Collider caught up with Ezra Miller, and was asked what it’s like having DC’s Geoff Johns around. Johns was put in charge of DC Films along with producer Jon Berg earlier this year after the backlash that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received. Miller said that he’s helping keep everyone in check.
“Yes, he’s a good guy to have around,” Miller said. “He keeps us full of information and he keeps us from making ignorant mistakes that would upset the fans across the world because you pretty much can’t get someone with a deeper knowledge of this universe than Geoff Johns.”
Miller also opened up about The Flash needing to find a new director, after Rick Famuyiwa exited the project last week.
“These processes are complicated, and I think it can—from afar—appear to be, as you say, something interpersonal or dramatic. That is rarely the case. These are groups of people taking the development of projects extremely seriously, and the teams are changing all the time. There’s often a lot of flux in who the team of the production of a film is before that production starts, and in this case, you hear about it, because it’s a critical figure—the directors that have been coming on and leaving. For me, it’s sort of a tragic relay race, and we’ve had a couple really incredible people carry this baton, and their marks are left on that baton, and the work that they’ve given to the project will certainly be represented in whatever the final product comes to be.”
