David Goyer on Adapting The Flash

The New York Daily News talked to Batman Begins writer David Goyer about his next gig, the big screen adaptation of The Flash, which he’ll write and direct.

“Fans know there’s been more than one Flash over the years,” Goyer adds. “There’s been a lot of speculation and rumor, but both Barry Allen and Wally West will be in this movie.”

Goyer is referring to the The Flash’s “normal” identity. He started as Jay Garrick in 1940. Allen took over in 1956 and Wallace (introduced as Kid Flash in 1959) in 1986.

“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.”
