What happened with Ezra Miller had put The Flash project on hold. Warner Bros. Discovery makes a final decision and decides this.
Flash is having a somewhat convulsive road to reach the big screen. The film, directed by Andy Muschietti (ITEM), is scheduled to be released in June 2023. The truth is that its release date was already delayed a few months ago, because it was originally going to be released in November 2022. On the other hand, its premiere has been in question for the last few months because of its leading star. Ezra Miller It has been the subject of many worrying accusations and various complaints.
As reported dead line exclusively a few weeks ago, the studio was considering various options for brand new Flash. Those options included:
- Bringing it to theaters as planned, albeit without much promotion.
- Release it directly on hbo maxaccepting a considerable economic loss.
The Deadline report also mentioned that David ZaslavPresident of Warner Bros Discoverywanted to make a decision soon regarding the film of DC Comics and Ezra Miller himself. That decision, apparently, has already been made by the studio.
The film will be released in theaters, as planned
In an exclusive report from Variety, the media outlet details the allegations against Ezra Miller. Variety states that Warner Bros. Pictures intends to keep the premiere of Flash exactly as planned, no changes.
“It’s unclear if Ezra Miller will continue to play the Scarlet Speedster in future projects, but Warner Bros. Discovery has committed to releasing The Flash in theaters in June 2023. The budget for the film will be $200 million. ».
This reaffirms previous information from Variety, which maintained that Warner Bros. wanted to go ahead with the theatrical release of the film, maintaining the original plans.
Throughout this year, many fans have proposed the premiere of Flash on HBO Max. They have even asked for a new actor to take on the role of the Scarlet Speedster. Something similar to what happened with Kevin Spacey in All The Money in the World (2017) or Chris D’Elia in Army of the Deadthe movie of Zack Snyder in Netflix. However, this option does not seem to interest Warner Bros. Discovery.
A superhero project that has cost a lot
Variety has reaffirmed that Flash It has been really expensive. As we have said, Deadline maintains that it has cost 200 million dollars. This makes premiering it on HBO Max, canceling its premiere, or even returning to production with another leading star completely unfeasible scenarios. It can’t be done. According to the information, the ‘recast’ was not contemplated at any time because “Ezra Miller is practically in all the scenes.”
It is worth noting that a previous report last month reported that Flash it had been “extraordinarily well received” in test screeners for the film. Theoretically, this could have been an additional factor for Warner Bros. to keep Ezra Miller’s project in theaters.
As for the actor, Variety’s sources said that Ezra Miller hopes to speak very soon about all the accusations that endanger his professional career and even his freedom. However, the star Flash she’s taking some time to “focus on her mental health and healing in the coming months.”
