‘The Flash’ Solo Movie May Team Ray Fisher’s Cyborg Up With Ezra Miller’s Speedy Hero
By now you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and if you haven’t, then you’re still probably well-aware of the Justice League cameos — they weren’t exactly kept secret, after all (Warner Bros. even spilled the details of The Flash’s cameo to EW weeks ago). In any case, it looks like we may see two of those characters team up in a film separate from the Justice League movies, as Batman v Superman producer Deborah Snyder reiterates that #NotAllDCMovies will have the same gritty tone.
In an interview with Forbes, Snyder appeared to reveal that Ray Fisher’s Cyborg will team up with Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen / The Flash in the latter’s solo movie, which hits theaters in 2018:
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 [sic] with each other. Ezra is super funny, so the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of them.
Both characters will appear together in Justice League: Part One, which arrives on November 17, 2017. The Flash movie hits theaters on March 16, 2018. We didn’t get to spend much time with either hero in Batman v Superman, as they both had fairly brief cameos — though Miller surprisingly had a bigger cameo than any of his fellow future Justice League members.
Miller’s version of The Flash appears twice in the film: once alongside Cyborg, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in Lex Luthor’s secret meta-human files, and again in an extended bit where the Scarlet Speedster travels back in time to warn Ben Affleck’s Batman of the dangers of Superman — though Batman isn’t sure if this is a genuine warning or another one of his wacky doom-and-gloom dreams. (Side note: this Batman is probably a doomsday prepper, no pun intended.)
Cyborg’s cameo, on the other hand, briefly revealed the character’s origins as the result of an experiment with a Mother Box (confirmed recently by Zack Snyder). Fisher’s superhero won’t have his own solo film until 2020, so it makes sense that WB would want to incorporate him into as many other films in the DC movie universe as possible.
Seth Grahame-Smith is writing and directing The Flash solo movie, based on a story concept developed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller — all of which already sounds more fun than Batman v Superman.
