Tom Hanks Wants a Shot at 'The Flash'

During his press tours for Captain Phillips actor Tom Hanks reveals his thoughts on the superhero movie genre and how he actually has been wanting to be in a comic book movie for years:

"No, [it's not a choice], they don't ask me and I keep trying...Come on, I can do it [laughs]. Let me play a bad guy, let me play the bad guy against Batman. I'll do anything, call me. They've never asked. What do I have to do? God, I want to throw a shield at somebody. I want that. And I don't want to play the guy in the suit who tells the superheroes what's going on, I don't want to be that guy. 'Well, you know Batman...Captain America, Iron Man, here's what we've discovered', I don't want to be that guy. I want to get in there, I want to play The Flash or something like that. They'll never give me a chance."

Now before you jump on the "Hanks is to old!" train may we remind you there are multiple Flash's.

During the 1940's Jay Garrick was the very first Flash to grace the covers of comic books everywhere. Now who knows if Garrick is in the current draft of The Flash script by Greg Berlanti,  and Marc Guggenheim.

If Garrick's Flash cameo's in the upcoming film would you want him as Jay Garrick's The Flash?
