Ezra Miller is set for his second appearance (well, first meaty one) as the Flash on November 17 in Justice League.
While doing press for the film, Miller had an interview with Fox 5 DC where he described how original director Zack Snyder envisioned Justice League with a lighter, more Whedon-esque tone, long before Joss Whedon signed on to help with production:
“I definitely think it’s a realization of a cohesive vision that comes, you know, mainly from Zack, and comes from, you know, the cumulative process of the building of the DCEU. And I definitely, I feel something that reflects majorly what Zack showed me in early comic frames in a lot of the movie. What’s funny is that I think that Zack was doing a much lighter, more comedic, almost more Whedony thing, and then Joss stepped on and was fulfilling Zack’s vision. It’s an incredible instance of two artists in collaboration, and honoring each other’s work.”
Whedon was brought on the film even before Snyder had to drop out due to a family tragedy, taking over reshoots and post-production, always with the intent of completing Snyder’s vision rather than adjusting it to be closer to Whedon’s The Avengers. Snyder does have the sole directing credit for the movie, though Whedon has a co-writing credit for his work punching up the script for reshoots.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
