Ezra Miller recently dished out his own take of his upcoming “The Flash” role for the Hollywood big screen. The 23-year-old actor was on the set of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, according to Entertainment Weekly, when he gave fans his own take of playing the “Scarlet Speedster” and his expectations of what he will bring to the table as an actor.
“Well, [first] it’s going to be a movie, I’d like for it to be an exploration of a human being, a multi-dimensional human being, to speak…Wow, I just made such a pun, without meaning to….I’d like the character to have many dimensions. But really, I’d like him to have the usual dimensions we know and love, and then some extra ones that are part of the amazing consideration of this superhero. I hope to realize him as a person, and I think what’s most exciting for me in superhero mythologies is when we feel the humanity of someone who is heroic — or the heroism of someone who is a flawed, deeply human person.” Miller said.
The “Perks of Being a Wallflower” actor is making it clear especially to DC comic books fans especially that Warner Bros. Pictures is banking on him to portray a diverse version of “The Flash” from the ongoing version on the small screen that is protecting Central City on The CW network.
Grant Gustin, who portrays television’s own speedster, saves the day every Tuesday night. This emergence of “Flash” from two different mediums has perplexed certain fans with some of them airing out their comments that there could only be one actor that can rightfully play the “Speedster”, as cited by some most recent remarks coming from The Wall Street Journal:
“DC is gonna get people confused and not wanna watch anything grant gustin is the flash plain and simple and if he has to stop filming or cut a season short cause of a movie we will understand and wil make the series more valuable to us and get new viewers.” a user named sandom wrote.
“Grant is fantastic as The Flash and he should also be in the movie. His personality is one of the reasons the show is such a success. I think WB is doing an injustice to Grant for not having him in the movie.” the user Ken said.
Another anonymous commenter added: “remeber the Fantastic Four this year and how it did that could be the flash in 2018 if enough people don’t like who you cast for the movie” – anonymous wrote
However, Comic Book also reported that fans should not be troubled which such an arrangement as Miller’s character which will debut in “Justice League: Part One (2017)” and perhaps a “walk-in” in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be donning a much longer hair, a more ripped physique and a costume straight from a post-apocalypse era.
