There's Already A Script For The Flash 2

Fans of "The Flash" might finally be able to enjoy some good news after what seemed like a full year of mostly negative reporting about the franchise's troubled star. Barry Allen, better known as The Flash, has been played by Ezra Miller since the character was first introduced to the DC Extended Universe in "Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice" in 2016. Since then, Miller has reprised the role as The Flash in "Suicide Squad," "Justice League," and now, in the character's first solo movie, "The Flash," set to be released on June 23, 2023.

At this point in the year, Warner Bros. should be out there promoting their upcoming movie, but instead, it seems like they are just trying to trudge forward through a swamp of bad press. Miller has had a troubled year in 2022 with multiple arrests and allegations of grooming and harassment. Most recently, CNN reported that they pleaded not guilty to the charge of burglary after being accused of breaking into a neighbor's home in Vermont and stealing several bottles of liquor. That charge came after a slew of other arrests and allegations earlier in the year.

In March 2022, Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment, and then a few weeks later, arrested again for second-degree assault while living in Hawaii. These came on the heels of Miller being accused of grooming and manipulating an 18-year-old North Dakota resident as well as a 12-year-old child from Massachusetts — where the child's mother issued a temporary protection order against the actor.

But after that deluge of bad news about Miller, there finally might be something positive for fans of the fastest man alive to get excited about.

It appears The Flash is moving forward with or without Ezra Miller

Even though "The Flash" is still far from hitting the big screen, the sequel is already in the production pipeline. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script for "The Flash 2" has already been written, and by none other than David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the "Aquaman" movie author. Whether or not that movie actually gets made is another question, however. "The Flash" still needs to do well when it is released in 2023, and there needs to be some sort of resolution to all of the controversy that Ezra Miller created.

But assuming that "The Flash" is a hit in theaters, it would be a hard sell not to produce the sequel — even if Miller ends up being let go from the role. Some rumors suggest that the studio could do some damage control by replacing them in the role of Barry Allen, or even move on from that character altogether and go with the Wally West version of The Flash. But as of right now, reports suggest that Miller is still filming new scenes for "The Flash," so anything is still possible.

Whether or not Warner Bros. decides to keep Miller as The Flash or find a new star to anchor the franchise, the popular superhero will likely live to fight another day in the DC Universe.
