Flash Actor Ezra Miller on 'Suicide Squad' Reviews: "Negative Critiques Motivate Us"
Get knocked down three times by critics, get up, brush the dust off and try to be better the next time out. That seems to be a mantra for Warner Bros.' DC films moving forward, according to Flash actor Ezra Miller.
“You needn’t look any further than the Suicide Squad director and cast response to the negative reviews to feel how negative critiques motivate us,” Miller told MTV News. "Ultimately, we can’t base anything on [the critical response]. As artists, we aim to please absolutely everybody with our work, but we also know that we have to keep expressing ourselves as best as we can express ourselves."
The actor had a small cameo as the Flash in Suicide Squad and said the hater toward Squad is like the T.I. song, "Motivation." Despite poor reviews, the film opened big last weekend, though it saw a large drop on Saturday, attributed to poor word of mouth.
Miller will next appear as the Flash in Justice League, set for Nov. 17, 2017.
