Deborah Snyder has revealed that, when Ezra Miller takes the lead in the solo movie of ‘The Flash,’ he won’t be all on his lonesome.
The producer of ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ and the other upcoming DC Extended Universe movies has let slip that Ray Fisher’s Cyborg - also briefly glimpsed in ‘Batman V Superman’ - will also appear in ‘The Flash.’
In a new interview with Forbes, Snyder discussed her plans for the DCEU movies to each have their own tone and personality, making the reveal almost as an aside:
“As you can imagine, when we get to the Flash movie, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher — who plays Cyborg — are kind of our youngest characters, and they have a really nice comradery with each other.
“Ezra is super funny, so the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of them.”
Whether this has any bearing on the planned ‘Cyborg’ solo movie is not mentioned.
Set to open in March 2018, word is ‘The Flash’ will be directed by Seth Grahame-Smith, from a script by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (although this is not 100% confirmed).
It will arrive four months after The Flash and Cyborg make their fully-fledged debut in ‘Justice League Part 1′; reportedly it will be set after the events of that film, and as such will not be an origin story, unlike 2017′s ‘Wonder Woman.’
‘The Flash’ is then set to be followed by James Wan’s ‘Aquaman’ solo movie in July 2018, with ‘Shazam’ (starring Dwayne Johnson) and ‘Justice League Part 2′ landing in 2019.
‘Cyborg,’ meanwhile, is penciled in for April 2020.
