Gal Gadot, Margot Robbie, Ezra Miller & Many Others Appear in Videos for DC FanDome

The one thing that 2020 will actually be good for is starting off the biggest DC event ever. It actually took a pandemic to have WB come up with a convention for all things DC. The DC FanDome is going to be a virtual event this year, but if it turns out to be successful (which it will), then we could hope for it to become a real convention like Comic Con, that takes place every year, or perhaps once in every 2 years just like Disney’s D23 Expo. In the way that the likes of Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Margot Robbie, Zachary Levi and many others are promoting the Dome truly makes it seem something special. Here, watch a few videos that the actors attending this mega event have shot along with many cosplayers:

Gal Gadot – Wonder Woman

Dwayne Johnson – Black Adam

Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn

Ezra Miller – The Flash

Zachary Levi – Shazam

Javicia Leslie – Batwoman

Cress Williams – Black Lightning

Brec Bassinger – Stargirl

It’s good to see such positivity, and it’s surprising to see Ezra Miller back in a good way after the whole “Choking” incident. Just recently, a teaser for the Dome revealed the 100 names that are going to be attending the big virtual event. But it was later revealed that a total of 300 guests will be there at the event, who will announce a bunch of stuff about the DC movies (both live-action & animated), TV shows (again both live-action & animated), Games & obviously, comics.

All the exciting names like Matt Reeves, Robert Pattinson, James Gunn, John Cena, Idris Elba, Patty Jenkins, Andy Muschietti, David F. Sandberg, Zack Snyder, James Wan, Patrick Wilson and many others have been confirmed for this event. But the likes of Noah Centineo, Michael Keaton, Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and a few others that are expected to attend the event were not on the 100 people list. So, we can assume that many of these names may have been held back to surprise us.

But, Jason Momoa actually seems to have dropped out of the event. Back in June when the FanDome event was announced, the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Zack Snyder, and many others Jason Momoa had also promoted it. But Cosmicbook.news reports that Momoa has deleted his Instagram post from June, and his name was obviously not on the 100 people list. Every lead actor of a major upcoming DC movie has been named on the list. It is just the 4 actors from the Snyder Cut whose names are missing. Jason Momoa is supposed to star in Aquaman 2, so his name should definitely have been revealed. There’s no point of keeping it hidden as a surprise. This not only fuels suspicion for him dropping out of the event, but it also makes us doubt whether he’d continue playing Aquaman in the sequel.

Surely, he wouldn’t have backed out of playing the King of Atlantis. It has been, and will continue to be his biggest role in the industry. So, what is the reason behind this drop out from the event? It isn’t like a bunch of films are under production. His schedule cannot be packed. Maybe there could be a BTS dispute. Or maybe we’re putting too much of a thought into it. Let’s hope that his name has been held back as a surprise only, because the DC event will seem incomplete without its Aquaman just like it will feel incomplete without Batfleck.

Gamers are excited for this event because WB is going to announce 3 new DC games – Injustice 3, Suicide Squad & an untitled Batman Game. Us DC movie fans are excited because we’d get new trailers for Justice League, Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad & The Batman. Along with that, films like Black Adam, The Flash, Aquaman 2 & Shazam 2 will reveal their cast and other details. Finally, on the TV side, we will find out about the Arrowverse, Justice League Dark, Green Lantern & all the other DC TV shows.

It’s a good time to be a DC fan!

The Plot of the Scrapped Flash Movie (Co-Written By Ezra Miller) Revealed

The Flash has gone through many-many creative changes as several directors have helmed and left the film. Seth Grahame-Smith was the first to helm the film, but then in June 2016, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa was announced as the new director for The Flash. But he also left due to creative differences. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein then took on the project and they were coming up with a rather lighter & happier story for The Flash.

The Flash Ezra Miller New Comic Flash Suit

It is known that those two directors also left the project as Ezra Miller wasn’t a fan of their pitch, and he worked with writer Grant Morrison to come up with his own pitch. Even this story was not picked up by WB as they hired ‘It’ director Andy Muschietti to work on the story of The Flash. We don’t know anything about the script of the 2022 Flash movie apart from the fact that will involve a Flashpoint story and deal with the Multiverse in some way. What we have found out is the pitch that Ezra Miller and Grant Morrison had submitted to Warner Bros. around late March of 2019.

A new Reddit Post submitted by someone who claims to have worked for WB gives us this “VERY detailed draft of The Flash screenplay,” as he/she states that it was darker and more along the direction of the DCEU that Snyder had taken. Clearly Miller was a fan of it. So, here are the details of the draft in which the story begins a while after Justice League (whichever version you may want to consider):

– The Flash has already been established as a hero in Central City, active for a year and a half in the public eye.

– While it’s not an origin, we’re presented with flashbacks including: the night his mother died, Barry getting struck by lightning, up to him even coming up with various designs of the suit (even a bright red onesie as a nod). There’s even a callback to BvS of that surveillance footage scene in the convenience store seen from Barry’s perspective! 

– Barry and Iris are no longer a couple. They tried but couldn’t make it work (more on that later). They’re still close as she’s the only one in Central City who knows that Barry’s the Flash (I wonder how).

