Warner will have The Flash by Christmas

Warner will have The Flash by Christmas

According to Deadline, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green have already got their Christmas present picked out for Geoff Johns – a nicely-packaged and polished “The Flash” script. Surely this would make the list of titles in superhero fan’s entertainment centers around the globe.

The duo, fleshing out a story by Greg ‘Brothers & Sisters’ Berlanti, will apparently be handing in their draft to DC and Warner this Chrissy.

Scuttlebutt has Berlanti directing the long-gestating superhero project (David Goyer was going to direct the flick, with Ryan Reynolds headlining, about five years ago; Dave Dobkin of “Wedding Singers” fame was more recently attached to direct) but the aforementioned site says otherwise : “He won’t want to direct it because he kinda wants to do something in between size-wise first before attempting something that large,” an insider tells Nikki Finke. “On the other hand, “If Warner Bros does like the script and wants him to direct it… But that’s a lot of ifs. And all of it is moot if they don’t dig the script. Green Lantern wasn’t real until the studio liked the draft.”

The three scribes also worked on the “Green Lantern 2″ script – yep, the first isn’t even in cans yet and they’ve nearly finished penning the sequel; confidence for ya!? – and it too will be in Warner’s stocking reading for ready on, well, boxing day.

But back to “The Flash” – with Ryan Reynolds now playing The Green Lantern, it goes without saying that the studio’s going to be after a different mug to put behind this particular mask.

Very early days but, I’ve heard Bradley Cooper, who of course was the runner-up for the role of Hal Jordan in DC’s “Green Lantern”, is the favourite to wiggle his way into the cherry tights. Warner Bros loves them some Cooper, and DC is very keen to have Cooper be ‘part of the family’, so don’t be surprised to hear the “Hangover” star’s name mentioned in relation to the role when the shortlist is inevitably leaked. (Personally, I don’t mind the idea of Adam Brody – who was attached to play the speedy superhero in the ill-fated “Justice League” flick).
