James Mangold Says He Would Like To Take On The Flash; Would Remove A Key Design Element From The Costume


flash_van-sciver_3f1The Wolverine is set to hit theaters later this week, and so far the film is getting mixed reviews from critics. Even despite that the film is tracking at around 80 million dollars for the weekend.

Director James Mangold recently did a Question and Answer through Yahoo where he took fans questions. Topics covered in the discussion were Winning back fans after X-Men Origins: Wolverine, how close is it to the source material, and possible sequels.

Another thing that he was asked was what DC character he might like to take on. While his first answer was Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, to which he said he has had conversions with Gaiman about, his next answer was a little more mainstream. On the complete other side of the universe I’ve always been a fan of The Flash,” he explained.

While he said he has always been a fan of The Flash there is one thing that he would change about the character. When talking about the costume he admitted, “Although the outfit would have to definitely change, with those little wigs on his ears.” The wings have always been a huge part of Flash’s design, ever since the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick , put on the helmet that had them on it.

While at the moment there are nothing emanate with The Flash movie (rumors are is that DC/WB is looking to release a movie in 2016), it’s interesting to see that a mainstream director like Mangold is interested in him. Although as a huge Flash fan, I do have a bit of an issue with him wanting to get rid of the wings.
