Marc Guggenheim Says The Flash Is "3 Movies In One", Reveals What We Can Expect From The Story

In an interview with Newsarama, writer Marc Guggenheim speaks a little about what we can expect to see when a big screen outing for The Flash finally comes our way..

Greg Berlanti has mentioned Barry Allen when talking about the upcoming screen outing for The Scarlet Speedster before, now writer Marc Guggenheim confirms that he will be our Flash. He also talks about the tone of the film and his favourite runs on the comic.

"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 foresic 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.



Guggenheim also says that the run on the comic dearest to his heart is the Mike Baron run, volume 2. Which of course focuses on Wally West! But he quickly goes back to Allen when he says what comics the movie will actually take from.

We're focusing on a lot of different eras. But I think a lot of Geoff Johns stuff, and Marc Wade, with the philosophy of speed is an influence. And we have also tried to take from the old Silver age Barry Allen stories.

Guggenheim was next asked about a possible Green Lantern cross over, to which he replied that those decisions are "a little above my pay grade", but that he has always wanted cross overs and campaigns for them so who knows?

So, sounds like we are in for a pretty strange original film at least! What are your thoughts on the direction so far? You can listen to the full video interview by clicking the link below.
