Zack Snyder Reveals Why Grant Gustin Wasn't Cast as The Flash in 'Justice League'

Director Zack Snyder has finally revealed why Grant Gustin was not cast as The Flash in the DC Universe films, specifically Justice League, despite holding down the role on the popular CW series.

“I just don’t think it was a good fit. I’m very strict with this universe, and I just don’t see a version where… that (tone is) not our world,” Zack told the New York Daily News.

“Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multiverse (idea), so it’s just not a thing that’s possible,” he continued.

Ezra Miller landed the role of The Flash in the Justice League movies.

Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill Kick Off Press Tour in China!

Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill attend a press conference for their upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Friday (March 11) in Beijing, China.

The co-stars were joined by the film’s director Zack Snyder to kick off their press tour for the new superhero film.

Ben recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly and opened up about how his Batman differs from the ones in past movies.

“What I wanted was to create a Batman that was sort of at the end of his rope physically and psychologically and emotionally, a guy who was beaten down by the world, a guy who was a little bit more of a slugger, who has more gray in his hair, and who was questioning whether the whole journey that he lived as Batman was in fact even worth it, given that he was not superhero, but now had to face a super-being, which none of the other Batmans had to confront in the movie world,” Ben said.

“It’s an interesting thing to combine, because in the Nolan Batmans, which are the defining Batmans — so magnificent — there are no other superheroes,” he added. “It’s just this guy. He never has to reconcile who he is with this idea that there are all these other people who can do these supernatural things. Having to confront that and having to deal with that is my contribution to the character.

'Justice League' Sets Production Start Date, Zack Snyder Teases Superhero Costumes!

Director Zack Snyder just gave DC Comics fans a look into the Justice League world, along with confirming a production start date!

The movie will officially begin filming on April 11, 2016, just a few weeks after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters.

“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing,” Zack told EW. “It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming,” he said. “But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”

Zack took to his Twitter and posted a photo of him with Jason Momoa (aka Aquaman). Fans quickly took note in the photo that you could see bits of Aquaman’s costume, The Flash’s costume (played by Ezra Miller), as well as Ben Affleck‘s Batman costume! See a bigger version of the pic below…

Sebastian Stan Hits Back at Zack Snyder's Marvel Diss

Sebastian Stan is firing back at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder over comments he made dissing Marvel and its movies.

The director said that the Batman and Superman characters are “transcendent of superhero movies… They’re not just, like, the flavor of the week ‘Ant-Man’ — not to be mean, but whatever it is. What is the next Blank-Man?”

Sebastian, who stars in the Captain America movies, responded to the comments in a new interview with Collider.

“I read some of those comments where he said something about Batman and Superman, I can’t remember where I read that, somewhere… Something about, ‘It’s not going to be your flavor-of-the-week Ant-Man.’ And I was like, ‘Oh thanks, Zack. That’s great. Way to do something original,’” Sebastian said. “But I would say we’re still making something very original in our own way. I mean, the Russos are coming in and taking something people are used to and they’re shaping it up and changing it in a very different way. They’re not trying to mimic a better Christopher Nolan movie or something like that.”

Batman v Superman's Zack Snyder Takes a Shot at the Marvel Universe

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder is taking a shot at the Marvel world in this brand new interview.

In response to Steven Spielberg‘s comments that “there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western,” Zack responded by saying, “I feel like he’s right. But I feel like Batman and Superman are transcendent of superhero movies in a way, because they’re Batman and Superman.”

He continued, “They’re not just, like, the flavor of the week Ant-Man—not to be mean, but whatever it is. What is the next Blank-Man?”

He also responded to rumors that Batman v Superman will be focusing more on Batman than Superman.

“Only in that because it’s a different Batman than the Batman that was in the Chris Nolan movies, so we have a little bit more explaining to do—and you just had a whole Superman movie,” Zack said. “But I think only in that way, because you need to understand where Batman is with everything. And that’s more toward the beginning, but it evens back out as it goes on.”
