'The Flash' Movie Still Set For Release Despite Ezra Miller's Controversies

Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav recently teased the film's upcoming release, in spite of Miller's arrests and various allegations against the star.

Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly still going ahead with the upcoming superhero movie “The Flash,” despite multiple controversies involving lead actor Ezra Miller.

Miller, who was arrested earlier this year in separate incidents for assault and disorderly conduct, has more recently been accused of grooming minors, as detailed in an investigation by Insider.

The actor has also faced accusations of other troubling behavior, including harassment, and allegations that they housed a woman and her children in “unsafe” conditions at a Vermont farm, as reported by Rolling Stone. In 2020, video emerged that appeared to show Miller choking a woman at a bar in Iceland.

Nevertheless, Warner Bros. remains “excited” about Miller’s upcoming film, Variety recently reported.

“We have seen ‘The Flash,’ ‘Black Adam’ and ‘Shazam 2,’” said Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav during an earnings call on Thursday. “We are very excited about them. We’ve seen them. We think they are terrific, and we think we can make them even better.”

Notably, it was also reported last week that Warner Bros. Discovery had canceled its “Batgirl” movie, which had finished shooting and was slated to be released on HBO Max. “Batgirl” was to star Leslie Grace ― who, unlike Miller, has not been embroiled in multiple scandals ― in the title role.

“The Flash” is set for a June 2023 release.
