According to Hollywood ReporterWarner Bros. currently has three possible contingency plans for the future of The Flash. First, and Warner Bros. clearly hoping this will be the way forward, Ezra Miller can seek professional help, guided in some form by their mother, who is apparently intent on bringing Miller back to their farm in Vermont. If this happens, they can probably be rehabilitated (or rehabilitated). enough) to the point where a few key interviews and a strong marketing team can turn Miller’s public image into something resembling a redemption arc.
The second strategy is that if Miller doesn’t want rehab, but somehow holds out for the next year until the film’s release in a way that doesn’t cause further damage, Warner Bros. intends to promote the film without them. Basically, instead of good behavior, the studio will tolerate bad behavior as long as it’s quiet and out of the spotlight. The third option for Warner Bros. is an opportunity she wants to avoid at all costs – to cancel the film and eat up the $200 million loss. This won’t be the first time the studio has canceled a completed film.
Warner Bros. seems obsessed with releasing The Flash, and if the current headline trend continues like this, the studio will likely insist on its second contingency and simply ignore the performer in the public eye.
