When it was announced that David Goyer would next be directing The Invisible, a remake of a recent foreign film, many wondered what that meant for a feature adaptation of DC Comics’ The Flash. It’s still happening, Goyer tells the Daily News, New York’s Hometown Paper.
And the news is good – Goyer is going to be keeping the Flash a legacy hero. "Fans know there’s been more than one Flash over the years. There’s been a lot of speculation and rumor, but both Barry Allen and Wally West will be in this movie," Goyer tells the paper. That’s great – keeping the legacy aspect will be an exciting new spin in the increasingly crowded world of superhero movies.
Goyer is also going to be dipping into some of the rich concepts that surround the Flash post-Crisis on Infinite Earths. "We’re going to go into the ‘Speed Force’ and a lot of the cosmic aspects of the character from the more recent past," Goyer says. "Trust me, we’re going to do a lot more than have the Flash run on water and create vortexes. I have a guy from M.I.T. helping me with all of this. We’re going to be playing with relativity, Doppler effects and all kinds of things like that. Audiences will be amazed."
I’m psyched. The Flash is a character who will be difficult to bring to screen in an interesting way, but it sounds like Goyer’s on the right track.
