Though we haven’t seen much of him, Ezra Miller’s take on the Scarlet Speedster already seems to be a hit with fans. We caught glimpses of the character in both Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad, as well as the Justice League trailer, and now, we’re all ready to see him make a big impact in The Flash.
Speaking to MTV in a recent interview, Miller discussed how him and director Rick Famuyiwa plan to bring some levity to the DCEU by making an extremely fun film.
“I think there’s just an intention to make something extremely fun and something superhuman and something deeply human,” said Miller. “It’s the thing we’re all trying to do, but I think Rick’s mind and his heart are in an excellent place, and his expertise as a filmmaker, as evidenced by Dope, all come together as very exciting factors to me. It’s hard when talking about Rick to not use the word dope too many times. It’s the Brooklyn in me; dope is a big part of my vernacular.”
Further in the interview, the actor spoke about working with Kiersey Clemons, who plays love interest Iris West.
“Kiersey is amazing. I had the opportunity to read with her and do some explorative acting in our chemistry read … the results of these experiments clearly were positive. I’m just deeply excited about what these people carry in their hearts, and I’m excited about the radical intention that everybody seems to be bringing to the genesis chamber of this film.”
Finally, Miller also touched on Grant Gustin, who plays The Flash on The CW’s extremely successful TV series.
“He’s [Grant Gustin] a boss,” said Miller. “I can’t wait to see him, eye to eye, adrift in the Speed Force — our eyes will lock and, in that moment, we will both know the truth. What truth? I dare not say.”
The Flash speeds into theatres on March 16th, 2018.
