Ezra Miller of 'The Flash' and the upcoming 'Justice League' movie is DC through and through (probably contractually tbh).
Today he was bewildered and a bit put out when he was asked to sign a poster of marvel's TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
He tactfully explained to this clueless individual why he couldn't sign the poster.
"It's so obvious that I can't sign that. I'm sorry," Miller said.
Last week, it was all but confirmed that Michael B. Jordan would be joining the cast for The Fantastic Four reboot as The Human Torch. Now, he's been talking to Zack Snyder, director of Man of Steel, to cross the comic divide and join the DC universe as a 'recurring character' beginning with 2016's Man of Steel 2/Batman vs Superman.
This casting choice is a rumor at best, but the knowledge that Snyder is casting yet another recurring role has perked up some ears, and speculation is flying. Since Jordan is black, most are assuming that he'd be in talks for John Stewart's turn as Green Lantern, or the mechanized hero Cyborg. But this is the modern era, where actors of color are beginning to up for any superhero role, so younger roles, like Robin or The Flash could fit the bill as well. I guess we'll just have to wait until 2016.
For those unaware, Flashpoint was a five-issue miniseries authored by Geoff Johns, and featuring art by Andy Kubert. Glorious art like this:
Flashpoint is the story of an alternate universe without Superman or The Flash, and with Wonder Woman and Aquaman's nations stacked up against one another on the tipping point of engaging in all-out war. And of course there was Thomas Wayne who was Batman, driven insane after his son Bruce was murdered in Crime Alley. What up Thomas Wayne?
Kind of a trip, right? Kind of awesome, right?
So, with the world pretty much f**ked seven ways from Sunday, with an ultra-violent war raging between Atlantis and Themyscira (plunges sections of Europe into the ocean..), Barry Allen being the only one who could remember a brighter, better world, pre-Flashpoint, has to muster up the strength and courage to restore his powers so he can time travel back to that fateful day and fix the mess he made.
Annd the big twist here is that the horrific post-Flashpoint world was a manifestation of Barry Allen traveling back in time to rescue his mother from being killed by Reverse-Flash.
The Flashpoint storyline was adapted into an animated feature film, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and is one of the most widely-acclaimed, best reviewed animated DC Universe movies. Check out the trailer below:
