Time to get your pinch of salt at the ready, as El Mayimbe of Heroic Hollywood claims to have got his hands on a casting breakdown for Warner Bros.’ The Flash movie, which features details on five supporting characters who will allegedly be appearing alongside Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen in the 2018 release.
IRIS WEST: Iris West is described in the breakdown as having Christiane Amanpour’s brains and Carrie Bradshaw’s style. An overcaffinated doe. A reporter at The Central City Citizen. Actresses are currently testing for this part.
EOBARD THAWNE: Eobard Thawne is described in the breakdown as Central City’s Bill Gates. The smartest man in the room and he suffers from advanced degenerative disease like Stephen Hawking. Thawne is confined to a chair.
FRED CHYRE: Fred Chyre is described in the breakdown as a gruff detective who first meets Barry at the scene of a crime. Now they’re colleagues and the closest thing Barry has to a friend. Chryre is investigating the unusual death of someone at Thawne Laboratories
LEN SNART: Len Snart is described in the breakdown as being ex-military and turns out to be working for Thawne. Have a feeling he is the muscle the way Anatoli Knyazev (aka the KGBEAST) was the muscle for Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
JAY GARRICK: Jay Garrick is described in the breakdown as being a former Central University professor who was fired for fringe science, and was working on the speed force program. Supposedly his role is just a cameo.
If these breakdowns are true, it sounds like the movie will be taking some inspiration from The CW series, especially with regards to Reverse-Flash. But of course, this is a Heroic Rumour, so that’s a pretty big “if”…
The Flash is set for release on March 16th 2018, with Seth Grahame-Smith attached as writer and director and Ezra Miller reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
