So last month, we had Greg Berlanti, co-producer and co-writer for the upcoming Green Lantern films, tell us how The Flash movie will have elements from Se7en, Silence of the Lambs and The Matrix. In a recent interview with writer Marc Guggenheim, he had this to say:
We are working on The Flash movie now and typing away… We are being true to whole Barry Allen science police, [back then] that’s what forensic exanimers were, we are being true to those origins and updating them for the 21st century and I feel like, in many ways, the movie, it’s three movies in one, it’s part thriller, that forensic, cool, Se7en, Silence of the Lambs, then part superhero movie and part sports movie because there is an athleticism to this character that other superheroes don’t have so that’s fun to play with and you get to see how all three of those elements form each other and make the whole movie even better.
Not only do we have Se7en and Silence of the Lamb mentioned again, we now have that The Flash will be three movies in one since it’ll be a mix of a thriller, superhero and sports movie. With the script due at the end of the year, I’m sure this won’t be the last time we get to hear what The Flash will be like.
What do y’all think about this news? Is this how you want The Flash movie to be or do you think they maybe overdoing the “dark” part for the speedy hero?