– Barry’s still learning about the limits of his abilities and the speed force and the concept of time travel. He even takes it a step further & travels to Keystone, Pennsylvania to speak with a physicist who happens to be an expert on it…

– He meets a… Professor Peter Garrick, who mysteriously knows Barry’s name before he even introduces himself, and basically breaks down how speed can break into time travel. But he also stresses the ramifications of it. 

– Barry’s haunted by his mother’s death and a red-eyed monster from that night. His trauma and paranoia in losing another loved one is the main reason he couldn’t make it work with Iris.

– The film’s plot revolves around Barry investigating a murder of a detective and Barry’s mentor, John Alvins, who watched over him as a child. The investigation is botched and the CCPD catches the wrong guy, but Barry could already figure that isn’t the case so he takes it a step further and investigates it as the Flash.

– It’s revealed that Alvins’ partner, Officer Lisa Snart killed him, in order to distract the CCPD while an alpha-level metahuman chase. They were after Sam Scudder aka the Mirror Master, who broke out Lisa’s brother – LEONARD Snart in a prison convoy passing through Central City.

– Snart decides to stay in Central City with Scudder to track down a scientist in hiding; Dr. Howard who experimented on Scudder. (Also, the story takes place around the winter so Leonard’s sporting that winter coat). With the help of his sister, they even rebuild his cold gun.

– Snart and Scudder go on a rampage through Central City to track down Howard and eventually find him. Snart holds him back from killing him, and instead offers to spare Howard in exchange for one small favor.

– Flash eventually tracks them down at their hideout, and finds himself hopelessly outgunned. Scutter’s abilities catch Barry by surprise while Snart freezes Barry’s leg and breaks it, forcing him to run away. On top of that, the Flash is framed for killing Alvins. He barely makes it out alive when chased by the police. 

flash-movie-plot-co-written-by-ezra-miller

Now this is a classic move as far as superhero movies are concerned. The Flash is an OP character, and something in the story needs to bring in to a level where his villains could over power him. Hence, the leg break situation seems very understandable. So far, the story seems cool. Even if this story isn’t from the draft that Miller and Morrison didn’t submit, but instead the Reddit user wrote it himself, we have to give him credit for his work. What happens next is also a plot point that you’d recognize if you have watched The Amazing Spider-Man. The redditor continues:

– Barry barely makes it alive to Iris at her apartment and she takes care of him and helps him recuperate.

– Their once tumultuous relationship begins to blossom once again as they actually spend more time with one another. Naturally, she doesn’t buy that the Flash did anything wrong and writes pieces online in defense of him much to Barry’s dismay (no negative attention wanted).

– Meanwhile, “Captain Cold” and Sam Scudder (now in his armor) go on bank sprees while the Flash, public enemy, is nowhere to be found. They deliberately avoid killing any officer or anyone at all.

– Paralleling his father’s situation as he was framed too, Barry goes to confide in his father in jail. But on the TV, Scudder’s KIDNAPPED Iris with Snart sending a public message to the Flash to make a choice to stop him from leaving or save Iris. Naturally, he picks Iris and is forced to get back in the suit.

– In a violent confrontation on the bridge, Flash finds himself surrounded by police while trying to take down Scudder and is forced to fight both of them. Iris is killed in the crossfire.

– Impulsive and in rage, Barry runs fast enough in order time travel to save Iris but lands in an area of the speed force which is much more frightening than he anticipated.

– In the speed force, he glimpses a familiar red-eyed demon briefly before being attacked by a zombified version of a… Flash?

black flash

This Zombiefied version of a “Flash” isn’t properly revealed. But we’ve watched enough of The Flash to know that it is none other than Black Flash. As some of you may have suspected, Professor Peter “Garrick” has a crucial role to play in the story. And you’ll be able to figure one what that role is right about now:

– All of a sudden, he’s saved by another speedster that happens to be in the speed force. Who is revealed to be… Professor Garrick? At least a slightly younger version. In his own Flash suit.

– Going by Jay, who doesn’t recognize Barry at all, guides him out the speed force.

– Barry successfully manages to travel one day into the past to save her, easily takes down and arrests Scudder and captures Lisa Snart, exposing her. He even builds himself a new suit.

– With nowhere left to go, Snart lures Flash into an abandoned subway tunnel, injecting himself with an untested dose of Howard’s formula as his Plan B to give him abilities.

flash-movie-plot-co-written-by-ezra-miller

– Now a metahuman, he’s able to manipulate colder temperature and freeze objects. This leads to an epic battle with the Flash. His speed is weakened by the cold so Flash has to contend with other options in beating him, to which he does in a physical brawl, to which he’s barely successful.

– Unfortunately for Snart, the cold temperatures overwhelm his body as he’s unable to suddenly adapt to them, and it ends up killing him.

– Flash is proven innocent thanks to help from Iris. Barry and Iris are finally back together. Happy times.

– With the truth revealed, Barry meets with Professor Garrick again. Garrick is deliberately vague with his words, but assures him that two speedsters cannot exist at the same time, meaning that Jay is powerless. 

Flash Movie Plot

– It’s heavily implied that Jay Garrick is from another timeline or universe all together as there hasn’t been a history any existence of any other Flash. But it’s deliberately left ambiguous.

– Garrick gives him a ring for his new suit, assuring him that… “I don’t need it anymore.”

– And FINALLY, he warns Barry not play with the fabric of space and time as it can create some kind of…. paradox.

