Which Version Of The Flash Runs With JUSTICE LEAGUE??

I am – Hercules!! Barry Allen is alive and still the fastest man on Earth in George Miller’s “Justice League of America,” according to UGO fixture Patrick Sauriol! Slightly startling news, as Barry (the silver-age Flash) been dead for decades and had nothing to do with the recent comic-book Brother Eye arc on which the movie appears to be based. For a generation of younger comic-book fans (and fans of the animated “Justice League”), it’s Barry’s successor and nephew, Wally West, who has long worn the Flash’s crimson cowl. So what goes on here? Maybe the movie deals with Wally inheriting the costume following a grisly Barry misadventure? And what would Jay Garrick make of it all? Read all of Sauriol’s story here.

    For some it might be blasphemy but

    by hank henshaw

    Barry Allen<Wally West. Also, as far as JLA goes, Hal Jordan<John Stewart or Kyle Rayner. I don´t know if they are going to go with the Silver Age versions of all these characters (I imagine they won´t do that for Batman), but that would mean the character dynamics wouldn´t be quite as interesting, IMO.

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 8:54 a.m. CST

    Wally should be in it, at least...

    by stones_throw

    He's one of DC's best characters without doubt, and he fits the "young" Flash they're going for. I suppose it makes sense to start with Barry Allen, whose death might establish the threat for the JLA, but then they've got to explain how Wally got his powers too...just seems like unnecessary work.

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 8:55 a.m. CST

    by mrfan

    Fans would be complaining. Part of their nature and part of the fun. I enjoy hearing all the multiple ideas that pop up from everyone whether it be casting or the plot to be. I for one am really curious as to how this will turn out. I never thought that George Miller would even do a superhero movie much less one on this scale. It will be intersting to see what will turn up on the big screen.

    Kids LOVE The Flash...

    by www.revyou.tv

    That's right - he was the most popular character on the animated "Justice League Unlimited" and sold the most merchandise. But Barry Allen? On the animated show it was Wally West and the studio should want to build on that. George Miller might have made MAD MAX, but he also made HAPPY FEET... While comic book fans might get a kick out of a JL movie, it's doubtful that regular audiences will be able to buy-in to this superhero team up, especially since all the characters are individually iconic (as opposed to FF or X-Men where the characters are defined by the team). Prediction - this movie floppith...

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 10:10 a.m. CST

    Why not

    by Series7

    Just have Will Farrell and his gang of followers do this movie, because at least it would be funny, and Adam McKay seems to have a awesome sunt team working with him now. I mean does anyone really take JLA seriously? Will Farrell as the Flash, Vince Vaughn as Batman, Stiller as Superman, Owen Wilson or Jenean Garafolo as Wonder Women (which ever one can be more bitchy and depressed at the time), John C. Reilly or Sacha Baron Cohen as Aquaman, Tracy Morgan or Micheal Clark Duncan as Green Arrow, Adam Sandler as Lex Luthor, Michael Jai White as Doomsday (that could work in a real movie as well), Obviously Christopher Walken as Solomon Grundy, throw in some a shit ton of Cameos with people from the Cartoon like: Clancy Brown Mark Hamill Ron Perlman James Remar John C. McGinley J.K. Simmons Robert Englund Jeffrey Jones Udo Kier Tom Sizemore (from prison) Keith David Nathan Fillion Julie Bowen That movie would be fucking amazingly funny and you know it.

    Maybe this is some kind of licensing problem...

    by Kid Z

    ... Like, they got the rights to do Wally in the animation DC-verse, but they have to use Barry in live action? It was Barry in the old Flash TV show, after all, even though he had a lot of Wally's characteristics. At least they aren't doing a composite GL like in that godawful, unaired Justice League TV pilot from the 90s. You know, where GL was a pilot named Kyle Raynor but wore Guy Gardner's old uniform? Christ did that thing suck... Flash was Barry in that, too, except he was unemployed and crashing on other people's couches... JL headquarters were in some suburban house... GL couldn't fly... J'onn J'onzz was fat and played by David Ogden Stiers (Major Winchester from M*A*S*H)... and, it had Fire and Ice (DC's most worthless characters). Naturally the FX sucked, but the costume designs were even more ludicrous... no one, I mean NO ONE... in real life... looks good in brightly-colored spandex.

    on Comics2film.com. it was up earlier, a link to a Patrick Sauriol blog. said the movie starts with everyone at a funeral except batman, but he's not the one who's dead. it says The Flash but not which flash. Then it cuts back 5 days, Barry Allen is there. I'm guessing he dies and then Wally becomes the flash

    makes sense; they are the only heros with built-in replacements, Hal and Wally. I bet Manhunter gets brainwashed or some crap that always happens to Manhunter, and he kills Flash, and then the "Empire" moment comes when you find out GL is the bad guy. Anyone want to lay $5 on that? Anyone wanna remember a cheap bet for a year and a half?

