THE FLASHMarch 16, 2018 Not confirmed yet, but the rumor is that Bradley Cooper will play Barry Allen in The Flash movie. He was an original candidate to play Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern movie, before Ryan Reynolds got the part. It's still way too premature to say anything positive about this or the Green Lantern movie, but for some reason I can actually see Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper as buddies -- which makes me open up to the possibility of them having good chemistry together as Hal and Barry if the producers ever pursue a Justice League movie -- The only question is... Can they actually play Hal and Barry? I'm not sure either are right for the roles. I guess we'll see.
