This upcoming The Flash movie has been in production for what feels like ages. We’re now hearing rumours that the film might feature Reverse-Flash.
However, it won’t feature the DC Comics villain in a brief cameo appearance. No. According to reports from We Got This Covered, Reverse-Flash is going to be the film’s main villain.
This comes after it was reported Warner Bros. Pictures is looking at Matthew McConaughey for the role.
He was previously rumoured to be up for the role of Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face, in Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
However, it’s looking like that won’t happen anymore. That said, Warner Bros. is still keen to work with McConaughey.
There have been rumours for a while that McConaughey is about to join the DC Comics movie universe, however, they haven’t found the right role for him.
Perhaps Reverse-Flash is the role he and Warner Bros. have been waiting for.
The villain is a really interesting one because he’s someone who lures Barry Allen into a false sense of security.
He first befriends the young speedster and teaches him some stuff before revealing his true nature and identity.
Could Matthew McConaughey play Reverse-Flash in The Flash movie?
Reverse-Flash’s real name is Eobard Thawn and becomes Allen’s sworn enemy.
McConaughey would be a very good choice for the role because he can do both charming and menacing.
Some people have called for a slightly younger actor to play the role.
However, I think if this film is to succeed, they need the very best talent available, and McConaughey is one of the best.
I think he and Ezra Miller would work very well together on-screen.
The film’s director, Andy Muschietti, is also someone who McConaughey might like to work with.
It feels like this is really going to happen, and it’s pretty exciting.
What do you think? Is Matthew McConaughey the right person to play Reverse-Flash in The Flash movie?
