GOYER TALKS ABOUT THE FLASH MOVIE

In speaking to the New York Daily News (June 12th edition), Batman Begins screenwriter David Goyer talked about his next superhero challenge: a film based on DC’s Flash.

In an extensive interview, Goyer told the News of DC’s speedster:

"I'm writing and directing 'The Flash' next," says Goyer, referring to the DC Comics character who appeared in 1940 and is therefore almost as old as Superman (1938) and Batman (1939). Writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert teamed on The Flash's debut.

"Fans know there's been more than one Flash over the years," Goyer adds. "There's been a lot of speculation and rumor, but both Barry Allen and Wally West will be in this movie."

Goyer is referring to the The Flash's "normal" identity. He started as Jay Garrick in 1940. Allen took over in 1956 and Wallace (introduced as Kid Flash in 1959) in 1986.

"We're going to go into the 'Speed Force' and a lot of the cosmic aspects of the character from the more recent past," Goyer says. "Trust me, we're going to do a lot more than have the Flash run on water and create vortexes.

"I have a guy from M.I.T. helping me with all of this. We're going to be playing with relativity, Doppler effects and all kinds of things like that. Audiences will be amazed."

(Sounds cool! I suppose we'll hear about casting soon.)

David (Goyer) did say that he turned in the script for the Flash to producers and the studio will get the script by the end of the month. He still hopes to have Ryan Reynolds attached to the project.

Is it too early to say "woohoo"?

2008 is the year for Batman Begins' sequel.
2009 is possibly the year for a Superman sequel.
So either we see this in 2007 or 2010. Unless WB allows more than 1 DC movie released per year.

Just guessing :)

Ryan Reynolds on The Flash

Source: http://www.superherohype.com

December 15, 2006

Although The Flash has been announced with David Goyer attached to direct, Ryan Reynolds, who has been rumored to play the speedy superhero, still does not know what's going on.

ComingSoon.net/SuperheroHype.com caught up with Reynolds at the press day for his new film Smokin' Aces and here's what the jovial and hilarious actor had to say.

"It's a hundred and eight billion dollar movie if they do it. I don't know how that stuff works and I don't really get involved with it. I think if they do it, they're going to see it through the eyes of Wally West and its inanimate world. I can hear people falling asleep while I'm talking about this. I honestly don't know. It's just such a huge undertaking. I'd love to wear a red unitard sometime, but I can do that on my own."

You can see Reynolds in Smokin' Aces on January 26.

It's about time Flash gets a movie, maybe GL is next? Or how about a Justice League movie? I would see it.

Good to see that there's at least something happening with the Flash. Maybe someday this will come out of development hell with DC's other movies and get made.

Then again, seeing how slow they are with everything else...

Yeah, it seems like forever between when the script is written and when the film actually starts being filmed.

wow, I'm gonna need another print cartridge...Thanks for those, I’m have read a few of those Superman and batman ones, but the back to the future and Plastic man are news to me! :shock:

as for the Flash news whoo hooo, lets hope they fast track that sucker. I think Ryan Reynolds would be a good choice for Wally, assuming they do the film about him. heck they could even play off the old TV show and boost DVD sales a bit...

BTTF is pretty neat to see how much it did change (the time machine is an old refrigerator?!?).

I also have a couple of links to unproduced Indiana Jones scripts on the main page article on Indy IV.
