Wanna Hear Something Crazy?

There are rumors floating around right now that, now that DC is back to considering some of their other franchises - there is a crazy rumor that Neil Patrick Harris' name has been floating around with the term The Flash.

According to screenrant, Now comes possible “insider” news that Neil Patrick Harris and possibly Scott Porter (according to ThinkMcFlyThink.com) are being looked at to play the Scarlet Speedster. Scott played the young Rex Racer in Speed Racer and has a recurring role on Friday Night Lights.


That is about all I have to say. I agree with Rodney over on TheMovieBlog.com where he says that this runs the potential risk of becoming an NPH movie using The Flash rather than a Flash movie starring NPH. He is just SOOOOO huge right now in the celebrity world that it seems almost impossible for people to not think - "hey, I'm watching NPH" when he is on screen. Now don't get me wrong. I would LOVE to see him totally destroy this role - but part of me just doesn't think it is so right.

And with Ryan Reynolds out of the question due to his role as Deadpool in the new Wolverine movie - who remains?

On a side note - just thought of this while typing. NPH as Spiderman? I think he offers up the perfect amount of sass - and could feasibly play a nerdy fellow as well. Not that he would be a "better" choice than Tobey - but if Tobey had to go, would you consider NPH?

Thoughts? - NPH as The Flash - Go.
