Tonight the Flash of two worlds became a reality, as Ezra Miller crossed over from the film world to the TV world. Miller’s Barry Allen somehow crossed over from his earth to meet Grant Gustin, the Barry Allen of Earth-1. This moment connected the current DC movie universe with the Arrowverse. The scene was both delightful and hilarious, as Barry and Barry met across the multiverse.
While two DC movie actors have cameoed on the Arrowverse before (Robert Wuhl as Alexander Knox from Batman ’89 and Brandon Routh as Clark Kent from Superman Returns
), this is the first time the current DC movies have crossed over with the Arrowverse.
This marks a significant turning point in the connectivity of the DC/Warner Bros. properties. Does this mean these universes will merge at some point? That’s hard to say. At the time of this article, Crisis on Infinite Earths has not concluded, so we don’t know the full meaning of Miller’s cameo. For now, let’s look at how Twitter reacted to the milestone moment.
Crisis on Infinite Earths: Every Cameo in the Crossover
Flash, Meet the Flash
First of all, we have to address this tweet from Marc Guggenheim, the co-creator of the Arrowverse and the executive producer of Crisis on Infinite Earths:
@Mguggenheim shares that the cost of getting Ezra Miller would roughly be the price of four kidneys. He’s kidding, of course. Or is he?
@Noradominick is shocked that Grant and Ezra got to be in a scene together, face to face, after all these years.
@Sophiaspirelli points out the humor in Ezra appearing on The Flash before getting his own standalone movie off the ground. Don’t worry Ezra, it’s going to happen!
@Bamsmackpow commemorates this special moment with a well-timed Paul Rudd meme.
@Geeksofcolor is stoked to see Ezra appear during Crisis on Infinite Earths.
@the_snickman reminds fans that Ezra also appeared as The Flash during a Suicide Squad cameo.
@1raith did not expect Ezra to show up during this episode. The gif expression on Keegan-Michael Key’s face is perfect.
A well-placed Patrick from Sponge Bob gif perfectly sums up @Betovstheworld’s feelings about Ezra’s cameo.
@Thenicecast_ points out Ezra’s Cyborg/Victor Stone name drop! Cyborg lives.
Lastly, @MissAusten shares the best superhero twinning gif of all time: Spider-Man meeting Spider-Man from the Spider-Man cartoon. Yes, there are two of them!
