Ryan Reynolds was rumored to play The Flash in a big screen adaptation but the project basically fell through. Now that a JLA movie is in the works, he tells MTV News that he may still play the role, just not in a solo movie:
"'The Flash' isn't dead at all. There's talk of it being a JLA movie, the Justice League having them all together. And then there's other talk of doing a 'Flash' movie with [director] Shawn Levy."
Rumors of a Justice League movie have gained momentum in recent weeks. Now we're hearing it straight from one of the potential stars' mouths. When asked if he thought the JLA film might happen first, Reynolds told us, "[it] might, yeah. I don't really know how much I'm allowed to talk about that stuff. But I'm sure they'll figure out something. It's no secret that they have a JLA script and it's a project that's in development - the contents of which, who knows. We'll see."
I was the front-runner to play The Flash, but the producers said my abs were too defined. Guess they decided to go with somebody who wasn't quite as fit.
