Since the earliest days of Barry Allen’s adventures as The Flash — 1956’s Showcase #4 by Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino — the character has traditionally stored his costume compressed inside a ring, in one of the more fun and archetypal elements of the Silver Age of DC Comics.
Yet if you’re expecting to see it on the big screen this November in Justice League, Flash actor Ezra Miller wants fans to know now not to get their hopes up.
“I can confirm, spoiler alert, his suit does not pop out of his ring [in the movie],” Miller told Entertainment Weekly in an article published today from an interview in June. “Things have to progress, you know? Original Barry Allen was clearly an incredibly, incredibly clever scientist. We acknowledge and respect that.”
Yet Miller wants fans to to remain optimistic about similar parts of the character’s mythos that may be in Justice League, or the still-in-development The Flash: Flashpoint film.
“It was a little hard for us to sell in this version of this universe right now,” Miller said of the ring, with “right now” giving some hope it could be possible in the future. “Bear with us! There’s gonna be other cool things.”
On The CW’s live-action The Flash TV show, Barry Allen — Grant Gustin version — also doesn’t have a costume ring, but the Reverse-Flash used one in season one of the series.
Justice League is scheduled for release on Nov. 17.
