The Flash movie is expected to land in theaters in the summer of 2022 as a part of the DC Extended Universe. Although the DCEU has garnered mixed reviews from critics and fans, The Flash could potentially help turn things around. Unfortunately, fans still cannot seem to get behind Ezra Miller as The Scarlet Speedster, and many prefer Grant Gustin of The CW’s The Flash series. Here’s what fans are saying about Miller, Gustin, and The Flash movie.

Ezra Miller has portrayed The Flash in three DCEU films so far, including cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The actor had a more substantial co-starring role in Justice League, and Miller is expected to reprise the role in the solo film.
Although the actor has banked lots of experience as The Flash,Miller’s portrayal has not gone without criticism. Fans are still having atough time buying Miller as the Fastest Man Alive. Armchair pundits haveflooded social media with comments questioning Miller’s unique brand of BarryAllen.
“Ezra Miller is not my Flash,” barbed a Twitter user.
“Grant Gustin is the best live-action Flash by far,” tweeted a fan. That is one of many comments that have swamped Twitter since Miller premiered as the speedster on the big screen.
Gustin has become remarkably popular with fans for his portrayal of Barry Allen on televisionand his polished public image. In contrast, Miller, who received a lukewarm reception from Justice League audiences, has recently received backlash due to a personal controversy.
A video that was leaked in April appears to show Miller allegedly choking a woman. Some have speculated that the incident was meant as a joke, but the consensus is that fans are unhappy about Miller’s actions regardless of the intent.
Miller has yet to comment on the incident, but fans have plenty tosay. And many have taken the recent turn of events as an opportunity to doubledown on their support of Gustin.
