While discussing what is behind some of the delays for the upcoming The Flash movie, Ezra Miller revealed the film will feature a "Speedster Multiverse."
"We're talking about sparking a whole new universe," Miller said. "It's not just the DC Multiverse. It's the Speedster Multiverse."

"The Speedsters are the ones who connect the disparate pieces," he continued. "Marvel is the universe; it's one world with all of the same characters. DC is a multiverse. All these stories with different realities, different versions of characters, and the speedsters are the ones who move through it all. They're like the connecting bridge between all these collaged parts."
If Miller is to be believed, The Flash could possibly feature Barry Allen traveling throughout DC's Multiverse, along with the appearance of other DC Speedsters. When The Flash was rumored to adapt 2011's Flashpoint comic book event, the Multiverse was thought to play a major role in the film. However, with countless delays, changes in directors and rewrites, details on the movie have remained sparse until now.
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. The film is finally expected to head into production later this year for a 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.
