THE FLASH Movie Update From Ezra Miller Potentially Confirms Introduction Of The Speedster Multiverse
Ezra Miller has revealed new details regarding the solo Flash film, confirming the movie is still in the works, while also touching on a potential speedster multiverse that will serve to expand the DCEU.
With production on Fantastic Beasts 3 being delayed, fans are concerned about the status of the upcoming The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller, and whether it will be happening at all. Fortunately, an interview with Miller has surfaced with some reassuring words for fans, as the actor confirms that the project will still be moving forward very soon.
“It's getting really good now. Anyone that knows anything about Barry Allen knows that he's always late but then when he arrives, he gets stuff done. And that's definitely how this film's production schedule is proceeding. We are a little late, but the reason why we are late, and this is the honest to God's truth the reason we are late, is because we are all, and I include myself in this, we are very meticulously focused on making a movie that is just not one of the greatest superhero movies that we can possibly make, this movie is also going to be a gift to the fans. This movie is going to be a real pure offering to the fans of this material.”
Miller is optimistic about the future of the project, stating that they want to put in enough time and effort into making the film as good as can it can be, and not rush its development. It’s clear that it is still a ways from heading into production, however, as initial details are being sorted out by DC. He also confirmed some potentially huge news about the status of the DCEU; namely, that it will be part of a larger DC Multiverse and The Flash will introduce the Speedster multiverse.
“We are talking about sparking a whole new universe, which is not just the DC multiverse, it's also, it's the Speedster multiverse. And the Speedsters are the ones who connect all of the disparate pieces. Because Marvel is a universe, just one world and all the same characters in it. DC is a multiverse. All these different stories with different realities, characters, and versions of characters, and the Speedsters are the ones who move through it all. They are like the connecting bridge between all these difference collaged parts.”
If the comments above are any indication, this may finally shed some light on the future direction of the larger DC Cinematic Universe and why they are planning and producing such a wide variety of films, from this year’s The Joker to a potential New Gods spin-off. Maybe, the future of this cinematic universe is in embracing its outlandish and zany source material.
The Flash is set to be directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The release date is currently unknown.
