‘The Flash’ Must Be Recast

by Noah Bair ‘24

With The Flash releasing later this month, the actor playing the titular speedster, Ezra Miller, is more in the spotlight than ever. Miller will earn upwards of half a million dollars for the film, in addition to a tremendous amount of publicity from the film. But, it is an understatement to say that Miller not only does not deserve the fame and riches that come from starring in the summer blockbuster, they do not deserve to have a job in Hollywood entirely. Miller has been arrested three times, and also been accused of grooming a 14-year old while on the set of Fantastic Beasts in 2017.

Despite this, DC Studios co-CEO Peter Safran says that Miller is “completely committed to their recovery” and the company is “fully supportive of that journey that they’re on right now.” While many have claimed that “cancel culture” has raged out of control, Miller is one that undoubtedly deserves to be blacklisted from Hollywood. They are a destructive, manipulative person who feeds off their fame to commit crimes with little to no consequence. DC has made it very clear that Miller is going to be the face of one of their most famous heroes, but behind the mask, they hired an actor who resembles a supervillain.
