As you may know, in the year 2018 we will be getting a Flash movie starring Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Trainwreck) that will be directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Dope). In this movie, and in all of the other DCEU movies to come, we have to see some other speedsters, am I right? Of course I'm right! Now, let's take a look at a few speedsters I'd like to see and who I want to play them!
Harrison Ford as Jay Garrick
Now, before you say anything, I know that it is more than likely that Harrison Ford won't be up for this role. A boy can dream though! Ford is great at playing the wise hero role, so it'd be great so see him interact with Ezra Miller and give him advice as the retired hero we've come to love!
Taron Egerton as Wally West
Despite his age of 26, Taron Egerton is great at playing the role of the young, cocky smart mouth who doesn't back down from a fight. He proved so in Kingsman: The Secret Service. He hasn't been in much, but he has already been in larger movies with big name actors, so I'm sure he'd have no problem holding his own in the DCEU. If this were to happen though, I'd like to see him as an older, more mature Wally West.
Chloë Grace Moretz as Jesse Quick
Chloë Grace Moretz is good choice for this smart yet fun loving speedster. Chloë is no stranger to super hero roles due to the fact that she has played Hit Girl in both of the Kick-Ass movies. Most of her fans want her to star in Marvel's upcoming movie Captain Marvel, but I think she is much better suited for this role. Overall, she is a great actress who would definitely be a great addition to the DCEU!
Teddy Sears as Eobard Thawne a.k.a Reverse Flash
You may recognize Sears from CW's The Flash, where he played season 2's main antagonist Hunter Zolomon, or Zoom. He displayed in the show that he has the ability to play a dark, brooding villain who has no mercy. But, don't be fooled, this isn't the first time he's played a character like this! In the 2015 movie Curve he acted along side Julianne Hough, where he played a very brutal, messed up killer who enjoyed messing with his prey's head. If he combined his performance in The Flash with his performance in Curve, he would be a fantastic Eobard Thawne!
Andy Serkis as Black Flash
Say what you want about Andy Serkis, but the man has a gift when it comes to anything motion capture related. So who better to play the zombified speedster known as Black Flash? Unfamiliar with Serkis' work? Think again! He has done motion capture work for movies such as The Lord of The Rings trilogy, King Kong (2005), Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and most recently, a little indie film titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Whether you like it or not, Andy Serkis is a match for the grim reaper of the speed force, also know as Black Flash.
Side note: we saw a little peak at what (most likely) could have been Black Flash in the season 2 finale of The Flash. So, picture that Black Flash, now multiply by like, 100. Yeah, you want it now. Don't you?
What speedsters would you want to see in the DCEU? Do you agree with my casting choices? Let me know!
