I definitely don't want to see that. I want something more akin to the 90s show. That's the Flash I know best. I've never seen the character as lighthearted despite how he was presented in Justice League or whatever.
Well, that's the thing about the '90s show -- it changed drastically in tone over the course of its season. It started out trying to be as dark and serious as the Burton Batman, but by the season finale it was at full-on Adam West levels of campiness. And really, even well before that, the show's Barry had become more lighthearted than he was in the pilot where he was all about avenging his brother. Heck, as early as the fourth episode (the third one aired) they introduced the recurring love interest that he had a fairly light and comic romance with.
