If there is one thing we learned from BvS (and it was hard to really learn anything), it’s that DC has absolutely no problem shoving in as many characters as they can into one film so they can get their universe up and running. But what if that isn’t just for now and Justice League movies? What if DC sees a very fluid approach to who shows up in what movie?
If the upcoming Batfleck cameo in Suicide Squad and this Forbes’ quote from DCU producer Deborah Snyder is to be believed, that’s exactly what’s they may be doing.
“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 with each other. Ezra is super funny, so the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of them.”
That very much sounds like Cyborg will be playing a major role in The Flash. Now JLA is scheduled to release before The Flash so both characters will already be introduced, but it’s still interesting to hear that The Flash may have to share screen time in his first film. The “too many heroes” issue is one that has plagued many films (Age of Ultron… ahem), but if DC can make their heroes feel fluid maybe that’s how the distinguish themselves from Marvel’s universe. Then again, with Civil War, a Captain America film in name only, Marvel may already be ahead of the game anyway.
