I’ve never seen a franchise implode before. Leave it to the WB to not only do it with the DCEU, but do it with such speed that the Flash couldn’t keep up.
With the DCEU rapidly unraveling, due to a series of missteps and terrible decisions, such as Batfleck, releasing Wonder Woman ’84 at the height of a global pandemic, and STILL not give Cavill a Superman sequel; there couldn’t possibly be a worse time for one of their key players to find themselves in hot water.
Apparently Ezra Miller didn’t get the memo. At first, one might be confused when reading that sentence. Are we talking about the same gifted actor who sent chills down our spine in “We need to talk about Kevin?” The actor who charmed critics with his performance in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”?
Unfortunately, you are not confused. Since his drug arrest in 2011 Ezra Miller has slowly become unhinged in his recent years. It started off innocently enough, Ezra Miller is not the first person, and he won’t be the last to be arrested for drugs. However, Ezra Miller’s missteps have allegedly made their way into much more dangerous territory. Within the last two weeks, in Hawaii; Miller has allegedly been excessively violent with two separate women.
- Reportedly choke slamming one, and laughing about it.
- He followed that up by allegedly hurling a chair across a bar and hitting a young lady in the face. No apology has been made.
- A couple on vacation in Hilo, Hawaii had to file a temporary restraining order against Miller, after allegedly bursting into their hostel room , issuing a series of threats; and stealing their wallets, passports, and other belongings.
Warner Brothers has held an emergency meeting on the matter. As far as any competent person can tell; this “meeting” was probably an excuse to have a fancy lunch downtown, and use it as a tax write off. Warner Brothers has done absolutely nothing effective. They’re bailing a sinking ship with a teaspoon.
It seems to be a long, elaborate episode of “Keystone Kops” over at Warner Brothers.
- The first “Suicide Squad” movie was a disaster that sent Will Smith packing.
- Ben Affleck- an A-list actor, with multiple accolades under his belt; is their only actor to play Batman, and not receive a feature film of his own.
- Warner ran Zack Snyder off of the lot.
- Now, they are still trying to wash the egg off of their face after Joss Whedon’s dark side was unearthed.
Then, we have Amber Heard. An actress who gets to keep her job within the DCEU, despite allegedly doing things that are so vile and disgusting; that I’m not even quite sure that I can describe them in this article. I will just tell you to bring your own sheets if you find yourself staying at her house, and keep her away from the cutlery.
Meanwhile, Johnny Depp can’t get a job as an extra in a Lifetime movie. So, along with the staggering ineptitude on the Warner Brother’s lot, we are also adding double standards into the mix. Heard herself literally said that people wouldn’t believe Depp’s claims of domestic abuse because he’s a man.
Warner Brothers is a rudderless ship. They have no Feige, no Kennedy running the show with a unique and inspiring vision. Their ineptitude is contagious, the hypocrisy is toxic, and the answer to their problem is so simple.
Burn down the DCEU.
Nuke it, launch the ashes on an express route to Pluto, and rebuild it with a new foundation. “It’s the only way to be sure.”
Find a Superman who can carry the DCEU Franchise. He is the face of the Justice League, make sure he is marketable, and mentally stable. Have him present for all of the auditions to see how anybody auditioning for The Flash, Wonder Woman, or Cyborg interacts with him. While we are on the subject, do something with Cyborg…anything. Robocop was made almost 40 years ago. He looked better than Cyborg did in the “Justice League” movie. That was, and still is embarrassing.
Somebody at Warner Brothers needs to take charge of this situation, and they need to do it now. If they don’t, They are going to find out the hard way that malaise, and hypocrisy are a terrible legacy to leave behind.
