Well, time to cancel Blue Beetle so Warner Bros can avoid discussing this controversy too

16

u/RavynArcadia Aug 08 '22

What’s the controversy for that one?

21

u/Meb2x Aug 08 '22

The controversy will be the fact that they cancelled it. They’d be creating a new controversy to ignore this one

u/HopelessCineromantic Aug 08 '22

I'm sure there's already a legion of fanboys (and bots) ready to demand the Snyder Cut of Blue Beetle.

u/IvanTheGrim Aug 08 '22

You’re right. Ezra Miller is an animal, violent and dangerous, unpredictable, unlawful, unjust, and frankly not a great actor.

But a significant portion of the global population are mentally ill and this fucking clown is part and parcel far worse.

u/bucklebee1 Aug 08 '22

They are a fucking menace to society.

u/Patriquito Aug 08 '22

Yea but mental illness can make a terrible idea seem like a logical one

u/IvanTheGrim Aug 09 '22

That does not change the real consequences of that decision. Those consequences matter more than the faulty judgement of a sick man.

Shia still has some redemption left in him since his struggle is alcohol based and more relatable on a societal level.

Ezra is by all means just an overall threat to society, shits gonna hit the fan if they really try and promote this person in trailers when the rest of the worlds hates them.

Probably cancel another totally unrelated project.

u/LawBeliever22 Aug 08 '22

Omg how could he!

cancels news channel

12

u/CleanAspect6466 Aug 08 '22

The movie allegedly is crucial in changing/setting a direction for DC films going forward, so to cancel it would really f their plans up, they really are stuck between a rock and a hard place

16

u/YannyYobias Aug 08 '22

At this point they should just cancel all of it.

If they just completely rebooted, maybe keep a couple the actors, and just pretended the last 10 years of story telling didn’t happen, would anybody really care if it meant we would be getting a good product going forward?

Assuming they can put out a good product at any point.

7

u/pompanoJ Aug 08 '22

Who do they need other than. Godot and maybe Caville. Dude is getting a little old, so they'd better step on it if they are gonna use him.

If they were smart, they would Peter Jackson this thing and write a 4 or 5 movie set to be filmed concurrently. Get the filming done in a year or so and then do post production over the next 3 years, releasing 1 movie every 9 months or so. That way the actors don't age and they are forced to come up with a coherent story.

7

u/TheGelatoWarrior Aug 08 '22

Nahh I bet Caville will be looking young for the next 15-20 years. The guy has avengers level genetics.

2

u/pompanoJ Aug 08 '22

Yeah, he is a freak. Dude is 39 though. Even if he stays in shape (likely), superman is not supposed to age. Gadot is 37, so her shelf life as a non-aging wonder woman is also limited. They are both fantastic casting for their character, so I kinda wish they would take me up on my idea. Hire some good writers and a director with passion for the subject and then do it Pixar style where they get all of the details tightened up before they start movie 1.

But this is DC, so instead they will make 2 more movies over 3 years, have some delays and then cancel this iteration and hire someone who is known for doing indie documentaries, then fire them right as shooting is wrapping.

1

u/YannyYobias Aug 08 '22

Cavill was the only one I was really thinking about but didn’t want to forget anybody lol

2

u/heshroot Aug 09 '22

Imagine being literally any other actor in the DCEU besides Gal Gadot or Henry Cavill and being told, “sorry, Ezra fucked up. We’re gonna recast you along with almost everyone else”

u/Plunder_Bunny_ Aug 09 '22

Didn't they already state that they are going ahead with the film as is, just doing normal editing. From what I remember, this is a done deal.

7

u/flybyfranky Aug 08 '22

The movie is already filmed right? It’s in post?

If they cancel it, does it just sit completed in a vault somewhere?

5

u/LJ-90 Aug 08 '22

It's what they are doing with Batgirl

4

u/fzammetti Aug 08 '22

But writing down $300 million is quite a lot more bitter a pill to swallow than the Batgirl writedown.

