Ezra Miller shot a day of pickups last week on the Warner Bros. lot for the standalone “The Flash” movie, TheWrap has exclusively learned.
“The Flash” is expected to reset Warner Bros.’ DC movie timeline and set a new stage for DC films going forward. According to an insider with knowledge of the project, the film has been testing positively.
Miller and their agent met with Warner Bros.’ film heads back in August in what TheWrap has learned was described as a “very positive” meeting about the future of the upcoming DC film “The Flash.”
Inspired by the landmark comic “Flashpoint,” the film will see The Flash travel across various multiverses, encountering other versions of himself as well as a version of Supergirl from an alternate timeline.
Miller and their agent Scott Metzger met with new WB film executives Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank to discuss the film, though no other details about the meeting were disclosed.
Miller, the embattled star of “The Flash” who has drawn national headlines for a series of troubling personal events and attention from law enforcement, previously announced they had entered into treatment for “complex mental health issues” and apologized in a statement to media about their recent behavior.
“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,” the statement said. “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.”
Warner Bros. has not deviated from its plans to release “The Flash” in June 2023, with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav reaffirming the studio’s release plans during the company’s latest quarterly earnings calls.
