Ezra Miller recently visited Warner Bros. to discuss the fate of The Flash with leadership at the studio.
Last week, Ezra Miller finally came out to address their recent trouble with the law and revealed they would seek treatment for “complex mental health issues.” Prior to Miller breaking their silence on the matter, Warner Bros. was reportedly considering three options for The Flash, which included scrapping the film entirely.
Warner Bros. is on pace to release The Flash, especially after new company CEO David Zaslav praised the film a few weeks ago. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Ezra Miller, and their agent Scott Metzger met with studio heads Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy on Wednesday. The meeting involved a discussion about the fate of The Flash film and Miller apologizing for their troubled behavior.
Ezra Miller was reportedly willing to seek mental health treatment once they learned that scrapping the $250 million film was on the table. The 29-year-old actor was allegedly not bothered by the bad press but was looking to mend their relationship with the studio because “they care about The Flash. It’s one of their favorite characters to play.”
DC’s Best Film Yet?
Composer Benjamin Wallfisch is set to lead a scoring session in London next week with visual effects work still underway, which could wrap up before the end of the year. The report also notes Warner Bros. is thrilled with the film since it has received the studio’s highest test scores since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.
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.
