The WB Studios are going on with The Flash project even after tons of controversies that are revolving around its’ lead actor Ezra Miller and it seems like they’ll likely release it next year ignoring the fact that Miller has been around various allegations from keeping people hostage to second-degree assault. The 29-year-old star, who goes by the pronoun they/them, made their first big-screen appearance in Antonio Campos’ dark, directorial debut at Afterschool. They got wider recognition with the 2011 breakout movie, We Need To Talk About Kevin, their 2016’s role of Credence in Fantastic Beasts, and The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While the franchise has been axing a few DC films, including the much-expected Batgirl, they are keeping The Flash which is now getting more into the media especially because of the actor with fans urging WB Studios to scrap the movie and not looking at the production cost.
WB Studios Coming Up With Scenario For Ezra Miller’s The Flash
According to the sources reported to The Hollywood Reporter, the franchise is planning to move on with the big-budget project as the 29-year-old actor’s mother has accompanied them while they were a part of regular “scheduled additional photography over the summer.” Their mother will seek professional help for her son after returning home. According to that, the WB Studios are considering three scenarios to release their big-budget movie. The first one would be, that the actor would “give an interview at some point explaining their erratic behavior over the past few years,” as per the outlet.
The second scenario would be exempting the actor in the marketing and publicity of the movie which would mean that he would still be a part of the movie in the above-mentioned scenarios. The third one would be taken when the situation gets ‘bad to worse’ as the big-budget movie was completed with a budget of $200 million, so they won’t be able to reshoot it however they’ll kill the movie.
Internet Urging The Warner Bros to Scrap The Flash Instead of Letting Ezra Miller Be in The Movie
While Warner Bros. Discovery chief Zaslav last week stated that the studio is affirmed to release the theatrical part for the $200 million movie, adding that he has already watched the initial screening of the movie with the studio satisfied with the outcome. Internet is urging the franchise to reconsider its decision and remove the project starring Miller as he has already been involved in many controversies.

If he didn't belong the LGBTQ community, he would've been cancelled a long time ago.
