Goyer Flashes for WB

Variety delivers what feels like a daily dose of comic book news when they inform us of David Goyer's next project. Fresh off of all three "Blade" movies and next year's "Batman Begins," Mr. Goyer will write, produce and direct (but not star in) "The Flash" for Warner Bros. "The Flash" springs from the DC side of the comic book universe, the one that offers Superman and Batman over Marvel's Spider-Man and The Hulk, and once inspired a short-lived cult classic TV series from a few years back. The Flash, basically, can run really fast. Like around-the-world-in-a-few-seconds kinda fast. Goyer seems psyched: ""'Flash' is my favorite of the properties...I think the character of the Flash, who moves faster than the speed of light, opens itself up to rich cinematic and story ideas." The fiilmmaker also hopes to bring Marvel's "Thor" hero to life, but hey...The Flash got there first.

[b]WB/DC GETTING BACK ON THE BALL?[/b]
Looks like DC is waging a comeback with batman begins and superman returns. Now comes the announcement of a Flash film. This makes me believe more that WB is after Josh Whedon to make a wonder woman film. After seeing the success of the marvel properties and the huge failure of catwoman, I think WB/Dc is finally adapting a more realistic story element to their properties similar to marvel. I guess this is the same trend that happened in their books as well. What does everyone think of the Flash movie announcemnet. Rumor is Ryan Reynolds might be the Wally West "Flash" in the film.
