Is Ryan Gosling Interested In Playing The Flash In JUSTICE LEAGUE?

Ryan Gosling, hasn't done a comic book superhero role yet, but that hasn't stopped fan-casters from penciling him in as their favorite choice for The Flash, or Bruce Wayne, and of course his blonde locks make him an easy choice for Aquaman. When Screen Crave approached the actor about possibly suiting up for Warner Bros. upcoming summer tentpole, Justice League, the actor didn't exactly come off as excited playing The Flash.

Screen Crave: Here’s a question I’m sure a lot of fans want an answer to. When are you going to do a superhero movie?

Ryan Gosling: Well, they’re all taken.

Screen Crave: Not true. Justice League is coming out in 2015. Superman and Batman are taken. But The Flash and maybe even Green Lantern are up for grabs.

Ryan Gosling: Well Ryan Reynolds is Green Lantern. I can get Flash basically.

Screen Crave: So would you ever do one though?

Ryan Gosling: Here’s the thing. Drive was my attempt at the superhero movie. I had a costume and everything. The scorpion jacket. It was like my cape. It was like the idea of a guy that had seen too many superhero movies and then decided that he was going to make himself one.

He'd be a decent choice for Flash, but he's currently my top choice to play the next Batman. And I don't think Batman is taken, assuming that Joseph Gordon-Levitt won't be playing him. I doubt Ryan Reynolds will come back as Green Lantern, as much as I'd love to see it.

Hmmmmmm interesting. Kinda seems like he doesnt want to do it.

Karl Urban for Batman. Love Ryan Gosling and think he'd make a great aquaman.
NerdyGeek - 1/9/2013, 1:53 PM
So... that's pretty much a no then?

FlashhGordon27 - 1/9/2013, 1:53 PM
But yeah... In short... Sounds like he's not interested... at all.
Bandrews1 - 1/9/2013, 1:53 PM
He'll make a perfect Barry Allen.
FightAs0ne - 1/9/2013, 1:53 PM
I agree with Muckle. He seemed kind of nonchalant about it. He's still the face for Aquaman for me.
ScabbyJ - 1/9/2013, 1:54 PM
Very true. Driver was "a reeeeal hero". That's the whole point.
therj00 - 1/9/2013, 1:54 PM
I think other than Superman, the roles are pretty open. He would make a great Barry Allen, hopefully someone convinces him.
supermankalel - 1/9/2013, 1:55 PM
I just hope they do it JUSTICE on the big screen. Same goes for Man of Steel.
therj00 - 1/9/2013, 1:56 PM
Hell, he'd be the kind of actor that could bring a respectability to Aquaman though, plus shaved, he looks like Ivan Reis' portrayal of him.
Niuhll - 1/9/2013, 1:57 PM
Fair play if he's not interested, great actor though.
superpooper - 1/9/2013, 1:58 PM
I would've loved to see Guy Pearce as DD, but he's basically the only actor that I feel warrants being pursued for a cbm roll. I agree, if they're not feelin' it then [frick] 'em. Too many quality actors would be willing to fight to the death for these roles.
SaxoWolf - 1/9/2013, 1:58 PM
wow they have Batman?
soberchimera - 1/9/2013, 2:00 PM
Meh he looks like Barry Allen, but I doubt he could pull off his personality.
TankD - 1/9/2013, 2:00 PM
20 second teaser for his next film with the drive director. Only god forgives.
superpooper - 1/9/2013, 2:01 PM
Jon Hamm for matured (not old) Batman.
GreenHalJordan - 1/9/2013, 2:01 PM
I want him as Flash or Batman. HOWEVER:

MATT BOMER FOR BATMAN!!!
Matchow - 1/9/2013, 2:03 PM
I was just having this discussion the other day. Gosling would be perfect for Barry Allen. I hope he can see that Flash is not a c list character.
Niuhll - 1/9/2013, 2:04 PM
I always said Gosling for Daredevil, he'd do it justice.
Hero020200 - 1/9/2013, 2:05 PM
Sounded to me that he was evading the question
Obi - 1/9/2013, 2:06 PM
I've wanted him to play Batman for a couple of years now, and after seeing Drive i think he would make a perfect bruce Wayne.
nikgrid - 1/9/2013, 2:06 PM
Yeah he'd be great as Barry Allen and GreenHalJordan YES! Bomer as Batman could work.
GingerBird - 1/9/2013, 2:08 PM
No, Ryan please Run! Stay away from comic book movies! It's a horrible trend and if you're smart you'll jump ship like the rest of the smart/good ones!

jimpinto24 - 1/9/2013, 2:10 PM
Ryan Gosling would make a great Aquaman. I rather Jensen Ackles as Flash.
tron21full - 1/9/2013, 2:12 PM
Batman is not taken yet. Superman is. i think he should play either Batman or Flash. Aquaman? maybe. Drive as a superhero film? that is what i thought it was like when i saw it. and i still do
113 - 1/9/2013, 2:18 PM
I could see him as Flash or Green Arrow if they ever made one.
Greengo - 1/9/2013, 2:18 PM
That was a non-answer.
Optimus83 - 1/9/2013, 2:22 PM
good actor. ...better options:





Neil Patrick Harris





James van der Beek

"a guy that had seen too many superhero movies and then decided that he was going to make himself one" sounds like hes hinting at booster gold to me :P joking :)
TheAbomination - 1/9/2013, 2:25 PM
I could care less. At this point, I'm beginning to doubt this film will get made in our lifetime.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/9/2013, 2:28 PM
Cant see him as Batman. Aquaman or Flash on the other hand.
OptimisticPrime - 1/9/2013, 2:30 PM
He'd be better as a villain anyway. I don't want him as any member of the JL. Bradley Cooper for Barry Allen.
Hellsing - 1/9/2013, 2:31 PM
I honestly don't care what super hero he plays long as he doesnt use that whiny ass voice from gangster squad because it was annoying and [frick]ing distracting in the movie.
pud333 - 1/9/2013, 2:31 PM
Prefer him as Batman.
InfiniteMonkey - 1/9/2013, 2:35 PM
Plasticman......
MisterMagurlypse - 1/9/2013, 2:43 PM
Obviously, he's not interested in a CBM role right now. Shame, he's a hellva actor. I see him more as an Arthur than Barry or Wally.
Shamo - 1/9/2013, 2:47 PM
he can play anyone. hell, he'd even be a great Luke Cage.
RSDhillon - 1/9/2013, 2:49 PM
Great guy, but I still prefer Neil Patrick Harris for Flash.
