Ryan Reynolds on The Flash

The Flash has been in the news quite a bit recently, the biggest of which is that David Goyer no longer directing and Shawn Levy is instead. Ryan Reynolds has been talked about as fitting the role of The Flash and apparently attached to it for sometime while it was still under Goyer. However, now that it's all changed, fellow movie site Moviehole asked him about the project and got a very interesting and rather convincing answer from him.
Now that David Goyer's left 'The Flash' project does that mean you're off the project as well?
Reynolds: Um, you know I was never officially on the project so-it's just something that most of the fan boys have felt like there's a strong similarity between Ryan Reynolds and Wally West. So, I certainly know of Wally and have read all the comic books and I'd love to jump in there and play him. I don't know where the direction of the Flash is going to go from here though. Shawn Levy is taking it over and they may decide that Barry Allen is the one that they want in there, an older version of the Flash, and that is something that I wouldn't be interested in playing. But if it was Wally I would definitely be curious.
You can read the full interview here. Sounds great and honestly I hope he does get the role. I'm glad to hear actors actually go out and reading the materials their characters are based off of!
