Jessica Parker Kennedy Wants Grant Gustin To Star In ‘The Flash’ Movie

The Flash Jessica Parker Kennedy Grant Gustin

Jessica Parker Kennedy thinks that her The Flash co-star Grant Gustin is ready for the big screen.

Jessica Parker Kennedy plays Nora West-Allen on The CW’s The Flash. She plays the future daughter of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West (Candice Patton), who joined the series during its fourth season. Although, Jessica Parker Kennedy’s speedster has since become a series regular for season five. Grant Gustin’s family on The Flash has grown quite a bit since the series began in 2014.

Grant Gustin has played The Flash on TV but he has yet to bring the character to the big screen. Ezra Miller played The Flash briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. He then returned to the role in a more prominent way in the 2017 team-up movie Justice League. 

During a visit to The Tomorrow Show, Jessica Parker Kennedy revealed that she thinks Grant Gustin should play The Flash on the big screen. This is what Jessica Parker Kennedy had to say about Grant Gustin’s potential on the big screen.

“I think this is one of the first things I said to Grant when I met him. I was like ‘Man, you should be The Flash in a Flash movie’ because I just think he’s the perfect Flash.”

Jessica Parker Kennedy went on to explain that although she wants to see Grant Gustin star in The Flash on the big screen, she doesn’t mean to throw shade at Ezra Miller. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t prefer Grant Gustin though, as she reiterates. Check out what Jessica Parker Kennedy had to say about the two Flash stars below.

“No disrespect to Ezra Miller, of course. I love him, I’ve been watching him, I’ve been a fan of his for a long time, but I just can’t see anyone else as the Flash. I just feel like it’s Grant. I really do. He’s perfect for it.”

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
