DC fans threaten to boycott The Flash over Ezra Miller

Fans are divided The flash‘s new trailer.

In the trailer released during the Super Bowl on Monday (Feb. 13), viewers can see Ezra Miller’s title character traveling through time to prevent his mother’s murder, but unknowingly triggering changes that result in the creation of a multiverse .

While many people are “really excited” to see Michael Keaton’s Batman, others are skeptical of Miller’s involvement in the film due to the actor’s recent controversial behavior and arrests.

“Excited to see Michael Keaton as Batman again,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

Another person added: “The flash movie trailer just had my brain scrambled.

One person wrote: “Intrigued. Felt more like the CW crossover events than the Flashpoint storyline from the comics. Many fan Easter eggs. We’ll see how it hangs together as a script.

Commenting on Miller’s involvement in the film, one fan wrote, “I wish they’d fired Ezra Miller.”

Another person agreed, commenting, “Yeah, I’d introduce the multiverse to try and move on from Ezra Miller as Flash as soon as possible if I were DC.”

Internet personality Oli London also questioned why DC would give Miller “a starring role in a big movie”.

Another person wrote, “I could have everyone on this infernal site tell everyone that the trailer for The flash movie is the best movie trailer of all time, and as long as Ezra Miller is attached, I won’t watch the movie or anything related to it.

Author Ella Dawson wrote, “Ezra Miller is terrible and I’m not going to watch The flash.”

Journalist Carolyn Hinds wrote: “Michael Keaton…I love his Batman, but not enough to overlook or ignore that The flash starring in this film is Ezra Miller, who is still facing the consequences of the harm and violence inflicted on people, including minors, around the world. It is still NO for me.”

The cast of the movie also includes Michael Shannon’s General Zod from Man of Steel and the debut of Sasha Calle’s Supergirl and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Antje Traue and Maribel Verdú.

The flash represents Miller’s first standalone film as the high-speed hero since appearing as a cameo in 2016 Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The film has had a rough journey due to Miller’s numerous controversies, including arrests and reports of erratic behavior that stretched from Hawaii to Vermont.

The allegations Miller has faced include choking a woman in a bar in Iceland in 2020, grooming and “psychologically manipulating” an 18-year-old from North Dakota, and hosting a woman and child at their ranch in Vermont where “guns were reportedly lying around.” ”.

They recently apologized for their actions, saying they have begun ongoing treatment for “complex mental health issues”.

The flash will be released in cinemas on June 16.
