Since Ryan Reynolds unfortunately got the GL role instead of the Flash I've been scratching my head trying to think of another witty character to fill the potential shoes. And I think Joel McHale would be perfect. So Yeah, Lets get this ball rolling. And what do you guys and/or girls think?
 
P.S. If anyone has actual editing skill and wants to do a better patch job than my ms paint fiasco I implore you=]

As Barry Allen? I don't know. I can't quite see it. :/

na...I mean he can do funny well but I haven't seen him ever be serious on any level for very long so I don't think it'd work. I mean I know Flash rolls with the jokes, but there still needs to be more to the character in a movie than some good one liners.

agreed- Barry is a little more serious, Wally is hilarious- so Joel would be good in that sense.

I agree. If he can show some seriousness in something, then maybe he can, but as of now, eh, no.

I agree with you, but after seeing some his work in Community I am confident that he can pull of some of those more serious moments.
