With Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman all cast and filmed/filming, I've decided to do a fan cast for 2018's The Flash for the DCEU. Not much has been announced for The Flash in terms of story or cast but we do know Ezra Miller will be playing the titular character Barry Allen. I've chose a few characters we will most likely or possibly see in The Flash.
First off you can't have The Flash without The Wests and judging by how the tv show went and the New 52 I decided to take the same route. I chose Keke Palmer, a young actress to be Barry's love interest and Courtney B. Vance to be Joe West, Barry's adopted father.
Next you need Barry's real father Henry Allen, who is framed for the murder of Barry's mother Nora Allen. I chose Jack Coleman to portray the movie version. Supposedly Jack Coleman was suppose to play The Flash on the original tv series so I thought would be a neat nod to that.
I would choose Jennifer Connelly to play Barry's mother Nora Allen. Jennifer Connelly portrays an excellent mother figure on screen and would bring it well to the screen as Nora.
Whether or not he would appear in the first movie or at all in the DCEU is beyond me but I think it would be cool to have Jay Garrick appear in The Flash. Jay is the original Flash and would be best portrayed by an older actor, someone who could mentor Barry. I chose Mark Harmon for the role of Jay Garrick.
Every movie needs a villain and no Flash movie would be complete without Eobard Thawne, The Reverse Flash. I don't know if I would use him as the main villain for the first film but you would need him for flashbacks and possibly to setup the next film. Eobard is integral to the Flash story line and you would need someone who can play menacing and psychotic. I would like to see Aaron Eckhart don the yellow suit and play Eobard Thawne. He's a skilled actor and no stranger to DC villains having played Two-Face previously in The Dark Knight.
There you have it, my 2018 The Flash fan cast. I have some ideas for The Flash rogues that i'll probably do at a later date as well. As always i'm looking for opinions or thoughts. Hope you liked it Thanks !
