'Justice League's Ezra Miller Reveals What Villain He Wants The Flash to Fight



The plot of Warner Bros.' upcoming The Flash movie might be a bit of a mystery, but it sounds like there's one storyline that the film's star wouldn't mind bringing to life.

Ezra Miller, who portrayed Barry Allen/The Flash in Suicide Squad and Justice League, was recently asked which villain he'd like his character go toe-to-toe with. While Miller hinted that there are quite a lot of options to choose from, he has one he is fond of in some way.


"There's a lot that just come from the world of The Flash, and various Rogues." Miller revealed during a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia. "It's hard to choose a favorite. Savitar. I really love those plotlines."




Considering the colorful history that Savitar has had over the years, there'd certainly be plenty of storytelling possibilities. In the comics, Savitar was a Cold War-era pilot, who became the "God of Speed" after being struck by lightning. Savitar then became unbelievably powerful, and went on to attempt to kill more speedsters, only to eventually be disintegrated to death by Barry Allen.
And of course, there was the somewhat-loose adaptation of Savitar in the third season of The Flash television show, which reimagined the character a maniacal future incarnation of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).
Weirdly enough, this isn't the first time that Miller's incarnation of The Flash has been at least somewhat connected to Savitar, with one fan creating a pretty awesome piece of fanart of him in the role.


At the moment, it's a pretty big mystery which villain The Flash could face off in his movie, considering the almost-concurrent reports about what the film could look like. Last year, the film began to be dubbed Flashpoint, leading plenty to assume that it would pit Barry against Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash. But in recent months, rumors have suggested that the film could be back to being The Flash, and possibly involve some beloved Rogues in the process.
Essentially, time will only tell what The Flash ends up looking like. But either way, it sounds like the film's newly-minted directors are excited to bring it to life.
"Just the fact that the character is unique from other superheroes in that he doesn't completely have his shit together like Superman does," co-director John Francis Daley explained earlier this year. "It's more of a ground-level superhero."


"It's a relatable way in to a superhero movie in some of the same ways that Peter Parker was for the Marvel side of things," co-director Jonathan Goldstein added.

Possible Leaked Details For THE FLASH Reveal New Intel On The Tone, Villains, And Casting

It's been a while since we've heard anything solid about The Flash but an apparent leak sheds some light on the tone, possible casting additions, and which characters the Scarlet Speedster will battle.




As of right now, the status of the DC Films Universe is very much unclear. While Aquaman, Shazam, and Wonder Woman 2 are all on the way, Warner Bros.' slate beyond that remains a mystery, as do plans for movies like The Batman, Birds of Prey, and The Flash. In regards to the latter, though, some new details have popped up on Reddit this week which definitely make for very interesting reading indeed.

It goes without saying that you should take these with a pinch of salt but this thread detailing all the times the "DCEU Leaks" board has provided accurate intel definitely means we should give them the benefit of the doubt and there's a lot here for fans of the Scarlet Speedster to sink their teeth into.

From The Flash's tone to possible casting ideas for characters like Jay Garrick and Captain Cold, we think you'll enjoy taking a look at this fresh intel, especially as the movie's status has been up in the air for a while now (it was supposed to be released this March originally, remember). So, to take a look at these details and decide whether or not you think they're legit, click on the "View List" button below.

A Comedic Approach With A Simple Story



Something which arguably hurt Zack Snyder's DC Comics adaptations is the fact that the likes of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were very long and somewhat hard to follow for regular moviegoers. As a result, it's no wonder Warner Bros. felt the need to simplify Justice League and that's reportedly what they have in mind for The Flash; a story with "lower stakes" than the films above.

With that in mind, don't expect time travel, alternate realities, or an end of the world level threat because John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein's newest draft is reportedly "very comedic" and a straightforward affair which may point to a simpler (blander?) DC Films Universe moving forward.


The Villains



Ideally, The Flash would feature an epic battle between the Fastest Man Alive and his arch-nemesis the Reverse-Flash but the first season of the TV show did that pretty much perfectly so it's not really a surprise to learn that this movie may be heading in a slightly different direction than expected.

Apparently, The Rogues - who have never really assembled on the small screen - will be the big bads of this adventure and the roster is made up of Captain Cold, Mirror Master, and Weather Wizard. That's not a particularly big roster but it is one which would work in a two-hour movie and their very different skill sets ensure that the Scarlet Speedster will have his hands full when he goes to war with them.

Jay Garrick



As fun as it's been to see Jay Garrick in The CW's The Flash, the character has been somewhat diluted by the fact he's the doppelganger of Barry Allen's father and was originally being impersonated by Zoom. In this movie, it's said that the character will actually be taking on a "mentor role" to the titular hero but there's no word on whether or not he'll end up being a speedster when we meet him here.

My guess would be no because that would be hard to explain and while some fans will no doubt be disappointed seeing him given a generic part in this movie, it could lead to big things down the line.


Iris West And Henry Allen



Kiersey Clemons recently revealed that she will return as Iris West in The Flash after being cut from Justice League and this apparent leak confirms that there are big plans for her in the DC Comics movie.

As was previously reported, Billy Crudup will indeed show up as Henry Allen, a character we were first introduced to in the aforementioned superhero ensemble. He'll presumably remain in prison, though.

Casting The Movie



It's obviously still very early days for The Flash so the casting process has yet to begin. However, this leaker claims that Warner Bros. is hoping to find an A-Lister along the lines of Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise for Jay Garrick. That doesn't necessarily mean those are the actors the studio is actively looking to enter talks with but it gives us an idea of the type of talent we could see as Barry Allen's mentor.

Apparently, Daley and Goldstein are hoping to find actors with "dramatic and comedic chops" for the Rogues so don't get your hopes up about that group necessarily being the most serious villains ever.

Channing Tatum As Captain Cold?



Well, this is...interesting? Apparently, Gambit and 22 Jump Street star Channing Tatum is currently on Warner Bros.' radar to take on the role of Captain Cold. This reportedly stems from the days when Phil Lord and Chris Miller were involved which means this possible casting tidbit makes perfect sense.

There's nothing to say it will happen, of course, and there have been no formal talks with the actor. It's also been quite some time since those two had anything to do with the project so who knows who the current directors envision in that role. Either way, it's pretty hard to imagine a better fit than Tatum!

A Possible Release Date



Take this with a pinch of salt but Warner Bros. is said to be eyeing a 2020 release date for The Flash (it certainly wouldn't be next year at this stage) and that it could follow the example of Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2 by debuting on November or December. That's a hard time of the year to crack but if the studio chooses widely, the Scarlet Speedster could race straight to the top of the box office.

A Much Lighter Take On The Flash



While that new label is going to embrace darker stories, the rest of the DC movies will be moving away from that. The Flash, which the trades notes is set to begin production early next year, has reportedly abandoned the "somber themes" it was originally going to tackle. Now, with John Francis Daly and Jonathan Goldstein on board, the project is said to be using Back to the Future as a touchstone.

Whether or not that means time travel will still be involved obviously remains to be seen for now.
