Remember a few days ago we reported that Grant Gustin was totally ok with Ezra Miller playing the Flash in the DC movies?
Well, it looks like both actors may well be THE Flash in the DC universe.
Ok, so the Flash TV series has set up the mult-verse concept (something that DC have used as a lynchpin in their comics from, well, forever) – the idea that there are many versions of our universe and in it characters could be good in one, evil in another, a superhero in one, a regular person in another, and so on and so forth.
It’s not only a cool story idea, it also gives the stories infinite possibilitites and it looks like the movies and TV shows are considering capitalising on it.
Kevin Smith, the uber-nerd himself, on his latest Fatman on Batman podcast, talks about the recent DC Night event (he was a host) and how it may have revealed a very delicious idea:”We did a piece where we talked about — I don’t know how much I’m supposed to say because they cut it out,” Smith said, “But the idea [came up] of, ‘Hey man, DC is known for nothing if not a multiverse, ‘so at which point I was like [to DC Creative Officer Geoff Johns who was also hosting], ‘Could they f@#king crossover?’ And he was like, ‘Ahh.’ So doors are being left open and stuff like that.”
“Think about this,” he adds, “you can have Ezra Miller be The Flash and you could also have Grant be The Flash, because there’s a multiverse at work,” he adds!
Smith is confident that Johns was confirming this may be something that DC are discussing. As a fan, I think the idea is a great one. Just once… and it’s all beautifully tied together.
