NEW Behind-The-Scenes Look of THE FLASH Reveals The Movie Magic of How Ezra Miller Played Multiple Characters

Say what you want about DC's The Flash - also now known as one of the biggest financial flops in CBM history, but Ezra Miller - despite his very polarizing history, did a pretty good job of working off both his Barry Allen's when playing the opposing character in a majority of the film's scenes.

Yes, Young Barry Allen is undoubtedly one of the most irritating character's in a superhero film, but the work Miller did in making current-day and Young Barry Allen's interactions feel natural, was work not many actor's could make look believable.

A new behind-the-scenes featurette reveals how Miller and the crew made this acting-accolade work with the use of computer generated effects, and volumetric suit-capturing from the bodies of his stunt doubles.

Seeing Miller and the crew have to play and craft three different character's seemed like an extensive feat for the entire company to head, but for what the end result turned out to be, they did an alright job.

Did you find it interesting how the studio brought to life three different versions of Barry Allen in The Flash?

Worlds collide when the Flash uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change the events of the past. However, when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, he becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation. With no other superheroes to turn to, the Flash looks to coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian -- albeit not the one he's looking for.

The Flash is a 2023 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Produced by DC Studios, Double Dream, and The Disco Factory, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is the 13th installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The film was directed by Andy Muschietti from a screenplay by Christina Hodson, based on a story by Joby Harold and the writing team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

It stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / The Flash alongside Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdú, Kiersey Clemons, Antje Traue, and Michael Keaton. In the film, Barry travels back in time to prevent his mother's death, which brings unintended consequences.

@DrReedRichards - I love The Sopranos. I think I'll rewatch it again tonight.
grif - 9/18/2023, 6:15 PM
@CoHost - this episode in season 3 or 4?
DrReedRichards - 9/18/2023, 6:37 PM
@CoHost -

I hate mob idolization flicks.

Fitting gif though.
CoHost - 9/18/2023, 6:44 PM
@grif - Season 2. Episode 9.

I can't think of a single reason to revisit this movie. It was like watching The Parent Trap but with superheroes.
MUTO123 - 9/18/2023, 5:41 PM
@prettynucIear - Man, don't insult The Parent Trap like that
CaptainSavaHoe2 - 9/18/2023, 5:59 PM
@prettynucIear - For Micheal Keaton. The only reason

Although this wasn't a great movie, I will say the Barrys interacting with each other was quite seamless. There wasn't any of that 'staring into space' effect that can happen. Over all it was quite well done.

"The Movie Magic of How Ezra Miller Played Multiple Characters"

It's call CGI.

His [frick]ing cringe laugh in that movie still haunts me.

It’s strange that Muschietti and WB went to great lengths, and expense, to digitally replace Ezra’s stand-in so Ezra could also play 18 year old Barry… but when you watch the movie “18 year old” Barry looks at least 30. I think the crew knew Ezra couldn’t pass for 18, even with a bushy wig, so they said “Be super obnoxious! Kids are obnoxious!”

Why couldn’t they cast an actual 18-ish year old actor, who roughly resembles Ezra, and have him play young Barry? It would’ve saved them a bunch of money, we would’ve been spared some rough-looking CG head replacements, and the movie would have had 50% less Ezra Miller.

Never forget ladies and gents,

And to those mighty defenders of the movie, I know it's reversed. Doesn't make it any less cringed.

Young Barry was annoyingly hilarious. Say what you want about Ezra, but I think he did a great job in the movie. He felt like two separate characters.

@micvalpro - One of them was unbearably annoying and the other one was even worse.
TheLight - 9/18/2023, 10:38 PM
@micvalpro - Doesn't change the facts that one was like pulling hair and the other was like pulling teeth. I'll let you decide who is who.

@GhostDog - Might be watching it later so I'd like to share my thoughts afterwards.

I've legitimately not heard praise about the younger performance yet; quite the opposite, truth be told. The CGI that created the dual performances has been brought up not much at all (widely) in comparison to folks not liking the younger version of Barry.

Guessing a flash movie is out of the question for a while

Reboot him in a miniseries like they are doing Green Lantern

If both do well enough, do a Green Lantern/ Flash The Brave and The Bold type movie

This movie was the biggest waste of time.

We truly live in the worst DC Movie timeline.
Blue Beetle was great though.

He started calling himself "they" and suddenly, a second Mad Menace spawned

Funnily enough, Ezra also plays multiple characters in that void he calls his head.

The Life and Career of DC’s First Latino Superhero Xolo Maridueña

I feel like this article is not totally accurate. Sasha Calle is Latino and technically so is Lynda Carter.

Young Barry was a second Ezra Miller too many, but I think this was pretty impressive. Both the way Miller made the Barry's play off on each other and from a technological/directing viewpoint
