It's been clear for a while now, from Justice League footage and from interviews, that Ezra Miller has fully embraced his role as The Flash, going so far as to identify himself as "the Fastest Man Alive" in a recent Japanese promo. In a film in which the 24-year-old actor shares the screen with the likes of Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck and Jason Momoa, his energy and enthusiasm apparently helped the Scarlet Speedster to emerge from test screenings as a fan favorite.
That's according to Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment's president and chief creative officer, who appeared Wednesday at the National Association of Theatre Owners fall summit to promote the next installment of the DC Extended Universe. As related by Chris Sylvia of Regal Entertainment Group, Johns said Miller's Flash "is the collective favorite coming out of Justice League."
Johns ended his presentation by debuting a new trailer for the film, which suggests one may receive wide release soon.
Early buzz for Justice League -- not just Miller! -- has been positive, with viewers describing the film as "epic." It reportedly even received high marks from one attendee of an early screening who didn't enjoy Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad.
The praise for Miller's Flash will undoubtedly fuel more questions about the status of Flashpoint (previously titled simply The Flash), which is apparently getting a new script but still doesn't have a director or a release date.
Opening Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