– The final scenes show Lisa Snart in jail swearing to avenge her brother and vows revenge on Flash for killing him. And Barry sitting with his father, revealing to him that he’s the Flash and assures him that his mother’s killer is still out there. 

As I’ve mentioned above, this draft seems very descriptive. It is has the makings of a good first movie, but it also has similar elements to The CW’s The Flash (which has run for 6 seasons so there were always going to be a lot of similarities). The dark move of Iris’ death is nice, but as I just stated, it has happened in The Flash (specifically in Season 1). The unique part in this story is Leonard Snart becoming a meta human.

Flash Movie Plot

Like it or hate it. We know for a fact that this story won’t be happening as WB is looking to take the direction of the Multiverse & Flashpoint at the same time. Let’s see if they can successfully pull off aligning Michael Keaton’s Batman Universe with the DCEU.

The Flash – Check Out Ezra Miller in New Comic Accurate Flash Suit

The Flash Ezra Miller New Comic Flash Suit:

Just recently, we got a major news update for The Flash as Michael Keaton was reported to be in talks to join Ezra Miller in the upcoming Flashpoint movie. Now we’re waiting for the DC FanDome event as a lot more news updates from The Flash will be revealed during the event. But for now, let’s look at this amazing fan made concept art for a comic accurate suit suggestion of the Flash:

The Flash Ezra Miller New Comic Flash Suit

Honestly, I find this concept much better than the suit that Zack Snyder came up with. But then again, that was the first suit, and Flash’s suit was always going to change. Zack Snyder even hinted at the fact that Bruce Wayne will design a new suit for The Flash at the end of Justice League. Maybe we’ll get to see that new suit in the upcoming Snyder Cut. It could probably be close to the one that christ_ave41 has created above.

Even if we don’t get to see a new suit in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, we would definitely get it in The Flash movie. That’s because new suits in films are a means to sell new action figures. Secondly, Ezra Miller’s cameo in Crisis on Infinite Earths on The CW earlier this year wasn’t just a set up for the DCEU taking the Multiverse route with their films. But it was also a set up for The Flash to get a new suit because Miller’s Barry Allen actually loved the subtlety and lightness of the suit that Grant Gustin wears in his TV series.

The Flash arrives on June 3, 2022. It will star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. We’d know more about the film at the DC FanDome event on August 22.

WB Might Drop Ezra Miller from Fantastic Beasts & Flash After Choking Video

It seems that The Flash really is cursed when it comes to the movie version of the character. The film was initially slated for a 2018 release. It has had at least 4 directorial changes by now. Just when things were looking perfect, the Coronavirus pandemic made a dent on the plans for WB’s Fantastic Beasts 3 & The Flash. Furthermore, a recent video of Ezra Miller choking a fan hasn’t played well for the actor, and since he is the common link between Fantastic Beasts & Flash, things may not be looking nice for both of those films.

The fans are livid over this video where a couple of fans were playfully asking Miller to fight them, and Miller ended up shoving a girl into the ground by choking her. We still don’t know whether he also did this playfully, but looking at the video, things seemed pretty serious. For an actor or a celebrity who people really up to, maintaining discipline & a good public image is really crucial. That’s because just mere seconds are enough to take away the fame & glory that they’ve earned over the years.

This little video might be forgotten in the coming months, but there’s actually a chance that it might blow back big time for Ezra Miller. According to We Got This Covered, WB is actually looking to drop Ezra Miller from the Fantastic Beasts franchise. What’s worse is that they could also end up canceling The Flash movie entirely. Miller was supposed to shoot Fantastic Beasts 3 last month, and then he would have begun work on The Flash later this year. The actor could end up losing both of these projects. Since the Intel about Fantastic Beasts & The Flash comes from WGTC, we have to take it as a grain of salt. But anything could happen.

All we want is that WB should not take a hasty decision like Disney did with James Gunn. They should first check out what really happened and then decide. What say?

Ezra Miller’s The Flash Finally Gets a Release Date

The Flash Finally Release Date:

Finally, it looks like Ezra Miller’s The Flash is getting the attention that it needed. After having 3 directorial changes, the movie has finally found its stagnant director in the name of Andy Muschietti. The Flash is supposed to go under production after Ezra Miller is done shooting Fantastic Beasts 3. That’s what’s happening because we’ve finally got a release date from Warner Bros. The Flash will arrive on July 1, 2022.

Aquaman 2 The Others Worlds of DC

So this is what WB’s DC movie schedule looks like – Birds of Prey (February 7, 2020), Wonder Woman 1984 (June 5, 2020), The Batman (June 25, 2021), The Suicide Squad (August 7, 2021), Black Adam (December 21, 2021), The Flash (July 1, 2022), Aquaman 2 (December 16, 2022). WB could either release 2 DC movies in 2022, or we could see Shazam! 2 or perhaps Green Lantern Corps added somewhere between The Flash & Aquaman 2 or some time before The Flash.

The Flash

It is a good date that WB has chosen for The Flash because there’s no competition from MCU until later in the month. And no other big film is scheduled around the film. Finally, the big screen will do justice to the fastest man alive. Director Muschietti talked about tackling the Flash. Here’s what he said:

“What captivated me about The Flash is the human drama in it. The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.”

