The Flash actor denies Twitter bashing fellow DC Comics star

Both Flash actors are totally okay with one another

Grant Gustin, star of CW's The Flashconfirmed 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.

Gustin's full statement can be read below.

Those interested in seeing how Miller's Flash will differ from Gustin's can do so on March 25, when Miller makes his first appearance as the superhero in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Miller will also star in Justice League: Part 1 alongside Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill and more on Nov. 17, 2017, before getting his own standalone movie in 2018.
