The 29-year-old actor, Ezra Miller, once had a promising career that included starring roles in the Fantastic Beasts franchise and the DC Extended Universe. However, the actor has put their Hollywood stardom at risk with their recent run-ins with the law. Miller's actions have given birth to rumors that Warner Bros. Discovery is giving them the boot as soon as The Flash premieres on June 23.
However, it appears that Miller's future in the DCEU is still not unsalvageable.
After reportedly costing the DCEU an eight-part TV series, Miller has since apologized for their behavior. Now, they're believed to have met with Warner Bros. executives in California earlier this week.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor and their representatives met with Warner Bros. film chairs, Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy, as the report describes Miller as being "apologetic." In addition to formally apologizing in person, the actor took this opportunity to "reaffirm" their commitment to seeing The Flash hit the big screen.
With nearly a year still to go before The Flash comes out, a lot can happen. However, this is a positive development for the superhero flick amidst a tumultuous time for the DCEU. Fans are in desperate need of good news after Warner Bros. just postponed Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom as well as Shazam! Fury of the Gods to later dates.
In an ideal world, The Flash would have come out by July 1. The world would have known more about the direction that the DCEU is headed. Instead, we're all left clueless outside of the vague attempt at emulating the Marvel Cinematic Universe with its own ten-year plan. If it's any consolation, The Flash tested well among audiences, so this at least guarantees that the film is worth the wait.
