Due out next year, the delayed solo story revolving around the Scarlet Speedster is one of 2023’s most anticipated films.

This week, Miller, who uses they/them pronouns, was charged with felony burglary in Vermont for allegedly stealing several bottles of alcohol from a residence in May. The news followed reports of erratic behaviour earlier this year that includes two arrests in Hawaii and accusations that he groomed a 12-year-old child.

Now, adding to that, is news that a young mother and her three children who were allegedly living with Miller at the actor’s Vermont farm are missing, Rolling Stone reported Wednesday.

And in the midst of all this, is the fate of a $200-million superhero film that was supposed to reset the DC Extended Universe, reintroduce Michael Keaton’s Batman and pave a new era of storytelling.

According to sources who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros., the studio behind the upcoming release, is weighing three options.

With the movie not due out until next June, the 29-year-old could seek professional help and do limited press to promote a theatrical release.

If Miller refuses to seek help and continues to spiral, the film could still be released into theatres and the part recast for future DC projects.

The last scenario could see the studio shelving the movie entirely — a move they made earlier this month when they announced they were scrapping the $90-million Batgirl.

During the company’s Q2 earnings call last week, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav hinted the studio was sticking with the film, but this was prior to Miller’s burglary arrest and news that police cannot locate the mother and children who were allegedly staying with the actor.

“We have seen The Flash, Black Adam and Shazam 2. We are very excited about them. We’ve seen them. We think they are terrific, and we think we can make them even better,” Zaslav said.

Taking a soft swipe at Batgirl, Zaslav added: “We’re not going to launch a movie until it’s ready. We’re not going to launch a movie to make a quarter, and we’re not going to put a movie out unless we believe in it.”

Miller was cast as The Flash in 2014 and first cameoed as the hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad before reprising the role in 2017’s Justice League.

A solo film went through several iterations before It filmmaker Andy Muschietti took the reins in 2019.

“It’s been a long process to make sure we’ll get it right, but Warner Bros. is being very careful with it and that’s something I feel really honoured by and it’s something I appreciate. I’m stoked to get going,” Miller told the Toronto Sun in 2017.

“Every stage of this has been truly magical for me.”

Miller then geeked out about his love of comic books.

“I definitely read and continue to read comic books,” he enthused during our chat. “I was a fan of DC growing up and I was a big Batman fan. There was something about the horror and the scary elements of Batman that were attractive to me as a young kid. I also really loved the Silver Age Barry Allen in his purest form and I love the contemporary version, which is something we’re playing with in these films.”

But no matter the outcome of his legal headaches and the film’s fate, Miller is likely finished as the character.

“There is no winning in this for Warner Bros,” one studio source said in an interview with Deadline. “The hope is that the scandal will remain at a low level before the movie is released, and hope for the best to turn out.”
