How quickly we forget that the best part of Goyer's own Blade Trinity was a ripped, cocky action man whose biggest role had been Van Wilder. Be not so quick to judge!

If Ryan Reynolds was up for anything, he should play Fletch...
personally i don't hold blade trinity up there with must see comic book movies.

I didn't know they were making The Flash, but it appears that Ryan Reynolds will play the lead. At least from the sites I checked out tonight.

Seann William Scott plays himself in every role he is cast in now. He is a parody of himself.
I vote for Ryan.

I love Ryan Reynolds...but the same thing you just said about Scott easily applies to Reynolds.

Sean can act,it is just that he gets the same type of role each time.Meanwhile Ryan has been to long on TV shows and just now started to make movies and So far he got 2 more major releases coming up.He is a very good actor,just hope he makes the right decision in picking his roles.

Hmmmm, the flash can move faster than the speed of light? I guess we will have to assume that he contains no mass. Even if he only moved at half the speed of life, the time dilation would be troubling. He would appear to age much quicker than everyone else.

Generally, I can suspend belief for movies, so I hope they come up with some nifty explanation for how he can move faster than light. They should be able to come up with something. Hopefully they do. Otherwise it is like watching a war movie where all the Nazis are African American. It may be a great story, but it will still be tough to get beyond the fact that it is obvious crap.

wait.. wait. wait... Speed of LIFE? what the hell kind of drugs are you on? I mean really. It's a super hero flick. They could bullshit how fast he moves for all I care. Speed force is a tricky subject as it is. Just accept it as a sort of comic fact and enjoy it. Sort of like in the mummy 2 where the dude runs faster than the suns rays of light.

That's not what Batman: The Movie (1966) would lead me to believe. Penguin's henchmen disintigrated!

Well, he better generate a warp field around him. That's all I"m saying.

How do you mean he would age faster than everyone? Wouldn't he age slower, since the faster you travel, the slower time goes by.

I just read on Superherohype that Goyer's out of this one and the new director is the director of Night at the Museum.

News 'Flash': Levy to helmBy Borys Kit

Feb 5, 2007

Shawn Levy has stepped on board to direct Warner Bros. Pictures' "The Flash," the big-screen adaptation of the DC Comics speedster hero. Levy's decision to get involved in the project is his first move since the successful release of his "Night at the Museum," a $225 million boxoffice smash.

Charles Roven and Alex Gartner are producing "Flash." It is believed that Levy will act in a producing capacity as well.

Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, the original Flash first appeared in "Flash Comics" #1 in 1940. In comics lore, there have been four incarnations of the scarlet speedster, who has remained one of DC's most popular characters. He has ability to run and move extremely fast, use superhuman reflexes and violate certain laws of physics, like time travel.

David Goyer, who co-wrote "Batman Begins" for Warners, had been attached to write, direct and produce a screen adaptation. But Goyer quietly left the project several months ago, though it was not until Friday that he announced his departure on his MySpace page.

"I am sad to say that my version of 'The Flash' is dead at WB," Goyer wrote. "The God's honest truth is that WB and myself simply couldn't agree on what would make for a cool Flash film. I'm quite proud of the screenplay I turned in. I threw my heart into it, and I genuinely think it would've been the basis of a groundbreaking film. But as of now, the studio is heading off in a completely different direction."

Sources said that Levy, who before "Museum" had been known for such comedies as "Cheaper by the Dozen" and "The Pink Panther," has no intention of making "Flash" a comedy but is aiming for a lighter movie than previous Warners comic book adaptations, such as "Batman Begins" and "Superman Returns." Goyer's "Flash" also had been dark-themed.

Levy will oversee the writing of the new draft, and it is believed elements of Goyer's script will be used in the development process.

Not a very good development... Levy doesn't fill me with inspiration.

Levy's filmography includes nothing that leads me to believe that he could pull off a comic film. After a couple of great releases in Batman Begins and Superman Returns, it looks like Warners is back to their old selves when it comes to their DC franchises (see the Wonder Woman news as well.)
