Got a question for you comic book folks: If you were producing a movie version of The Flash, who is the man you'd want sitting in the director's chair? The guy who wrote Dark City, Batman Begins and all three Blade movies -- or the man who gave you Just Married, Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther and Night at the Museum? Well, as Jessica B. told you just a few days ago, the former (David S. Goyer) is out of the picture -- and today we learn that the latter (Shawn Levy) has inherited the gig.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "elements of Goyer's script will be used in the development process," which means a "story by" credit, at best. Also, Mr. Levy apparently has "no intention of making Flash a comedy," but a lighter touch is clearly what's being asked for here. WB doesn't want an angst-ridden and brooding Flash, I guess. And hey, it could be worse; they could have given the project to Joel Schumacher. For this unfamiliar with The Flash, he's the one who can run ultra-super-fast.
