See ‘The Boys’ Star Antony Starr As Reverse-Flash For Ezra Miller’s ‘The Flash’

From an evil Superman to an evil Flash!

The Boys Homelander Ezra Miller The Flash Antony Starr

A new concept design sees The Boys‘ Homelander actor Antony Starr join the DC Universe as the Reverse-Flash for Ezra Miller’s The Flash.

Antony Starr is known for his role as Homelander, The Boys‘ twisted sociopathic version of Superman. This new concept design envisions the actor taking on another twisted version of a Justice League hero as he suits up as DC’s Eobard Thawne for the DCEU.

While The Flash has faced controvery lately in the wake of recent allegations against star Ezra Miller, the DC film looks to be on track for release at Warner Bros. Discovery and Antony Starr could be a perfect choice for the role of the Reverse-Flash.

From Homelander To Eobard Thawne

A new image shared on Instagram by artist “sub.ozil” shows Antony Starr suited up in the Reverse-Flash’s iconic yellow rendition of the Flash’s suit.

Check out the concept design below:

While there is no word yet on whether the Reverse-Flash is set to appear opposite Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen in The Flash, as the character’s greatest enemy it would make sense for him to show up. And as this concept design demonstrates, Antony Starr could be a perfect fit for the role.

In DC’s comics, Eobard Thawne comes from the future and becomes the Reverse-Flash after finding the Flash’s old costume. Thawne manages to recreate the freak accident that gave Barry Allen his powers, granting him his own speed abilities.

The Reverse-Flash has previously appeared in live action in The CW series The Flash, opposite Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen. In the series, Eobard Thawne was played by Matt Letscher and, after taking on the appearance of Dr. Harrison Wells, Tom Cavanagh. Whether the character will make it into the DCEU is yet to be seen, but Antony Starr would be a strong contender to play the villain.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso, and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.

The Flash is currently set for release on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Ezra Miller film, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
