In a new interview, Ezra Miller says that he sees himself as “a hot air balloon attached to a fairground that’s been inflating for a while” and is about to endure a “snipping of the string.” Translation? He’s got some exciting projects in the works, including that long-rumored Flash movie we all thought was dead!
Speaking to W Korea, the actor says that the Flash’s very first feature film is “absolutely confirmed.”
“I’ll tell you the ones that I can tell you about because they are absolutely confirmed,” says Miller when asked about what kind of projects he has in the pipeline. “Fantastic Beasts 3, the Flash movie, I’m making more music with [my band] Sons of an Illustrious Father. [I’m] also making music of my own, which will be sort of a new project — a solo project.”
News of the Flash feature film adaptation comes as a welcome surprise for many reasons. Not only will this mean that we’ll be getting another LGBTQ+ actor portraying a superhero onscreen following Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie in the Thor and Avengers franchises — Miller is queer and genderfluid and is “comfortable with all pronouns” but says he/him/his is “fine” — but it also means that the Flash movie is happening! The film, part of the DC Extended Universe superhero film franchise, has cycled through a few filmmakers since it was first announced, IndieWire notes, but is now apparently going to be helmed by It director Andy Muschietti.
