Ezra Miller has shot a day of pickups for The Flash as the movie continues to test well during screenings.

TheWrap reports that Ezra Miller recently shot a day of pickups for his first cinematic solo outing as The Flash. The new scenes were shot on the Warner Bros. lot, with the trade mentioning that the movie has been testing “positively.” The report comes a month after Miller’s meeting with Warner Bros. executives following a number of troubling headlines, ranging from assaults to allegations of grooming minors, which have created a PR nightmare for the company behind The Flash.

Earlier this year, Warner Bros. Discovery was reportedly considering three different options for The Flash, including scrapping the $200 million-plus film or releasing it with limited-to-no press with Ezra Miller. WBD CEO David Zaslav recently praised the DC Films project and suggested that it wouldn’t suffer the same fate as the Leslie Grace-led Batgirl, which was canned and turned into a tax write-off.

Ezra Miller is seeking treatment for mental health issues

Last month, Ezra Miller released a statement adressing the troubling allegations made against them. “Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment. I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life,” Miller said at the time.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.

The Flash opens on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding Ezra Miller and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
