Arrowverse showrunner Marc Guggenheim has revealed new details about Ezra Miller’s appearance as The Flash on Crisis on Infinite Earths.
There were many surprise appearances and shocking moments that happened throughout the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, but none as surprising as Ezra Miller’s The Flash cameo. Ezra Miller has been waiting for a chance to do his own The Flash solo film for sometime with some thinking that he was no longer attached to the movie until it got an official release date. The solo film is currently dated for July, 1 2022, with IT‘s Andy Muschietti being the latest director attached to the project.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths scene saw Ezra Miller and Grant Gustin meet, which was an unprecedented move for both DC television and movies. On a recent episode on Fake Nerd Podcast, Arrowverse head Marc Guggenheim opened up about how Ezra Miller’s cameo as The Flash came to be:
“There were certain things that we knew were not touchable and the cinematic universe — before that call — fell into that category. The nice thing about doing something for years is you’re there for all the changes. You’re there for the personnel changes, and you’re there for the philosophical changes and the changes in policy, and this just happened to be one of those situations where people changed their minds. I was so glad that they did, even though the change of mind did come after we were wrapped on the whole crossover. So it came very late, but as they say, better late than never.”
Guggenheim is still shocked that they were able to get Ezra Miller for Crisis on Infinite Earths, but it was actually easier to pull of compared to other cameos:
“I did feel like the cinematic universe was the one that got away. If you were to ask me, short of bringing Christopher Reeve back to life, what would you most want to do I would have said include the cinematic universe, and I still can’t believe that we were able to do that. The funny thing is, once we got the approval, it came together almost easier than any other cameo. I mean, certainly, there were other cameos that were a lot harder to pull off, that required a lot more scheduling creativity or financial creativity or logistical creativity, you name it! This sort of all came together really nice.”
