When the Flash arrives on the big screen in “Justice League,” he won’t be played be Grant Gustin, who stars as the character in The CW’s “The Flash.” Instead, Ezra Miller will take up the mantle of the Scarlet Speedster, and he’d love for his version of the character to meet up with Gustin’s in the Speed Force.
Miller and Gustin have never met, but Miller told MTV News that “he can’t wait” for them to race. “He’s a boss,” he shared. “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.”
Of course, Miller’s statement is far from a confirmation, as much as fans might like to see the the Flashes of Two Worlds meet up. However, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible; in “The Flash” Season 2, Gustin’s Barry Allen learned the existence of — and even visited — alternate Earths, encountering a doppelganger of himself. If the DC Films Universe follows in the show’s footsteps, they could very well be part of the same multiverse — but, at this point, that’s purely speculation.
Of his solo film, Miller said, “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 [director] Rick [Famuyiwa]’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.”
“Grant Morrison is my absolute Guruji when it comes to The Flash and the mythos of the comic book — these two-dimensional realities that we engage with in our three-dimensional world,” he added.
Miller will next appear as the Flash in “Justice League,” which stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons and J. K. Simmons and opens on November 17, 2017. Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes and more, “The Flash” returns to The CW on October 4 at 8 pm EST.
