So with all the future DC movies planned, the one I'm most excited for would have to be the The Flash. The fastest character in all of comics, the Flash brings a lot to the table so, here are 5 reasons it will be awesome!

1. First standalone film

Like Wonder Woman and Cyborg, Flash will also be getting his own standalone film but, the Flash is much more special in my opinion. This is a guy who can time travel. We've seen the Flash on TV before but never in a movie, so to see how the TV show compares to the movie when it comes to special effects would be insane.

2. The movie version will show what it really means to have super-speed

Now, I know what you're thinking. The TV version shows us exactly what it means to have super-speed. That's true, and not true, at the same time. In the TV show, Flash isn't at his full speed yet and is still learning how to go faster. The movie version, on the other hand, won't have two seasons to develop the Flash's skill over time. He'll learn more and go faster in the two hours we see him in the film, and no doubt he'll be the fastest version of the character we've ever seen on screen.

3. Speed/Powers

Next we have his abilities. The Flash is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful heroes in all of comics and is not one to be underestimated. He can run on water, create after-images of himself, time travel, and even run on clouds. Will the Flash do all of this in his movie? Probably not, but to see what they do with the character's powers, and how they differ from previous versions, should be epic.

4. Villains

I'm sure everyone knows by now that a movie is only as good as its villain, and the Flash has some pretty ruthless ones. One of the most famous being Reverse Flash.

The Reverse Flash is known to be just as fast as the Flash himself, which makes him a top contender for the movie - and a good choice, if you ask me. Not to mention, he absolutely hates the Flash.

5. Underrated Actor

And finally, we have the underrated actor. Much like Robert Downey Jr., Heath Ledger, and even Ben Affleck, Ezra Miller is a very underestimated choice when it comes to him portraying the Flash, and I think that's why he'll do great. For example, Robert Downey Jr. is one of the most beloved actors, ever. That could very well happen with Ezra Miller and that's why this movie will be awesome.