Release Date

A while ago, Ezra Miller talked about The Flash. The way he talks about this project has kept the fans motivated. He said:

“Anyone who knows anything about Barry Allen knows that he’s always late. But then when he arrives, he gets stuff done. And that’s definitely how this film’s production schedule is proceeding. We’re a little late. But the reason why we are late, and this is the honest to god truth… We’re all — and I include myself in this — we are very meticulously focused on making a movie that’s not just one of the greatest superhero movies that we can possibly make. This movie’s also going to be a gift to the fans.”

Let’s see if the film turns out to be better than the TV Show.

New Report Suggests that WB Might Replace Ezra Miller’s Flash With Wally West

One of the most confusing & convoluted projects of WB has been the solo Flash movie. It just never really managed to find its footing. The original release was supposed to be in early 2018 and right now we’re in 2019 & we still don’t know squat about the film. Every one aspect of Zack Snyder that didn’t really work is getting the boot. Batman, Superman & Cyborg have already got it and now it seems that Ezra Miller’s The Flash might just get it as well.

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

Until last year, John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein were attached as the directors and they seemed to have got everything right. We were told that they did come up with a light-hearted film with 4 villains involved. But then the reports mentioned that Ezra Miller was not on board with that. Miller wanted the film to be a little darker in tone and more in line with the foundation that Snyder laid down. So he took it upon himself to write the film alongside Grant Morrison.

Now the two directors are still involved with the movie but there’s just a whole lot of confusion that surrounds the project as well. Apparently, Variety very recently reported that The Flash movie with Ezra Miller is not dead, and Miller will begin shooting the film as soon as he wraps up Fantastic Beasts 3. Here’s what the website wrote:

“Miller, who plays the ultra-swift superhero The Flash, will get his DC Universe standalone film as soon as he wraps up his work on the Harry Potter spinoff series Fantastic Beasts.”

But given that we’ve heard a similar report right after Fantastic Beasts 2 hit the theatres, Variety could still be reporting this based on that. Now, according to the latest report coming from We Got This Covered’s close sources, Warner Bros are actually considering a new version of The Flash instead of Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen.

Currently, they are playing with the idea of bringing in Wally West instead of Barry Allen for the upcoming film. This report is in direct contrast with what Ezra Miller had to say a while ago. According to him:

“Anyone who knows anything about Barry Allen knows that he’s always late. But then when he arrives, he gets stuff done. And that’s definitely how this film’s production schedule is proceeding. We’re a little late. But the reason why we are late, and this is the honest to god truth… We’re all — and I include myself in this — we are very meticulously focused on making a movie that’s not just one of the greatest superhero movies that we can possibly make. This movie’s also going to be a gift to the fans.”

So, it would be safe to say that anything related to the solo Flash movie is a complete mess. We don’t know what’s going on. Different websites are reporting different news updates. WB is also not going to Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this time, so don’t expect any clarity from there as well. Given how messy things seem to be right now, The Flash could actually be up for a reboot with Wally West. It could be set in the same Universe as The Batman, just like Supergirl reportedly will be, and we could later get a Multiverse Justice League movie.

DCEU

Let’s see what happens. WB is bringing us Joker (Oct 4), Birds of Prey (February 2020), Wonder Woman 1984 (June 2020), The Batman (June 2021), The Suicide Squad (August 2021) & Aquaman 2 (December 2022) next. After that, we could expect a Shazam! sequel and The Black Adam movie to come out in either 2022 or 2023. But we just cannot expect The Flash solo film to come out before any of these projects because all of them stand on solid grounds, while The Flash doesn’t!

The Flash Movie Will Begin Production Right After Ezra Miller Wraps Fantastic Beasts 3

DC’s current state is being loved by the fans. Sure it’s not what everyone really wanted because they just couldn’t do the whole shared Universe thing as well as they could have. But still, WB is coming up with some really exciting individual projects that have fans all riled up. They seem to have learned their lesson and are doing things in the right way. But the thing that still stays common is that they’ve got no confirmation of projects like The Flash, which should have launched in the theatres by now.

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

Justice League brought 3 new characters in the flesh and all three should have gotten their own solo movies. WB managed to get a solid director for Aquaman so it stayed put, came out & was a massive success. Cyborg was supposed to get his own film by 2020, but WB never made a move on it, and they never will. But you could argue that a character as popular & mainstream as the Flash should have gotten his own solo film by now.

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

It was supposed to come out by 2018, even before Aquaman. But with the constant change of directors and the project storyline, the project never really found its footing. The second director that WB brought into play was Rick Famuyiwa. He seemed to have a clear picture of what he wanted to do, but WB wasn’t onboard with that, and he departed due to creative differences. It was after that that WB seemed to have found the right directors for the project.

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein seemed to have got everything right, and we were told that they did come up with a light-hearted film with 4 villains involved. But then the reports mentioned that Ezra Miller was not on board with that. Miller wanted the film to be a little darker in tone and more in line with the foundation that Snyder laid down. So he took it upon himself to write the film alongside Grant Morrison.

