Batman v Superman‘s Flash, Ezra Miller, Taking Over ALL the Warner Bros. Franchises; In Talks For Fantastic Beasts
It seems that being a part of the DC Cinematic Universe isn’t enough for Ezra Miller. Miller, who will be making his debut as The Flash in Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is now in talks for a role in another big franchise: the world of Harry Potter.
Miller is currently in talks for the role of Kredan in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Katherine Waterston as Tina. The film, of course, is adapted from the J.K. Rowling book of the same name, and she’s adapted it into the screenplay. David Yates, already a long-time participant in the Harry Potter franchise, is on board to direct.
There’s no official word from Warner Bros. on this particular bit of casting news, nor does there appear to be any major movement on the casting of the four American children that are part of the main cast. However, there is talk that Alison Sudol is Yates’ choice for the role of Queenie, Tina’s younger sister, and that Josh Gad and Michael Cera are both being considered for the role of Scamander’s fierce rival, Jacob, and they’ll be meeting with Warner Bros. executives next week.
So, how do you think the cast of Fantastic Beasts is shaping up so far, and whom would you cast in any of these roles that are still up for grabs?
