Bradley Cooper as The Flash?

It’s certainly a possibility given Bradley Cooper’s high star status right now. Like Ryan Reynolds before him, I’m pretty sure Cooper can, at this point, get attached to any movie he desires as long as he even remotely expresses peripheral interest in it.

Word from Moviehole (citing unnamed sources) is that Cooper is the frontrunner to play the Scarlett Speedster in a big-budget, live-action version of the D.C. comic book character who can run so fast that, I believe at one point, he actually outran Death.

Of course, it’s still early days for a “Flash” movie, given that a script has yet to be turned in (one is expected by this December), and the studio has yet to officially greenlit such a potentially very expensive production. Reynolds has long expressed his desire to play Wally West, one of the Flashes, but with his current schedule, adding another potential movie franchise is obviously a non-starter.

So, Bradley Cooper as The Flash? Could be worst…

    DC/WB MAKE…IT…SO….. Bradley Cooper as Welly West aka THE FLASH and Chris Pine as Prof.Zoom aka REVERSE FLASH.(Barry and Wally can change villains don’t have to be cannon).

  • ULIK

    They can make it so that Prof.Zoom is older than Wally West by 20 years but can reverse his aging process which is why he looks younger than Wally.

  • Romeo Garcia

    Cooper as Wally West Flash yes…Barry Allen not so much. I can see them going with either truthfully for a movie now that Barry is back, but then again Wally is the Flash most have know for the last twenty years. Either way this is starting to peak my itnterest.

    I don’t know much about Cooper, but I’m just glad we’re getting some possibilities on who might play the character. It’s gotta be someone who’s not super-serious.

    @Superhero Legacy, I concur with you Sir! You hit it spot on. There is a similarity between B.Coop and Ryan reynolds in that they are both very versatile actors who are able to convey the comical,satyrical, complex, serious characters and action scenes. I truly hope that B.Coop gets this gig as The Flash and that we’ll see him share the screen with RR as GL and The Flash one day.
