The Flash hasn’t been canceled—yet. Despite recent charges for felony burglary and assault and allegations of grooming, Ezra Miller is still set to reprise their role as speedy superhero Barry Allen in a solo movie, The Flash, on June 23, 2023 next year. Miller announced on Monday that they are seeking help for their “complex mental health issues.”

“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 said in a statement. “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.” The bad press has reportedly jumpstarted talks at Warner Bros. about whether to shelve the $200 million movie that was meant to tie together the various parallel universes in the DC Extended Universe.

But the question of whether to shelve The Flash comes amid a major shakeup at parent company Warner Bros. Discovery. The studio surprised Hollywood by canceling the near-completed $90 million Batgirl film that had been made for HBO Max. Warner Bros. Discovery contextualized the decision within a larger strategy to pivot away from making films for streaming. That’s a major shift for a studio that released all its films directly to streaming for a year during the pandemic to build up HBO Max subscriptions.

Here’s what to know about the future of The Flash and DC superhero movies, given the controversy brewing around Miller. In the comics, The Flash has long been closely associated with the multiverse. The character of Barry Allen has the power of superspeed and is so fast that he can traverse time and space. The character’s solo movie, The Flash, will be loosely adapted from DC’s famous Flashpoint comic, in which Barry Allen changes his universe after traveling back in time in order to try to prevent his mother’s death. Barry’s time travel shenanigans accidentally create an apocalyptic present, and the superhero has to try to reverse the events.

After trying to take on Marvel at the box office pre-pandemic and largely falling flat, Warner Bros. has taken a “see what sticks” approach to churning out DC superhero films. Any hope for a cohesive storyline across all the movies and television series seems to be lost. We know from the trailer for The Flash that, in an effort to restore normalcy, Barry must team up with different versions of Batman, an alternate universe version of himself, and a version of Supergirl. The Flash might give Warner Bros. the opportunity to hit the reset button. The studio could fulfill Affleck’s wishes to retire from franchise fare by killing him off or recasting the part through parallel timeline shenanigans. They could also kill off whichever other characters aren’t working and replace them with new people and storylines.
