With the ongoing and highly successful run of The Flash on The CW, the upcoming The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller needed something that will set the big screen universe for the hero apart from the current small screen one.
According to a report by Den of Geek! US, the people behind the upcoming 2018 film are working on a very specific costume design to avoid “any comparison to the well designed and received TV version.” With that, the film is said to be taking on a “tech-based” suit, further enforcing that Ezra Miller’s character in the film is a tech-savvy person. The costume is said to be more like a suit of armor than a simple superhero suit, like the one Grant Gustin wears for the TV series.
In a previous report by Cinema Blend, the Twitter account going by the name DCEU Feed. According to the Twitter post (which noticeably did not cite any source) Ezra Miller himself allegedly revealed that his character as Barry Allen will have a long hair, as he will be appearing in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Additionally, Miller allegedly said that his character will be having a “ripped physique” in the DC Extended Universe film, as opposed to a bulky build. Also, it was hinted that The Flash in the films will be sporting a “post-apocalyptic” costume design. While this was not detailed by the source of the information, it is worth noting that the costumes of Batman and Wonder Woman were both based on “darker” takes on the characters.
Previous rumors claim that a scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature a short peek on The Flash, as footage of a bank robbery stopped by some kind of “blur” will be shown, though it was not made clear if an actual costumed appearance by Ezra Miller will be seen.
As with all rumors, always treat unofficial information with a grain of salt.
