With films like Perks of Being a Wallflower and We Need To Talk About Kevin under his belt, it looks like Ezra Miller will be taking on a whole new persona and stepping into some super hero shoes as it’s confirmed he’ll be the next Flash. The news came from Warner Bros CEO, Kevin Tsujihara, as he spoke about a number of new revelations regarding the DC Universe. He spoke about how the DC Movie Universe will be completely separate from the DC Television Universe, pretty important considering new The Flash TV series stars actor Grant Gustin. As well as that, the new Flash movie will come after Zack Snyder’s Justice League Part One, coming out in 2017.
Miller is a surprising but kind of great choice for The Flash, his comedic talent and irresistible charm is going to ooze from this character but as we’ve seen in We Need To Talk About Kevin, he really can pump up the drama at the drop of a hat. This has got to be a good combo, right? Exciting stuff for the DC Movie Universe but, anybody else kind of feel like they’re rushing into all this too quickly? Batman vs Superman alone is cramming in Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), into a movie where we first meet Ben Affleck as Batman. Can I get some stand alone movies? No? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what all these creative masterminds have hidden in those mega brains of theirs. In DC, we trust.
