Ryan Reynolds recently talked to MTV about his often rumored casting as The Flash.
“‘The Flash’ isn’t dead at all. There’s talk of it being a JLA [Justice League of America] movie, the Justice League having them all together. And then there’s other talk of doing a ‘Flash’ movie with [director] Shawn Levy,” Reynolds told MTV. “[it] might, yeah. I don’t really know how much I’m allowed to talk about that stuff. But I’m sure they’ll figure out something. It’s no secret that they have a JLA script and it’s a project that’s in development – the contents of which, who knows.
You know, there's only so many comic book adaptations that work on the big screen, and I don't think this is one of them.
Plus, I campaigned hard for the role of The Flash. I told them, "I don't need the red suit, all I need's a trenchcoat and a boner."