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

Well, there hasn’t been any further report on that and Ezra Miller’s future with the project always seemed to be in jeopardy. But it is now that Variety has reported that Miller is still involved with the project, and the movie is not dead. There were reports that WB may recast the role as Miller’s contract might be coming to an end, and Lucas Till’s name came onto the internet for the Flash. But with this new Variety report, the fans who’ve been hoping for this project to come alive can breathe a sigh. Here’s what the website wrote:

“Miller, who plays the ultra-swift superhero The Flash, will get his DC Universe standalone film as soon as he wraps up his work on the Harry Potter spinoff series Fantastic Beasts.”

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

Variety could still be reporting this based on a piece of old news since we’ve not got an official word from WB in recent times. But still, the way Ezra Miller has always talked about this project has kept the fans motivated. Here’s what he said a while ago:

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

“Anyone who knows anything about Barry Allen knows that he’s always late. But then when he arrives, he gets stuff done. And that’s definitely how this film’s production schedule is proceeding. We’re a little late. But the reason why we are late, and this is the honest to god truth… We’re all — and I include myself in this — we are very meticulously focused on making a movie that’s not just one of the greatest superhero movies that we can possibly make. This movie’s also going to be a gift to the fans.”

The Flash Movie Ezra Miller Fantastic Beasts 3

WB is bringing us Joker, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, The Suicide Squad & Aquaman 2 next. After that, we could expect a Shazam! sequel and The Black Adam movie since it recently bagged a new director. Amidst all this, The Flash wouldn’t hurt us. Hopefully, WB sorts things out for the character and get him a movie. Rumor suggests that they’re planning a Multiverse Justice League movie in the future, and the Flash is a must for that!

The Flash May Begin Production in November, But Probably Without Ezra Miller

The Worlds of DC is growing bigger and it is all because of the immensely huge success of Aquaman. No one really thought that the film would end up making more than $1 Billion worldwide, but as soon as it came out and people went to see it, we knew that the film totally deserved what it got. It seems that WB only needed one good hit to restore the faith of the people amongst the audience, and now Shazam! will also help their case, and ultimately lead us to The Flash!

The Flash Ezra Miller

From this year on, WB is back at bringing out 2 DC movies per year with Shazam! and Joker hitting the theatres. The next year is going to bring in some girl power with Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984. 2021 is going to be dedicated to Batman-related movies with Matt Reeves’ The Batman & James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad making their way to the theatres, and Aquaman 2 has been slated for 2022. So, where does that leave The Flash?

The Flash Ezra Miller

According to The GWW, Spider-Man: Homecoming writers and Game Night filmmakers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are going to put The Flash under production by November this year, which would bring it at pace with James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. So, WB is actually looking to release it in the same year as The Batman and The Suicide Squad. Well, that is great news for the DC fans who have wanted to see Ezra Miller’s version of the fastest man alive take off on screen.

The Flash Ezra Miller

For someone who is so fast, this movie has totally been the opposite when it comes to making. It has gone through a slew of directorial changes, script changes and a lot of other problems. WB was earlier looking to bring in a Flashpoint storyline, but fortunately for us, that has been dropped and the film will focus upon the Adventures of The Flash.

The Flash Ezra Miller

But just when you thought that everything was in line, yet another problem has arrived. According to another report from THR, Ezra Miller with the assistance of legendary comic writer Grant Morrison is writing his own script for the film, and it is being said that if WB chooses to opt the script given by the Flash directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein over the Miller/Morrison one, then he could consequentially exit the role of Barry Allen itself.

The Flash Ezra Miller

Well, that is a bit of a problem. Ezra Miller recently came out and talked about the fact that people behind this film are trying to get the best version of the character out there and that is why repeated delays have happened. Here’s what he said:

The Flash Ezra Miller

“Anyone who knows anything about Barry Allen knows that he’s always late. But then when he arrives, he gets stuff done. And that’s definitely how this film’s production schedule is proceeding. We’re a little late. But the reason why we are late, and this is the honest to god truth… We’re all — and I include myself in this — we are very meticulously focused on making a movie that’s not just one of the greatest superhero movies that we can possibly make. This movie’s also going to be a gift to the fans.”

The Flash Ezra Miller

Well, we knew that there were problems behind the scenes, but Miller’s comments did not reflect the fact that those problems were because of a conflict between him and his Directors. According to the report, Miller’s script is going to be darker than the one that WB already has.

The Flash Ezra Miller

Lately, WB has been going for lighter tones as opposed to dark ones, so you could expect that Miller could actually leave the role and follow the likes of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Will Smith. Hopefully, it doesn’t come to that. There’s still time and a lot of things could happen but we do hope that the film begins production by November.

DCEU Update – Flash Actor Ezra Miller Reveals DC Is Working On A Speedster Multiverse

With the surge in DCEU’s ratings after Aquaman became one of the highest grossing movies of the superhero genre, things are actually looking up for the DC Extended universe and its parent company – Warner Bros. There were a lot of projects that had been mothballed after Joss Whedon screwed up Justice League and left the DCEU hanging by a wire at the Global Box Office. Now with Aquaman’s success, a lot of experimental projects are being breathed in a new breath of life. A Birds of Prey movie and a Joker movie are only the beginning. A new project has come to light from under the DCEU banners that have the potential to topple the box office beasts of the superhero genre. And all thanks to Ezra Miller aka Flash, we have official confirmation regarding the same. 

