The all-star cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will include a relative unknown actor as Flash. Ezra Miller was asked about the casting while at Sundance.

“Zack Snyder told me on the phone that he wanted me to play the Flash while I was eating a tilapia in a small Central American village. That was definitely a moment that prompted me to question the fabric of my reality.”

Miller is set to also star in the two-part Justice League films and a solo Flash film due in 2018.
