While information about Warner Bros.’ planned solo Flash film are pretty scarce at the moment, actor Ezra Miller, who plays the character of Barry Allen/The Flash, has his own choice of villain that he would like to see his character battle in future movies. Miller appeared as The Flash in the 2016 film Suicide Squad and 2017’s Justice League.
During a Q&A panel at the recently held Wizard World Philadelphia 2018 event, Miller was asked to name a DC Comics villain with whom he would want his character to battle in future movies. The actor said that among all the options to choose from, he would go with his favorite Savitar.
“There’s a lot that just come from the world of The Flash, and various Rogues,” Miller said. “It’s hard to choose a favorite. Savitar. I really love those plotlines.”
Talking about Savitar, the character appeared as a Cold War-era pilot in the comic books, who after being struck by lightning tapped massive powers and became the God of Speed. After getting the abilities, the supervillain went on to attempt to kill more speedsters, only to get run down by the Flash (Barry Allen). Created by Mark Waid and Oscar Jimenez, Savitar first appeared in Flash (vol. 2) #108 back in December 1995.
Even recently, Savitar appeared on The CW’s The Flash as the main villain in Season 3. The character made quite the impression on fans but his arc was different compared to the comics.
It would be interesting to find out which DC villain would be pit against The Flash in the upcoming solo movie. Miller recently revealed that he had a meeting with the Flash movie directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. However, he chose not to reveal any other details about the highly anticipated film.
Miller was accompanied by actor Ray Fisher to the Wizard World Philadelphia 2018 event. Fisher portrays the superhero character of Victor Stone/Cyborg. When the same question was asked to Fisher as who he would like to see Cyborg battle with, he took the name of the iconic DC Comics character whose quite known for being Superman’s nemesis.
More information about the Flash movie is expected to come out soon.