 

 

The Flash movie is one of the movies that was, up until recently, been cursed to stay within developmental hell. DCEU has decided to drag it out of the depths of the abyss and start from scratch. The rumored Flashpoint movie may not be happening but the Flash is sure as hell going to get his own solo feature film under Warner Bros Studios. But there have been a lot of delays in that specific project and the fans were eager to know what was making the movie’s production projects to run under such huge delays. To that Ezra Miller gave a very interesting answer. He said and we quote:

“We’re talking about sparking a whole new universe,” Miller said. “It’s not just the DC Multiverse. It’s the Speedster Multiverse.”

His words specifically were – “A speedster multiverse”.

The official twitter post confirming the news is posted below:

 

https://twitter.com/FlashsoloNews/status/1099425907914219525

 

“The Speedsters are the ones who connect the disparate pieces,” Ezra Miller continues. “Marvel is the universe; it’s one world with all of the same characters. DC is a multiverse. All these stories with different realities, different versions of characters, and the speedsters are the ones who move through it all. They’re like the connecting bridge between all these collaged parts.”

Ezra Miller Flashpoint Movie

This could mean one of two things for the scarlet speedster. It is either that Ezra Miller will be racing through the multiverse and interacting with several well-known elements within the DC Multiverse. Or that the Flashpoint storyline, the acclaimed DC Comic book arc that was supposed to be the basis for the new Flash movie, could be a possibility. But the former is more of a plausible one than the latter, the chances of which look extremely bleak.

The Flashpoint movie would not only mean that several other speedsters like Professor Zoom or the Reverse Flash could feature in the movie but also mean that the several alternate reality iterations of our favorite DC Superheroes like Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and Superman will also be making appearances in the movie. Provided the fact that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are no longer within the DCEU, roping in new faces to play the iconic duo will be bit of a stretch and a challenge for the DCEU.

Batman vs Superman Fight Sequences

The Flash first appeared in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:

It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.

Aquaman Bumblebee

The Flash’s latest appearance was in Justice League. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:

Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity, and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly-awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes in Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Primarily because we all know that the hype and popularity of this character are quite huge and also we aren’t talking about a superhero who has simple powers as we all know what Flash can do and the villains and enemies he has in his world are some of the deadliest in the world of DC.

We have seen Ezra Miller portraying the role of Flash in the DC three times but it was his role in the movie Justice League which we can count as a role with some impact and recognition in the movie.

But, now if we will talk about the solo movie project of Flash, the Flashpoint movie then there has been a lot of changes in terms of the directors and the team who is going to be a part of this project and now the latest names are of Daley and Goldstein for the direction of the movie with Chris Miller and Phil Lord already out of the movie.

In the year 2014, it was decided by the people at DC that they’re going to introduce the solo movie of Flash by the end of March in 2018 but as we all know that this couldn’t happen and despite all these things Erza Miller has finally spoken about the project and has stated that he trusts the process as big things need time and patience.

Nothing is ever certain in this world, but as certain as things get, we’re making an f****** crazy-dope Flash movie. It’s one of my great life dreams, and just the fact that we’re on the way—anyone who knows about Barry Allen knows he may arrive late, very late, but once he gets there, it’s all solved. We have to trust.

There were a lot of rumors and reports this year that the movie is going to start it’s production from the early months of 2019 and are planning to release the movie somewhere in the start of spring in 2020.

Ezra Miller Reveals Huge Supervillain He Wants In Future Justice League Movies

We are just days away from the worldwide release of DCEU’s Justice League but first reactions from notable places which hosted screenings have begun to arrive. And it’s a mixed reaction which is not good news for DCEU. After Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad not performing to the best of their potential and failing to set the cash registers ringing, the Justice League was supposed to be a massive blockbuster, a record-breaking hit which would have set the path forward for DCEU.

While the movie is yet to make an official release, the talks related to the future villains have already started taking place. Ezra Miller recently had an interview with USA Today and there he addressed the possibility of fighting one of the most interesting Justice League villains, Starro the Conqueror in the future movies. He said:

“Shout out to Starro the Conqueror and let him know we’re still coming for him, should he ever choose to invade Earth once again.”

“We’ll give him a sharp punch to the thorax.”

Starro the Conqueror may not be the most popular villain in the comics but he’s probably noteworthy. He was first introduced in Brave and the Bold #28, 1960. He belongs to a starfish-shaped alien species who tried to take control of the planet Earth but was ultimately stopped by the Justice League members including Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Martian-Manhunter and Green Lantern. But strangely, a portion of him regenerated to fight again in the future.

Although the possibility of having Starro as the future JL villain seems very unlikely as featuring such a CGI-heavy villain wouldn’t be the best choice.

Earlier Gal Gadot and Ezra Miller, while having a discussion with Postmedia Network,  revealed their personal choices for the villains that they wish to go against in the next film.

Miller said:

“We don’t really know for sure, and we’re usually the last people to find out, but … each of the heroes in this movie has specific nemeses, and I think seeing some incarnation of the Injustice League (which includes Lex Luthor, Joker, Deathstroke and more) would be something that DC fans would be pretty stoked about.”

While Gal Gadot’s wishes to see Cheetah in the next part. She said:

“There’s so many good villains in the DC universe, but I would love to fight Cheetah,” said Gadot. “She’s a girl and that could be very interesting.”

