An awesome new concept design imagines You star Penn Badgley as the Reverse-Flash for Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie.
The long-in-development solo Flash film is currently set to hit theaters in the summer of 2022. While plot details are being kept under lock and key, the project is expected to adapt the classic DC Comics story Flashpoint, which follows Barry Allen when he runs back in time to prevent the death of his mother, creating an alternate timeline where he never becomes the Scarlet Speedster in a much-different DC Universe.
While production on The Flash was originally expected to begin in 2021, it remains unclear as to when the project will be able to move forward due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, it’s only a matter of time before The Flash film finds its Eobard Thawne as the Flashpoint storyline features Reverse Flash as its main villain and a new fan edit from digital artist “bobby_art” imagines what Penn Badgley could look like as the iconic DC Comics character. You can check it out below.
So what do you think? Would Penn Badgley be a good choice for the role of Eobard Thawne? Or is there someone else you would like to see play Reverse Flash? Sound-off in the comments!
IT director Andy Muschietti is set to direct the project from a script written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey). Muschietti and his wife and IT producer Barbara Muschietti will produce the project along with Michael Disco.
