“We’re being true to the old Barry Allen science/police background… We’re being true to those origins and updating them for the 21st century. I feel like in many ways, the movie sort of is three movies in one. It’s part thriller, like forensic cool Seven/Silence of the Lambs, part superhero movie, and part sports movie, because there’s an athleticism to this character that other superheroes don’t have… And you get to see how all three of those elements inform each other and make for a better movie.”
Scriptwriter Marc Guggenheim
Barry Allen is the most interesting incarnation of Flash (he’s the one true Flash for me) and definitely deserves his own movie.
What actor would you recommend for the role? Matthew Fox, Bradley Cooper or else?