The first reactions to the movie are already out and they aren’t very favorable ones. The silver lining is Snyder and Whedon have got characters right and DCEU is improving. But the bad news is it fell way short of gigantic expectations, there is messy CGI, rushed stories, bad script, and shoddy execution. Here’s what Heroic’s Hollywood Nate Brail review said (which is one of the very positive ones):

“Justice League is the DC team up you’ve been waiting for. I had so much fun from beginning to end. The expansion of DC mythology will make fans go nuts. Superman though! Justice League does have its flaws, but the fun negated most of that for me. The cast was amazing. Favorite characters were Flash and Aquaman. The final post credits scene will make you scream!”

None of the major critics have outrightly trashed the movie but there are huge plot inconsistencies which is usual with DCEU. Here’s what German Lussier of i09 said about the movie (which is one of the most negative one):

“Justice League! It’s okay. Narratively it’s a mess, the stakes don’t work & the villain isn’t great. However, the heroes are great, it’s funny, & there’s some surprisingly effective character work. I didn’t love it, but there are enough good pieces to excite me for the future.”

Justice League is at least a good movie if not a brilliant one which we would have liked it to be. But despite the flaws, the Screenrant’s Rob Keyes called it as his favorite DCEU movie. Here’s what he said:

“The good: #JusticeLeague is my favorite DCEU movie. It will make you love its heroes and want to see them team-up again. The bad: #JusticeLeague rushes through a lot and its main story/lore and villain are rather stripped down and forgettable. The future: #JusticeLeague feels like a new start to the age of heroes and succeeds as a launch platform in that, even though some of its newer characters very much would have benefited from origin stories beforehand.”

The story of Justice League will follow the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and mark the Phase 1 of DC Cinematic Universe. The movie will assemble the greatest DC superheroes under one roof against a terrifying adversary Steppenwolf.

At the end of the Batman v Superman, the Man of Steel was dead, while Batman and Wonder Woman had begun to assemble the Justice League, an elite team of superheroes to fight a supervillain Steppenwolf who has been awakened in the wake of events.

The Steppenwolf is basically the military general of Darkseid who have sent parademons to interrogate/kidnap Batman and Earth’s scientists to retrieve Apokoliptian Motherbox which is the most powerful object in the realm.

There are two official synopsis, the first one is from the point of view of Ben Affleck’s Batman as he is responsible for putting together an elite team of superheroes to protect the planet from the ultimate destruction. This was also reflected in the first line of the old synopsis.

Here’s the synopsis of JL:

“In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of meta-humans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions”.

But in the new synopsis, the role of Wonder Woman is shown to be prime. Here’s the new official synopsis:

justice league

“Once again, Wonder Woman must demonstrate her ability as a fierce warrior. Facing a great enemy, she and Batman join forces to recruit a group of meta-humans to stand against this newly awakened threat. Having formed an unprecedented League of heroes, they set out to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

Let’s wait for November 17 to see for ourselves. Maybe we will like it. CHEERS!

Ezra Miller Reveals Huge Secret That He Kept For 5 Years  

Ezra Miller has come a long way in his career as he is part of two of the biggest franchises today. He is playing ‘The Flash’ in DC’s Justice League and he is also part of Harry Potter spin-off franchise ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’.

Ezra miller

In 2012, he came out from a closet during the press tour of ‘The Perks of Being A Wallflower’ and embraced his sexuality. He declared openly that he is gay. But in a recent interview, he said that he was warned by people not to come out as it would hurt his career. Here’s what he said:

“This is an interesting thing to talk about. I was told by a lot of people I’d made a mistake. I won’t specify. Folks in the industry, folks outside the industry. People I’ve never spoken to. They said there’s a reason so many gay, queer, gender-fluid people in Hollywood conceal their sexual identity, or their gender identity in their public image. I was told I had done a ‘silly’ thing in thwarting my own potential to be a leading man…I was given a lot of stern talking-tos.”

It’s still difficult to tell your fans that you are not straight despite the social norms on this issue changing very rapidly. But Ezra had no issues revealing it at that point in time. Here’s what he said:

“I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them.”

 

There were number of people who advised him not to come out and feel that he made a mistake. But Ezra owns it fully and is proud of it. He wants to create positive change in the society and help gay community to secure equal rights. He added:

“‘You’ve made a mistake’ is such a hard thing to hear. Maybe if I’d actually made a serious mistake? But not for this. I didn’t think I’d done anything wrong, though there have been moments of doubt as a result of those conversations. But what they said was, in fact, ‘rubbish’, as you might say. We are the ones. It’s up to us to manifest the world we want to exist in.”

Ezra is not the first to do it and won’t be the last to do it. There are so many famous celebrities who have come out as gay, whether it is Ricky Martin or Ellen Page; Ian McKellen or Matt Bomer.

Infact recently the actor Keiynan Lonsdale who plays Wally West aka Kid Flash on the CW show ‘The Flash’ came out as gay in a powerful instagram post. He wrote “I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us. He opened up about his sexuality and said that he is done apologizing for falling in love with people no matter their gender.

He said:

“I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes). I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming,” he added. “Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different..which is just untrue. A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I’ve gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting.”

He added:

“Not faking s–t anymore, not apologizing for falling in love with people no matter their gender,” he continued. “I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it’s f–king inspiring… so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we’re all one. Just love. Keiy.”

