Who knew that Ezra Miller was a low key anime fan? The actor who will portray Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash, in Warner Bros. Justice League this November got into the San Diego Comic-Con spirit by cosplaying as Edward Elric, the titular character from Hiromu Arakawa’s mega-popular anime and manga series Fullmetal Alchemist.

At 5’11”, Miller has a full foot on his cosplay counterpart. (At the outset of the series, Elric is supposed to be approximately 4’11”.) Honestly, the only thing missing is Ben Affleck in a giant suit of armor as Alphonse Elric. Or Gal Gadot as Lust. Or Jason Momoa as Alexander Louis Armstrong. I mean, just look at this GIF and tell me Jason Momoa wouldn’t be perfect.
But this cosplay can’t help but make us wonder, would Miller ever play Elric in an American adaptation of the hit anime and manga series? Probably not because anime adaptations are still a risky proposition in the US market. But considering that Warner Bros. is releasing a live action feature film adaptation of the series in Japan, anything can happen.
