Some folks like the fact that DC is keeping their TV universe and their cinematic ones separate. Others like Stephen Amell aren't as thrilled telling the Wall St. Journal when they asked him if he would play Oliver Queen on the big screen
“Yeah. Of course. And I feel like it should be Grant doing the movie.”
I can't blame him seeing as how [Arrow](series:720988) is one of the best Super hero shows on TV and at least partly responsible for [The Flash](series:1068303) being the highest rated premiere of a Super hero show ever. He did go on to say though-
“But the important thing to remember is just because Grant Gustin plays the part of Barry Allen doesn’t mean Ezra Miller can’t also play Barry Allen. There can be different interpretations of the character. Anyone who is a fan of the comics knows the Flash character is one of the forces that leads to parallel universes. And who knows, they might find a fantastic actor to play Oliver Queen on the feature side who has a different take on the character. I’m certainly a departure from the typical Oliver Queen from the comic books. I just think that everybody needs to be patient with the whole thing. The fact that DC and Warner have announced all these comic book features is nothing but good for business.”

Ezra Miller seems to be real happy about it though!
“I’m going to say I feel really happy about it in one way because the idea of actually having a steady job in my life is actually incredibly comforting. It’s something I didn’t necessarily think I would ever have. And then of course, there are the moments when responsibility-dodging, adolescent-me is like, ‘No, I don’t want to’ [laughs]. [But] that’s a very small part. At this point, it’s a diminishing voice. Every time I think about that reality, it makes me extremely happy. I’m really stoked and I would do it for forty years. That contract could have said anything.”
Before his own solo movie though he is supposedly going to be making appearances in the upcoming [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) and Justice League (pt. 1) movies.
I was at first a little apprehensive about the Flash TV series but I'm now a regular viewer and like the show as much as I like Arrow. Would I find two different Barry Allens Confusing? I don't think so, mostly because Zack Snyder's movies usually have a different look and feel than the TV shows. Also this is three years from now (2018) Although The TV Flash has very strong ratings now this might change by then, and there could possibly be no TV Flash by the time this movie is ready to be released. Or possibly the Superhero movie genre will become so over-saturated with 20 other movies being released before "The Flash", that the studios may just stop making them by then.(God Forbid!) Either way I don't think it will matter but what do you think?
