Speaking to New York Daily News, the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” director explained why the star of The CW series was never in the running to reprise his role on the big screen as the speedster superhero.

“I just don’t think it was a good fit,” he said. “I’m very strict with this universe, and I just don’t see a version where … that (tone is) not our world. Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multi-verse (idea), so it’s just not a thing that’s possible.”

Recently, Gustin admitted that he would have loved to play the Flash in films, but supports the decision to cast Miller. “I’ve never met the guy, but I think he is a fantastic and interesting actor,” the actor said in January.

In the upcoming "Justice League," Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will unite to battle evil.
