Ezra Miller wore "Lord of the Rings' cosplay to Comic-Con, then proceeded to steal his scenes as Barry Allen/The Flash in DC's "Justice League" trailer. Then he showed up for a few seconds in "Suicide Squad." And even though his solo "The Flash" film isn't scheduled for release until March 16, 2018, it's already one of the most anticipated films in the superhero world.
Miller told MTV News he's so excited to make the movie "I get goosebumps just thinking about it." He's currently shooting "Justice League" in London, then he, director Rick Famuyiwa, "Dope" actress Kiersey Clemons (who'll play Iris West), and the rest of the cast and crew will work on "The Flash."
Here's what he teased to MTV about "The Flash" movie:
"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 Rick'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."
When Miller joined the DC world as The Flash, some fans bristled in loyalty to Grant Gustin, who plays Barry Allen/The Flash on The CW TV show. But there's nothing but respect between the actors, even if they haven't met yet. "He's a boss," Miller said of Gustin. "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."
He dare not say! This guy is a character. Back in January, Grant issued a statement in support of Ezra as the film Flash:
Hey, Twitter. Stop putting words in my mouth. Hate that I felt the need to do this, but read this if you please. pic.twitter.com/uVeoGGYRez— Grant Gustin (@grantgust) January 22, 2016
