>>106436821b..b...but DC is supposed to be dead!
>>106436821Ezra looks great
>>106436821I really hope it's not a adaptation of Flashpoint
Unless they announce that they are recasting Barry, I just don’t care
>>106436910Why would you lie? He looks terrible as the flash
>>106436945I really like this casting. I'm not terribly attached to the Barry comic look
>>106436913I really hope not. Flashpoint shouldn't even be a Flash movie but a Flash centric JL movie
It'll be delayed again.
>>106436986I hope it's not because of fucking Floptastic Creatures 3.
>>106436968See I don’t care about him being Blonde, but Ezra plays Barry as way to much of a spaz which is not how Barry is at all at most he could probably play a great adult Bart but that’s about it
>>106437014I would rather he be in that and run out his contract with those films than destroy the flash franchise
>It's gonna be Green Lantern all over again
>>106437041He played him as a spaz because that's how Snyder/Whedon wanted it, there's no reason that they can't change the characterization Same with the running style/form
>>106437052>>106437041Barry doen't have a personality anyway
>>106436821HOLY FUCKING BASED
>>106437118Probably Whedon. Snyder wanted to portray the Flash as a zen warrior, or whatever the fuck that means.
>>106436821>Flash looks as bad as he did beforeFuck, bros
>>106437164>the Flash as a zen warriorMax Mercury?
>>106437174Is that not just a photo from Justice League?
>>106437188It would be awesome if DC finally gave us an adaption of The Zen Master of Speed
>>106436821>Joker, Birds of Prey, The Suicide Squad, The Batman, Flash, The Kitchen all filmed or being filmed this yearGreat DC is rushing shit again just like when this dumpster fire started
>>106437164I'm guessing they either:>Saw the good reception of Civil War's Spider-Man and tried to replicate that. (WB definitely thinks Flash is DC's Spider-Man)>They tried to merge Barry, Wally and Bart into one.
>>106437191Snyder posted that last year as part of a group of images from "his version" of JL, it was an unused promotional shot I guess?
>>106437248Joker and Kitchen are on post-production and not related to the DCEU (the latter is Vertigo btw).
>>106437249Funny because they also are trying to turn Blue Beetle into a movie.
>>106436821I look forward to this. In order to distance itself from the TV show, it has to be as little as Geoff Johns as possible. Which is a good thing since they'll be forced to be original. I'm sick of everything being an adaptation of one of his normie friendly books.
>>106437269Stop replying to ladderbro
>>106437344>it has to be as little as Geoff JohnsGeoff Johns is Flash. He revived the fledgling franchise. WIthout him, there's nothing
>>106437269That's still way too many DC movies to put into production in one year2020 is probably going to have Blue Beetle, Black Adam, Batgirl, Plastic Man New Gods, Lobo, and some Joker type movie
>>106437249If they want a SM it should be Static
>>106437164Barry was already like that in the early JL footage. All Whedon probably did was adding more quips.
>>106437344>it has to be as little as Geoff Johns as possibleI'm sure the Johns stuff will be kept to a minimum now that he's no longer in charge
>>106436821>>106437257he is really a handsome guy
>>106436821God that suit looks like dogshit
>>106437464Hey now none of thatWe're focusing on Shazam right now
>>106437478why can't I lust over all DCEU actors at once Anon?they're all so handsome
>>106436821I’ll believe it when I see it. The Flash movie has been cursed for awhile. I expect the Trench movie to come out before this.
>>106437497>The Flash movie has been cursed for awhile.Justice League Dark Universe and Black Adam say hi
>>106437377>Who is Mark Waid?>What is Post-Crisis Flash?>Who are the JSA?
>>106437537>What is shit no one cares about?
>>106436929This, they will recast Affleck and most likely Cavill so just recast Ezra.
>>106436821Dude is that jojivlogs?
>>106437543You're not on /tv/, pal
>>106436929>>106437545Hell just recast everyone. I mean you got rid of Will Smith so obviously star power means absolutely nothing
>>106436821Hoping whoever designed Mamoa's Aquaman costume in his movie redoes Barry's costume.
>>106436821Good. For as much as I'm not the biggest fan of the DCEU, I'd rather they actually get projects up and running. >>106436913This. I hope it's more of a low-key movie with blue-collar criminals in the Rogues, but maybe some hints towards the Multiverse as well.
