Graphic artist Boss Logic has created some inspiring pieces of art work over the past few years. He’s one of the leading artists to imagine Hollywood actors as some of the most famous comic book characters. After the recent casting announcement as Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker, he put up two renditions of Phoenix as the Joker. Needless to say they look stunning.
However, he also recently did a rendition for DC Films’ upcoming Flashpoint movie. He made his own casting choice this time with Kevin Bacon becoming the Reverse Flash also known as Eobard Thawne.
Take a look:
I actually really like this casting choice. Kevin Bacon is no stranger to comic book films and he’s no stranger to playing a villain. Bacon was exceptional in X-Men: First Class as X-Men villain Sebastian Shaw. He could definitely pull off the villainous Eobard Thawne in the Flashpoint film.
Flashpoint might be one of the most anticipated DC Extended Universe films. There have been a ton of rumors about the film, many of them revolving around Ben Affleck’s Batman. It’s more than likely, the film could be Affleck’s last as Batman.
But Affleck’s Batman isn’t the only reason the film has a ton of hype. The film represents a potential new starting point for DC Films and Warner Bros.
In the comics, Barry Allen travels back in time to prevent the murder of his mother. However, by going back in time and preventing his mother’s murder, Barry creates an alternate world where heroes are villains and villains are heroes. But the worst part is the brutal war that wages between Wonder Woman’s Themyscira and Aquaman’s Atlantis. It causes the deaths of millions and has the world on the brink of total annihilation.
If the film does anything like the comic series, we could see a completely different DC Extended Universe by the end of the film.
