Ezra Miller Apologizes For ‘Justice League’ Lacking Iconic Flash Element

Flash actor Ezra Miller apologizes for the upcoming 'Justice League' missing an iconic element integral to Barry Allen in the comics.

No one is more excited than Flash actor Ezra Miller for the Scarlet Speedster to make his true DC Extended Universe debut – after a cameo in both Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad – this November in Justice League. Miller has been vocal about his love for the character of Barry Allen and all the elements that come along with portraying such an iconic character.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ezra Miller confirmed one iconic Flash element that audiences won’t see when Justice League hits theaters. The actor began to discuss Flash lore, which led to the topic of the Barry Allen and how he acquired has costume via a ring in the past, something the veteran actor was disappointed to announce wouldn’t be involved in the film:

“I can confirm, spoiler alert, his suit does not pop out of his ring [in the movie]. Things have to progress, you know? Original Barry Allen was clearly an incredibly, incredibly clever scientist. We acknowledge and respect that. We want to apologize to the fans who are mad about the ring thing.”

Famously in the comics, Barry Allen designed a spring-loaded ring that would allow his costume to shoot out quickly for a quick change. Fans have been clamoring for the use of the ring for years, first with The Flash TV show and now with Ezra Miller’s portrayal.

Here’s the official synopsis for the Justice League movie:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
