We’ll receive a proper introduction to Ezra Miller’s Flash in Justice League, but after that, the Scarlet Speedster is headlining his own film, which reportedly begins production next year in London. Rick Famuyiwa is directing the movie, which will co-star Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. In an interview with MTV News, Miller comments on the tone of The Flash, while praising his director and co-star.
Miller says that the plan is for The Flash to be an “extremely fun” and “deeply human” installment of the DC Extended Universe, and he has nothing but positive things to say about Famuyiwa. “I think there’s just an intention to make something extremely fun and something superhuman and something deeply human. It’s the thing we’re all trying to do, but I think Rick’s mind and his heart are in an excellent place, and his expertise as a filmmaker, as evidenced by Dope, all come together as very exciting factors to me.”
Meanwhile, Miller calls Clemons “amazing,” teasing their chemistry. “I had the opportunity to read with her and do some explorative acting in our chemistry read… the results of these experiments clearly were positive. I’m just deeply excited about what these people carry in their hearts, and I’m excited about the radical intention that everybody seems to be bringing to the genesis chamber of this film.”
There has been plenty of comparisons and contrasting between DC Films’ Flash and DC television’s Flash (played by Grant Gustin). This has led to some silly feuds between comic book fans. However, Miller and Gustin have been extremely supportive of one another, and the latter continues that sentiment here. “[Gustin is] a boss. I can’t wait to see him, eye to eye, adrift in the Speed Force – our eyes will lock and, in that moment, we will both know the truth. What truth? I dare not say.”
Additionally, Miller has spoken with comic book writer Grant Morrison in preparation for the role. For his comments on that, click HERE.
The Flash was previously slated for a March 16th, 2018 release date. However, Warner Bros. recently slated the Tomb Raider reboot on that same date. A new date for The Flash has yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
