Ezra Miller has an update for THE FLASH fans, which actually sounds quite promising overall. While doing press in Japan for FANTASTIC BEASTS, the actor gave a very long-winded and detailed update on the status of the film, addressing why it's taking so long to come to life, how it will be a gift to fans and then geeking out about how it will start a whole new "Speedstar Universe". It's been two years since his last DCEU appearance in JUSTICE LEAGUE, so what's the hold up? Ezra explains:

“It’s getting really good now. Anyone that knows anything about Barry Allen knows that he’s always late but then when he arrives, he gets stuff done. And that’s definitely how this film’s production schedule is proceeding. We are a little late, but the reason why we are late, and this is the honest to God’s truth the reason we are late, is because we are all, and I include myself in this, we are very meticulously focused on making a movie that is just not one of the greatest superhero movies that we can possibly make, this movie is also going to be a gift to the fans. This movie is going to be a real pure offering to the fans of this material.”

It's unclear if this will still be a variation of the Flashpoint storyline, but Miller has a lot ot say about that connecting tissue as it relates to the DC Universe as a whole and it sounds like they're certainly focused on making something more in-depth and involved than a dude in a red suit just running around really fast.

"We are talking about sparking a whole new universe, which is not just the DC multiverse, it’s also, it’s the Speedster multiverse. And the Speedsters are the ones who connect all of the disparate pieces. Because Marvel is a universe, just one world and all the same characters in it. DC is a multiverse. All these different stories with different realities, characters, and versions of characters, and the Speedsters are the ones who move through it all. They are like the connecting bridge between all these difference collaged parts.”

While I think many are anxious to see THE FLASH race to the big screen, I'm glad they're taking their time to develop this properly and not go in half cocked. We've all seen what happens when that goes down and it's rarely a pretty sight. After the massive success of AQUAMAN, I'm sure they're paying attention to the elements that worked best there and applying those lessons learned to THE FLASH as well. I'd rather wait a bit longer to get the best possible film, rather than have them rush it out the door and get something lackluster.

THE FLASH doesn't have a set date at this point as they work to crack the script, but John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are still onboard to direct. Maybe by the end of 2020? We'll see...
