Now if you love The Flash as much as I do, you would have been outraged at the news that Ezra Miller, a prepubescent boy who smokes weed and has black long hair and a pubic hair beard, puts on lipstick and wears dresses, was cast as Barry Allen.

Whats worst about this is that Ezra was cast over a flipping phone call, Zack Snyder just rang him up and said "Yo, wanna be Flash?"

So, since Ezra Miller is the worst possible choice for The Flash.

I'm going to give you, the best possible choice for The Flash.

Ryan Gosling for Barry Allen/The Flash!

Ryan Gosling is the absolute perfect candidate for The Flash.

Let's look at the facts.

Barry Allen/The Flash is a police/forensic scientist with a strong build and blonde hair, who is very charming and funny, he is a man of science and isn't afraid to speak for himself.

And Ryan is exactly that.

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)

In this movie, Ryan shows the exact personality of Barry, great comedic timing and an absolute charmer.
And also shows he has a strong build in a couple of shirtless scenes.

Fracture (2007)

In Fracture, Ryan plays a lawyer who has to prove that a cunning man (played wonderfully by Anthony Hopkins) killed his wife.

The whole movie reminded me of a Trickster-Flash story, just without the costumes and powers.

And even though Ryan is a lawyer in it, as opposed to a forensic scientist like Barry is, he does it fantastically.

So what I'm getting at is that in Fracture, Ryan proved he could play the career side of Barry Allen, where in Crazy, Stupid, Love he shows the personality.

Drive (2011)

Now here is my last and final point.

In Drive, Ryan shows he has what it takes to be a superhero, he plays a silent man, out to bring justice to the bad guys.

And when you put all of these performances together, the personality and looks from Crazy, Stupid, Love and the heroic side from Drive, and the career side from Fracture.

You would get the most comic book accurate superhero performance... Of all time.
