KCAs and some Flash rumor  
So yeah, Zac didn't win the KCA award. Figured as much when he didn't show up, lol. But that's cool, maybe he was busy wining and dining some Swedes for Snabba Cash.

Also there is some rumor saying Zac wants to play Flash Gordon.

“Zac is one of the frontrunners to play Flash and he’s making no secret of the fact that he would love the role,” blabbed the mole.

“Spider-Man has been done and he doesn’t want to follow someone like Tobey Maguire.

“Flash would be all Zac and a chance for him to make a mark with his own franchise. He’s very excited about the possibility.”

The thing is... that seems odd, I mean, aside from the fact that this rumor started at a gossip site and not a legit film site or trade. Flash Gordon is cool and I wouldn't oppose it of course but at the same time it seems unlikely. Flash Gordon is not really near casting per the director a month ago. Nor does Zac really fit the character imo. I think Flash Gordon is usually a few years older than Zac, closer to 30, and his body is just broader/stockier.

I'm going to content myself with thinking that if a 'source' heard this for real, the gossip site just misinterpreted it to mean Flash Gordon instead of The Flash.

The Flash makes more sense in the context of this quote since they are comparing the role to another comic book superhero not just a sci-fi/adventure hero. Plus The Flash is at WB and we know they like Zac a lot and apparently want to find him a good franchise. And the first draft of The Flash script (by Chris Brancato) was about Wally West at around age 24. Of course, we have no idea what the second Dan Mazeau draft is like or if it is even done, but I do think overall The Flash is closer to production and closer to casting than Flash Gordon.

TBH, Zac doesn't quite have the body of the Flash either, but in terms of major superheros it is probably the best one for his physique, second only to Spider-Man. It is best because his powers rely on speed, not body mass, and character-wise, Wally West is well-suited to Zac with his humor and likeability. From the DCAU Wiki: "Apart from his vast speed powers, Wally's most significant qualities were his approachability and his down-to-earth, quintessentially human nature — qualities that many said made him the 'heart of the Justice League.'"

Even before this rumor, I'd been discussing the Flash as a cool potential role for Zac with jeezbee and others. So although the story is probably all bunk anyway, this is how I'm going to interpret it, just cause I want to :D

Quick fix to make him Flashfron instead of Spiderfron, lolz:

Superman is, in fact, as lame as Edward Cullen.

Uh, I think Edward's a little cooler than Superman, TBH.

I like how I wrote that "of a glitter" and not "of a killer" but BOTH ARE ACCURATE, which is a strangely un-American tendency of Edward's.

Is that diary for real? LOL.

Since we're talking superheros... As you know Zac name is thrown around by a few fans as wish for Bucky... someone made quite a nice manip (although you might have seen it already).

yeah the diary is from australia i think.
Beejeezbee on March 29th, 2010 12:23 pm (UTC)
Crazy. I don't think they bothered getting a licensing permission for that, so let's hope they don't get caught. lol

i can't see him as flash. too much focus on the legs.

I can see him in the Sailor Moon universe though. :)

Tuxedo Mask - but kinda too short :(
Fish Eye or Hawks Eye -Zaccy in heels. :) he's worn them.

but i think i'm the only one who knows what i'm talking about.

I know what you're talking about, but I don't think he fits those characters at all.

Mamoru - I know Zac can play stoic, but it's the worst use of his skills.
Jaedite/Zoicite/Motoki - I would kill myself if he had to go any of those perfectly disgusting shades of blonde.
Fish Eye - LAWD, my least favorites, alongside the Star Fighters. Worlds of DNW. And I really don't see Z being able to pull Matthew Goode levels of flamboyance.
Elios - That boring ass horseeee, IDTS. Plus I would never saddle Z with Rini.

He'd make a good Jaedite/Zoicite/Motoki and why must they all be blonde? you have no imagination. harumph

Fisheye is one of my absolute favorites. (including the starlights.) >_< and i wholeheartedly feel he could play evil-gay.

My movie(s) would follow the manga, in which the starlights are always girls. otherwise he could pay guy-seiya. but he's cute enough to be yaten.

dont be so beastly.

i think he can bulk up his legs, at least enough for it to work. i mean, he's already been in dancing movies where there is a quite a bit of focus on his legs and we know he can run. so i don't think his legs are that big of a deal.

my main thing with the flash is that they may still think he's not tall enough. which according to the comic books, he's not.... but like i said, i think since his abilities don't rely on body mass or size and ofc they can film around his height if they have to, comic book nerds might let it slide.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on March 29th, 2010 01:54 am (UTC)
thats what i mean. -- I can't articulate today.
Beejeezbee on March 29th, 2010 12:28 pm (UTC)
While I totally agree he might be a bit shorter than Flash is in the comic, I think it wouldn't be really an issue.

Even for Captain America there were candidates on the final shortlist who were 5'10" and for Cap the statue it's really important. RDJ as Iron Man isn't taller as Zac either and on the other end, Hugh Jackman is way too tall for Wolverine.

I think they could easily work around that.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 29th, 2010 07:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah like I said they can work around it, but nerds may object... though ofc I think some of them have even suggested Emile Hirsch for the Flash who is even shorter. But he is a dumb choice for many reasons.
Beejeezbee on March 30th, 2010 12:19 pm (UTC)
I think it's more likely that the fanboys are going to bitch about his "lack of square chin" which seems to be a discussion with every superhero casting (since every comic book illustrator seems to draw his characters that way).

In the end neither one will matter - they will hate or love just based on image.

I always enjoy your analogies on rumours, such as this.

And I think I'd take Zac in any form of spandex :)

Although if he was to be Flash - he would have to lose those yellow boots LOL
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 29th, 2010 01:53 am (UTC)
i don't particularly care, but i think all the flash fans would differ with you re: the boots. lol.

I dont quite know how I would feel about this but I'll refrain from pre-judging.

I was one of the ones who when they announced Tobey McQuire would be Spiderman went "Are they nuts Tobey McQuire?" and I was very wrong
snowwhiteangsnowwhiteang on March 29th, 2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
Wow, all these rumours! Wonder which is true?!
Zac + costume of any kind = happy me :)

Mm the legs...I laughed so hard at the discussion over his legs :D

The quote about Spiderman is a bit strange to say the least, but like livingwell100 I will refrain from pre-juding. Flash Gordon is a lame name tho.

Loads of rumours flying around...!!
Audrey: zac/suit-upkylijah on March 29th, 2010 05:24 pm (UTC)
ps: did you see this?

MAOW estimated release: July:

Re: ps: did you see this?
i have seen that, though i'm not sure it's right. fwiw, amazon canada lists may 11th as the release date.

Re: ps: did you see this?
..and I'd rather believe amazon canada!
snowwhiteangsnowwhiteang on March 29th, 2010 06:08 pm (UTC)
sorry meant to say this is interesting, that RR was 'too muscly' and the project was shelved in 07
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 29th, 2010 07:19 pm (UTC)
WB stalled out on most of their comic properties but they've picked up again more recently and have already started filming Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds. Hopefully they won't stall on The Flash though but who knows? Of course, none of this means anything since it is basically all conjecture anyway, lol.