Lastly, he said:

“I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming.”

Here’re some of the twitter responses:

All of the love for you beautiful human proud is an understatement. [Alicia Banit]

BABY U DESERVE ALL THE GOD DAMN LOVE IN THE UNIVERSE [Kim]

Making me real proud to be an Aussie right now [Brett Davies]

Here’s how Keiynan replied to all these messages:

“Nothing better than happy tears. The love is beyond measurable, thank you. Don’t forget to give that same love back to yourselves x”.

The British actor Elliot Night who played Merlin on ABC’s Once Upon A Time tweeted a message to Keiynan Lonsdale “Could not be prouder of my best friend ♥.”

Well, times have indeed changed and LGBT community is more accepted today than let’s say 10-20 years ago.

Here’s Why Ezra Miller Thinks New Flash is Akin to Japanese Samurai

The upcoming DCEU movie The Flash may be facing some trouble as of now (losing its second director) but it seems to have made the right the decision of casting actor Ezra Miller in the role of The Flash. Ezar Miller has made cameos in DCEU films Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad and he will be a part of the upcoming Justice League, quite a feat for a superhero that has not been properly introduced to movie audiences as of yet.

Ezra Miller flash

The actor is nothing if not an enthusiastic fan for his role as the Scarlet Speedster. In a recent interview with Yahoo, Miller discussed his upcoming role in DCEU :

“I’m just so excited to explore him and explore that for as long as possible, even if it just means, this. Honestly, it’s an incredible gift to the world, the long history of the Flash. I feel so lucky to be a part of these great stories.”

Miller also compared the donning of The Flash costume to that of a Samurai:

“I’ll tell you that donning the Flash suit is one of the single most thrilling experiences I’ve ever known,” Miller said with a smile. “You know it’s like a samurai getting in his armor. Every day, I just felt like, so cool. It’s the greatest. I really love playing the Flash. I love Barry Allen. I really, I’ve come to, yeah, I’ve come to really hold a special place in my heart for this neurotic but altruistic individual.”

Miller also discussed the benefits of having Geoff Johns on the sets of Justice League helped him to get a deeper knowledge of his character:

 “Yes, he’s a good guy to have around.He keeps us full of information and he keeps us from making ignorant mistakes that would upset the fans across the world because you pretty much can’t get someone with a deeper knowledge of this universe than Geoff Johns.”

The Flash Movie Villains May Have Been Revealed

DCEU has been slowly teasing fans with its movie version of The Flash as he makes short cameos in two of its movies this year-Batman Vs Superman and the Suicide Squad. The studio finally decided the titular hero deserved more screen time by having him star in the upcoming Justice League movie. In Suicide Squad, the Fastest Man Alive brought to justice Captain Boomerang which may have been a clue of sorts as to where the standalone Flash movie is heading, in terms of villains anyway.

According to Heroic Hollywood, the villains for the movie will be The Rogues:

“Not much is known about The Flash’s first featured film, but our EIC Umberto Gonzalez has just revealed via Periscope that the villains of The Flash will be The Rogues. The Rogues are a team of Flash villains that join together to try to stop the Fastest Man Alive. In the comics, the team is currently led by Captain Cold and includes Mirror Master, Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster, Pied Piper, the Top, and Captain Boomerang.”

NEGLkkpWFPPCKO_2_b

CW’s The Flash fans may be aware of  Captain Rogue and Heat Wave already making an appearance in the series with Mirror Master to make a debut in the third season. If this rumor is true, then there will be a bit of complication for the television side of the DC universe. The series Arrow also had to kill off Deathstroke and Amanda Waller from being series regulars due to the characters being featured in the Suicide Squad.

The Flash will be helmed by Rick Famuyiwa and star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons, and Ray Fisher. Production is expected to begin this year, off a script written by The Flash’s original director Seth Grahame-Smith, who left the project over “creative differences”. It’s set to hit theaters March 16, 2018.

Ezra Miller Speaks About His Version Of The Flash And Suicide Squad

Ezra Miller who is playing The Flash in the Zack Synder’s upcoming Justice League movie spoke to Entertainment Weekly in December of last year about how his portrayal will differ from Grant Gustin’s on The CW’s The Flash and other previous versions of the character. On his character for the big screen version, Miller says:

“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’s initial casting had a few naysayers as Grant Gustin’s portrayal was so loved by fans.Amongst them CW’s Arrow Stephen Amell who  lobbied for Gustin to be cast in the movie version. But with the cameo in The Suicide Squad, fans have started to warm up and become more supportive of Miller.

landscape-1469528374-the-flash-in-the-justice-league-trailer

Miller has also commented on MTV on how the Justice League cast feels a solidarity with cast members of The Suicide Squad:

You needn’t look any further than the Suicide Squad director and cast response to the negative reviews to feel how negative critiques motivate us. Ultimately, we can’t base anything on [the critical response]. As artists, we aim to please absolutely everybody with our work, but we also know that we have to keep expressing ourselves as best as we can express ourselves.

Miller has been known to play quirky characters in past movies such as The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, We Need To Talk About Kevin and Train Wreck. So it will be interesting to see what he does with the character. He will also star in the much anticipated Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, where he plays the mysterious son of an anti-wizard crusader.
