Behind the Scenes
Zylka's first mention that he was involved with the movie was his tweet on Twitter. He did not know which character he would be playing, however, some time in November, 2011, he was revealed to be playing Flash Thompson. In an interview in that same month, Zylka was asked what it was like to play his character. He answered, "You just try to focus. As an artist, or as an actor, you just try to focus and stay in that world and block it all out."
He also stated that he enjoyed working with Marc Webb, the director of the reboot, even complimenting him, saying he was calm and comforting.
