Though “Batgirl” was scrapped, we still have “The Flash” to look forward to. Sort of. With Ezra Miller‘s chaotic couple of years, one would think maybe it was time for Warner Bros. to make some decisions. They’d be losing a lot of money, but considering how much Miller has been in the news in a negative light, it might be worth it to cut their losses. To make sure Miller was still willing and able to be Wally West/The Flash, WB execs apparently had a bit of an intervention.
During funeral screening for “Batgirl,” there was another important meeting happening on the lot. Miller, their agent, and Warner Bros.’ Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy reportedly had a a talk with Ezra to determine what was happening. Rumors of WB putting it on the chopping block have been running amok, and at this point, fans wouldn’t be surprised if it did get shelved.
Miller reportedly reaffirmed their commitment to the movie. Ezra is currently seeking treatment for what they’re calling an “intense crisis.” They also apologized for the string of events that have happened this year.
“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller’s statement reads. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
Details of the meeting have not been revealed, but we hope it was a wake up call for Miller, who genuinely loves playing The Flash. We’re hoping they get the help they need, and can carry on without further issues. Mostly because we really want to see Michael Keaton as Batman again. But also, getting Miller healthy and happy.
“The Flash” is due to hit theaters June 23, 2023.
