Ezra Miller Talks ‘Extremely Fun’ Flash Movie, Kiersey Clemons as Iris

Though The CW‘s TV version of The Flash will be making its season premiere in a few months, the big-screen version of the character is hard at work on the upcoming Justice League film now with his eyes already on his own solo movie. Speaking with MTV, Ezra Miller spoke about his and director Rick Famuyiwa’s intentions for the film, saying:

“I think there’s just an intention to make something extremely fun and something superhuman and something deeply human. It’s the thing we’re all trying to do, but I think Rick’s mind and his heart are in an excellent place, and his expertise as a filmmaker, as evidenced by Dope, all come together as very exciting factors to me.”

Miller also opened up about the recently-cast Kiersey Clemons, who will reportedly play Iris West in the film.

“Kiersey is amazing. I had the opportunity to read with her and do some explorative acting in our chemistry read… the results of these experiments clearly were positive. I’m just deeply excited about what these people carry in their hearts, and I’m excited about the radical intention that everybody seems to be bringing to the genesis chamber of this film.”

The Flash boasts an original treatment by The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It is currently without an official release date, although production is planned to start this year.
