Poll conducted morning consultation shows that 2 in 5 American adults (42% of participants) think a movie should be canceled if it’s in the same situation as The Flash. The company asked members to decide whether the studio should release such a film, highlighting various allegations against lead star Ezra Miller without naming the actor. The selection was based on unforeseen circumstances reported by Warner Bros.
The charges listed included “owning an unlicensed cannabis farm”, “disorderly conduct”, “threatening others”, “burglary”, “leaving a firearm unattended by children”, “physical abuse” and “child care”. The poll concluded by asking participants to make a final decision based on “all of the above”: 42% of participants think the film should be cancelled, 33% say the project should be re-shot with a different main star, 10% think the film should be shelved, and 14% say that the film should be released as is, without any changes being made.
According to a Morning Consult survey, Warner Bros. need to be seriously considered. Many have spoken out about Miller’s actions and how they have already tarnished The Flash, a film that is supposed to pave the way for the future of the DC Extended Universe, lamenting that Warner Bros. instead, Batgirl was cancelled.
The Morning Consult poll continued with 43% of participants strongly supporting the studio issuing a statement condemning the lead actor’s actions and 48% strongly supporting removing the lead actor from the film’s marketing. As many as 47% of the participants strongly support the studio, which broke off relations with the actor for future projects.