>>106437661>For as much as I'm not the biggest fan of the DCEU, I'd rather they actually get projects up and running.This the more money they lose the faster they go bankrupt
>>106437564Wally nostalgia baby mad
>>106437599Star power means nothing for a movie's success when a literally who like Momoa can lead Aquaman and it be so successful Clearly WB sees something in Miller if they haven't recast him already
>>106437673>This the more money they lose the faster they go bankrupt>Aquaman made literally a billion Yeah, okay. I'd rather WB turn things around and give me a DC cinematic universe that's actually good than just abandon the whole thing, because this might be literally the only chance they've got before the age of the superhero film is over.
>>106437691He probably sucks good dick seeing as he's also in the Fantastic Beasts series and given Tsujihara's current scandal
>>106437727It will never be over. They still make westerns and DC is getting experimental with things like The Trench and Joker so as long as there's variety in genre Superhero movies can last forever
>>106437727Stop replying to ladderbro. Also, Superhero movies will never die. At most, they will go back to X-Men levels.
>>106437734>He probably sucks good dick he's literally, not figuratively, a homosexual
>>106437799No, he's what they call in the gay community gaybait.
>>106437757>>106437779I would legitimately be okay with that. I hate people who keep on crying about how they're sick of superheroes already but I could see how people could potentially get sick of them eventually. But I'd rather we continue to get them in the future, just maybe not to the same degree and with more experimentation with it. Stuff like Brightburn and the like.
>>106437689Joke's on you, I don't even like the character.
>>106437691>Clearly WB sees something in Miller if they haven't recast him alreadyThey believe he's the next big thing and are trying to push him.Worked for Momoa, didn't work so great for Gadot, I doubt it'll work for Miller. Poor Ray Fisher never got his.
>>106437805You don't need a killer gaydar to know that fag in the OP is not straight.
>>106437806I'm just tired of fucking continuity, just as with mainstream comics. The biggest advantage movies had, to me, was that I didn't really need to know jack shit about anything, I could just go and watch the movie. That's gone now and you get shit like Captain Marvel existing and succeeding thanks to continuity and its links to other successful movies instead of doing it on its own merits.
>>106437842>Poor Ray Fisher never got his.What's sad is that he actually played the part really damn well. Even though JL wasn't that good, he wasn't bad at all actually. He really should've been cast as MM instead. Or if they had to cast him as a black guy, Black Lightning or something. But in any case, we're not going to see a Cyborg solo. I think people would've been more willing to see a MM solo at least.
>>106437842>didn't work so great for Gadot???
I hate everything about what I'm look at right now. Ezra Miller looks like a fucking dope and that suit is an eyesore that fundamentally misunderstands Flash's costume.
>>106437888Man I'm not a fan of Last Jedi in the slightest, but trying to talk shit to Frank Oz is pretty fuckin dumb.
>>106436821They should make it like Spiderverse and have multiple Flash’s and alternate universes/timelines
>>106437879I actually really fucking like the continuity. I get the appeal of solo movies but I like that we're actually getting movies that understand the appeal of an interconnected superhero universe much like the comics. I never thought I'd get something like that as a kid but here we are now, for better or worse. >>106437913They could very well pull an Aquaman and just give him a way more comics accurate suit in his solo movie.
>>106437799>>106437805>>106437854Curious to see how they will play this when marketing this film to be honest. I suspect them to pretend the last few year's of Ezra's escapades never happened and to reinvent him as more masculine to appeal to a larger audience.
>>106437599Will Smith is a dying brand name.
didn't work so great for Gadot
>>106437962Nah, they'll double down on it and emphasize how important and empowering it is to have a "queer" actor headlining a blockbuster superhero movie.DCEU Barry is not the kind of character that'll pull in female viewers based on his rugged manliness, even if Miller was straight.
>>106438011ThisEzra is tied with Chalamet as twink supreme in Hollywood right now
>>106438011This they might even make his Barry gaywith a sugar daddy played by that one guy from Triple Frontier
>>106437962wait what escapades? all I know about Miller is that he has ugly feet and is a hippie
>>106438047I'm down for Eddie Thawne as his love interest
>>106438069https://www.playboy.com/read/ezra-miller-fantastic-beasts-interviewStart there Anon
>>106437842>>106437998>didn't work so great for GadotIsn't she in Death on the Nile?
