The Flash movie’s been in a state of development Hell for quite some time now, but it’s looking like there is light at the end of the rather dark tunnel.
Thankfully, Warner Bros, Pictures has hired Andy Muschietti, director of It and It Chapter Two, to helm the project and rewrite the script a bit.
So, this means that we might be speeding to the end of that long and dark tunnel, Flash-style.
This Flash movie has had a whole load of directors and writers attached to it. We’ve seen the likes of Rick Famuyiwa be attached to direct the film.
There’s also been the likes of Seth Grahame-Smith, best known for Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies attached to the movie.
He ended up writing the first script for The Flash movie, yet I don’t think they’re using the script anymore.
It’s been a tough road for The Flash, and we’re now hearing that this movie could feature a female version of Reverse-Flash.
Could Reverse-Flash in The Flash movie be a woman?
This news comes from a Reddit post, in which the user posted a synopsis of the movie and it reveals that Warner Bros. Pictures is looking at casting a woman in the role.
Barry Allen has the power of super speed, and fights daily against villains in Central City, but that doesn’t stop him from suffering for his mother’s death, but everything changes when he meets a mysterious woman, named Eobard Thawne, who teaches Barry a way to change his mother’s tragic fate.
The post then goes on to highlight that Jessica Chastain is in talks to star as Reverse-Flash, which I do actually like.
Chastain’s already got a good working relationship with Muschietti, and I know she’d be great in a comic book movie.
I also quite like the idea of having Ezra Miller’s Flash go up against a female Reverse-Flash. I’m pretty sure he’ll be super awkward.
What do you think? Should Reverse-Flash be a woman? Let us know in the comments below.
