This is different with characters who have decades long histories and a lot deeper backgrounds to them than "Wants to be a superhero, can't because of easily explained reasons."
You are confusing "have had a lot of stories written about them" with "have a core origin/back-story" - the first are largely irrelevant, the second can be told in minutes. What in the Flash's back-story requires more than a few lines about "I was in an accident"?

Which possible character that they select for a JLA film cannot be boiled down to the essentials with no great difficulty?