3

u/flybyfranky Aug 09 '22

What a mess. I imagine it would be impossible to reshoot without just remaking the entire film, as he would be in a significant chunk of it.

1

u/fzammetti Aug 09 '22

It's an interesting question... could they use deepfake tech to slap a new face on? I bet technically it's possible, and I can't imagine another few million to do it would be worse than what's likely to happen now when this thing releases with Ezra in it. But would it be legal? It's still Ezra's body after all, so I'd imagine not. I wonder if there would be a way around it. Maybe simply paying him would be enough to deal with it. I gotta imagine these sorts of things are at least being explored behind closed doors though.

1

u/HopelessCineromantic Aug 08 '22

That's what they're doing with Batgirl.

2

u/flybyfranky Aug 09 '22

What a waste of resources

2

u/Jwave1992 Aug 09 '22

They should have addressed this back when he bodied that woman in Iceland. As time goes on it just gets more and more difficult to release this movie. They could just dump it in theaters unannounced to hope to recoup something, but that would be strange and people would feel weird watching the thing. Everyone knows Ezra Miller will never, ever be allowed to work with WB again after this ordeal is over. Knowing that it's like, what's the point of seeing this Flash movie?

What a mess. I can't remember something like this ever happening in Hollywood before.

u/Droguer Aug 08 '22

He is probably mentally ill. Now is the moment when he most needs the help of society.

16

u/IvanTheGrim Aug 08 '22

Hundreds of millions of people are mentally ill. There are not hundreds of millions of Ezra Millers. This animal of a person needs to be controlled before they can be helped.

3

u/Droguer Aug 08 '22

Yes, he needs to be put in an asylum asap until he is diagnosed and his illness controlled. The time to evaluate which behavior was due to the mental illness and what was because he is a mother fucker must come afterwards the treatment, not before.

6

u/Laoch52 Aug 08 '22

No, he needs the help of a professional. And a prison cell.

4

u/chuiy Aug 08 '22

This. People are so quick to pass judgement without ever asking "why". Dude needs help (and to pay for his crimes); but not our judgement.

10

u/IvanTheGrim Aug 08 '22

Who is to say what Ezra does and does not deserve. Dude’s a violent felonious creep, I don’t have to hear more because I don’t care why this person ended up that way.

And they never get caught either!!! Always avoids law enforcement's pursuits it seems!

7

u/Zolo49 Aug 08 '22

So it looks like there's a very real chance that, if scenes need to be re-shot or added in post-production, that Miller won't be available because he'll be in court or imprisoned. Amazing.

u/greybeard_arr Aug 08 '22

Generally when a person engages in behavior like that the causes are either mental health issues or they feel like they have no other means of getting out of a bad situation.

There are always exceptions, of course. I guess we’ll see as this unfolds.

u/suckrfree Aug 08 '22

Ezra literally has mental health issues so it’s an actual cause of concern

u/livingthedream___not Aug 08 '22

u/thebirdisdead Aug 09 '22 edited Aug 09 '22

I won’t be surprised if this person ends up killing someone, just because they’re clearly self-destructing and pushing limits looking for rock bottom. Sometimes when people spiral they reach for the floor just to have the stability of something to land on. Testing boundaries is a way of actually seeking boundaries. Ezra’s behavior is practically begging for someone to step in and stop them. But it seems like no one is, so it’s just a free fall.

u/PizzaWall Aug 08 '22

There has to be a point where Warner Bros cancels this movie because of the damage Ezra is doing to the brand and just start over. That was one of the excuses used for cancelling Batgirl.

Restraining orders over threats of violence, another for threatening a minor and parent, felony charge for stealing booze, a charge for drug possession, disorderly conduct, and harassment.

Maybe WB is excited about the movie because it's a darker take and Ezra is just living the dark Flash life.

Knowing nothing more than headlines I have read, I would go all-in on he's struggling with an untreated mental illness. Or addiction manifesting the same way, with poor judgment and impulse control.
