The Flash has been one of DC's most important characters for decades, but it's only now that he's finally getting significant attention on the big screen. Ezra Miller's Barry Allen cameoed earlier this year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will fully debut in Justice League. Then he'll lead his own movie in 2018, giving fans their second, modern live action look at his life, the other being the CW TV series, assuming it's still on by then.

Aside from Miller obviously returning, the only other folks connected to The Flash have been Kiersey Clemons being eyed to play his love interest, presumably Iris West, and Ray Fisher rumored to appear as Cyborg. A rumored list of the main players also hit the web back in April, but aside from Iris' likely involvement, that information hasn't been verified. It's a good bet that before the year is finished, we'll find out who most of the main players are, but until then, we've gathered seven other key Flash characters (leaving out allies of his from elsewhere in the DC universe) who would be great fits for the Scarlet Speedster's first solo cinematic adventure.

Reverse-Flash

Professor Zoom

Some of the best villains are twisted reflections of their respective heroes. In Barry Allen's case, it's Eobard Thawne, a.k.a. Professor Zoom, a.k.a. one of the Reverse-Flashes. Eobard grew up idolizing Flash in the 25th century, going so far as to recreate the same accident that gave him his speed. However, when Eobard traveled back in time to meet his hero, he learned he was destined to become his worst enemy, and when his sanity snapped, he spent his life terrorizing Flash. That rumored cast listed described Eobard as the head of Thawne who suffers from a degenerative disease that's confined him to a wheelchair. That sounds too similar to what The Flash TV series is doing, so hopefully they don't go that route. However, Eobard would definitely make a great main antagonist in The Flash, giving Barry a run for his money (pun completely intended) as he seeks revenge against Barry for something the young speedster hasn't even done...yet. However, if the DCEU wants to pace how they use Professor Zoom, they could introduce him in the first movie, but not fully reveal him as a villain until the sequel.
