Just one small part of Warner Bros.' massive announcement today that laid out their DC Comics movie slate was the news that Ezra Miller will play Barry Allen in The Flash, debuting in 2018. The actor will likely have a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where the entire Justice League team will presumably be revealed for the first time.
The Flash doesn't have a writer or director attached at this time, but it will occupy one of two 2018 release dates (March 23, 2018 or July 27, 2018) that Warner Bros. set in August, with Jason Momoa's Aquaman movie taking the other slot. Ironically, the news comes just one week after The Flash TV series debuted on The CW, starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, but the show will have no connection to this burgeoning movie universe.
Ezra Miller is best known for his performances in indie films such as City Island, Every Day, Beware the Gonzo, Another Happy Day, We Need to Talk About Kevin and his breakthrough role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. He most recently starred in Madame Bovary.
