The stunt coordinator on The Flash praised Ezra Miller’s preparation to play Barry Allen in his solo film.
Although The Flash star Ezra Miller recently made the headlines for supposedly choking a woman in Iceland, the stunt coordinator on the film praised the actor’s prepared approach to the role and the stunts that go hand-in-hand with playing the Scarlet Speedster. Fans got a brief taste of what Barry Allen’s solo adventure could look like in Justice League, with the slow-motion fight scenes under Gotham’s harbour and against a newly resurrected Superman.
While speaking to Film Threat, Eunice Hutheart explained that Ezra Miller worked incredibly hard on preparing for the stunts involved with playing Barry Allen. She pointed out that usually she goes to an actor with concepts for stunts, but Miller came to her with his own ideas on the character.
“Ezra as Flash, honestly, his movement, he worked so hard, he came having done all his homework. Normally I’ll grab the actor and I’ll grab the character, and start talking about developing concepts – he’d done it all! He came, and he goes, ‘Yeah, but I’ve been working on this, what do you think?’ and it was brilliant.”

Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie was on track to begin production next month, but its start date will likely be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint storyline. For those unaware, the Flashpoint comic book storyline followed The Flash 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.
The Flash is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on July 1, 2022.
