The Flash director says Ezra Miller will return if there's a sequel
Andy Muschietti opened up about Miller's future in DC.
The Flash director Andy Muschietti has opened up about Ezra Miller reprising the titular role for a potential sequel.
The DC caper is set to land in cinemas in June and marks Miller's first solo outing as speedster Barry Allen following the character's introduction in 2016's Batman v Superman.
Speaking on The Discourse podcast, Muschietti said that if a sequel happens, Miller, who has been involved in multiple scandals including run-ins with the law in recent years, won't be replaced.
“I don’t think there’s anyone that can play that character as well as they did. The other depictions of the character are great, but this particular vision of the character, they just excelled in doing it. And, as you said, the two Barrys – it feels like a character that was made for them,” he said (via The Playlist).
His sister and producer Barbara Muschietti added, “In principal photography, Ezra was brilliant and the most committed and the most professional [actor]. Ezra gave everything for this role – physically, creatively, emotionally. They were absolutely supreme.”

Interestingly, Miller wasn't part of the recent DC shake-up, which confirmed that Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck wouldn't reprise the roles of Superman and Batman following James Gunn and Peter Safran's appointments as DC's co-CEOs.
