While Grant Gustin stars as the Fastest Man Alive in The CW’s The Flash, actor Ezra Miller will fill the role for the DC Cinematic Universe’s iteration of the iconic character. He is expected to appear in 2017’s Justice League Part One before headlining his own film, which is set for a March 23rd, 2018 release. A cameo in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is also a possibility. Nothing else is known about Flash’s long-awaited movie, but while we wait for official news on the project, Miller has finally commented on landing the coveted role.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Miller discusses a wide variety of topics. As what THR is calling the actor’s “Most ‘pinch me’ moment” so far, he commented on how Batman v Superman and Justice League director Zack Snyder offered him the role of The Flash. “Zack Snyder told me on the phone that he wanted me to play the Flash while I was eating a tilapia in a small Central American village. That was definitely a moment that prompted me to question the fabric of my reality.” Not particularly revealing, but it’s nice to hear from the first actor to bring the Scarlet Speedster to life on the big screen. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
