“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” actor and fashion provocateur Ezra Miller promises his standalone “Flash” movie will be ” f–king crazy-dope.”
“Nothing is ever certain in this world, but as certain as things get, we’re making a f–king crazy-dope ‘Flash’ movie,” Miller said in a new interview with Playboy posted Thursday.
Created in 1956, DC Comics’ “The Flash,” whose secret identity is Barry Allen, is a hero with the power of super speed that allows him incredible abilities, including time travel. The character was a part of Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” and debuted in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
Miller is thrilled about starring in the standalone movie, calling it “one of my greatest life dreams.”
“Anyone who knows about Barry Allen knows he may arrive late, very late, but once he gets there, it’s all solved. We have to trust,” Miller said. And those rumors about Henry Cavill being done with the “Superman” franchise and Ben Affleck opting out of returning as Batman? Miller said, basically, don’t believe everything you hear.
“When there are these leaks of information — or however people get stuff,” Miller told Playboy, “it’s pretty unreliable.”
Filming on Warner Bros.’ DC Comics superhero movie “The Flash” has been pushed back to late 2019 to allow the filmmakers more time to work on the screenplay, an individual with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap.
The film never received a green light nor scheduled a release date, but was expected to start production in March of next year, however, Ezra Miller is scheduled to begin work on the third installment of the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise in July. The film is now eyeing release in 2021.
