both in terms of 'normal' time (viewed by normal people) and themselves (even though mentally they can react fast enough).

    For Zoom, that's got to be the most boring and tiring trip ever, since for him he's taking a 100ml jog like anyone else trying it. To us he can do it quickly because he slows time, but to himself he's still taking +10 'hours' or however long even the best marathon runner would take to do 100ml...

    Am I understanding his powers right?

    Seconded to the extreme. Redmayne for Eobard.

    He steals a car and drives to where he needs to go. Before turning his powers "off" he hides the car and then pretends he ran the whole way. It's what bad guys do.

    My pick for RF, at least before Ben became Batman was Casey Affleck.

    Going to be completely honest. I'm guilty because Ethan Hawke reminds me of Eobord Thawne from Flash TV series. :(
