For the millions of fanboys and fangirls that were holding out hope that somehow Grant Gustin would become The Flash for the DC Cinematic Universe it’s over. Because as of today Ezra Miller has been cast in the role.
I’m not going to lie this news bummed me out. For one the television iteration is only two episodes old and, like Arrow, it has me jazzed to tune in. But it’s time to move on I guess. Unless of course if they say that all the stuff happening out of theaters occurs on Earth 2, which could lead toward an interesting place where Infinity Crisis could become a thing. Though I realize that’s stretching it.
And if our dedicated readers clicked the article and thought ‘hey they could have him play Wally West to lessen the confusion between TV and Movie viewers.’ Nope. According to The Hollywoord Reporter the story for the now coming together flick will center on Barry Allen, the same Fastest Man Alive that’s featured weekly on the small screen.
With Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice on schedule for it’s 2016 release I think it’s safe to assume that in that story we’ll meet Barry, though the question remains if this will be before he got the Speed Force or after. We’ll have to wait to find out.
But what do our readers think about all this? Are you bummed out to see the TV and Movie DC cementing their separation? Do you think Ezra Miller will be a decent fit for Barry Allen?
