When Warner Bros. released its 2016-2020 DC Comics movie slate, it came as a surprise to all when it was announced that there would be a movie adaptation of The Flash.
Despite the successful launch and ratings of The Flash
television show starring Grant Gustin, DC Comics said that movie would star We Need To Talk About Kevin's
Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash.
star Stephen Amell spoke with The Wall Street Journal
, sharing his opinion on the subject.
"Yeah. Of course. And I feel like it should be Grant doing the movie. But the important thing to remember is just because Grant Gustin plays the part of Barry Allen doesn't mean Ezra Miller can't also play Barry Allen. There can be different interpretations of the character. Anyone who is a fan of the comics knows the Flash character is one of the forces that leads to parallel universes. And who knows, they might find a fantastic actor to play Oliver Queen on the feature side who has a different take on the character. I'm certainly a departure from the typical Oliver Queen from the comic books. I just think that everybody needs to be patient with the whole thing. The fact that DC and Warner have announced all these comic book features is nothing but good for business."
Amell was also asked about the upcoming crossover episodes between the two shows. "Speed doesn't equal experience. Let's just put it that way," he stated simply. "And I am 8 years older than Grant," he teased.
As far as The Flash movie is concerned, anything is certainly possible. In the meantime, you can catch The Flash on Tuesdays at 8/7c and Arrow on Wednesdays at 8/7c, both on the CW network.
