Bradley Cooper Denies He'll Play 'The Flash'

Even with his post-"Hangover" buzz leading to the critical disasters "All About Steve" and "Case 39" being unceremoniously dumped into theaters, Bradley Cooper is still riding high.

The "A-Team" star was recently rumored to be the frontrunner for the role of D.C. Comics' adaptation of "The Flash," but Cooper himself seems to be in the denial phase of accepting the role. "I've never heard anything about it ever in my life. It's funny," he was quoted as saying to SuperHeroHype.

Like all casting ideas rumors, it's possible Cooper is simply on the top of some early studio wishlist and he and his agents haven't been contacted yet because the script is not yet complete (apparently the script, written by the same trio that wrote "Green Lantern," will be turned in around December).

It's also possible Cooper is playing the same card he turned over when confronted about starring as Face in this past summer's "A-Team." At first Cooper denied that he would appear in the TV remake, but of course later on he actually starred in the Joe Carnahan film (maybe he should have denied it in real life too). With "Harry Potter" about to end, Warner Bros. cash-cow genre franchise is about to expire so the studio will be looking to get deep into the D.C. archives. "Green Lantern" will be the first shot, D.C.'s "Iron Man" if you will, and if all goes well "The Flash" will follow. With or without Bradley Cooper, who of course was a "Green Lantern" casting finalist. Clearly studios think the actor has a superheroic look.
