“The Flash” movie in DC Extended Universe is going to come under intense scrutiny, part of that reason is the CW’s TV show “The Flash”. With Grant Gustin’s “The Flash” continuing to be a critical and fan favourite, comparisons are bound to occur.
Ezra Miller stars as the Barry Allen in the DCEU “The Flash” , with Seth Grahame-Smith writing and directing. Entertainment Weekly recently spoke to Miller who revealed that his approach to the role will give us a more flawed Barry Allen, than the whiter than white interpretation from Grant Gustin in the TV series:
“Well, [first] it’s going to be a movie. I’d like for it to be an exploration of a human being, a multi-dimensional human being, to speak. Wow, I just made such a pun, without meaning to! I’d like the character to have many dimensions.
But really, I’d like him to have the usual dimensions we know and love, and then some extra ones that are part of the amazing consideration of this superhero. I hope to realize him as a person, and I think what’s most exciting for me in superhero mythologies is when we feel the humanity of someone who is heroic – or the heroism of someone who is a flawed, deeply human person.”
