Ezra Miller could very well be recast as the star of The Flash unless the darker script he’s writing can change Warner Bros. and DC Films’ minds.
Miller joined the DC fold a few years back as part of Zack Snyder’s vision for a larger DC universe when he first cameoed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
As his role in the world grew, though, plans for a solo movie had trouble settling into place.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, there’s a reason The Flash hasn’t started shooting yet. Miller’s vision for the film and that of Daley and Goldstein is clashing.[irp posts=1925]
Miller, however, reportedly wants a darker take on the material. Both sides have been working to come to a compromise since John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were hired, but in an effort to make his vision clear, Miller is now writing the script himself along with superstar comic book author Grant Morrison.
It’s reportedly the actor’s initiative to tackle the story himself, after their attempt to compromise last year didn’t lead to an agreement.
While Miller is said to be deeply committed to the role, there’s a possibility that the actor will leave the project should the studio go with Daley and Goldstein’s version and forgo Miller’s take on the superhero.
Miller’s contract on Flash will reportedly expire in May.
