The LA Times today has confirmed that Adam Brody has been cast to play the Flash in the upcoming George Miller directed film Justice League of America.
However, Warner Bros. still hasn’t confirmed the casting news insisting that the film still hasn’t even been given a green light (the film isn’t expected until at least 2009). It’s likely Warner Bros. is waiting until all of the roles are cast.
From /Film, here’s what the film might be about:
Justice League supposedly begins with the funeral of Barry Allen, the second Flash (1956-1986). His nephew (by marriage) Wally West was exposed to electrically charged chemicals at ten years old when he was visiting his uncle’s police laboratory. West donned a copy of his uncle’s outfit and became the young crime fighter named Kid Flash. After Barry Allen was killed, Wally took over as the fastest man alive. The Flash possesses “super-speed,” and superhuman reflexes which allow him to violate certain laws of physics. Wedding Crashers and Fred Claus helmer David Dobkin is signed on to direct a Flash feature film following production of Justice League.
