The Flash’s first solo film has been having a lot of behind-the-scenes trouble from the constant change in screenwriters and directors. From Chris Miller & Phil Lord to Seth-Grahame Smith to Rick Famuyiwa, it seems the film is finally starting to take shape as at SDCC ’17 it was announced that the solo film will indeed be Flashpoint. And with that, who better than the rumored favorite Robert Zemeckis, aka the director behind Back to the Future. But for now, all that is confirmed is Ezra Miller, Kiersey Clemons, and Billy Crudup as Barry Allen, Iris West, and Henry Allen.
CONFIRMED – Kiersey Clemons has joined Justice League and the Flash solo as Iris!
The poll included Allison Scagliotti, Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Lail, Emily Browning, Emma Watson, Georgie Henley, Halston Sage, Imogen Poots, Jane Levy, Katie Stevens, Molly Quinn, Odeya Rush, Olivia Cooke, Saoirse Ronan, Sarah Hyland, Zoey Deutch – with Emma Watson at #1.
KID FLASH (Wally West)
So here’s the thing with fan-casting Wally. Kiersey is actually biracial (half-white, half-black). So Wally could potentially be of either race (or mixed as well); if the movie universe acknowledges this. So to be fair, I’ve included 2 fan-casts for Wally. Can’t wait to see who they cast!
Since Ezra is young (at least among the JL members), I tried to find Wally picks younger or the same age as him. I mean, he could be older/same age as Barry if Iris’ sibling was old enough. It’s totally possible, but I don’t think they’d do that. We’ll see if they follow the CW’s show by making him Iris’ brother instead. Anyways, I don’t think Wally will be getting his powers yet. Or at least won’t be suiting up for a while…
*UPDATE – Gregg Sulkin removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways.Brenton Thwaites removed due to casting in the Titans series.*
Again, don’t know the exact age they’re looking for in Wally. So I tried to vary from younger to about Ezra’s age…
Obviously we’ll see Nora show up in Flash’s solo film as part of Barry’s origin story involves her mysterious death and murderer and his father being framed for it. She should be younger than Billy Crudup (who plays Henry Allen) as the murder occurred when Barry was young…
I don’t know if we’ll see Patty, at least in the first Flash movie, but it’s still fun to fan cast, right? Patty should be about the same age as Barry and Iris, maybe a bit older. She is on the more petite side, so that plus acting ability factored into these picks. As well as outside (fan) ideas. Let me know who you could see as Patty!
*UPDATE – Virginia Gardner removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways. Skyler Samuel removed due to casting in The Gifted.*
…THE ROGUES (Villains)
So it’s rumored that the main villain(s) of the film will be The Rogues (group of villains). I’m not surprised to hear this as individually, it wouldn’t be very fun to watch them battle Flash. But if they partnered up, or got the whole group, it could prove to be a great challenge for Flash. For now, I can leave out Captain Boomerang since Jai Courtney is playing the character in Suicide Squad (2016). Maybe we’ll get to see the Rogues break him out of Arkham. Then again, he doesn’t play well with others.
(CITIZEN) ABRA KADABRA
The Flash has some interesting foes in the Rogues. I’m curious to if we’ll see Abra, though, because of the potential confusion with him and then the Zatarras.
CAPTAIN COLD (Leonard Snart)
Captain Cold was a bit hard to fan-cast, especially since Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold on The Flash) is who I keep picturing. Now recent rumors says that Leonard and his sister, Lisa, will be the main villains/Rogues of the Flash solo movie. We’ll see if that turns out to be true!
*UPDATE – Alan Ritchson removed due to casting as Hawk in Titans.*
GOLDEN GLIDER (Lisa Snart)
Golden Glider wasn’t too hard to fan-cast. All that is really important is that she resembles closely to whoever is Captain Cold (and vice versa) and can act (like a criminal). These ladies can all kick ass and could be a great potential Golden Glider.
*UPDATE – Amber Heard removed due to casting as Mera in Justice League and Aquaman. Alice Eve removed due to casting in Marvel’s Iron Fist.*
HEAT WAVE (Mick Rory)
Like Captain Cold, it’s hard to imagine someone other than who they cast in The Flash as Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell). I tried to find actors who could pull off his brash attitude as well as pulled ideas from others’ fan cast.
MIRROR MASTER (Sam Scudder)
Okay, a fan-cast on Mirror Master is a bit hard since there’s more than one. The original is Sam Scudder, but there’s also Evan McCulloch. Just judging by the character choices so far, DC is going with the first incarnation. So this is strictly based on Scudder – perhaps if they wanted to differ from the CW show they’d go with McCulloch but we’ll have to wait and see.
PIED PIPER (Hartley Rathaway)
I think it’d be interesting if they introduced Hartley first as a friend of Wally’s…But however he’s introduced, he’ll probably be one of the youngest of the Rogues. Not completely sure on that though.
THE TOP (Roscoe Dillon)
Again, I think it’d be better to introduce some of the Rogues together rather than just individually in a Flash film. Top has an interesting backstory, though, but even then his abilities would better work if paired off with another Rogue.
There are 2 Tricksters, James Jesse and Axel Walker. They could go with the first incarnation or the newer one. I don’t know. So this fan-cast is kind of a combination of the two, since I don’t know what they will do in the movie universe.
WEATHER WIZARD (Mark Mardon)
I don’t know how many members of the Rogues we will actually see in the first Flash film…but why not fan cast each one just in case? Again, some ideas are from other fan casts and some I had to come up with!
*UPDATE – Tyler Hoechlin removed due to casting as Superman in the CW’s Supergirl. Ben Barnes removed due to casting in Iron Fist. Joe Manganiello removed due to casting as Deathstroke.*
REVERSE FLASH (Eobard Thawne)
…or Professor Zoom. Whichever they decide to go with, I’m looking specifically at Eobard Thawne. Tom Cavanagh was fantastic as Eobard/Harrison/Reverse Flash in the CW show and it’s hard to see someone else portray the character. But someone has to. (Plus, if Infinite Crisis happens…) Let me know your vote in the poll!
*UPDATE – Michael Rosenbaum removed due to casting in GotG Vol. 2. Jude Law removed due to casting in Captain Marvel.*
ZOOM (Hunter Zolomon)
I decided it’d be fun to fan-cast all the Speedsters (good and bad) in DC…I’ll leave Wally, Reverse-Flash, and Zoom in the sections above, and the rest will go here.
Jay Garrick, Bart Allen, Trajectory, Jesse Quick, Impulse, Max Mercury (The original Quicksilver), Johnny Quick, The Rival, Black Flash, Reverse-Flash (Daniel West)
