Now, the idea that Grant Gustin's eponymous hero from the CW's The Flash could someday cross over with Ezra Miller's soon-to-arrive movie version of the hero isn't a new one - it's been a distinct possibility for at least as long as the TV series has been playing with time travel and alternate realities.
That being said, though, it now looks a whole lot more likely that we could, in the near future, actually see the two versions of the same hero meet on screen. The reason?
Ezra Miller Totally Just Said He and Grant Gustin WILL Meet on Screen
That's right - though Miller is expected to play a variation on the same version of The Flash as Grant Gustin, the classic hero Barry Allen, he doesn't see that as being all that much of a problem when it comes to the two meeting on screen.
As he put it to MTV (when asked whether he was avoiding the TV show as part of his preparations to play the character on the big screen), Miller had this to say:
"I'm not avoiding it...I'm not avoiding it at all. I think it's awesome! And come on -- we're The Flash. It's parallel universes. Grant Gustin is The Flash, and I'm The Flash, don't you see? It's the event horizon, we crossed it, baby. Grant and I are chillin'. We're going to have a race. It's gonna be dope. Like Jay Garrick and Barry Allen back in the day."
Or, in other words:
If Ezra Miller Has Any Say in it, We WILL See the Two Flashes Meet on Screen
Now, of course, in the long run that has a whole lot more to do with what DC and Warner Bros. have planned, but since there's a pretty solid argument that they're aiming for more-or-less exactly that to be able to happen, it's just possible that Miller might actually know something we don't...
An epic, medium-hopping Multiverse adventure, anyone?
What do you reckon, though?
