Ezra Miller is the latest actor to step into the shoes speedster Barry Allen, better known to comic fans as The Flash.
If you weren’t already excited to see Miller take on the iconic superhero, chances are, his enthusiasm for getting to don the iconic crimson suit will be enough to convince you that he’s the right man for the job!
“Donning The Flash suit is one of the single most thrilling experiences I’ve ever known,” said Miller. “It’s like a samurai getting in his armor. Every day, I just felt like, so cool. It’s the greatest.”
Super suits aside, Miller also revealed that he’s got a lot of love for the character of Barry Allen, whom he describes as a “neurotic but altruistic individual.”
Whether on the big screen or through the comics themselves, Miller wrapped up by saying that he’s “excited to explore [Barry Allen]…for as long as possible.”
As wonderful as it is to hear that Miler is excited to follow Barry’s journey on the page, we’re definitely hoping he gets the opportunity on the big screen as well. Currently, DC’s solo Flash film has encountered a bit of a setback after losing its director, Seth Grahame-Smith earlier this year.
Things seemed to be going well after DC tapped Dope director Rick Famuyiwa to replace Smith, but unfortunately, Famuyiwa announced at the beginning of November that he’d chosen to leave the project due to “creative differences” with DC and Warner Bros.
Despite the string of bad luck, we’re hoping DC and Warner Bros., is able to find another talented individual to helm the project and bring the scarlet speedster’s story to life on the big screen! Until then, we’ll have to settle for knowing that at least we’ll get to see Miller’s rendition of The Flash in The Justice League!
The Justice League hits theaters on Nov. 17, 2017.
