The Flash: Ezra Miller Says He And Grant Gustin Could Race


If you haven’t seen Ezra Miller’s interview with MTV about The Flash, you owe it to yourself to watch it now (and we’ve embedded it below). His enthusiasm for his role as the Barry Allen of the movies is infectious, and should immediately make you feel better about the 22-year old actor if you’ve been having any doubts. I particularly enjoyed the way Miller said he is “going in as hard as possible” on Flash comics to prepare.

Of course there’s already someone running around as Barry Allen on TV: Grant Gustin, star of The CW series The Flash. While some fans have been annoyed that there are going to be two separate versions of the same super hero, Miller doesn’t seem to think it’s a big deal at all.

"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."

We’re assuming that Miller is simply saying that the two Allens can co-exist with no problem, and not that we’re going to actually see them race. Although that would, in fact, be dope. And the TV show has already opened the can of worms that is alternate worlds, so …

Sorry, just started daydreaming about actually seeing that happen. We should be getting our first brief glimpse as Miller portraying the Fastest Man Alive in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year, with much more to come in both Justice League Part One (2017) and The Flash (2018).
