How The Current Flash Comics Writer Hopes Ezra Miller’s Movie Handles The Multiverse

After appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and suicide squadhelping save the world in both versions of Justice Leaguecrack wise to Aquaman in Peacemaker and even meeting his CW counterpart in “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” Ezra Miller’s Flash will finally helm his own movie next year. the flash will see Miller’s version of the Scarlet Speedster embark on an adventure across the multiverse. This will be the DC Extended Universe’s first foray into exploring alternate realities, and Jeremy Adams, who currently writes the flash comic book series, has a specific hope when it comes to the next DC movie dealing with the multiverse.

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Jeremy Adams about crafting the story for blue beetlethe DC Showcase short included in the upcoming DC Showcase — Constantine: House of Mystery compilation next to the short title, Losers and Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth!. Before the end of our conversation, I asked him what he expected most from the flash film. After expressing his excitement about seeing Michael Keaton again as Batman, Adams said:

… When they asked me to do The Flash and said, ‘What do you want to do?’, I said, ‘I just want to do Doctor Who with The Flash.’ I’m not the guy who loves The Flash who just runs around town. He’s not the character I like. I love the Golden and Silver Age Flash which is just bananas. It’s like we’re going back in time, we’re going to space, all that crazy, goofy Flash stuff. And that seems to be the multiverse of this one, it seems to be a bit lighter, and I hope that’s the case. I hope it’s fun. There’s a place for maudlin and dark, but hopefully it’s fun, and it looks like it might be leaning towards that.

The Flash certainly embarks on all sorts of adventures in the pages of DC Comics, whether it’s the Barry Allen version or others who have held the torch, like Jay Garrick and Wally West. Some stories simply see Flash protecting the citizens of Central City or Keystone City from The Rogues, others see him using his super speed to travel to other time periods or traverse other realities to face adversaries like Reverse- Flash. Adams likes the craziest Flash stories more, and from what he’s learned about the flash film so far, he hopes that Ezra Miller’s Barry Traveling Through the Multiverse will lean more into brighter territory than languish in dark corners.

That doesn’t mean there won’t be darkness in the flash but. After all, this version of Barry Allen lost his mother as a child and his father was framed for her murder. In fact, the events of this DCEU entry kick off when Barry travels back in time to save Nora Allen from being killed. We still don’t know how this decision leads to him traveling to other universes, but it’s certainly a great way to kick off Fastest Man Alive’s solo movie…pun intended slightly.

Along with the aforementioned actors, the flash sees the return of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Kiersey Clemons’ Iris West, Michael Shannon’s General Zod and Antje Traue’s Faora-Ul. the flashThe cast of also includes Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Maribel Verdú portrays Nora Allen and Ron Livingston reprising the role of Henry Allen from Billy Crudup, as well as Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field in undisclosed roles.