>>106438188That's part of the post-Wonder Woman 1984 second push.
>>106437932Continuity is nothing but a celebration of mediocrity.
>>106436821He was the worst part of JL for me, the only scene I liked him in was the race and that was more because of Caville than him
>>106438147what the fuck is this shit??
>>106438329ummmm sweetie it's social progress, don't be a bigot or anything, men can wear women's clothes too
>>106437691Momoa didn't have name recognition but he did have face recognition from GoT. Normies loved Drogo.
>Flash movie may come before a Batman movie Cue Batfags bitching about that, as if they don't have 11 other movies + a shit ton of games and shows to bide their time
>>106437932They could also recast him.
>>106438329Pretentious homo with shitty feet.
>>106436844the fact that aquaman was a quip fest and shazam is going to be the same just mean that the old dcu is dead, say hello to your new mcu tho...
>>106438576Fuck off Ladderbro, he fixed his feet, those pics are from years ago
>>106438598The last thing I wanted was a serious Shazam movie so that doesn't bother me
>>106438598Actually we haven't seen the new DS C yetAquaman and Shazam are Johns and Berg's DC which wa a thing for about 3 months. Joker and Birds of Prey are the "new DC"
>>106438641I wanted a charming Shazam movie with innocent wonder and noble heroics against oddball villains.Apparently what I am getting is *sip* "Dude, where's my magic word?" who fights Lex Luthor with his own Evil Shazam powers.
>>106438691>against oddball villains.Next time
>>106438641>We want the pg deapool audience
>>106438716Waited through 7 movies for Brainiac. Seven!Luthor, Zod and Luthor, El Luthorez, Luthor with Evil Superman, Luthor, Zod, and Luthor with undead Zod.Now we get Shazam and they've turned amazing Savana into a square Luthor with Zod powers. All I wanted was an evil fucking Android/AI from space. Audiences would buy into that. Now I'm supposed to believe WB will use a talking caterpillar for anything other than an Easter Egg?
Give it up. Barry is shit and Wally is getting a live action adaptation from a good actor.
>>106436821jesus fucking dc. they didn't even start filming yet
>>106438792>a good actor>in a DC movieYou DKeks get more delusional by the day
I love it
>>106436913>>106436970It's not Flashpoint.It's pre-Flashpoint. Sets up Thawne and the mechanics of the Speed Force, time travel and the Multiverse and ends on a huge lead-in.Overall the script is pretty good.Jay Garrick is in it.
>>106438833>MovieNo, show you faggot.>>106438799>Barry movie has been delayed by 100 years>Says anyone else is seething
>>106438876>That last spoilerWell now I'm interested
>>106438906Oh right that streaming service no one uses
>>106438792God I hope.
>>106438329I think they call it a face warmer
>>106438929Yeah which somehow keeps managing to get new shows and seasons for existing ones.
>>106438329Hopefully the next Flash costume also accentuates one of Ezra's best assets.
>>106438752>Luthor, Zod and Luthor, El Luthorez, Luthor with Evil Superman, Luthor, Zod, and Luthor with undead Zod.I hope if we ever got MoS2, they finally give us a Superman villain (or villains) who aren't Lex or Zod. Give me Brainiac, Bizarro, or Mr. Mxyzptlk. Of course, they could also recast Luthor and give him sort of a Black Manta role as well.
fuck you all
>>106438967And what amazing shows they are
>>106439067Kill yourself retard, that picture is from EIGHT YEARS AGOHis feet are fine now
>>106439073But I thought you said no one was using it
>>106437150>Everyone's wearing comfortable clothes>Not Snyder. He's gonna be half cocktail party, half working manStill sad for him, though. That shit with his daughter was horrible.
>>106439078They're filthy is what they areFilthy and dirty
>>106439163They're shooting on a rooftop in that photoshoot and he has no socks on, of course his soles are going to get dirty.
>>106438329>>106438994>>106439189He’s really fucking hot
>>106439189I want off this planet.
>>106438549To be honest, I haven't seen any Batfags complaining about Aquaman and Shazam getting their solo movies before Batman gets a new one, I don't see why they'd complain about this one.I've seen countless of Superfags bitching about no MoS 2 though.
