Chris Pine a contender for ‘Flash’ Chris Pine’s star is soaring.

The golden haired boy is being sought to play the title role in Warner Bros. adaptation of DC Comic “The Flash.”

Screen Rant claims that Pine is at the top of the studio’s list to play the speedy superhero.

Apparently, “Green Lantern” scribe Marc Guggenheim is co-writing “Flash” with Michael Green and Greg Berlanti.

There are several different versions of “The Flash” and the movie is rumored to focus on the original Flash Barry Allen.

Pine was originally buzzed to be “Captain America” but the role was awarded to Chris Evans.

“The Flash” is currently scheduled for a 2013 release.

    The original Flash was Jay Garrick, not Barry Allan. Barry was the original sliver age Flash, who was created when DC decided to re-introduce superheroes in the mid-1950s.

    Rex is correct. Jay Garrick was the original Flash, starring in Flash Comics from 1940 to ’49. Barry Allen, the second Flash, ran (no pun intended) for thirty years, from 1956 to 1985, and was revived last year, making him the current Flash. Wally West, once Barry’s sidekick Kid Flash, replaced Barry as the Flash in 1986 and was the star of the magazine for over twenty years after that. So Barry Allen wasn’t the original Flash, but he’s had the longest track record (OK, that pun was intended).