    He looks alittle boyish, doesn't he? He must have really chased this part though he also read for Supes in SR from what I have read. At least he's over thirty, no lets get a 40-ish batman and we're all set. The rest is up to Miller and the Cast, if the script is good and the suites shut the fuck up, we may get a good movie. Everybody just chill out, be patient, don't go insane: its just a movie. If it gets screwed up restart in a few years ala Batman Begins. Tomorrow is another day bitches.

    This sounds pretty awesome actually.

    by Reel American Hero

    From that script review over at the other site this sounds very promising to be an awesome movie. It sounds like a sequal to get right into the meat of the action and dropping the getting the heroes together/origins nonsense. And if they do go with the Barry Allen as The Flash with Wally West inheriting the title, they wouldn't neccessarily need to explain how Wally got similar powers, though that could be done in a line or two of dialogue. As a comic can I feel this could be one of the better comic movies that are coming out in the next year or two.

    by Brians Life

    George, You have yet to make one film that I would put on the bad movie level of Brett Ratner, or Michael Bay or Eli Roth or any of the hacks that are popular due to the idiocy of the American movie going public. With that said, just do me one favor: DO NO LISTEN TO ANY OF THE INFORMATION/SUGGESTIONS/NITPICKS OF ANYONE ON THIS TALKBACK...and I suppose that includes me. Which does invalidate this little letter. But, oh well. And this goes for ALL OF YOU, don't listen to US. It's probably the worst thing you can do as an artist.

He moves back to the U.S. to seek fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle a rift between Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player Darren Roanoke and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke's wife starts dating L.A. Kings star Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake) out of revenge, sending her husband into a major professional skid -- to the horror of the teams' owner Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer). Pitka must return the couple to marital nirvana and get Roanoke back on his game so the team can break the 40-year-old "Bullard Curse" and win the Stanley Cup.

    That's why he isn't Flash in this movie.<br> Despite the fact that fans overwhelmingly want him in the role.<br> Because WB doesn't give a shit about the quality of this movie.

    by rev_skarekroe

    Well, duh. Movie studios don't give a shit about the quality of ANY movies. It's entirely about whether or not said movie will make a profit. If you ever think otherwise you're just setting yourself up for disappointment.

    I just got confirmation from a reliable source that Wally is also in the movie, and that my theories regarding the Flash situation are correct. "I have the script and read it; both Wally and Barry are heavily featured in the film, and are the best written characters," says the source, who does not work for Warner Bros.

    Legacy has always been a strong DC theme and it's nice to know they have a character where those themes can be examined, in this film or in the inevitable Flash spin off. You know, of course, this means they'll probably bring back Barry in the comics as well.

    3 franchises is too much

    by samurai sark

    What is the point of creating a Justice League franchise, while simultaneously producing separate Superman AND Batman franchises? It doesn't make any sense to have 2 Batmen, and 2 Supermen. The idea of 3 franchises reeks of commericalism and is ridiculous to fans of these great characters.////////////////////// If a "Justice League" movie *must* be made, then why not use the failing "Superman" franchise to introduce the characters? Since Superman is the leader of the League, it makes sense for his series to chronicle the assembly of his team. Writers can expand on why certain heroes are chosen to join, while others are not. ////////////////////// The process of assembling the team should not be squeezed into one movie. By developing the story over a series of films, it gives time for audiences to relate and become attached to the lesser known heroes (and heroines), while allowing Batman to finish his solo series before being introduced. ////////////////////// 3 franchises is too much.

    What hurts the Flash is that damn costume. I could live with them doing away with it. It's cool in the comics, on screen crappy. Remember the short lived Flash TV series? I would prefer to see a Green Lantern movie. Marvel has at least whored most of their comics into movies. While DC, wants to take all of these proprieties and combine them into one. No one is going to know who some of these characters are. Or have any attachment to them. To the average movie fan of Barry Allen dies, so what?
