It's a particularly exciting time to be a DC fan. Because in addition to The CW's Arrow-verse shows returning to TV, the DCEU's next installment is just a month away. Zack Snyder's Justice League will unite the DC trinity with newcomers The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman for an adventure to save the Earth from Steppenwolf and his Parademon forces. Ezra Miller finally get his proper debut in the DCEU after two quick cameos, and he hasn't been shy about sharing his particular perspective of the experience, usually to hilarious results. He recently spoke to the experience of being in The Batmobile, and he used some colorful language about just how cool it is.
You know what it feels like sitting in the Batmobile?. It's like an orgasm. It just ripples through your whole body. Oh my God.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I like to call a nerdgasm. And being on the set of Justice League must be chock full of them, at least for someone appropriately geeky like Ezra Miller.
Ezra Miller's candid excitement about the coolness of Justice League seems to be reminiscent of his character in the film. The Flash's introduction into the DCEU will be a breath of fresh air, as his naivety and excitement about being an up and coming superhero will be a major aspect of Miller's characterization. The trailers set this up well, with The Flash geeking out about Batman, and instantly agreeing to help Bruce Wayne's mission. This sense of youthful excitement will also be part of Ray Fisher's Cyborg, as they're significantly younger than the other members of The League.
And it looks like the actor's excitement about the props in Justice League wasn't exclusive to Batman stuff. In a recent interview with SFX Magazine (via Comic Book), he also elaborated on his fascination with other characters' gear... sometimes to his co-stars' chagrin.
I would just touch Jason's [Momoa] trident all day. He'd be like, 'Get off my trident!' I'll just touch Cyborg's glowing eye. Just gently caress the glowing eye, you know? The lasso, I was always grabbing the lasso. All the Bat gadgets...Man, it's awesome. Fucking awesome.
It looks like Ezra Miller was like a kids in a candy store while working on Justice League. And because of this enthusiasm, we can assume that the reshoots ordered by sub director Joss Whedon were probably like going back to school for him. And between his role in the DCEU and playing Credence in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, there will probably be a few more nerdgasms coming down the pipeline for the 25 year old actor.
Justice League will arrive in theaters, complete with Ezra Miller's Flash, on November 17th. In the meantime, check our 2018 release list to plan your trips to the movies in the New Year.
