The future regarding The Flash is uncertain due to the fact that its protagonist, Ezra Miller continues to be surrounded by constant controversy. The 29-year-old actor has been arrested multiple times over the past year, alongside the fact that they were charged with a felony burglary as recently as this week.
Warner Bros. is set to be considering three main ideas on how to proceed with the release of the movie, which would act as the fifteenth entry in the unofficially titled DC Extended Universe. The first idea would be Miller coming back home to their family in Vermont and seeking professional help.
Afterwards, the actor would give an interview in which he would explain his recent behavior, while doing very limited press for the film. If this scenario were to take place, the movie would release in theaters next summer, as originally planned.
The second idea would be releasing the film without Miller being involved in the press tour at all. This would lead to the studio recasting the role for any future projects involving the character, meaning a significant change for the franchise.
The third and final idea would be scrapping the film altogether. Miller plays multiple characters throughout the movie, and it would impossible to reshoot it with a new actor. In this scenario, Warner Bros. would get rid of a $200 million production, which would be unprecedented, to say the least.
It remains to be seen what will happen with the Scarlet Speedter’s first solo movie, but an announcement shouldn’t take long, as the film would need to begin its marketing campaign in the coming months for a projected release on June 23rd, 2023.
