is currently being set up over at Warner Bros, and co-writer Marc Guggenheim has just brought us up to speed with some awesome-sounding hints about what we should expect.
Apparently the film version of the fleet-footed hero will draw on various eras of the comic, with Barry Allen's Silver Age stories, and Mark Waid’s writing on the philosophy of speed and running “a big influence”.
Not only that, but the movie is going to be a hybrid of filmic influences, with Guggenheim tagging it “three movies in one”.
He explains: “It’s part thriller - that forensic, cool, Seven , Silence Of The Lambs - part superhero movie, and part sports movie because there’s an athleticism to this character that other superheroes don’t have…
“And you get to see how all three of those elements inform each other and make the whole movie even better. We’re combining the superhero movie with these other two genres and it’s just a blast.”
So there you have it. The Flash : three movies in one. Sounds like a bargain to us.
