Warner Bros. Hire Ezra Miller as “The Flash” Scriptwriter

Warner Bros. Hire Ezra Miller as “The Flash” Scriptwriter

Ezra Miller is taking a more active role as The Flash. Aside from playing the lead role of Barry Allen, Warner Bros. has just hired the actor and celebrated comics author Grant Morrison to pen a script for the long-awaited movie.

According to reports, Miller and Morrison are looking to create a much darker take on the story of the Scarlet Speedster. This approach, however, contradicts the lighter approach of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the scriptwriters hired back in January 2018. With the success of more ebullient films such as Aquaman and the positive responses to Shazam!, sources claim that the studio is currently favoring a merrier superhero route.

Much like the character, Miller is in a race against time as his current deal to play the Flash supposedly expires this May. WB’s script choice could greatly affect the casting; if Daley and Goldstein’s lighthearted script is chosen, Miller may leave the superhero project.