>>106439355Man of taste detected
>>106438752You didn't want any of those things, you just want to bitch. The Shazam movie is being described even by some of the most bitter critics as "charming", that exact word you used. But you decide to get hung up on whatever you don't like because that's exactly what you want.
>>106439401nuoh my god
>>106439431Alright one moreI want to be suffocated by his thighs
>>106438833>MovieNo you stupid shit, on TV.
>>106439544What's that guy doing with his hand in his pocket
>>106439544Really though, you must have such a specific kind of fetish to find men in skirts or ladies clothes attractive.
>>106439696Only attractive men with nice butts
>>106439078>those toes >Finekek
>>106439728I didn't they were particularly nice feet, just nothing physically wrong with them like fungus or some shit. Who cares if you have ugly feet anyway?
>>106436821I’ll take it over that dumb Fantastic Beasts movies.
>>106439696Where do you think we are ?
>>106436910He does but they need to redesign that outfit, especially now that The Hack is History and since Batfleck is gone, it can be something Barry actually develops, versus supposedly getting it from Bruce the way some idiots were suggesting.>>106436945>>106437041Agreed with the people who are complaining about this - he was badly written for his brief scene in BvS, which again was the fault of The Hack and Goyer, and he was also badly written when they decide to try to make him the comic relief in JL (which likely can be set on the feet of Zach in part, since that was a reflexive reaction to the flaws in BvS and MoS, but mostly on Josh). He's an excellent actor and very personable on his own, there's no reason to recast him at all.
>>106437379Batgirl doesn't even have a director or a script, neither does Lobo and also The Joker (Leto is about to start a different film and will have other conflicts), New Gods does not have a script, and Plastic Man is just a fantasy as is Jaime
>>106439078Thanks, this actually makes me feel a lot better about liking him. I'm glad he fixed them.
>>106438549>Flash movie may come before a Batman movieNope
>>106436821>PRODUCTION STARTWhat the fuck, they still haven't actually started it? I was wondering what the fuck was going on DC's other Justice League hero movies recently too. I guess they were waiting to see if Aquaman would do well before greenlighting any continuation of that universe.
>>106436821hey just out of curiosity, does anyone actually like this version of the flash?
>>106442974Did you even read this thread? Plenty of people replied that they’re looking forward to it.Just because they made Barry a spazz in JL doesn’t mean they can’t change the characterization for this film. Ezra Miller is a great actor.
I don't like this Flash
Did I miss something or when did they get an actual director for this?
>>106443325Like 2017 maybe early 2018
>>106443325You missed a lot
>>106442949Fantstic Beast has been holding up production. But since Fantastic Beast 2 flopped and was shit abd Aquaman made billion, the 3rd one was delayed and Flash got priority.
>>106439401>>106439544I wanna eat his asshole desu
I'd fuck Ezra Miller.Pic related.
>>106443725You should be ashamed of yourself
>>106437122i'll fucking cut you nigger
>>106443742>>106443786More? For some reason him as a slut is doing it for me.
>>106443786In that first pic his knees are already up to his chest, imagine just ripping a hole in the onesie in the correct spot and fucking him like that.
FlashpointFlash reboots the universe. New batman, no BvS, no JL, cyborg looks less retarded
>>106444160hopefully erza reboots himself, the guy was miscast worse than lex facebook
>>106436929Needs...and redesigning the suit...
So has he learned how to actually run yet?
>>106444318You realize that running style was requested by Snyder right? All of the running sequences were shot on a hybrid treadmill/trampoline which is why they look so floaty and dumb. He’s not unable to run or something.
>>106444784>running style was requested by SnyderIt was Whedon, that's clearly cuckold/gay style
>>106444784Yeah.The question still remains: Will the director want to recreate the style, or will he be allowed to run in non-retard fashion, or in other words: >>106444318
>>106444808It's a mixture of Snyder having the idea of frictionless movement and Ezra being a bit effeminate in his run. Reshoots and effects not being finished while supervised by Whedon who didn't give a shit gave it the last push to looking retarded. If you compare the select running scenes from the earlier trailers to later shots you can clearly see the difference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cxixDgHUYw
>>106437962Women like fags like him for some reason, if anything the movie will do good in that area.
>>106436821What are all those wires for, again?
>>106445265Learning not to kill by killing and feeling bdong.
