Bradley Cooper has a good laugh about those Flash casting rumors

10.15.2010

There was an early rumor that we heard this week regarding Bradley Cooper as a possible choice for The Flash.

Apparently this rumor was very funny according to Cooper.

Super Hero Hype caught up with the actor yesterday who said this about those rumors, "I've never heard anything about it ever in my life." He then proceeded to laugh about the fact that this had caught on so quickly on the internet.

Cooper followed his laughter with, "It's funny."

People are quick to toss the names of actors out there when it comes to a project like this one. It was natural that Cooper's name got associated with this since he was the runner-up for the role of GREEN LANTERN. The part went to Ryan Reynolds who was also being considered for the role on The Flash. So maybe they thought that Cooper would get the part of Barry Allen as a consolation prize. He still might be an option for the role though.

Personally, I think that Cooper would be better suited for Wally West rather than Allen. But that's just me. It's the best suggestion I've heard thus far.

Extra Tidbit: Who would you choose for the role of Barry Allen?

If I had to pick I would say they should go with a new up and coming Actor named Bill Bailey.

I would like to see Cooper in some superhero role, he's a good up and comer. The Flash could work well with him, rumor or not.

My vote still goes out to Jared Padalecki. Cooper would be my second choice.

How about the Flash sucks as a character .. I could give a flying fuck about a guy in a red suit that does nothing but run real fast. I mean seriously what kind of fucking action they going to do for a movie .. some slo motion punches? or how about some slow motion running in circles around a bad guy with a rope... I hate this fucking character. Wonder Woman has a much better origin and story than this Flash asshole.

Hmmm

We all know actors/ actresses try hard to keep from telling the truth about big roles. It probably will be Cooper, and he is trying to throw us off the track.

cooper would be cool, but I think Shawn Roberts (Land Of The Dead, Wesker in Resident Evil Afterlife) could be a nice flash. After all he was considered for Green Lantern for a while...

I GOTTA ASK...

because it boggles my mind but what is with Neil Patrick Harris being suggested for every Superhero movie, seriously did I miss something? Don't get me wrong I like NPH and he's great on How I met Your Mother and doing voice work for stuff like Under the Redhood but I don't see him being cast in a big budget superhero movie when they can cast people like Brad Pitt and guys like that with a bigger status in Hollywood. It's like every role that comes along there's people suggesting him no matter

It's like every role that comes along there's people suggesting him no matter what the role is, they could be like 'Who should play the next Wolverine?' and 10 people will say NPH. Believe me I'm not raggin' on the guy but in the eyes of Hollywood he's just a TV actor not a bankable leading man. As for Bradly Cooper I could see him in the role and he'll most likely get it because he's the hot new thing right now. NPH is a talented guy but Hollywood isn't about talent it's about making money first and foremost and by casting someone like Bradley Cooper they got better odds making bank opening weekend. The only way NPH would ever be cast in a major studio superhero movie is as a side character like Jimmy Olsen, I'm not saying thats fair but it's just the reality of Hollywood.

Yeah, well, this is an internet comment thread on a movie fan website. We're not actually movie execs. We actually still have an eye for talent.

Do you really want us to cater our opinions to the uninspired money-men?

This is what we WANT to happen, not what we THINK will happen.

NPH for Barry Allen, all the way.

Honestly, as much as I can't stand Ryan Renolds, he should've been Flash instead of Green Lantern. I just can't take Ryan Renolds seriously.

your talking about wanting to take someone seriously in the context of a flash and Green lantern movie?

Flash is way cooler than lantern so it wouldn't really be a consolation prize. I could see cooper as flash but I really think they missed a great opportunity with reynolds on this one.

I find it funny because it seems that whenever a superhero role makes it's way around the corner, the people's choice for the role is whoever is the hottest actor at that point in time.

Chris Pine, but with Kirk and Jack Ryan on his resume...a man can only have so many franchises.

Cooper seems like a decent fit though. Still think he is a dead ringer for Hal Jordan though.

Part will probably go to Josh Duhamel, or, worse yet, Timberlake.
