Depends on how put of control Ezra Miller's spiral becomes. If they could just lock him away for a month so the news cycle moves on, they could be fine to release it.

Then again, cancel culture crowds a bit hungry. Not a lot to cancel lately.

Ahh yes, that evil cancel culture going after a grown man who grooms minors and kidnaps people. It’s a witch hunt!

But they're trans. Canceling them at this juncture would be the cherry on top of a crap-sundae.

How dare you call them a man?

Looks like canceling's back on the menu, boys!

Oh. Uhhhh. I meant going after WB for releasing the movie if they do.

No one in their right mind would be opposed to cancelling out Miller. There's some seriously loose screws in that noggin.

There's a bunch of different reasons, depending on who you ask/what rumors you listen to.

Fans want to see it happen. DCEU execs don't (if rumors are to be believed). Zac Snyder doesn't seem to like the character finding him too 'light hearted' for Zac's vision of the DCEU.

The reason I find most compelling at the moment is that...the Arrowverse and the DCEU movieverse exist as two wholly separate entities, and I think that given the amount of problems the DCEU already has...mixing the tv shows and movies probably isn't on their to-do list.

Hey guys, just a quick reminder that Ezra identifies as non-binary, so calling them "he/him" isn't correct or appropriate.

Actually itís perfectly appropriate since I had absolutely no idea how they identified until your sanctimonious post.

That post is not doing what you think it is, it just kind of makes you look like an #######.

To clarify, my post wasn't even directed at you. If you felt the need to say anything, the most you should have said was you didn’t know and you’ll make sure to correct your mistake, instead of whatever the hell that was.

Though they did allow Ezra Miller's Flash to show up in an episode of the Crisis On Infinite Earths Arrowversse crossover event, opening the door for a connection between the two universes.

Then you should use person rather than man if you donít know. Defaulting to singular they or gender less language should be tried. Also if you do make a mistake rather than say you were right to do it you say okay will fix in future.

The Arrowverse is apparently done.

One of the crazy things in this topsy turvy world of ours what with high energy prices, hyper-inflation and wacky wide, wide world of sports is exactly at what point did a bunch of film executives hunker down in a room one day and decide the direction of their comic-book Universe needs someone at the helm.

And then they decided to hitch their wagon to Zack Snyder....

Baffling.

Allowing him to do a panel by panel retelling of Watchmen instilled a lot of false confidence in a charlatan.