I don't like that they made him autistic
>>106443246>PlentyIt's one very obsessed guy samefagging.
>>106436821God he is quite handsome
>>106445758>60 posters>one guy samefaggingHere’s your (You) Ladderbro
>>106445998>60 poster>166 repliesMakes you think.
>>106446141That’s only like 2-3 posts per person, and throughout this thread there’s multiple conversations between people
>>106444318I hope we get super speed effects like Faora's in MoS rather than whatever was going on in JL. That movie still has my favorite representation of super speed in a movie.
>>106446141How do yo even know?
>>106448144How new are you? Bottom right corner, anon
>>106447908Yes but to some idiots here, EVERYTHING has to be a conspiracy. Very few of these threads ever have a wide variety of people talking in them.
>>106450205Some people have such a hate boner for Ezra that they’re convinced it’s impossible for more than one person to like him
>>106437164i remember him doing this ninja stance in justice league
>>106443742what website is this?
>>106436821Wasn't too hot on him in JL but since they're soft rebooting everything anyway, eh why not. Still stuck with Snyder's atypical casting though.
>>106436910he looks like fucboihis codpiece is shaped like an arrow
The only way this turns out good is if they completely ignore everything about Justice League. The characterization, the costume, the fact that Batman is The Flash's mentor, etc.Also, don't let Geoff Johns get too close to this project, either, or else it will follow his pet version of Barry to the T. Do something closer to how earlier writers wrote him, before the whole "I MUST FIND THE YELLOW STREAK THAT REALLY KILLED MY MOM" bullshit.
>>106450855Looks like The Data Lounge
Name a Flash villain that can carry a movie! You can't!
>>106439189there is no way this dude is straightam i going to wake up 5 years from now and hear about how this guy got rapòed by a bunch of producers to get acting gigs? because he looks like the kind of dude that producers would want to fuck in exchange for gigs.
>>106452210LOL! Moviefags will just see him as a Diet Mr. Freeze. And he's not interesting without his entire gang to do capers with. Name a Flash villain that can carry a mobir! You can't!
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/flash-shocker-ezra-miller-writing-script-bid-star-1194937>Miller is taking a stab at writing the script for the Warner Bros. project, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. He has teamed up with Grant Morrison, the acclaimed comics author, to pen a draft that could determine if he stays on as star, playing crimefighter Barry Allen.
>>106452392This can only result on gay sex.
>>106452392Oh man this movie gonna be fucking weird
>>106452392I would love a gay Flash
>>106452162Grodd. Wild brutal power with mind of evil genius, telepatic powers and army of intellectual brutes like himself. He can destroy your body with his animal might. He can destroy your mind with his alien/hyper-evolved/(choose your favorite version) brain. He can be very dangerous, it's not just "Haha talking monkey!" God, i hate normies. But it already was on CW and it was good, so i choose the Rogues gang versus Flash. Ordinary human beings without powers, just gadgets and skill versus the superhuman. It's like many Luthors vs Superman, like evil Batmans vs anybody who is not Batman.
>>106452302Marvel did movies with Kaecilius and Oldrich Killian as main villains. Just saying.
>>106452392>The development has bubbled up from a clash of creative visions. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who have been on board the project since January 2018, have a light-hearted approach to the material (and even hail from that sort of background, with credits like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Game Night). And, as sources note, that is the general track favored by Warners, which scored a billion-dollar hit with Aquaman by going the fun spectacle route and is seeing strong buzz on Shazam!, which is wearing its “superheroics is fun” on its sleeve .>Miller is said to want a darker take on the material.>The two sides have been working on compromises since last year but Miller took the initiative to tackle the story himself. He partnered with Morrison, with Warners hiring the two to script their take. It is a rare move for an actor to be so invested in a superhero project that they switch hats, but Miller sees himself as deeply committed to the character.Holy shit, for a guy who doesn't like Ezra as Flash but likes Morrison, this might be the worst.
>>106452620Light hearted is the right way to go with The Flash
>>106452638Morrison would know that. Ezra might still be high on that Snyder stuff though.
>>106452392>>106452620>Miller is said to want a darker take on the material.Does this guy knows that WB is choosing lighthearted for a reason, right? He surely must know that darker DC failed, or is he trying to follow Zack steps with the movies? Because if so he will get a bad result.
