Things could be looking up for The Flash as star Ezra Miller continues working to make amends for their recent erratic behavior.
Miller has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons this year, becoming embroiled in controversies and numerous run-ins with the law. Their actions cast doubt on the future of The Flash with many calling for Warner Bros. to either scrap the film or recast Miller as the lead.
Recently, Ezra Miller publicly apologized for their actions, saying they were now receiving treatment for “complex mental health issues.” The latest update suggests Miller has started mending some bridges at Warner Bros. Discovery.
Ezra Miller Meets With DC Heads
Ezra Miller recently attending a meeting with Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, the heads of Warner Bros. Pictures Group who currently oversee all DC projects at the studio.
The latest update, shared by Entertainment Weekly, reveals that Ezra Miller and their agent Scott Metzger had a “very positive meeting” with De Luca and Abdy. This may boost hope for The Flash being released as originally planned, though it is likely Miller will not be heavily involved with press for the film.
With several DC projects, such as Batgirl, recently facing cancellation at Warner Bros. Discovery, there was surprise from many fans that plans to release The Flash were not being reconsidered. Positive test screenings for the film reportedly motivated the decision to push ahead with its release.
Should Ezra Miller’s recovery continue in a positive direction, The Flash may be able to enjoy a release unencumbered by the controversies that have surrounded Miller. Whether or not the actor’s apologies to Warner Bros. Discovery will be enough to see them brought back as the Flash in future DC projects remains to be seen.
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 is currently set for release on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Ezra Miller film, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
