Warner Bros./DC Comics has announced that Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) has been cast as the cinematic version of The Flash.

For a new Flash feature film for 2018.   I assume he will debut in the Justice League film in 2017 and possibly a cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Just when we're getting used to the new guy on TV (SECOND WEEK, FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!), they pull a stunt like this.

So much for the new series lasting any length of time.

It's almost like they want it to die, now.

I mean, four years and the movie's here?

Anyone get the feeling the show is only being used as a means to make the public aware of the character, and as soon as the movie's really on the horizon, the show will be executed?

I'm also pretty annoyed over the looks of the new guy. Ezra Miller? He's going to be Barry Allen? The TV guy even has the wrong color hair, but Miller has a totally wrong look all together.

This is just SO off for so many reasons...

Because Time Warner thinks DC's comicbook fans are idiots.

They took Batman out of the hands of SMALLVILLE's show runners (and the show had to turn "Adam Knight" into a zombie instead of Bruce Wayne) because they thought we were too dumb to understand there can be two versions of the same character, one on TV, one in the movies.

The only reason "Superman Returns" was even made while SMALLVILLE was on was because Time Warner had a legal obligation to make a movie or their fight with the S&S heirs would have gone badly for them. (Plus, technically Clark wasn't Superman on SMALLVILLE.)

I'll be SURPRISED if they let the FLASH television show stay on the air as the movie approaches.

And as for the movie being a success, with who? Look at Miller. Is THAT Barry Allen? Is he Wally West? Bart? (He sure ain't Jay. Not even the nuJay.)

Something is SO wrong with this casting. WHAT are they thinking?

The funniest thing about Smallville was that the Green Arrow in that show was only different from Batman in that he had arrows.

It was like the show runners were like oh we can't use Batman? Fine, we'll do it anyway and just not call him Batman.

As to the Flash. I think everyone has already figured this out. They aren't worried about it. I saw an article that said the DC tv show universe and the movie universe will be separate.

They're just gonna leave each other alone.

But you won't see Batman or Superman on the small screen.

I'm RIGHT THERE WITH YOU.

If you look at, I think the FIRST Green Arrow episode, he was going from one building to another using a line and grappling hook, and the music they played sounded JUST LIKE music you'd hear in a Batman movie.

I knew EXACTLY what they were saying.

Then there was a scene, much later, where Oliver (in costume, I think) and Clark were atop a building, looking out at the city. I think they were standing on a stone gargoyle and Oliver was saying, while standing right at Clark's side, that they'd be there together to protect the people.

It was obviously saying that Oliver was the Batman of the SMALLVILLE reality.

I mean, I'm glad Bruce finally showed up in that universe, even it it was only in the comicbook, but when the show was running, they were plainly telling the audience "Oliver is Batman".

I don't know anyone looks at Ezra Miller and thinks Flash. But I wouldn't have picked Grant Gustin either so what do I know?

Technically, yes, or so it seems. But I have to say, the best Bruce Wayne ever depicted on big or small screen is appearing on Gotham right now. David Mazouz nails it. Never before has it been nailed. Never, not even once, have I seen Bruce Wayne on any screen. Until Mazouz.
