Ezra Miller is going to be fired as The Flash. Warner Bros. has it clear. These are the 4 ideas that he manages today to do it.
This morning we have counted it and it seems that the decision has been made. Warner Bros Discovery does not want that Ezra Miller I continued to be part of DC Extended Universe What Flash. The actor who plays Barry Allen in the DC Universe has bottomed out with so much controversy, so much controversy and so much denunciation. The last one arises from the environment of a 12-year-old minor and his family. The continuity of the Hollywood star is more than complete. There will be no more chances.
However, the new CEO of the company after the merger, David Zaslav, you are still not clear on how you want to handle the matter. They are debating in the studio before making a final decision. The communication medium Deadline has been able to speak with people from Warner Bros. Discovery and these are the 4 possibilities that they handle today to fire Ezra Miller as The Flash.
1- The cancellation of the tour of ‘The Flash’
The movie Flash opens next year. For Warner Bros. Discovery, this was the rosetta stone on which they wanted to build the rebirth of the DCEU. David Zaslav expected to get in line for Marvel Studios and follow his model of success with this film. However, things have become very complicated with the Ezra Miller thing and now they have no security. They fear that doing a tour with this guy will end up becoming a real hell, lose a millionaire investment and end up harming the premiere. Therefore, they value the possibility of canceling that tour and only doing a question and answer.
2- Release the Ezra Miller movie on HBO Max
Another option is to stop investing money in Flash and release it directly on hbo max. That would mean saving tens of millions in marketing, advertising, reshoots and a long list of possibilities. Quite simply, it would be admitting that the product has been harmed by Ezra Miller and that Warner Bros. Discovery is throwing in the towel to find a solution. It is accepting reality and moving forward.
3- Fire the actor after the premiere
The third option that Warner Bros. manages is to follow the line that they took with Johnny Depp. The actor’s alcoholic problems and the trial for defamation with Amber Heard they had the studio fire him after Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. So, they did a ‘recast’ with Mads Mikkelsen. They are evaluating that same possibility with Ezra Miller: brand new Flash and then fire the actor to replace him with a new one to play Barry Allen in the DCEU.
4- Make a ‘recast’ immediately
The last option is the most expensive and is the one that David Zaslav likes least, because the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery is a guy who likes to manage money above all else. Making a ‘recast’ of The Flash right now would mean expelling Ezra Miller, hiring a new actor, going back to filming with Andy Muschietti and replacing all the scenes that are already filmed with the new interpreter. The investment, which is currently around 200 million, could double.
