Rumor of the Day: Warner Bros. wants Pacific Rim star as the Flash

Looks like Warner Bros. are working under the assumption that the Justice League movie is going to happen.

While our understanding has been that a Justice League movie is not guaranteed unless Man of Steel is a bona fide blockbuster success, that doesn't mean producers are resting on their laurels. On the contrary, things are already happening. Rumor has it that design sketches are already being drawn up for the film. Most notable is that drawings of the Flash are allegedly being made up to look like Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim actor Charlie Hunnam.

Now, that could mean anything. It could just mean the artist is a fan. But it's just as likely that Hunnam has at least heard something from Warner Bros. that they're interested in having him in the hypothetical film. It's also possible that negotiations have already begun. After all, a movie like this is a commitment, and Hunnam is a busy actor. If Warner Bros. want him, they need to lock down his time now.

What do you think? Would you be down for Hunnam as the fastest man alive?
