“Could TV Flash Meet Movie Flash?” Segment Cut From Dawn Of The Juctice League Special

flash-of-two-worlds_ezraKevin Smith, director, comic fan, motormouth and blogger, has revealed that a very interesting segment about the DC multiverse was cut from the recent Dawn Of The Justice League TV special that he hosted.

DC comics continuity is, of course, dominated by the multiverse concept, with different versions of the same characters existing in various realities. And frequent crossovers between those realities is all part of the fun.

So what many fans have been wondering is: are the DC TV shows and DC films as totally separate as they seem? Or do they exist in parallel realities which would mean that, in theory, the TV Flash could meet the movie Flash?

According to Smith in his most recent Fatman On Batman podcast he discussed this very topic with DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns in a segment that was ultimately cut from the CW TV special about the burgeoning DC movie universe..

“We saw Ezra Miller, who’s playing movie Flash,” says Smith. “And we had shot for those that follow this sort of thing… you know, I’m a big f***ing Flash fan, huge Flash fan… why the f*** would you create a new Flash in the movies, with all apologies to Ezra Miller who’s a great actor, but like you’ve got a Flash audience and Grant [Gustin] is f***ing phenomenal and stuff.

“And we did a piece where we talked about – I don’t know how much I’m supposed to say because they cut it out – and I was kind of bummed they cut it out. But the idea of, ‘Hey man, DC is known for nothing if not a multiverse.’ So at which point I was like, ‘Could they f***ing crossover?’ And he was like, ‘Ahhhhh.’ So doors are being left open and stuff like that for… think about this, you can have Ezra Miller be The Flash and you could also have Grant be The Flash, because there’s a multiverse at work.”

Although there’s always the possibility that it was cut because some big wig at Warner Bros said, “Good good, don’t give them the slightest inkling of a chance that might ever be a thing… we’ll never hear the last of it.” [via ComicBook.com]
