18 November 2016The Flash

Ezra has recently talked to IGN about THE FLASH, which is currently set for an early 2018 release. He says that, despite being one of the leading characters on the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE, Barry Allen won’t be completely used to his powers on his solo film.

Speaking to IGN, Miller explained that while Allen will have learned more about harnessing the Speed Force in his team-up with Batman, Superman and co., he will still be an in-training superhero to some extent:

“I certainly think it will represent the next stage,” he explained. “What I find fascinating is that we’re still very much amateur-hour Speedster.” That’s a journey Miller’s clearly keen to continue in any potential future movies: “I’d love for the series to track an evolution of Barry Allen’s early times as The Flash.”

When asked if we could see a fully-powered Flash in DC’s movie universe one day, Miller explained why that was unlikely: “Like, I love this comic ‘Kingdom Come’ – unbelievable art – and in that The Flash is fully evolved, and you never even see him, right? It’s just like a red mist, and there’s no crime in [Keystone] City. He protects a whole chunk of the country. So that wouldn’t make for the most interesting film – you know what I mean? What do we have to learn about that guy? That guy barely exists, right? He’s almost one with the Speed Force. So it’s interesting to go to the beginning.”

Then – as if just to get us wishing for the impossible – he followed it up with an idea for a fully-powered Flash move as fantastic as it is unlikely: “It would be hard – you’d have to get Werner Herzog to make a movie about a bolt of lightning!”
