One thing that I think could differentiate the movie from the TV show is emphasizing the Flash as a people's heroes. Within the context of the DCEU, Superman stands apart from the human race, Batman is regarded as a myth, Wonder Woman is unknown to the public, Cyborg doesn't even exist, Green Lantern isn't around and Aquaman is just an angry king.
The Flash would, be default, be the only hero that gets up-close and personal, that stops petty crimes, helps people on a more personal, approachable level. I think that's something they can play with, make him champion for human interest stuff like helping charities and improving people's lives. Just make him a nice guys that does nice things other heroes might oversee.
Just don't make him an edgy and somber "god among men".
That's not differentiating him from the tv Flash at all, as CW Flash is shown helping civilians and is beloved by his city. You're just talking about differentiating him from other DC movie heroes.
No. He needs someone to bounce off from. Just go with the usual: Iris knows, and have older Jay Garrick as his sage mentor and Speed Force mentor.
Monologues suck in superhero movies.
CW does it, but not much, because they're usually caught in the ovearching plot. I guess emphasizing it could work. I don't know.
We get a lot of Flash helping people and just being nice, though.
>Paiting the building in seconds
>Giving some random woman fighting with her husband flowers
>Nudging a couple of betas together so one of them has guts to make the first move
>Rebuilding buildings destroyed in his fights at night (TAKE A HINT, SUPERMAN)
He can have some close people knowing, but not the same amount at the show, and also not communicating with him while he operates.
Also, monologues can work if they do it right, specially considering they will probably go for a lighter tone for his movie. Monologues are a big part of Flash too.
Flash without a supporting cast just doesn't make sense. Every version of the character has had friends, love interests, rivals, mentors, etc. Flash is all ABOUT character connections and relationships.
All I want is a Flash who's competent enough to solve problems, show his criminal forensic abilities, and doesn't have a damn cheer squad who knows who he is. He can still have a strong supporting cast like Patty and Iris, but I hate "Team Flash".
>Batman is regarded as a myth,
How could this possibly be true? He'd be all over the internet from day one now. They've literally got footage of the alien who can fly fast enough to achieve escape velocity. Batman drives around in a tank and shoots people with grenades IN THE US. He'd have more people people looking for him than Bin Laden.
>and Aquaman is just an angry king
Based on what? Aquaman is probably the best character on the league at shrugging off jokes and hate, only Manta makes him angry. He and Mera just do thier own thing, it's half the characters arc for godsake.
Read a comic next time anon.
Is this what CW has done, having people think Barry can't function as a hero alone? The guy can get strength from his loved ones but they don't need to know his secret or tell him how to defeat the rogues
It works for the show because of the villain of the week format and plenty of time to develop the relationship with the team. That wouldn't work in the movie.
He can have Iris and someone as Mentor, and even someone to help him at STAR Labs. But a bunch of people telling him what to do everytime he's facing something? That can be changed.
Uh yeah it's got a love triangle between Barry, Iris and Patty, Barry's coworkers factor in heavily into a plot arc involving the speed force, what are you referring to?
Now, granted i haven't been reading since Manapul/Buccelatto left, so I don't know if anything else has been developed or dropped since then.
Nobody helps Barry telling him what to do when he's facing something, and I think no one knows he's the Flash. This is what we're talking about. The show has like 15 people who knows his identity, and like 5 of them constantly helps him figuring out what to do through the com.

All of that was thrown out and nothing developed further.
