Chris Pine may have a lot on his plate at the moment - as Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams' rebooted Star Trek, and now Jack Ryan - but Ryan Reynolds proved even the most sought-after stars can find time to suit up for superhero action.
Pine was in the running to play Hal Jordan before Reynolds snagged the role, but the qualities that made him an ideal Jordan also apply to Barry Allen - explaining the pair's lasting friendship. WB shouldn't miss out twice.
Since Reynolds snagged the emerald ring first, it seems fitting that Pine should be cast as The Flash - the hero many thought Reynolds was born to play - although as the reliable do-gooder Allen, instead of wisecracking Wally West.
Pine's got the smarts to sell the athletic hero and hardworking scientist, while possessing enough humor (and star power) to get fans begging for a stand-alone movie.
