    Iris and Chyre sound fine, but Thawne sounds exactly like Harrison Wells from the TV show. Which...fits, when you think about it, but is kind of on the nose :p.

    Snart as an ex-military thug working for Thawne just does not sound like Captain Cold, especially for a character so defined by being a career criminal, though I guess you could feasibly include the other Rogues by making them Snart's old army buddies :shrug:.

    I'm not sure about Jay as a cameo, but a former Central City University professor studying the Speed Force could work in this continuity, even if I'd prefer classic, Speedster, Jay :cool:.

    If it were up to me I'd have Barry's buddy be someone he becomes a hero later on but isn't good enough for a solo movie, like Ralph Dibney.

    Capt. Cold portrayed as ex-military makes perfect sense to me.

    First, if his military background includes work in electronics/engineering it could help more convincingly explain his proficiency with a freeze gun, a traditionally high-tech weapon.

    And second, it gives a more logical reason for him to be called "Captain" Cold.

    Besides, ex-military can still become career criminals.

    http://www.newsarama.com/29076-report-flash-director-drops-out-over-creative-differences.html

    Director Seth Grahame-Smith has stepped away from the project over "creative differences," though they're apparently still using his screenplay based off Lord and Miller's first draft o_O.

    Evidentially "creative differences" between studios and directors are common on both sides of the comic book movie pool, even though you'd think with the DCEU's mandate of prioritizing the director's "creative vision" it wouldn't happen as much :shrug:.

    While I think this is the second time for this movie line, Wonder Woman, being the first, it's probably more a matter of the Internet sniffing out every piece of movement in Hollywood. People come and go on projects.

    And we're also probably never going to find out what those creative differences involved, as is so often the case :sweat:.

    I'm actually pretty OK with this. The guy didn't really have any directing credits to his name; I'd feel better if they gave the film to someone with more experience.

    Well, she's worked with the director before, so that's not surprising. If she ends up as Iris, here's hoping she does a great job in the role and plays off Miller's Barry well ;).

    Though I wonder who they could cast as Wally? Actually, with how young Barry is, maybe we should wonder how old Wally would be :sweat:?

    EDIT 07/215: Kiersey Clemons is confirmed as Iris West.

    Well, we already pretty much knew about that by now, but still nice to have it confirmed :).

    Heh :p.

    I guess they either want to not go the obvious route by making Reverse-Flash the main villain, not to mention invite more comparisons to the show, or hold off on solving the mystery of who killed Barry's mom (even if quite a few of the general audience should know by now) :sweat:.

    Though he could also be behind The Rogues somehow o_O.
