4. Ezra Miller as The Flash
Factoring out the series of controversies connected to the star behind the character, there is no denying that Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen/The Flash has brought much-needed humor to the otherwise darker tone of the DC film franchise. This success can be attributed to the way the character is written and presented in the films.
Barry Allen is depicted as a socially awkward and slightly clumsy character who is still learning to control his powers. This vulnerability makes him relatable and endearing to audiences, and his humorous quips and one-liners add a lightness to the overall tone of the films — one that is very much needed to balance out the often darker tones of the SnyderVerse films.
The character’s humor doesn’t detract from the action and drama of the films but instead enhances them by providing moments of levity and emotional relief. And it’s not just The Flash’s jokes and one-liners. His physical comedy, such as his exaggerated facial expressions and movements, adds an extra layer of humor to the character and make him stand out from other superheroes.
