If you've seen any of a handful of the animated movies, comics, or spinoff/partner shows, you've seen grodd. And the people that watch those aren't just confined to nerds.

With that said, I think Flash is an absolutely terrible lone superhero for a movie. He is incredibly powerful (see JLU where he beats Brainiac), but doesn't have the character to fill up an entire video. Not compelling enough. Superman has the fame, Batman has the sheer intellect, etc. Flash is, in every version I've seen, a witty joke character, not well-suited for a headlining film.

Barry Allen?

Agree Flash isn't a good character to headline a movie.

I don't know. You could have some cool visuals in a Flash movie. Add in a competent storyline and it might be enough.

Another obstacle towards making a Flash movie would be finding a decent villain IMO.

As for the Flash villains, there are plenty to choose from. Capt. Boomerang, Capt. Cold, Trickster, Weather Wizard, Heat Wave, Mirror Master, Abra Kadabra, The Top and Prof. Zoom as all possible. I'd like to see Grodd but I don't know if they can pull that off. I think Prof Zoom is a good origins villain and maybe have a montage of him beating up some of the lesser villains in Central City.

Flash II?
post #399 of 693
I remember it, but it was not much of a show. They could do it much better on the big screen. FLASH's powers are much more interesting then "guy who runs fast," when you really start to see what they have done with the character over the years.

If they can find a way to create a decent on-screen costume and properly introduce his wacky villains, a Flash movie can happen. All iterations of the Flash are interesting enough characters in and of themselves. I can see RFX's idea of a getting-to-know-my-powers-and-using-them-on-thugs montage, while derivative, working.

I vaguely remember that but technology and costume design is just so much better these days. I loved Smallville for the first 4-5 seasons and I thought they did superhero show very well. There were a few costumed heroes there like Green Arrow, Hawkman, Booster Gold, etc... Some looked cheesy but I think it worked overall.

As a Smallville fan (at least the decent seasons) - towards the end of the series they started going bat-crazy incorporating DC crossovers. Their JSA two-hour episode was pretty good - nailed Dr. Strange.
