Ezra Miller Shines as Flash in Press for “Justice League”

Ezra Miller may be a talented actor and superstar due to his roles in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The Perks of Being a Wallflowerbut we love him even more because he’s as much of a fan of these franchises as we are.  As he prepares for the release of Justice League, Ezra sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss his role as Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Flash, and why he related so much to the character:

He’s this really endearing, altruistic nerd. He’s the 13-year-old Metallica fan, and Metallica says, ‘We lost our drummer in a freak accident. We need you to play drums, bro!’ I don’t even have drumsticks!

The Flash has been popping up in all sorts of press coverage for the movie, from a new photo from the set to this TV spot:

 

 

Though the plot of Justice League is still under wraps, we do know that Ezra will be teaming up with Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman to face off against a new, more menacing enemy. They are joined by Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. An incredible ensemble cast is featured as well, including Aberforth Dumbledore actor Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West), and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).

It seems impossible to wait until Justice League is released on November 18! Hopefully, we’ll get another look at the movie at San Diego Comic-Con, where it is speculated that a second trailer may premiere. For now, we all we can do is wait… and maybe binge-watch all of Ezra’s movies in preparation for his triumphant return in Justice League.

Before we settle into our seats at Justice League in November, there’s another event we just can’t wait for. MuggleNet Live! 2017: Nineteen Years Later is on September 1 at Universal Orlando, where we get access to Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express, and we’ll be joined by a bunch of special guests!
