It's been planned for YEARS
Longer than a decade! From Wiki:
In December 2004, David S. Goyer was attached to write and direct a superhero film based on the The Flash with Charles Roven producing. Goyer expressed interest in having actor Ian Somerhalder portray Wally West, with Ian expressing his own interest in the role. In June 2005, Goyer was still developing the first script draft for The Flash and had yet to finalize negotiations with Somerhalder. In February 2007, Goyer departed from the project, citing creative differences with the studio.
Of course, talk about The Flash film escalated from there. Then The Flash was planned to be a film that took place in the Green Lantern universe. We all know how that ended.
Grant Gustin now plays Barry Allen/[The Flash](series:1068303) in his own CW show, which is pretty good.
Now, he'll appear in the DC Cinematic Universe! The Hollywood Reporter just spoke with him:
"Zack Snyder told me on the phone that he wanted me to play the Flash while I was eating a tilapia in a small Central American village. That was definitely a moment that prompted me to question the fabric of my reality."
What doors does this reveal open up? That it's even more likely that THE FLASH WILL SHOW UP IN BATMAN V SUPERMAN! That Snyder believes in him, just as he believed/s in Cavill, Affleck, Gadot, Momoa, Fisher, ect.
Ezra Miller is definitely one of a kind and his casting announcement hasn't been taken too lightly. In time, he deserves to be praised. He will impress. He is full of energy. He is a great actor.
Why must you criticize him for his looks? What does his sexual orientation have to do with any of this? Ezra is who he is, but when he appears in Batman v Superman, Justice League, and The Flash, he will not be himself. He will be The Flash.
The DC Cinematic Universe NEEDS him. Otherwise, it will be a sad and dark world. Ezra Miller's Flash will give us much-needed laughs.
You may all have your own opinions on Miller, but the best thing you can do is suspend judgement.
Spread that hashtag on your social media accounts if you believe in Ezra Miller. If it trends, I'll be unbelievably happy.
