This news comes after the surprise guest cameo that Miller had on The Flash television series back on Tuesday January 14th for the big DC Television series big crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Three.
The day after the episode aired Guggenheim went on to Twitter to confirm that the appearance by Ezra was made possible due to DC Entertainment CCO/Publisher Jim Lee:
I’m doing a few interviews tomorrow and I’m sure the subject of Ezra’s appearance will come up, but what you need to know right now is that gentleman and scholar, @JimLee, was instrumental in making this moment happen. 🙏 #CrisisOnInfiniteEarths

Then in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Guggenheim goes on to talk on how the cameo was made possible and the restrictions they had due to not wanting to step on the toes Flashpoint movie that’s in development:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You tweeted that DC Entertainment CCO/Publisher Jim Lee played a pivotal role in pulling off the Ezra Miller cameo. How did he help it all come together? Also, did any of the people on the film side have input on the contents of the scene?
MARC GUGGENHEIM: Absolutely. Basically, I was really working hand-in-hand with Jim. From the moment we found out that this was a possibility, to once we knew Grant Gustin was cool and on board with it and Ezra was on board with it, I would send drafts of the scene to both Jim Lee and [DC Entertainment’s film VP] Adam Schlagman and we would just go back and forth. The trick with the scene is that I didn’t want to and they didn’t want me to do anything that stepped on the toes of the Flashpoint movie that they’re developing. So, we really worked hand-in-hand. Jim was really great about just making sure that all the parties were talking to each other, that nothing was getting stalled. He was a cheerleader when he needed to be, a diplomat when he needed to be. He really stepped up in every way
The Flash movie is slated to be released on July 1, 2022.
