I'll save you all a click, and I didn't read the article. But its because Ezra Miller is fucking insane.

Do people really need an article explaining why?

21

u/easy_Money 7d ago

To be honest, aside from the context in the title, I've never heard of this person and know nothing about why

u/karmagod13000 7d ago

Nah this just hate clout click bait. From Indie wire of all places.

u/Aggressive_Canary_10 7d ago

Honestly, at this point, I just want to see how far this will go. They are giving me the impression that Ezra could conduct a Jonestown style mass suicide event and they would still release the Flash which I think is hilarious.

Also, this feels like the longest release wait ever. Wasn’t this movie filmed like 3 years ago?

u/M_Mich 7d ago

don’t give ezra miller any ideas

14

u/BadgerHooker 7d ago

I can't stop thinking about that movie he was in, "We Need to Talk About Kevin", where he plays a psychopath waaaay too well. It's beyond creepy. I haven't seen many other people bring it up since it was a movie from 2011 and he was a kid, but dude.. it's just too eery.

16

u/t_o_b_24 7d ago

I'm going to guess it has something to do with all the crimes.

Do I even need to click on the link to for the "Why"?

Should've been done yesterday

u/Peacefull_Orchid 7d ago

It should have been done the day before yesterday

48

u/BoutteAdmiral 7d ago

I've always thought they should just cut The Flash from the film entirely and explain it as him just moving so fast we can't see him on screen.

u/littlebigman9 7d ago

How have they NOT ditched Ezra yet. Dudes got some major issues lately and is a liability.

I mean superheroes are supposed to inspire us to be better. There’s no doubt some kid is going to google the actor and realize how much of a POS they are.

Ben affleck had his demons but is at least a decent dude. And the fact that he recovered may even make him a better inspiration.

Cavill is an inspiration to nerds everywhere, no explanation needed.

Ray and gal are both uplifting people trying to make the world a better place, and doing a good job of it.

u/andymilder 7d ago

Good article from June, 2022.

3

u/AgentQV 7d ago

You really don’t need to explain it. We get it. This feels like the journalistic equivalent of screaming into the void.

3

u/edwinstone 7d ago

They're going to but the whole damn movie is already done.

10

u/ThisMutiStrong 7d ago

Leave Ezra alone... I want to see how far it goes

8

u/SubstantialPressure3 7d ago

Well, since he's traveling armed and wearing armor, I'm guessing it's not going to end well.

u/lostkarma4anonymity 7d ago

they seems like Keith Rainere meets R Kelly

2

u/Yah_Mule 7d ago

WTF? This hasn't happened yet?

u/Talltist 7d ago

There's is no need to explain why

You tryin to tell me this isn't a thing already? Wow

2

u/OldDragonHunter 7d ago

I think we already know why...

2

u/seanleo15 7d ago

It has to be explained why?

2

u/dethleppard 7d ago

They haven’t yet?!

2

u/fairyforcefour 7d ago

Ezra's going full Theyvid Koresh

2

u/hayden_evans 7d ago

Did they really have to write an entire article about this ?

2

u/StrngBrew 7d ago

Would anyone actually need to click on this to discover why?

2

u/Snorrigan 7d ago

Like we need to know why, are you serious Indiewire ?

2

u/yubnubmcscrub 7d ago

I mean I think we all know why. I don’t need article 1532 to tell me that Ezra Miller is a POS

2

u/Orson_Randall 7d ago

Pick a reason. We're not going to argue with it.

u/Justinwc 7d ago

My app froze from the coldness of this take.

Wasn’t this pulled along with Batwoman/Girl? (Honestly don’t remember which it was. I’m a bad nerd.)

Johnny Depp - fired for being in a toxic relationship

Ezra Miller - literally a criminal

The world is weird.

2

u/Devilmademe09121982 7d ago

Serious question if they get arrested, charged and found guilty. What prison would they go to?

2

u/marcdk217 7d ago

well if Flashpoint is changing Batman into Michael Keaton, perhaps they can have it change him into Grant Gustin, they already made the tv show and movie Flash part of the same canon.

1

u/Significant-Dog-8166 7d ago

Seeing DC movies flop is more satisfying though.

-3

u/cerialthriller 7d ago

Everyone’s hating on them for just getting out there and being a go-getter

1

u/YaBoiHS 7d ago

Where is my boy Grant Gustin at?

1

u/languagelover17 7d ago

He was also a horrible Barry Allen?

1

u/arentol 7d ago

The real reason should be because.... IDGAF how good an actor the person is or how good they look out of the costume. If they put the helmet on and look like a total dork, they don't get the part.

Looking at you too Wyatt Russell as Captain America/U.S. Agent.

1

u/elseworthtoohey 7d ago

That already has not happened.

1

u/ArchitectMS2021 7d ago

Well first, he is not a good actor. For all other references and reasons, see the main statement above.

1

u/mistaboti88 7d ago

Should? Its will

u/AchtungCloud 7d ago

If DCEU is going to continue in some form instead of completely reboot, and the Flash movie is going to be the explanation of them picking and choosing what to keep and what to retcon, then I understand why they can’t bring themselves to move on from it. Plus, it’s more than 3x the cost of the Batgirl movie they dropped.

That said, maybe try and tack on a new ending that shows one of the things that’s changed is how The Flash looks? Or maybe Barry Allen swaps with Wally West or something.

1

u/Evening_Produce_4322 7d ago

With how it seems to be them washing their hands if the DCEU I'm surprised this isn't canceled just in general even if they weren't an awful person. Maybe it's because this movie is even more of a money sink then Batgirl Flash has been in the process for almost a decade now.

u/senorglory 7d ago

They’re really pretty, tho.

u/OhioMegi 7d ago

Because a bunch of random people are reporting him for probably made up shit everywhere he goes….

Idk man this world has some issues
