The Flash‘s long production history, which began in 2014 and will not come to a conclusion until next summer, is testament to the fact that it has been one of the most tortured comic book adaptations ever made. This is primarily thanks to its star, Ezra Miller.
A revolving door of talent has boarded the project since then, with as many as 45 writers contributing to the many iterations of the screenplay, the epidemic wreaking havoc on production and intended release schedule, and that’s before we even get into the fact that star Ezra Miller has repeatedly courted controversy.
Despite all of that, there is no getting around it: The Flash has to happen at some point. And when it does, expect more criticism for the DCEU veteran who has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons on a regular basis. Warner Bros. Discovery now finds themselves in an uncomfortable position having a $200 million superhero blockbuster in the can awaiting release, one that stars an actor that’s reportedly actively taunting the authorities looking for them after a 12 year-old girl and her mother were granted a protective order.
The studio has no other option but to ride out the storm until The Flash debuts in June 2023, according to Deadline, with Miller “not a part of those plans going forward in the future universe regardless if there are more allegations or not”. That means he’ll be done with the DCEU once the film is released.
Another source stated, “there’s no chance of winning for Warner Bros. in this,” implying that Miller is continuing to create more mayhem and mayhem for himself.
