With Rick Famuyiwa departing The Flash movie over creative differences, WB is currently searching for a new director. The Nerdist recently caught up with Ezra Miller to get his thoughts on the departure.

“[I feel] sad, a little sad," Ezra Miller said.  “Love Rick, but super grateful for all the work he has done. And trust the process, you know what I mean? I trust these processes. I think from a distance, observing the processes of a production of the film can seem–I dunno–interpersonal, or dramatic. But it’s actually just these are groups of people working to make a piece of art together. And you know, things work out. Things don’t work out. I definitely feel like ultimately things will work out. I’m extremely excited about The Flash. It’s funny. We’ve had sort of this tragic relay race of the passing of the baton of this project. But it feels like each person who has won the race has brought something really special to it, which I think will ultimately be in the work we create.”

As noted, Ezra Miller seems pretty optimistic that things will work out for The Flash. Miller even recently said he thinks The Flash movie will start filming soon.

With Rick Famuyiwa leaving The Flash, it has been said its current release date may be changed, and it's even rumored it might be taken by Aquaman.

The Flash has a March 16, 2018 release also starring Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Look for both Ezra Miller and Kiersey Clemons in Zack Snyder's Justice League, out November 17, 2017.
