A comic book fansite has insisted that Brad Pitt would be perfect in superhero fancy dress for a movie adaptation of a classic character.

Writing for ComicBookMovie.com, an author referred to as Gab said he would love to see the Ocean's Eleven star sporting Flash fancy dress to play the DC creation.

He argued that this would really get the world's attention and would allow the company to hold its own against all the recent Marvel films.

"Seeing Brad rip through the streets as DC's red and yellow lightning bolt would definitely prove … to Hollywood that Brad Pitt should have been a superhero a long time ago," Gab commented.

Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper from The A-Team has been denying rumours that he is lined up to play Flash. He told IGN that he has never even heard of the movie, let alone been cast in it.
