Ezra Miller while he was promoting his newest film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with Collider, discussed his feelings on The Flash, Geoff John’s contribution to the overall DC Extended Universe and the departure of Director Rick Famuyiwa.
EZRA MILLER DISCUSSES HIS FEELINGS ON RICK FAMUYIWA DEPARTURE
“These processes are complicated, and I think it can—from afar—appear to be, as you say, something interpersonal or dramatic,” he told us. “That is rarely the case. These are groups of people taking the development of projects extremely seriously, and the teams are changing all the time. There’s often a lot of flux in who the team of the production of a film is before that production starts, and in this case, you hear about it, because it’s a critical figure—the directors that have been coming on and leaving. For me, it’s sort of a tragic relay race, and we’ve had a couple really incredible people carry this baton, and their marks are left on that baton, and the work that they’ve given to the project will certainly be represented in whatever the final product comes to be.”
EZRA MILLER TALKS ABOUT HIS LOVE FOR THE FLASH COMICS, EVEN GOLDEN AGE’S JAY GARRICK
“I mean I’ve been investigating and composing the character since the moment I started considering doing the screen test,” he said. “Fortunately, a lot of that research is extremely fun and involves reading Flash Comics and other comics from the world of DC, The Brave and the Bold, and I’m really interested in the early history and some of my favorite stuff is Silver Age. Even the Golden Age and the Jay Garrick stuff, the original Flash. It’s just so fascinating, so endlessly compelling. It’s such an incredible set-up for exploration, all these fascinating concepts in physics, in mysticism, in fantasy… he can go anywhere. He’s that figure of the DC pantheon who transcends the realms, sort of like Hermes or Mercury before him in the respective Greek and Roman mythologies that the character’s (creator) Gardner Fox clearly very much based (him on).”
EZRA MILLER TALKS ABOUT GEOFF JOHNS AND HIS COMIC BOOK KNOWLEDGE
“Yes, he’s a good guy to have around,” Miller agreed. “He keeps us full of information and he keeps us from making ignorant mistakes that would upset the fans across the world because you pretty much can’t get someone with a deeper knowledge of this universe than Geoff Johns.”
EZRA MILLER SPEAKS ON HIS EXCITEMENT FOR THINGS TO COME
“I’ve had glimpses of various points in the development of it,” he said when asked whether he had seen any of the scripts for The Flash yet, “And I’m extremely excited.
