Art-house star Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) related to rookie superhero Barry Allen the moment he walked on the Justice League set to play the Flash.

“He’s this really endearing, altruistic nerd,” Miller says. “He’s the 13-year-old Metallica fan, and Metallica says, ‘We lost our drummer in a freak accident. We need you to play drums, bro!’ I don’t even have drumsticks!” Though the film’s plot is a guarded secret, the Flash will join DC’s most powerful heroes to fight a cosmic threat, hopefully with Wonder Woman on lead guitar and Batman on bass.

Get a new look at Flash alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in the photo below.
