Does Warner Bros. Want Chris Pine To Play The Flash?

With the script set to be completed by the end of December, the next big superhero casting that we can look forward to will be The Flash. There has already been a rumor floating around that Bradley Cooper is being considered, though he was quick to deny it just a few days later saying that he hasn't heard anything about it. Now another name has entered the field.

Towards the end of an article about the upcoming project, Screen Rant has suggested that Chris Pine, best known for his portrayal of James T. Kirk in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, is a name that has been kicking around the Warner Bros./DC Comics offices. It's uncertain though, if Pine even knows about it yet. What I'm trying to get at is that Chris Pine isn't going to be officially named The Flash tomorrow.

While I like the choice of Pine, believing that he could convincingly play the dark Barry Allen that writers Greg Berlanti , Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim want, I do wonder if he would be willing or able to take on the role. The actor is already attached to the aforementioned Star Trek series and is also set to be the new Jack Ryan in Moscow, which will likely also turn into a franchise. Superhero movies take time to make and that's something that Pine simply might not have.
