Grant Gustin, star of CW's The Flash, confirmed on Twitter that he has no problems with Ezra Miller's version of his character. Gustin's statement comes in response to various media reporting that he was bitter about being passed over for the Justice League role that he made popular on The CW.
During a special for the upcoming slew of DC films that aired on The CW earlier this week, Miller — who will play the cinematic version of the Flash — was invited to take part instead of Gustin. This led to fans of Gustin tweeting their support for the actor and insisting that he should have been cast in the films instead of Miller.
In his statement, Gustin declared that he had no qualms with Miller playing the Flash, and asked everyone to, "chill and be nice."
Gustin added that he fully supported Miller in the role. While he would have enjoyed playing Flash in the movies, he wrote he was more than happy with the role he had now.
