Ezra Miller Bulked Up To Play Flash

Ezra Miller

Ezra Miller will be playing Flash in the upcoming Justice League Part 1 and 2 and it appears that the young actor has been hitting the gym in order to be prepared physically to take on the role.

In recent pictures posted on Instagram, Miller looks very different, adding muscle and weight.  He attended the Batman v Superman premiere, wearing a red leather jacket and black dress pants, and looked the part of a DC superhero.

Intense workouts often go hand in hand for these major comic book movie roles, Chris Pratt completely transformed his body for Guardians of the Galaxy and Gal Gadot hit the gym in order to take on the iconic character of Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman and the upcoming Justice League films.

The DC comic book movie universe has officially kicked off with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is now playing in theaters and The Flash is set for release March 16, 2018.

    I feel bad for Ezra Miller. Not only is he competing with a current Flash this universally beloved, he also has to come off of the stench that is Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice. Not to mention his Flash movie is coming from the brilliant mind of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, and RJ Berger. Poor guy doesn’t stand a chance

      :(

      Only a handful of fantards actually think Miller is in competition with Gustin.

      • razorstar90

        They are playing the same character with the same origin story at the same time. They may not directly be competing but there will definitely be comparisons. Now if CW’s Flash was met with a “,meh” reaction like say Tom Welling’s Smallville you’d be right. But the Flash is hit with critics and fans. Ezra’s Flash not so much. He has a lot to go up against and he’s going to have zero goodwill. He’s going to have to win over fans who are already looking at him side ways. And again being affliated with Zack Snyder’s Justice League wont help

        • Chris W

          WB doesn’t care about the fantards of a CW show who will bemoan the Miller casting. They’re less than .1% of the box office.

          Get some perspective man. You’re living in a comic book blog bubble.

          Do you really think people care? If he’s good, it will sell. period. As far as BVS is concerned, it’s the fans, not the critics, that have the final say. I saw the film and enjoyed it immensely! Seeing it again in a few days.

            Can’t wait to watch again in IMAX!

          LOL You’re sort of pathetic.

    • Maximillian Pegasus

      Yes, but The Lego Movie guys wrote the script.

      • Math

        Are they still implicated in this? They had a lot of projects on their plate and I thought they dropped a lot of them when they got hired for the Han Solo movie.

        • Maximillian Pegasus

          Kinda, they only wrote the script, they’re not gonna direct it.

    Interesting. Miller’s Flash looks like it will be different enough from Gustin’s that we’ll be able to fully enjoy both. With “Batman v Superman” off to a record breaking start, Miller is already off and running. Looking forward to it. Flash’s moment in the Bruce vision was extremely cool.

    • DarkoCool

      i especially loved that we got 2 versions of the Flash. One without the suit and the other that I’m assuming is from the future.

    Ezra is a great actor, he did great on previous roles, which were different and not easy. He’s very talented, and they pick him for a reason. He is The Flash.
