RUMOR: Are These The 5 Supporting Characters Currently Being Cast For THE FLASH Movie?

A character breakdown sent out to talent agencies seemingly reveals the DC heroes and villains that will be supporting Ezra Miller's Scarlet Speedster in Warner Bros.' solo Flash movie. Take a look...

Are these the 5 characters that'll join the Faster Man Alive in The Flash? Heroic Hollywood reckons a casting call they've got a look at reveals who we'll see backing up/taking down Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) in the Scarlet Speedster's 2018 solo outing.

The names will be very familiar to fans of both the DC source materiel and CW's small screen take - but the site stresses that Iris West is the only character that actresses are currently testing for, so the others may be subject to change.


IRIS WEST: Iris West is described in the breakdown as having Christiane Amanpour’s brains and Carrie Bradshaw’s style. An overcaffinated doe. A reporter at The Central City Citizen. Actresses are currently testing for this part.

EOBARD THAWNE: Eobard Thawne is described in the breakdown as Central City’s Bill Gates. The smartest man in the room and he suffers from advanced degenerative disease like Stephen Hawking. Thawne is confined to a chair.

FRED CHYRE: Fred Chyre is described in the breakdown as a gruff detective who first meets Barry at the scene of a crime. Now they’re colleagues and the closest thing Barry has to a friend. Chryre is investigating the unusual death of someone at Thawne Laboratories

LEN SNART: Len Snart is described in the breakdown as being ex-military and turns out to be working for Thawne. Have a feeling he is the muscle the way Anatoli Knyazev (aka the KGBEAST) was the muscle for Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

JAY GARRICK: Jay Garrick is described in the breakdown as being a former Central University professor who was fired for fringe science, and was working on the speed force program. Supposedly his role is just a cameo.

Fans will probably have expected some of these guys (such as Iris and Captain Cold), but the inclusion of the likes of Reverse-Flash (the breakdown for Thawne is pretty much word-for-word his small screen counterpart) and Jay Garrick would seem to be an odd move as it suggests the movie will draw heavily from one of the main arcs of the CW series.

Not necessarily a bad thing of course, but we've heard that WB is planning to go a different direction, and this doesn't gel with that. What do you guys think?
