“The Flash” will be a comedy movie. Or at least, the DC adaptation will have a comic tone. This, producer Deborah Snyder seems to have implied in a recent interview.
“Ezra [Miller] is super funny,” Snyder told Forbes. “So the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of [the DC movies].” Does this mean the movie will be a full-blown comedy? Snyder did not elaborate on this. However, she did explain why they got Miller to play the part.
“[It] was really important to get really good talent involved in these films,” Snyder said. “[It is] all about…what they can bring to it, so [the films] feel unique and different.”
Miller has already made his debut as the iconic DC character in a cameo for “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He first gained worldwide attention for his role in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” The actor also recently displayed his comedic chops in “Trainwreck,” the comedy film written by Amy Schumer.
This is not the only detail Zack Snyder’s wife and producing partner shared about “The Flash” movie. According to Collider, Snyder seems to have let slip that Cyborg will appear in “The Flash.”
“As you can imagine, when we get to the Flash movie, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher — who plays Cyborg — are kind of our youngest characters. And they have a really nice comradery with each other,” she was quoted as saying. So, is the DC Universe’s favourite speedster teaming up with Cyborg in his upcoming standalone movie?
Collider did point out, however, that Snyder could have been talking about the upcoming “Justice League” movie. Both Cyborg and Miller’s character are expected to be featured in it. But it is also possible, the producer might have also been referring to Barry Allen’s standalone movie.
