Usain Bolt was being interviewed by MTV and was asked if he would be interested in making an appearance in a superhero movie. While Bolt doesn’t seem interested in switching careers for acting, he did say that he would like to make a cameo in the upcoming Flash movie.
Usain Bolt has won nine Olympic gold medals, has set world records and is considered to be the fastest man ever timed. It only makes sense that the fastest man alive in our universe would meet the fastest man in comics, Barry Allen/The Flash.
Check out the interview here:
Ezra Miller first appeared as Barry Allen/The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice briefly and had a larger cameo in Suicide Squad, taking down Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney).
The Flash feature film is moving forward despite the loss of another director. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Rick Famuyiwa has exited the project due to “creative differences” with Warner Bros. According to the report, Famuyiwa’s edgier take on the project clashed with the studio’s vision. The director has been working on the project over the past few months and his departure means that the current production start date could be delayed. He was brought on board after Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote the film’s script and was also attached to direct, parted ways with the studio over the same reason.
The movie has already cast a couple of key roles opposite Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. Back in June, Kiersey Clemons (Dope) landed the coveted role of Iris West. Not long after, Billy Crudup (Watchmen) signed on to play Barry’s father, Henry.
The Flash is currently scheduled to be released on March 16, 2018.
