In the four years since Warner Bros. announced the film, The Flash has passed through a handful of drafts, and as many directors, and changed its title not once but twice, leading fans to wonder whether it will ever be released. However, star Ezra Miller assures it's only a matter of when, and how awesome the final product will be.
Appearing in fishnet stockings, heels and bunny ears in the new issue of Playboy, Miller discussed his latest release, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, his sexuality, and, yes, hopes for The Flash.
“Nothing is ever certain in this world, but as certain as things get, we’re making a fucking crazy-dope Flash movie,” he told the magazine. “It’s one of my great life dreams, and just the fact that we’re on the way — anyone who knows about Barry Allen knows he may arrive late, very late, but once he gets there, it’s all solved. We have to trust.”
Miller debuted as Barry Allen in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before reprising his role, in cameo, in Suicide Squad, and then more extensively in 2017's Justice League, in which he emerged as one of the few bright spots in an otherwise-divisive film. Since then, his Flash has been running in place. Now, with directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the film is finally expected to head into production late next year, for potential 2021 release, in part due to Miller's schedule but also because of work on the script. It was originally targeted for release in March 2018.
Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, The Flash stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West and Billy Crudup as Henry Allen.
