The Flash will likely be the most difficult movie in the DC universe for fans to swallow, because of how popular and successful the TV show is. Warner Bros has every intention of adapting the scarlett speedster to the big screen, and out of all the Justice League cameos in Batman v Superman, it was The Flash (Ezra Miller) who was given the most.
We’re less than two years away from The Flash solo movie, and already some rumors regarding castings have surfaced. Heroic Hollywood is hearing that Warner Bros is already looking to fill the roles of five major supporting characters. Furthermore, there are details (via. ScreenRant) on how every character intends on being adapted for the DC universe. If you currently watch the TV show on CW, then you’ll be familiar with the names below.
- Iris West – is described in the breakdown as having Christiane Amanpour’s brains and Carrie Bradshaw’s style. An overcaffinated doe. A reporter at The Central City Citizen. Actresses are currently testing for this part.
- Eobard Thawne – is described in the breakdown as Central City’s Bill Gates. The smartest man in the room and he suffers from advanced degenerative disease like Stephen Hawking. Thawne is confined to a chair.
- Fred Chyre – is described in the breakdown as a gruff detective who first meets Barry at the scene of a crime. Now they’re colleagues and the closest thing Barry has to a friend. Chryre is investigating the unusual death of someone at Thawne Laboratories
- Len Snart (a.k.a. Captain Cold) – is described in the breakdown as being ex-military and turns out to be working for Thawne. Have a feeling he is the muscle the way Anatoli Knyazev (aka the KGBEAST) was the muscle for Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
- Jay Garrick – is described in the breakdown as being a former Central University professor who was fired for fringe science, and was working on the speed force program. Supposedly his role is just a cameo.
There’s no doubt that fans will already have a version of the characters they expect to see on the big screen. As the details above are suggesting, castings for these roles are already happening. Considering we’re two years away from The Flash solo-movie, the earliest we could get some updates is later on this summer.
Are you a fan of The Flash show on TV, and does these character descriptions make you excited for a solo movie?