>>106452162A fight between Barry and Zoom would be cool in live action https://youtu.be/rswJRHLZqv8
>>106452162>>106452302Morrison could come up with great, dark evil Grod ideas.
>>106452687Morrison loves to make dark stories.
>>106452687They can just slightly tone it down.
>>106452392You really can't get better news than that.Hopefully even though Miller wants a darker tone, they still make the movie colorful, comic booky, and even fun. I hope they realize that just because something is dark, it doesn't necessarily mean realistic and gritty underneath a grey filter. Waid and Johns' runs both had plenty of dark shit despite being rather vibrant and colorful.
>>106452392>The script could be submitted to the studio as early as next week.>But there could be a lot riding on it. If Warners chooses against Miller's take on the hero, the actor could part ways with the project. Additionally, and fittingly for a hero who races to beat the clock, there is a countdown scenario here as well: according to one insider, Miller’s holding deal on Flash expires May.Bros....are you Team Ezrason or Team Daleystein?
>>106452780event though I hate Ezra, Morrison any day of the week just for the chance of a little bit of creativity in these movies... also i'm pretty sure Flash is his favourite DC character so it's guaranteed he'll have some crazy ideas
>>106452720Yes, but even if you look at Multiversity, or Final Crisis, at their absolute darkest, the darkest the Flash ever went was self-sacrifice. Hell, in FC, Barry came back from the Speed Force when everything else was going wrong and dark.
holy shit...I just realized...Ezra eluded this during this interview from November: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxD7cqDrlGc>The reason why we are late, and this is the honest to God truth...We’re all—and I include myself in this>and I include myself in thisyou cheeky bitch.
>>106452231He's "queer", which is a fancy way of saying bisexual.
>Ezra and GMoz writing the scriptIs...is this hope?
>>106452972>Two guys that have never written a successful script in their lives>Doing a rush job while they're at itIt'll be a disaster.
>>106452994How do you know it's rushed? This could have been in the works for months and they're only just revealing it now.
>>106452994>Doing a rush job while they're at itThey're delivering it next week, it's implied they were the reason the film was on a loop.
>>106452780>tfw DC lets that faggots contract expire
The plot thickens
>>106453195Flash was actually one of the better received parts of JL from the *general public*. Which is why he hasn't been recast yet or why Warner is giving Miller this chance I guess.
Now that i think about it who are the new Batman and Superman since Cavill and Afflek are out? Also Joker for that matter.
>>106453241>Flash was actually one of the better received parts of JL from the *general public*Not really.
>>106453352I think he means that no one gave a shit about him.Which is sufficient to be one of the better received parts.
>>106453379Can't you say that about the whole movie though?
>>106453350Really, I just want a Luthor recasting. Cavill could stay or leave. But Luthor NEEDS to be recast.
>>106452780Morrison Miller has most potential here. I believe it could strike a good balance between humorous and poignant, the current draft must be just safe and quippy.
>>106452994>>106453010It's not that rushed, Grant posted this picture in September 2018 and it was just some dumb concert selfie. So even going by just September that's at least 6 months that the script would have been in the works for.
>>106453543I'm fine with that and I doubt Jessie cares or that his contract is going to last much past this year
>>106453352This has been repeatedly reported in industry papers, all that matters is that Warners believes it, and they do. https://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/07/justice-league-flash-breakout-flashpoint-director-coming-soon/
>>106453922It's sad that we know this is going to end in a recast and a Homecoming clone, Morrison might be good but he writes unfilmable shit.
>>106452771They can do the Raimi-darkness here. You know, typical for capebooks absurdity and phantasmagoria and light-hearted heroic spirit with serious moments and drama when it really needs to be. Like Doom Patrol Show, it's not afraid to be silly, but the situations in it are really dark.
Ezra is getting recast. Its over
>>106456113No, it's happening
>>106456137Nah "creative differences" strikes again
>>106454559Teaming up with someone with more awareness of moviemaking could help with that. Personally I'd prefer almost anything to watching 2 hours of focus on the spastic twerp they made him in the previous movie.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxD7cqDrlGcEzra seems dedicated to getting the tone right, it doesn't seem like he's convinced it's some "dark" universe based on what he's said. I guess whatever they're looking at is darker in comparison to the quip-fest that was Barry in JL.
