In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ezra Miller discussed his role as The Flash in Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie and explained how Flash interacts with darker heroes like Batman and Aquaman.
“Flash is Ringo Starr, He annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone.”
If you’ve seen the Justice League animated series then you’ll know that the Flash’ peculiar sense of humour doesn’t always work well with other members of the team. With characters like Batman and Aquaman, it’s easy to understand why The Flash might come across as annoying. He’s a rookie who enjoys being a superhero, while Batman is a much more experienced vigilante.
Miller then went on to describe his Justice League teammates, and it sounds like the League is forming one hell of a family:
“Uncle Fish Curry [Aquaman] is very grumpy. Dad [Batman] gets grumpy too. (He’s had a long life of fighting crime.) Wonder Woman is very considerate, so even though she’s annoyed with the Flash, she’s still very compassionate.”
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
