Thread: Taika Watiti and Fkash Gordon

  1. #1

    Taika Watiti and Fkash Gordon

    First I heard he was doing an animated flash movie, now I read today he's veering it to live action. I think this guy would "get it" when it comes to Flash Gordon ). Curious if how they would do him in today's times. Can't be "blonde haired and blue eyes" and certainly can't make MIng resemble asian. years ago i thought of Chadwick Tatum as Flash and Gary Oldman as Ming

    Captain America and Thor are two popular blond adventure heroes right off the top of my head. I don't see it as a problem. As long as they go with a more of an alien (Defenders of the Earth) look and less stereotypical yellow peril I don't see Ming being an issue either. Ming Merchandise hasn't exactly been scarce the last several years. Heck, Max Von Sydow's Ming got several action figures and a Funko POP.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    And Hemsworth might be good for Flash. Gary Oldman for Ming would be pretty genius

    I'd like to see BOTH of those casting choices!

    Watiti can almost do no wrong, so this has potential.

    I just hope this isn't one of those Tim Burton/Dark Shadows situations where the match between director and subject seems perfect, and then it all goes horribly wrong. But I trust Watiti to deliver his usual brand of insane spectacle. I'm down for Oldman as Ming, but I think Hemsworth may be too identified as Thor to be Flash. If Chris Pine is done with Captain Kirk, I could see him as Flash.

    Chris Pine and Co are going back for another Trek so not quite done.

    I have my doubts about that coming to fruition...my I sincerely hope it DOES HAPPEN! That said, if Pine does get to play Kirk again...him playing Flash around the same time could be a conflict of interest.
