With Grant Gustin currently appearing on our screens each week as The Flash, you would think that Ezra Miller may be worried about portraying the character, but it sounds like he’s not losing any sleep over it.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, The Perks of Being a Wallflower actor revealed that the two iterations will be very different, explaining:
“Well, it’s going to be a movie,” he said. “I’d like for it to be an exploration of a human being, a multi-dimensional human being.”
He went on to say, before joking that it wasn’t intended as a reference to The Flash’s universe hopping adventures:
“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.”
It sounds like he certainly knows what he wants to do with the character, although it would be interesting to know if he has watched the CW show at any point.
What do you think? Do you think Ezra will be the better Barry Allen? Would you have preferred them to keep one Flash for both mediums? Let us know below!
