It's almost hard to believe, but the Justice league movie is almost upon us. Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon's epic team up film will fly into theaters in a month and change, uniting the DC trinity with newcomers like The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. This will be the first time The League has been assembled in live-action for the silver screen, and the fandom is eager to see the motley group of heroes team up against Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons. But which hero will end up being the fan favorite? DC's head honcho Geoff Johns thinks it will be none other than Ezra Miller's Flash.
It looks like being the comedic relief of the Justice League is one way to make some fans.
It should come to no surprise that Ezra Miller's Barry Allen will end up being a serious scene stealer when Justice League arrives in theaters in November. While Zack Snyder's first two movies in the DCEU were morose and dark, Geoff Johns and company seem to be making a concentrated effort to lighten things up. This juxtaposition is clear form the film's previously released footage, which features way more color and comedy than Snyder's previous installments.
And The Flash will no doubt be one chewing the scenery in Justice League. He's younger and more inexperienced than the majority of the team, and seems to really enjoy his superpowers. In the trailer we see Barry seriously geek out about Bruce Wayne being The Batman, and immediately sign up to battle and unknown alien force. I mean, why not?
This carefree attitude and The Flash's comedic beats is what makes Ezra Miller such brilliant casting as the Scarlet Speedster. Miller has a penchant for playing quirky characters in films such as Perks of Being a Wallflower and Trainwreck. Having the youthful energy of Barry Allen injected into Zack Snyder's next blockbuster will bring a breathe of fresh air to the growing franchise, and make sure that Justice League doesn't take itself too seriously. There also appears to be some comedic moments coming from Jason Momoa's Aquaman, as his careless attitude will no doubt clash with uptight characters like Bruce Wayne.
