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:
