He’s not happy with the direction his superhero flick is going.

Justice League star Ezra Miller is reportedly at work on a new screenplay for The Flash, his upcoming solo DC comics film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 26-year-old actor is collaborating with legendary comic book writer Grant Morrison, 59, on the new script, which has a significantly darker tone than the film’s original screenplay.

The We Need To Talk About Kevin star originally clashed with the film’s directors, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, over its light-hearted and humor-filled screenplay.

Daley, who’s best known to the public as an actor, played Sam Weir on Freaks And Geeks and Lance Sweets on Bones.

Later, he transitioned into writing and directing, where he showed off a talent for comedy and light comic book fare with Goldstein, his longtime co-writer and co-director.

The two have collaborated multiple times, mostly famously in directing 2018’s Game Night and writing 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In an unusual development, The Flash’s studio, Warner Brothers, is paying Ezra and Morrison for their new draft, either suggesting they have confidence in their combined talents, or just that they want to humor a valuable star.

Ezra first took on the role in 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and fleshed it out further in 2017’s Justice League. 

Warner Brothers may welcome his further participation in order to keep part of their DC universe in place, especially following Ben Affleck’s exit as Batman after only two films.

The Fantastic Beasts star is expected to turn in his screenplay as early as next week, at which point he might depart the project if Warner isn’t interested in departing from the formula that helped make their last DC film, Aquaman, a runaway hit.

Even if he agrees to stay, the studio only has until May to keep him attached to the project before he’s free to sign up for other work.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower star is also part of the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts, also at Warner. He’s expected to be part of the third film in the series later this year.
