It has been announced that openly queer and alarmingly handsome actor Ezra Miller has been cast as The Flash.

Warner Brothers will be releasing a number of DC Comics inspired films over the next five years, including a Wonder Woman adaptation starring Gal Gadot in 2017.

Miller will first don the spandex in 2017 as part of ‘Justice League Part One’ in 2017 and ‘The Flash’ in 2018. This makes Miller the first openly queer actor to be cast as a major superhero.

Miller publicly came out as queer in an interview with OUT magazine in 2012. He is known for playing the highly disturbed son of Tilda Swinton’s Eva in ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’, and gay character Patrick in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’.

Jena Malone is rumoured to be playing a female incarnation of Batman’s sidekick, Robin in the upcoming ‘Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice’.

We’re hoping Miller’s casting will herald a tide of other awesome LGBT actors as superheroes: Raven-Symone as Captain Marvel, Ellen Page as Hawkgirl, Wentworth Miller as Aquaman, or maybe DC’s new incarnation of Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, who is a lesbian, will eventually get her own franchise.
