Ezra Miller is taking his love for ‘The Flash’ just one step further as he teams up with comics author Grant Morrison to tackle the script for the forthcoming standalone feature.
With Miller co-writing the project this could also be a way for him to return to the character of the crimefighter Barry Allen. Instead of going down the more light-hearted, witty route which Warner is currently dabbling in with there DC offerings such as Aquaman and Shazam. Miller is said to want to take this script down a darker path, but that hasn’t always proved fruitful for the studio.
The project has been stuck in limbo since 2017 due to creative differences but it would now appear Warner and Miller have reached some kind of compromise to see what the actor can come up with. For Miller to change hats from actor to writer of a character is rare and shows just how much of a fan and how committed he is in getting this next instalment right.

Miller has been attached to the role of Barry Allen aka ‘The Flash’ since 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and has subsequently reprised the role in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Miller’s ties to Warner Bros are currently in a strong position being a staple character in the Harry Potter spin-off’s Fantastic Beasts franchise. He played Credence Barebone in the first and went on to reprise the role in ‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’ he is also reported to be attached to a third.
