Ezra Miller Talks ‘Suicide Squad’ Reviews Being Motivation For ‘Justice League’ Cast

Ezra Miller Flash

Although Suicide Squad has made a killing its opening weekend, it’s no secret that it has been considered a critical flop. Although the film opened to a record-breaking $135 million opening weekend, it’s currently “Rotten” on the Rotten Tomatoes aggregator site with a rating of 26% as well as mixed fan reviews. This is by no means signaling the end of the DC Extended Universe as both Wonder Woman and Justice League are coming next year. Actor Ezra Miller, who plays Barry Allen AKA “The Flash” in Justice League, currently filming in London, also has something to say about the reviews for Suicide Squad. The reviews while harsh, are now a means of motivation to make an even better Justice League film.

“You needn’t look any further than the Suicide Squad director and cast response to the negative reviews to feel how negative critiques motivate us. Ultimately, we can’t base anything on [the critical response]. As artists, we aim to please absolutely everybody with our work, but we also know that we have to keep expressing ourselves as best as we can express ourselves.”

Hopefully this motivation will help draw inspiration for the cast to put their best foot forward for the upcoming Justice League film.

SPOILER:
Miller also discussed his cameo in Suicide Squad. It was reported that the scene was filmed primarily by Justice League director Zack Snyder. However, Miller explained that the scene was a much more collaborative process in merging The Flash into Suicide Squad.

“Saying that Zack [Snyder] shot it would not be accurate. It was very much a collaborate effort that was supervised by DC. It was collaborative with David [Ayer].”

Suicide Squad is currently in theaters. Wonder Woman will be in theaters June 2, 2017. Justice League will be in theaters November 17, 2017.

    His cameo while short was really excellent

    • Carl

      Why? It was just a few seconds and I wasn’t even sure what he did.

      • Bill

        Great suit, he delivered a line that the flash would. He caught the boomerang and captured him. It was an excellent little cameo

        • Carl

          Really? I don’t even remember. What did he say? I hate the suit. There was a boomerang? The movie really lost my attention quickly as it jumped all over the place.

        • Steve Steve

          The only problem, I think, with Flash being there is that he surely would have found out about the giant tornado machine destroying a city and would have been right there to stop Enchantress. She was working on her “machine” for like 10 hours.

          • Joker

            Dude flash caught Boomerang weeks or months in the past. He was in Central City when he did it too.

          • Axxell

            Exactly how would that impede him from going to Midway City to help out?

          • Joker

            What kept Batman or Wonder Woman from going there too? We don’t know why the Flash wouldn’t have gone to Midway City to see what’s wrong, just that he didn’t.

    “Ultimately, we can’t base anything on [the critical response].” Unfortunately though, the studio did and seem to have muddled up SS quite a bit.

    JL better deliver because it was heart breaking to see how sad Ben Affleck was about the BvS reviews.

  • Redford Jefferson Madison III

    Motivate you to do what? Its not the actors that are missing the mark, its the choices made by studios and to a lesser extent directors. All the DCU movies have a great cast, and have great scripts and stories that the studio have amassed over the years, they’re just picking the wrong elements to put on-screen. Hopefully the Geoff Johns leadership will fully capitalise on the potential these movies have.

    • Theclaw Yaww

      They do not have great scripts

      • Redford Jefferson Madison III

        I meant that WB has a number of different treatments they’ve bought for all of these DC IPs. There’s no reason for WB not to be able to compile a great script from the ideas they have sourced and the access to DC that they have.
